Price alert!!!! I am just back from a Costco run that ended up with me buying way too much (and I mean WAY too much wine). I just wanted to alert all Ann Arborites and possibly elsewhere to an amazing deal Costco is offering right now:
Costco is currently selling magnum bottles of the 2010 Melini Chianti Borghi d’Elsa, which I reviewed recently here, and thought it was a good value chianti. When I checked, the cheapest 750ml bottles for that wine online were about $5.50 (excluding shipping) and I found it for $7.99 at the local liquor store.
This magnum bottle is $10.99. You read that right. $10.99. I love magnums, because it is great to share them with couple of friends when you cook dinner, or at birthday parties. We definitely stocked up.
Ann Arborites: Go check it out while they last, and you don’t have to be a Costco member to buy wine (thank you, Michigan!). They might be elsewhere, too. It is definitely a steal!
Great find! Wish I could go and get a few….
Here in Illinois you have to be a Costco member to even get in the door. I have been a Costco member for years, since I understood their employee policies (especially as opposed to the way Sam’s Club, Costco’s Walmart-family competition, puts its shareholders above employees). My only objection to Costco (and to all warehouse-type stores) is that everything comes in large packages–better for a large household than for ours of two, especially since we moved from a large house to an apartment with limited storage.
But the wine bottles still come in normal size, right? :)
Saw that!! Got one
