Day 313. I spent the day running errands. I had to return the bathing suit I bought about a month ago. It was not made well and I needed to return it to Target. But first I wanted to go to Costco.
This was my first trip to Costco since I renewed my membership and since Costco made their change from Costco American Express to Costco Visa. Since I didn't have a Costco credit card, I didn't pay much attention to the whole thing. I just knew people could not use a Costco American Express and I may not be able to use my regular American Express. I go shopping and put all my stuff on the belt. I hand my card and the girl is ringing up my stuff and I look at the list of ways I can pay. I have none of the things. I have no cash, no check, no Costco card, and no Visa. I tell the girl I have no way to pay. I have to leave all my stuff on the belt and leave the store.
I am actually already annoyed because Costco used to have a big vegan/vegetarian section and it is gone. All the products are also gone. I went all over the store and the items were not mixed in with the regular items. The main reason I am a member is because the big section the store has. Now it is gone. If I had known this I may not have renewed this membership. I can get toilet paper and paper towels at Target.
Which is where I went next. I went to Target and guess what? They will take all forms of payment: all credit cards, cash, check, debit cards. They were happy to take my money! With a smile!
No they didn't have vegan/vegetarian stuff either but they did have a bubble machine!
