The East Plano Costco has proven itself worth the cost of my membership. I like to go there every couple of months and stock up on canned and dry goods and frozen foods where you can get name brands for about the same price as store brands elsewhere. I also enjoy browsing their selection of books and have purchased several books as gifts there. The women's clothing sometimes has some great bargains as well. My only complaint about Costco is the fact that the only credit card they accept is American Express which is why I don't go there more often.
