    Default Which do you prefer - Costco or Sam's club

    I'm debating on switching membership when my current membership is expired. Here are some of my key interests about each store -

    1- crowdedness (does it take as long to check out as it does to fill my grocery cart),

    2- price and quality,

    3- locations,

    4- variety (do they offer several choices, or only a name and store brand choice?),

    5- do you feel the membership fee is worth what you pay for (do you feel the 2% back Costco membership gives you 2% of your yearly spending back, do you feel the $100 Sam's membership is worth the early shopping hours and extra coupons?)

    6- Staff (are their employees around to help if I need to find an item?)


    Thanks everyone!

    So I know my MIL prefers sams over costco--and even drives a bit farther out of her way to go there. We don't have a sams club anywhere nearby--closest one is like 30 minutes away, by freeway. And costco is 10 by just roads. So we do costco, but whenever I have gone to sams club with her in Utah, I think it is nicer--less crowded, comparable "stuff", and better prices. But I don't know about any of the other coupons and quality etc. I just know we prefer costco due to location.

    We have a Sam's membership and my mom has Costco - so we get the best of both worlds. The one thing I like about Costco is they send you coupons in the mail every month.

    We don't have a Costco membership, but I grew up with Costco and prefer it to Sam's. I think they have better quality stuff and more variety.
