I have recently had two experiences with Costco that have convinced me that they are not what they appear to be. I was about to order LG appliances three months ago when the price jumped $1,000 over night. I called Costco customer service and they said they couldn’t do anything about it. I went to Home Depot and saved $1,200. Today, I had Costco out to bid Cambria countertops. The bid was $1,000 higher than two other bids I had. The salesperson acted surprised. I doubt that highly. I will NEVER shop Costco again.
