Costco


Stupid question #324: Will my USA Costco membership work in Ensenada? Or do I need a Mexican membership?

Works fine. No problem (except Costco's in Baja do not sell gasoline.



Just do it!

When I checked a year ago, Costco-U.S. told me you don't get a rebate on purchases at Costco in Mexico if you use your U.S. membership.

Depending on how much you use it, might make sense to have both memberships. The Mexican membership is inexpensive.

When I was in Cabo three years ago, I decided to compare my favorite Costco item with the northern version.

The roast chicken in Cabo was smaller, under seasoned, over cooked, and more expensive than their NOB cousins! The ones found in the local economy were a better deal.

Correct on the membership card, however if you have the COSTCO/Citi Bank VISA, all purchases apply to your rewards balance

Last trip down I bought a chicken at the Mexicalli Costco and it was as good as here in the states.

By the way I have a Mexico Costco membership for the past couple of years ( half price ) compared to the states. Although NO rebate .

It is good at ANY Costco worldwide....

Went to Costco CSL a couple weeks ago for first time. It was great, all US quality food products. The bagels were just like US and they even had USDA Prime graded beef which we bought a few pounds of (New York and Tri tips) and they were great. No more smuggling Prime meat from the US for me.



Living Large in Loreto. Off-grid and happy.

Costco chicken tastes good because it’s injected full of chemicals that taste yummy. Costco chicken is probably over 15% injected salt water.
Ingredients:
Chicken
Water
Salt
Rice starch
Sodium tripolyphosphate (anticoagulant)
Starch(for thickening or flavor?)
Dextrin (for thickening or flavor?)
Sugar
Dextrose (a sugar)
Natural flavor additives (could be many things,... this usually means chemicals extracted from something found in nature)
Maltodextrin (a thickener, but with high glycemic index)
Carrageenan (a thickener, linear sulfated polysaccharides)
Silicon dioxide (quartz)
Polysorbate 80 (an emulsifier [surfactant])

I am a little disappointed that there are no preservatives included! I credit them for the fact that some parts of my body are still intact. I suppose I will get enough of them somewhere else.

Good to hear that the chickens in the northern Costco's are up to par, and how about the price? The one I got in Cabo I believe was close to seven dollars US, with whatever the exchange rate was.

BajaMama, I hope you don't mind the hijack since you got your answer already!

Regular chicken is what I’m am accustomed to. I have never really thought much of the injected chickens, the taste just comes off a bit weird for me, the texture and taste just aren’t chicken.
