ILoveCostco.com is a personal blog website. I am not affiliated with Costco in any way. I don't know anyone at Costco. I just happen to I love Costco. A lot of people follow my blog because my stories are extremely boring and ordinary. This is my struggle to save money, enjoy life alone as a single man, and trying to ultimately become a family man. I will shut down this website when I have a family of my own. Let's see if I will get there.

Costco is for everyone - Even if you live alone like me, Costco will help you elevate your life-style so you can enjoy more while spending same amount of money.

New Citi Bank card

Jun
22
Body: 

I just activated my new Citi Card on Monday.  I also tried to add it to my iPhone wallet for Apple Pay, a feature I use often.  I had trouble adding this card so I contacted Citi customer service.  They currently have no plans to make Apple Pay available to card holders.  Very disappointing and I let them know if that's the case, I would only be using my new Citi Visa at Costco.

Important Reminder - Your AmEx card will stop working tomorrow

Jun
19

This is important.  I wanted to double check with some of you.

Starting tomorrow, your AmEx/Costoco card will stop working PERIOD. Don't get confused and think you can still use your AmEx/Costco card at other places outside of Costco. 

Your card will stop working completely.  According to AmEx website, you cannot even access your web account starting tomorrow (June 20, 2016).

Good luck.

Garage Sale - June 11, 2016

Jun
15

This is one of the top reasons why people enjoy garage sales.

It was past 10AM.  I was coming home from garage sales.  By 10AM, every garage sale had 100+ visitors checking out their stuff.  So, you can't expect to find anything significant.

When I was almost home, I saw my neighbor having a garage sale yet again.  I didn't buy anything from them last 2 times.  But, I stopped by anyway, because you never know...  That's the whole game, you never know.

Then I found this solid 925 (Sterling) silver earings with Turquoise (?).  I believe they are vintage.  I still need to clean them.  They were 50 Cents!  My educated guess is that I can sell them for $15-$20 (plus shipping) on eBay.  But, I'm not going to sell them on eBay.  It's too much hassle.  And I don't want to pay fees to eBay & PayPal.

I would rather sell them to my website visitor for $6.  Let me know if you want to buy them. :)   (* plus $3 shipping).

Too Much Free Time - Columbo

Jun
15

On Sunday, I watched a few episodes of Columbo (70's TV show).

One of the episodes showed a building in LA. So, I got online and looked for that building.  I am pretty sure I found the building.

Then I took a nap.  ZZzz....   Crazy good timez.  :)

From Columbo (70's)

What I found online. 40 years later.

Keep using AmEx until 19th - Start Using Citi at 20th

Jun
09

Keep using your American Express Costco card through June 19th (Sunday)
Start using your new Citi card on Monday, June 20th. 

Your Costco rewards will be carried over to your Citi card automatically (according to Costco).

If you received your new Citi card, activate/check-in your card.  You can do so by calling or getting online.  It took me about 5 minutes (or less) to check in online.

I don't know about you, but I have absolutely no reason to use American Express card anymore.  I've alway thought American Express was hoity toity.  Costco was the only reason I opened the account.

Enjoy~!!

PS. Oh, Christmas is coming to costco in 7 weeks.  :)

salad for luncheon

Jun
07
Body: 

Hello! I’m hostessing a lunch for about 30 people for mother-in-law’s 90th birthday. After hors d’oeuvres we will have quiche (the standard size from costco), a fruit plate, and salad. I would like recommendations for a salad that would look nice on someone’s plate next to quiche. I’d like to get it by the pound in the deli section. Do they have a green bean or green pea salad that anyone would recommend? Or something else fairly colorful that you like? I don't have a costco membership but will have my sister-in-law with me, and she has one.

 

I know there have been good comments about their packaged caesar salad mix, and I might use that, but I would like to hear options from the deli.

 

Thanks for recommendations for things you have actually tried and liked!

Golden Island Jerky

May
31

Company website: www.GoldenIslandJerky.com

*Your jerky preference may be different than mine.

Have you tried jerkies by Golden Island? I see them occasionally at Costco.  I usually see one flavor at a time. They sell jerkies with exotic & unique flavors such as Kung Pao Beef & Korean Barbecue Pork.  They are tender and rich in flavor.

Their jerkies are handcrafted in small batches - according to their website. 

I wondered about how they tasted.  Then I received these samples.  I can't describe taste with words - but they are all good.  My favorite is Kung Pao beef.  If I see them at Costco I will buy some.  I thought may be close up pictures can show the textures.  They may give you some idea.

Most jerkies in the market have a similar taste.  They have a common theme going on.  But, Golden Island sells jerkies with unique taste that if I have a craving for Kung Pao beef,  there will be no substitute for it. Maybe this kind of jerky is common in China Town.... (?) I don't know.

If you are a jerky lover who likes Asian & ethnic taste, these may be a special treat for you.  You can see them occasionally at Costco.

Look below for pictures and my quick reviews on each product.

Grilled Barbecue - Although I enjoyed it, this tasted more "Common" to me.

Korean Barbeque (Pork) - Very nice and exotic (different)

Sriracha (pork) - Very nice and exotic (different)

Kung Pao (Beef) - Perhaps my favorite of them all.  It's exotic, spicy (not very spicy), and has rich ethnic taste.  Look at all that peppers.  It doesn't taste like anything I've tasted before. I liked it a lot.  I want some more.

noisy fan

May
29
Body: 

Just installed GE SOLANO LED CEILING FAN.  I like the looks and the light, but it is too loud.  The motor is noisy to the point that I will probably be returning this item. 

Anyone else have this issue?  Maybe I got a bad one?
