Which do you have near you? Do you have a preference?

I only had a costco near me. There is a BJ's but I would have to drive 20 minutes past a costco to get to it.

Now there is a BJ's opening right down the road. Same distance to either one. Which one do you prefer and why?

I've only got a Costco, it along with Walmart and No Frills are the cheapest for everything here. Wish our Walmart had a grocery section

We don't have a BJ's (what is it?)
We have Cosco or Sam's Club that are both wholesale stores. They are both about the same. Sam's Club is closer but when I was paying for membership, I realized I never went there so I don't pay for it now. We shop at one of the MANY Super Walmart stores and they have lots of generic stuff you can't get at the wholesale stores.

We don't have a BJ's. I would probably go to costco though, I get 2% rebate from my membership and also from my credit card I use there (I pay the full balance every month) so between those 2 things I'd go there.

I have a BJ's membership and while I don't use it a ton, I use it enough to make the membership worth it. The Costco is like a 20 minute drive and I think I may have been in there once.....years ago. I also had a Sam's club membership several years ago, but I did not like that place for some reason. I've had a BJs membership for several years now. I got several things for Christmas from them...they had some really good deals on toys.

Costco is too far away so we have a membership to Sams Club which is less than a mile from our home. The main reason is for the gas. It's located across the street from my son's bus stop so I can fill up on my way to pick him up.

I rarely shop in Sams Club though. When I go there I seem to spend way more money than I should It seems mandatory to spend $200 and the math on the TP and laundry soap doesn't justify extras I always walk out with.
