The ad that makes me close the browser on my phone and reload ATS... I'm sick of it.

In fact, I'm so sick of it that in addition to never shopping at Costco again,

ATS can just wait until I get home at night to grace you with my presence.

Rant over.

It's a wholesale club like Sam's Club.

I click once if I get 'em...I did see that one recently....in the open tabs, I clicked the x and current ATS page still there underneath. One click -2 secs...it was gone and not returned since. Sorry

The one I'm talking about redirects your current tab to one of those 'Today's your lucky day Sucker!' pages, and of course the back button is disabled. So I have to close the tab, reopen ATS, and navigate back to where I was.

Unacceptable.

Costco is a huge store with bulk items you buy for a discount price. Like a massive Target or Walmart.

I've never even been to Costco and I only went to Sam's Club a few times with one of my girlfriends because I didn't have a choice back in the early 90s. I've never had the need to buy 100 rolls of toilet paper at once and never bought anything there.

I'm sorry... I was being sarcastic.

I left the real world to live in Montana to get away from all that.

The only thing I buy in bulk is toilet paper, which I buy on Amazon so it comes to my door. Once a year.

Bulk items for me is what I can and put in the root cellar in the fall.

If Costco and Sam's club is a big thing for people then they have lost their way.

I get that one on my phone. It drives me nuts. I can't figure out how to stop it from taking over the browser. I've cleared my cache, history, etc., but it still pops up and redirects me to some bogus page. I don't have the same problem on my desktop, though.

They don't even have shopping carts there. You have to load up on these.

Puts a whole new perspective on the word "consumer" in America.

Consuming isn't a contest that has a winner for the most consumed.

Sam's Club and Costco ...

You've heard of megachurches?

They're kind of like megachurches for the great American religion of Consumerism.

Its funny when the kids were at home, had 4 teenage girls in a blended family at one time, we went about once a month. LOL if not you would always be going to the grocery store or pharmacy for something. It certainly saved some money of some things. Now its just for our business and trade shows, but do like the discount gas too. Sometimes if we are having a family cookout etc.
