  • We have a membership to Sams and I've never been to a Costco so I wouldn't know.

  • We have a membership to BJ's. Sam's Club is a subsidiary of Walmart, which I hate!

  • I have a Sams card and I never go lol. I only opened one up for when I had my daughters party, I wanted to buy plates and utensils in bulk lol. I don't have a Costco near me.

  • Don't have a Costco near me just Sam's club. Yes I have a membership. We only buy dog food, cleaners, and toiletries there. The savings in those items are worth the membership.

  • Costco is the most wonderful place on earth. It's a hassle to get to the one nearest me, but when we have time we make the trip. I once bought Seven jeans at Costco!

  • I use Costco.

  • Sams. The nearest Costco is 5 hours away so I've never been to one. We just got our Sams membership last week (used to have one when we first got married but never used it). So far it's saved us about $400!

  • Sams Club i also had a Costco one but found that i could get to Sam's easier and it seems to be more costly at Costco for me anyway. I got two Sam's Clubs around the areas i go the most I love my Sam's Club

  • We have a Costco membership we don't have a Sam's anywhere near where we live so I can't compare.

  • I have a membership to Sam's. It has good deals on some things we use. There are no Costcos around us so I haven't been to one.
