We hit Sam's Club today and although it wasn't the first time we'd been there, it was the first time we really compared it to Costco. Everyone says, including myself, that Sam's Club is like Costco. Well my friends, I had the Sam's Club Hot Dog & Soda combo and Sam doesn't even come close to Costco's Hebrew Nationals. Not even close. Costco clearly wins in every category for warehouse stores (except maybe friendly service) and there is simply no comparison.
