Why I'm holding on to my CostCo card


My name's Jennie Phipps and I'm a shopper addicted to Costco.

Costco isn't much to look at -- just cement everywhere. But the quality of the merchandise vs. the prices please me and I'm apparently not the only one. Geezeo survey reported by MainStreet.com, found that Costco shoppers spend an average of $268 per month, compared with $75.98 spent by BJ's shoppers and $168.82 shelled out by Sam's Club shoppers.

None of this surprises me. Costco makes it sensible to spend money.
