Costco is the magical place where you can buy a swing set, a 72-pound wheel of Parmigiano-Reggiano, socks and enough toilet paper for the next century all in one shopping trip. People love it so much that one couple staged their engagement photos there and a little girl threw a Costco-themed birthday party!

By paying someone $5.99 a delivery to go to costco and get it for you? And paying a $150 yearly free?

That's sorta an Oxymoron, pay more so you don't have to have a Costco Membership?

The $150 fee works out to $3 a week to have someone else deliver your groceries and your Costco stuff, you don't have to stand in line, Don't pay for a Costco membership, look for a parking spot, or get run over walking in. The $150 removes the $5.99 a trip delivery.

For many people this would help their busy schedule. A side benefit would be for those who load up their Costco cart with impulse items in the store, a little control of your list.

No Cotsco here, but Sams has click-n-pull and it's free with membership. Granted, you have to go pick it up, but cheaper...

  Not the point LorenNW.  OP said you don't need a membership to shop there.  This is wrong as you are getting another 'membership' to shop there. (And a more expensive one at that).

He should've posted, Company offers service to get costco delivered to your home for almost the same price as a Costco membership. That would make more sense.

  Yes the headline said you could shop there without a membership, that is mostly incorrect, unless you buy rx drugs or have a gift card
The real story of this subject should be that for $150, you can skip the lines and expense of getting Costco membership, to have Costco stuff, and select grocery stores delivered to your door
If you do the math, and subtract the Costco membership from the fee, it is more like $2 a week for deliveries, $150-60= $90
I don't live where it is covered, but I can see it being a nice service for that price
