    The front of the flyer. Show it out the entry and they'll give you a printed copy to fill out and use at the registers.

      do you need original copy of this flyer?
      or phone or paper b&w is ok?
      And do you need to signup after exit?

        Just show it on your phone and they'll give you a paper copy with a barcode you use instead of a membership card (for checkout). They don't try sign you up or anything. Just pay and go.

      Thanks, do we need to print this out?

      Or do we just show it on the phone?

    Thanks, but members should avoid going those days? unless looking for an experience to walk around a packed store?

      Auburn store is always manic. They had this same offer about 4-5 weeks ago, I went and while very busy, I probably only waited about 3-4 minutes at the registers. As long as you know what to expect, it isn't all that bad. The worst of it is probably Parramatta Road and the carpark.

        And having to fetch a coin to use their trolleys 'cause people keep stealing them … (Casula and Marsden Park don't require a coin to use their trolleys)

        The register people are amazing. I wish they would teach other Supermarkets how to do this properly.

    Try the Kirkland Sangria with frozen berries. We then have the macerated berries with Greek Yogurt for a dessert.

    Any good deals on now?

      The current offers are here. Personally I find the best deal are unadvertised and you need to "treasure hunt" and know your prices to find them.

        Really? Where's that at

        •  

          Ah. Different at each store but, usually, near the checkout areas. In Docklands it is near the checkout closest to the entrance.

          I saw one of the theatre seat recliners for $500, down from $800. You do have to know your normal prices because, sometimes, it is just end of lines so they don’t drop the price. If they just have the “demo” piece of furniture left you might find it discounted, in the store, as well.

        They did have a sign for an event for people in the military at Docklands.

    Went a few weeks ago before Ramadan with my husband and 6 kids, never again, was packed out the elevators weren’t working, couldn’t even walk.
    I have never ever been there when it’s not packed.

  •  

    Shirt and shoes required. Haha classic

    •  

      Prayer mat optional. Mecca in the direction behind the pallet of washing powder.

      There's no petrol station at Auburn

    I was planning to head to the store and called them to confirm if its a free entree. She said the VIP shopping was few weeks ago, now there i only promotion for AUS defence people for Saturday which is tommorow. Can any one confirm if they visited the store?

    Called Marsden Park as well, just in case they said the same thing
    Saturday- war veterans who are serving or retired, working for defence across all costco.

      I just came back from Costco Lidcombe you just fill out a form on a table and when you decide to checkout the form you filled out has a barcode that they scan and collect from you and pay and you're pretty much done.

      Show them the digital flyer or ask about the temp membership they will direct you to the table with the form to fill out.

      Worked fine for me went today.

    •  

      I had no problems when I went today. Whoever you spoke to on the phone gave you misinformation. Yes it is free entry, you just go in there and sign the form also the person there was asking for ID? I didn't see no person wearing war veterans outfit.
