Costco versus Sam's Club: Which is Better?

Posted: 06 Oct 2016 02:05 AM PDT

Wisebread recently did a comparison post on Costco versus Sam's Club.

They compared the two on six attributes. Costco won three, two were tied, and Sam's won one. Overall it was a much better summary than one I posted from Consumer Reports several years ago.

Fortunately (or unfortunately, however you look at it) I've had some recent experience to be able to compare the two and thought I'd share my take with you.

When we lived in Michigan we belonged to Costco for seven years or so. We LOVED it! During this time I wrote several posts about my love affair with Costco including:

Then we moved to Oklahoma City. There was no Costco, only Sam's. We had heard that they were "very similar" so we joined Sam's.

Let me say it was the biggest retail letdown I've had in a long time. I don't know if the Sam's stores in Oklahoma are just nasty or if they are all like this, but ours was like a big, junkier version of Walmart (which is saying a lot). I went a handful of times and that's all I could take (and I can take a lot). It was dirty, disorganized, and didn't have any "special" products thrown in here and there.

Fortunately we moved to Colorado and back into Costco land. All was right in the universe. I was back to inexpensive gas, a clean store, and great products at stellar prices. :)

I'm sure FMF readers have many different opinions about these two (and which is better). Anyone willing to shares their thoughts?
