Is a membership worth it for dog/pet supplies? I can get a membership through my DH's work for $20. Last time I did this, I barely used it so hadn't thought to renew, but now, with a new puppy joining our family, wondering if it is worth it for things we will need. I am planning on feeding Orijen which our local pet store carries, so more interested in "stuff" for the dog like beds, toys, etc. Opinions?

I don't have a Costco near me so I can't answer your question BUT I will say that I have really good luck with Amazon for my dog stuff :)

I use my Sam's Club membership to get Grain-Free Food and Treats for Trucker. I have found it to be worth it but I only pay my grandmother $5 through her business

We have a Costco membership, but I don't know that we've ever bought stuff for the dogs there. We buy most of our dog stuff either online (Amazon, Clean Run, etc) or from local pet stores.

We have found it beneficial for other things link pantry items, some paper products, misc household supplies, and car tires.

I use Costco for only one pet supply - paper towels! They also sometimes have cheap beds. Other than that, I use local pet stores or Clean Run/Amazon

Eh, I don't think it's worth keeping if you just want it for dog supplies. I think the only things we've ever bought for the dogs at Costco are wee wee pads and Milkbones.

My mom works doing the demos at our local costco so I just use her membership (i.e.: I go with her and pay her in cash before we check out). Personally, I don't think it's worth it if you're not regularly going in. Tessa does have one of their beds, but the quality is the same at any pet store - paid $30 though.

OK, thanks for the feedback- doesn't really seem worth it. Plus, I can totally see myself buying stuff I would never normally buy on impulse just because I am there ;)

i have a Bj's membership but i buy in bulk for my family so for me its worth it if i need to use it for pet supplies since i shop there every 6 weeks, but otherwise just for pet supplies i wouldn't sign up.

If you get out of Costco spending less than 150, you're a champion. :p

Costco pharmacy does pet meds cheaper than other places, not sure if you need a membership to use it though.

I have a membership and have never bought dog stuff apart from medicine. I almost bought a 3 pack of nylabones though.... Then changed my mind :D
