Latest Costco catalogue uploaded.

Some notes:

Meguiar's Carnauba Wash & Wax is a unique formulation by Meguiars for Costco. It's closest relative is the OzB favourite Ultimate Wash and Wax, with the key difference being the Ultimate Wax uses a synthetic wax instead of natural Carnauba. At it's best, Ultimate wax retails for $10.56/L, while the Carnauba Wash & Wax $8.65/L.

Bosisto's Euralyptus Oil's historical best price has been at Big W for $12.60/175mL or $7.2/100mL. This works out to $5.2/100mL.

    How can you not love Costco :)

      Member for five years and while the electronics return policy is good, a lot of the deals aren't that great IMO.

        Agree. Barely buy anything there (I find Aldi to be cheaper for most things) but I'm only 2km from the Ringwood one and I maybe just make back my $60…
        Don't understand why some people buy some items in such large quantities when in many circumstances the same products come on sale everything month or two at ww or Coles for basically the same price…

        If you know your prices it's not too bad coupled with fuel savings. I wouldn't be able to do a full weekly shop at Costco but it's been great for one off items and plenty of staples like dog food.

          Yep, the prices at Costco are typically lower than Coles and Woolies's normal prices. But when Coles and Woolies are on special? They frequently beat or at least match Costco. Aldi's prices are not to far off from Costcos and you don't have to buy in bulk.

            @annarchon: Some of the reasons I feel I'm getting value out of my Costco membership:
            1) Fuel - Costco's fuel price doesn't follow "spike" cycles like the other retailers, and tends to stay a few cents below the bottom of the range. I'll fill up to full at Costco around 6 times a year and this alone will pay back the vast majority (at least $45-50) of the membership fee.
            2) Value - I don't see Costco as a "lowest cost" provider in the same way that Aldi is, but moreso a "value" provider. As an example - if you wanted the cheapest beef you could find, Costco isn't for you. But if you wanted to pay $26/kg for Graded Angus Porterhouse that they will slice for you and you can then vacuum seal at home, Costco is a great option. They strike a really nice balance between quality and price on most items.
            3) Convenience - For the most part, when Coles and WW go 1/2 price, Costco can't touch them. BUT Costco gets very close to this price - arguably close enough to justify the higher unit cost when considering you don't need to think about price hunting that item for a while. On the flipside, Costco have quite a few non-perishables that if you use frequently enough, the value is untouched by the majors.

            What I've learned after a year shopping at Costco is that if you have a good idea of what you churn through in your household, and also have a good idea of promo prices on items, it's pretty easy to figure out what to avoid to get the value out of the membership. Definitely made a few mistakes and bought stuff I didn't really need along the way though!

              @XabiFernando: So much this. Some further thoughts:

              1) fuel savings are ridiculous. We shop once a month, but take 2-3 Jerry cans with us. The savings pay for our membership many times over

              2) Costco is great for stuff you can't find anywhere else (or not cheaply). Peanut butter stuffed pretzels anyone?

              3) general groceries can be hit and miss - there is no general rule, just need to be aware of the normal pricing of what you want to purchase. Some is not worth considering even at normal ColesWorth prices. Many things are about equivalent to ColesWorth on sale, and so the convenience plays a part. Some things are cheaper even compared to ColesWorth on sale.

              4) Then need to consider pricing of when Costco has a sale - it generally blows anything else away in terms of price

              5) maybe its just me, but I find Aldi is terrible quality. Costco is above average to premium quality

              6) warranty is unbelievably good, whether something has been used or not, broken or otherwise.

              7) Their Pizza's rock

            @annarchon: Costco is typically HIGHER in my experience, with a few exceptions. Costco isn't even in the ballpark where most Colesworth specials are concerned and ALDI is consistently the best of them all. I shop at Costco for petrol (primarily to avoid the fuel price ripoffs largely underpinned by Colesworth in Canberra), (some) meat, roast chickens and a few other sundry items. Costco deserves my subscription for no other reason than the fact that they bought some competition to the Canberra fuel market. Has made sfa difference in the suburbs but when I need petrol I drive out to the airport precinct and shop at the same time.

    R there any air purifier offers at Costco? Feel dying in Canberra :(

  •  

    Is there any website (apart from OzBargain) to track/lookup pricing at Costco AU?

    •  

      not yet, though they are supposed to be launching online shopping in February so can probably do some tracking then.

    25c per egg is cheep cheep!

  • +9 votes

    One issue is that I can only buy the limit of 24 of these 30 pack eggs.

    720 eggs is a relatively small amount of eggs for my family.

    I really need to buy eggs in quantities of 1000 or greater, so this deal will not work for me.

    Great price on the eucalytus oil.

    •  

      How/what do you use eucalytus oil for ?

      •  

        I mainly use it for cleaning, but it's also useful for reviving the scent of your neighbourhood gum trees if it starts to fade

    For what it is worth the carnauba version will have less durability than the synthetic one. This should be an non-issue as neither are intented to use as a last step protectant. More a topper to dying wax or targeted to those that never protect but do wash regularly.

    Meguiar's struggle with writing their dilution on their bottle. 256:1 is a good starting point. That is, 39mls of soap in every 10L of water

    Thanks for uploading the catalogue OP :)

    Anyone knows that what is the exact price of the TV listed on the catalogue?

  •  

    $31.99 for the Meguiar's Carnuba Wash & Wax is very expensive!

    EDIT: Just saw that it was 1 gallon, not 1L, that's cheap!
