Costco versus BJ's Club
Not sure why I am bothering to ask. But they recently opened a BJ's Club much nearer to my house than the various Costco's which I find my wife and I go to rather frequently.
Today I took a "tour" on a one day pass. Maybe this is a smaller BJ's club than most or something, but I it did not seem up to Costco standards at all, and I saw nothing it had that Costco did not have. I mean Costco's selection is often not extensive, which makes sense, but BJ's Club seemed really limited. Maybe some of the prices seemed slightly better. Maye the price difference makes BJ's worth it, but I see no way of easily figuring out any price differences.
Am I overlooking something? I would probably join if it made sense to do so, just because it is closer, but at $50, it does not seem appealing, and may not otherwise be worth the trip even if I had a free membership.
If the other BJ Club stores are bigger and "better," it might be worth a trial, I suppose.
Does BJ's Club ever have discount deals on membership?
BJ's Club does take VISA credit cards, which is a plus.
Also, I suppose, thinking about it a bit, I do like what I hear about Costco's employment practices and do not like what I hear about Walmart's.
The bad news is you’re falling through the air, nothing to hang on to, no parachute. The good news is there’s no ground.
