Question Dry Milk

The carnation dry milk has been a no show for so long that we asked about it, and we were told that both Costco and Sam's Club are no longer carrying it!! Help! This was our affordable source... everyone, where do you get your food storage milk now?

I know it doesn't sound like much but it really adds up, the rebate comes once a year in the form of a check (mine was over 450). But you all probably already knew this! I am new and just a little excited to be learning all of this!
I haven't had a Costco membership in years, as I haven't had children and didn't need to buy the quantities there. Now I have one boy, and another on the way and am thinking it might be worth the membership again. This is the first time I have heard about this yearly rebate. Does it only work with Costco gas? And can you dine out anywhere with it? Thanks for the help.

You get a rebate check from Costco at the end of your year. I use mine to pay for my membership, so I get to shop there free!

I frequently buy mine at Macey's. I buy the cans of milk and since it is a fine powder it actually takes much less and is comparable to the cost of the Carnation. Or it use to be, I haven't checked in a long time. I like the Country Cream (not sure if that is the right name, country something). It's instant so it mixes up quickly but is just milk, no other additives.

Default Costco Membership

Ok stick with my while I try to explain this. You can have a regular Costco Membership, an Executive, or a business membership of both types as well. Regular membership is $50 per year and Executive is $100. You can add the Amex true earnings for no additional yearly fee to any of these types of memberships. It is with the true earnings that the rebate comes in to play. The benefits you receive are better with the Executive type membership when combined with the "true earnings", but for it to be worth the upgrade you need to spend at least $2500 a year on your card. If at the end of the year you really haven't made enough in the form of a rebate to cover the cost of your membership you can return the small rebate amount you got and be reimbursed the cost of your membership. It is a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee. As far as the gas reward it is only on Costco gas, but when it is usually 10 cents cheaper that anywhere else and then on top of it you get 3% back in the form of a rebate, why would you buy it anywhere else! Just plan ahead to buy gas and groceries at the same time! I hope this makes sense. If not, anyone at costco will be so happy to explain it!

I read in a Reader's Digest article that if anything at Costco ends in .77 then it's a huge deal. Can anyone verify that? Anyone who works at Costco?

I'm doing the lemonade diet and was looking for lemons... the cheapest place was Walmart. I used to think everything was cheaper at Costco but I'm learning to not shop blindly anymore.
