Costco Coronavirus Covid-19 Updates

Costco Temporary Hours

We have compiled a list of all the policy changes Costco has made recently in an effort to keep its employees and members safe from Covid-19. As usual we were the first to bring you many of these stories via our Instagram page. If you’re not following us on there you’re missing a ton of good insider information. The summary of all the Costco Coronavirus changes are below:

Costco limit on number of members allowed in per card

4/1/2020: Normally with a Costco membership you’re allowed to bring in two guests and any children. Now you’ll be limited to two people total allowed in with a Costco membership card. This is a temporary policy with no set end date. No longer can a family of 6 go into the store. This policy begins April 3rd.

Costco coronavirus scam circulates

3/29/2020: There are text messages going around saying that Costco is giving $130 in freebies to loyal Costco members due to the coronavirus. It asks you to fill out a customer survey. This is definitely a scam.

Costco changes operating hours temporarily

3/26/2020: Starting March 30th Costco changed their operating hours. The Costco coronavirus hours are changed so that Monday to Friday they now close at 6:30pm and on the weekends it’s 6pm. These reduced hours are partly due to the stores not being as busy during the coronavirus outbreak. This will help Costco save some labor costs. Considering Costco is usually really busy in the morning, with long lines before they open, it makes sense that it is quiet in the evening as they run out of toilet paper, water, and more.

Costco installs checkout shields

3/24/2020: The 6 foot tall plastic shields protect cashiers from potentially being sneezed or coughed on. If all of Costco’s cashiers were to get sick then they could not run a business, so it’s definitely in their best interest to keep them as safe as possible. This provides little to no interruption to the members shopping experience.

Costco implements special operating hours for Seniors

3/21/2020: Some locations started this earlier but it became an official Costco policy on 3/21/2020. It started out as Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8am to 9am is when those over the age of 60 or those with physical disabilities will be allowed to exclusively shop. It has since been expanded to include Wednesdays as well. Some warehouses also allow those that are pregnant or those that are immunocompromised to shop as well, but that’s a case by case basis and it would be wise to call your local store ahead of time to ask. No guests will be admitted if they do not meet the criteria to enter.

Premier Protein with Oats Review

Premier Protein with Oats

There’s a new product in Costco stores and we were able to secure an early taste test for you. Premier Protein Shake with Oats is now out at Costco stores nationwide. If you’re wondering whether you should try it our review goes in depth on flavor, use cases, nutrition and more. You probably recognize the brand name and box, and it’s because Premier Protein has been in Costcos for a long time. The main differences are that this one comes with oats, is designed to be consumed both hot and cold, and is a new flavor — Apple Cinnamon. You can also read our review of the caramel flavored protein shake we did recently. In addition, it’s also now on sale with a $5 off Instant Rebate Coupon from 3/2/2020 through 3/29/2020!

Almost all protein shakes are designed to be consumed cold and Premier Protein conducted market research to come up with this ground breaking concept of heating it up. Having it hot really makes it a great breakfast go-to. In less than a minute you can have a breakfast addition that’s hot and gets you the protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals needed to help take on the day. The best part is that the flavor of Apple Cinnamon really pairs well with breakfast too.

When we began our review we were actually expecting oats to be floating in the shake. To our surprise it’s extremely smooth and creamy. There are no noticeable particles at all. It’s nice and light, making it easy to consume. The apple cinnamon flavor is a great combination of the two with neither being too overpowering.

On Costco.com there are already 40 reviews and it has a 4.6 star rating. Check out some of the comments:

“These can be either hot or cold and taste amazing either way. It’s my favorite flavor of the protein shakes and the oats doesn’t make it too thick either!”

“These taste absolutely amazing. I will reorder.”

“I drink Premier Protein shakes regularly, but this has got to be the best new product I’ve ever tried!”

Premier Protein Shake

Premier Protein Shake

The reason the oats were added was to increase the amount of fiber in the shake. Both fiber and protein take longer to digest. So we can now have this shake as part of breakfast at 150 calories and stay fuller longer. The 7g of fiber is 25% of the recommended daily value. Also great after a workout to get that full feeling and still get 20g of protein.

While prices vary slightly, the shakes come out to roughly $1.50 each for the 18 pack at Costco. We highly recommend picking up a box and giving it a try. Those that want a healthy lifestyle and to reach those health goals but find themselves struggling to find the time have an easy solution here with Premier Protein Shake with Oats. You can also learn more about it on the Costco.com page as well as read reviews, or purchase it now if you can’t get to a Costco store soon. Overall, we were impressed and we have no doubt you will be too!

Also keep in mind the January 2020 Costco Coupon Book is running during this same time, so there are even more deals to be had. The actual name of this coupon book is “Big Game Savings” due to copyright of the name Super Bowl but the idea behind it is that it’s the last seasonal sale on TVs before the most watched television broadcast of the year.

The Costco Super Bowl handout is packed with deals. There are three different LG OLED TV deals in it. There are 4 different Samsung QLED TVs on sale as well. In total we’re looking at 16 different Super Bowl TV Deals at Costco in this flyer alone. Having just picked up an LG OLED TV we can say we love it and highly recommend it despite the higher price compared to QLED. We also highly recommend pairing a SquareTrade warranty with your TV purchase as you will get 7 years total of warranty coverage. You get 2 years from Costco, 2 additional with your Costco Visa card and then 3 more from the SquareTrade warranty.

Tell us in the comments below which deal stands out to you as being the best value. Also, have you upgraded to a 4K TV yet or are you waiting for something better?

Premier Protein Review

Premier Protein Caramel

Costco members favorite protein shake, Premier Protein®, is bringing a new flavor to all Costco stores. Caramel has been a very popular flavor of theirs for years and it’s coming to Costco warehouses. Premier Protein has been in Costco for over 10 years now and for good reason. Their product is loved by Costco members, as is evidenced by the almost 10,000 5-star reviews on Costco.com. Thankfully they were nice enough to ship us a box of the new Caramel flavor in advance for us to try. We’ll review the product in detail but the quick answer is that it’s great. The caramel has a perfect creaminess to it that is very satisfying.

Our Premier Protein Caramel review began in the most basic way. We threw some in the refrigerator and waited for them to get cold. You don’t need to refrigerate them, but we figured we’d like them better that way. When ready, we cracked open the 11oz shake and began drinking. They go down very easily as they are sweet and delicious, and by the end of the ready-to-drink shake we were feeling quite full. Premier Protein says they can be used to help keep you going when you can’t sit down to a meal, and we can see why. Since you don’t need to refrigerate them and they’re ready to drink it’s easy to bring them along to have following a workout, when you need a quick something at the office, or you’re rushing off to work/school in the morning. They’re also good for balancing out your protein intake throughout the day. Most Americans eat their protein during dinner, but often have significantly less during breakfast and lunch. Now, you can easily balance that out so your body can absorb it throughout the day.

We like using Premier Protein as a coffee creamer, getting that protein, sweetness and creaminess into our coffee without using sugary sweeteners. If you read all of the online reviews there are lots of people that do this and once we got the idea we were hooked. We left some in our desk at work, popped the pod in the Keurig®, brewed our coffee, poured in the Premier Protein and shortly after enjoyed a delicious cup of caramel macchiato coffee.

Type S 360 Dash Cam Review

Type S 360 Dash Cam

We were excited to get a chance to review the Type S DRIVE 360 Dash Cam recently. We’ve always wondered what the advantages of having a dash cam in the car were and now we get to share our findings with you. Also a big shoutout to Type S for sending us a unit to review! The great thing is that it’s very affordable at only $129.99. You can find it in all Costco warehouses and usually Costco.com however due to it’s popularity it’s currently sold out online.

When dash cams first came out they pointed forward and gave a similar view to that of the driver. Now, with the advancements in camera lenses such as the Type S DRIVE 360 Dash Cam lens you can see both forward and in the cabin. There are many reasons you might want this. If you’re an Uber or Lyft driver it’s nice to have a recording of what happened in your car so you can settle disputes. Also, when you’re parked it’s very helpful to not only have recording of in front of you, but also where most damage occurs in a parking lot (to the sides of the car via shopping carts, car doors, and more). TYPE S even includes an optional 12V hardwire fuse box cable for the camera to receive constant power when the vehicle is parked and turned off for Park and Record mode. Dash cams are also great for when you’re in an accident and you’re both claiming innocence. When it’s your word against theirs it’s always nice to have a video to resolve the dispute quickly.

As we unboxed the Type S DRIVE 360 Dash Cam for review we quickly noticed how easy it was to follow the instructions provided. We could tell the manufacturers attention to detail was going to provide a great experience. If you read other online reviews on this dash cam you’ll see another common theme is how easy it is to use the product, and we couldn’t agree more. We then had to decide which of the 7 viewing modes to go with and after testing them all we decided on the 360 view. We also love that you can do a timelapse video on a long road trip. We tried to do that once with a cell phone on a long drive and it was both tiring to the passenger that had to hold the phone and the video ended up quite bouncy. Instead, the DRIVE 360 Dash Cam is mounted to the window so you don’t have to hold it and it’s a lot more stable than an arm.

Type S 360 Dash Cam Display

Type S DRIVE 360 Dash Cam Display at Costco

There’s also a phone app that pairs with the Type S DRIVE 360 Dash Cam. It was easy to connect via Wifi to the Dash Cam and download the video I wanted to look at. Older dash cams would require you to take out the memory card, find a computer that you could plug it in to, and then copy the files off the memory card to view them. The Type S camera makes this all a much easier and faster process. There are also many other cool features in the app that we won’t get into now. The only thing this dash cam is missing are some of the very advanced features you get with a much more expensive dash cam. That might include built-in Amazon Alexa or more cameras built into it. However, we don’t think those features are worth spending 3x as much money on to get yourself a reliable and easy to use dash cam.

Costco Real Christmas Tree 2019

Costco Christmas Tree Trailer

It’s that time of the year where the Costco real Christmas trees come around. Most stores will have them by Black Friday, and they won’t last all that long. What’s great about the live Christmas trees is they are a tremendous value, usually ranging from $32 to $60 for an 8ft tree. The price differences relate to the type of Christmas tree being offered in that location as well as how far the fresh cut Christmas trees had to be trucked in. Not all Costco locations offer Christmas trees, so we’ve attempted to compile a list of all the known Costco locations with real Christmas trees.

All Costco locations offer fake Christmas trees that are beautiful, but not all offer the real Christmas trees in 2019. Normally there will be a large trailer parked near the building that is full of trees. They’re fully wrapped up, which means you cannot see what they’re going to look like before you buy them. The good news is that they’re great trees and you can’t really go wrong. If for some reason you get a bad one you can always return it to Costco, but please don’t be one of those people who returns a dead tree after Christmas. Oftentimes you’ll pay for the tree inside and then bring your receipt out to the truck to pick it up.
