The Kirkland Signature car battery was Consumer Report's "best Buy" rating in its recent Nov, 2012 issue.
As a result, I made a long trip to Costco, in Naples FL, to purchase this battery only to be told that it is discontinued. This is one of the many reasons I do 95% of my business with Sam's and only 5% if I'm forced to go to Costco.
The other problem with Costco is its 10AM opening VS 7AM for their business owners at Sam's.
Finally, Sam's membership is cheaper with better selection. I do not particularly care for Wal Mart but Sam's is superior to Costco.
Monetary Loss: $60.
