I purchased 2 packs of the Top Flight Wired 3 Subject 3 Pack of notebooks for my daughters from Costco (Cincinnati location - July 2011). When I opened up the packs and the notebooks, there was DIRT all over the books.
Literally, the paper inside was dirty. I've taken pictures and will file a complaint at the local Costco location as well. Last year I purchased the Five Star pack and it was great.
This year, they went with a lower quality brand and now I know why it is so cheap. I do not recommend this product and this is not the quality I expect from Costco.
Monetary Loss: $8.
