Huge Costco Savings and a Naked Man!!

Okay, I'm going to keeep this short.

Randy and I went to costco yesterday. We bought paper towels, toilet paper, brown gravy mix, dog food, hash browns, pancake mix, plates, bacon, and oatmeal.

We have a American Express Costco Card so we get a yearly rebate on purchases we have made. Okay?!

So we also had a huge 45lb bucket of wheat and a big thing of Otter Pops. We were trying to decide if we wanted to spend the money for them. We didn't want to spend more than $60 dollars after our rebate was used which was for $64.05. So we said if our total goes above $120 w/o the wheat and otter pops then we wont get them. So we get up to the register and the cashier rings up $111.43 and deducts the $64.05. So the total was $47.38. But then Good Ol' Randy Boy pulled out a Rebate that expired in 2007 which means it was from purchases made from Feb. 2006 to Feb. 2007. A long time ago. He asked the Cashier, "Do you think you guys would take this?" She said," Umm..." and she calls over a Manager, the manager says, "Wow, that is a long time ago. But SURE we'll take it." (We later found out that she was a real good friend's mother. I love connections.:) The expired rebate was for $44.06. So it dropped our out of pocket price to $3.32. Wow right? I know.... Tell me we're amazing!

We decided since we were only gonna pay three bucks to definately add on the wheat and otter pops. So we did and ended up paying only $31.11 for all of that stuff. Also included in the prices are also Manufactured coupons which made us have even more savings.

We were so shocked and super excited. We thought well while we are here let's get gas. We pulled up behind an SUV to use the behind pump. (Making sense?) All of a sudden, Randy says, " Oh wow, Baby, don't look.!" Of course, I said, "What?" and looked. Some Foreign man DROPPPED HIS DRAWERS right in front of my car. I saw his man package and all. It was so gross!!! I couldn't believe people do that stuff outside of the their car. HAHAHA! Couldn't he have gotten a Indescent Exposure Violation?!?!


  1. I know this was forever ago, but way to go on all the savings! That is so cool! And I'm so sorry about the foreign man. Yuck!

  2. Totally Rad with the savings and them accepting the rebate. That happened to me too, but the rebate was dated 2006. There wasn't an expiration date then, and they accepted it. Yippy for rebates!
