    Recently in another thread (one of the money saving ones) there was some discussion about shopping clubs and in particular online shopping w/shipping costs... then today I saw this in my news reader:

    [saving on groceries]

    what shopping clubs do you belong to and how do you get the most out of them?

    we have been members of costco/ for a while and it is worth it, but I feel like it's often hit or miss with what the physical stores have for selection. Certain things I know they'll always have but the rest, [​IMG]

    The article mentions Amazon grocery and my husband also mentioned Amazon Prime the other day... and it sounded interesting. Anyone tried it?

    I also place orders through Office Depot and over a certain $ amt it is free delivery, even if it's not all one shipment. They carry more thank just office stuff; so far it's worked out pretty good for house stuff too!

    * We have costco's all over. 1 even sells gas. I have 'hinted' to friends who go to sam's that I would like to go sometime. They all say sure, but I just went-- So, apparently, I haven't got the secret handshake quite right yet. I RARELY shop o/l.

    I also use them (costco, sam's & amazon) and like it. I also saved tons of money at the commissary sales and such.

    I take advantage of free shipping quantities to so it works out pretty well.

    There is a Sam’s a couple of miles from my office, with a large family I shop at Sam’s all of the time, for everything, food, clothes, electronics and fill up the gas tank 2 times a week. Sam’s saves me a ton. The selection isn’t the greatest, but the bulk packaging and pricing usually makes up for it.
