Today, Costco finally talked me into upgrading to an Executive membership.
I checked to see how much I spent during the year when I renewed back in November. The total: $4,700. I didn't think it was possible until I did the math. $4,700 divided by 12 months is $391.66. I know that at least $100 of that is gas. So, it's entirely possible I'm spending $291 a month on food and a few other various things. What can I say? I'm easily seduced by bulk items.
I didn't rush right back to upgrade. I have a stick it to the man attitude and I don't know why, but I felt like I was sticking it to Costco by not doing it. I wasn't going to upgrade just because they said I should. I held out for a couple more months. Until today, because...oh, I don't know. I guess I finally got curious enough to see if I actually do spend enough to earn the refund. So, game on Costco. Game on.
