Default Costco?

Alright, so I've decided on this monitor for my new PC:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824112005

It's $360 on Newegg, but it's $30 cheaper (60 with mail in rebate) on this Costco site:
http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product...1&Sp=C&topnav=

Anyone have any experience with this site? I guess there's a 5% charge for non members, but it still only comes out to $345.

its a bulk warehouse type store, like sams club, you pay for a membership there, and you can get bulk items that are cheaper than buying it at another store that doesn't buy in bulk

Yeah, but would I be better off buying from there or Newegg? I mean, anyone have any personal experience with the site? (in case I have to RMA or something)

I've never ordered off Costco.com, but I regularly go to their stores and it's awesome. It's literally the asian paradise. My mom usually returns things there and she hasn't had a problem yet. Check with the site...if you have a Costco near you, you MIGHT be able to return or exchange there instead of doing RMAs and all that. Not sure, but it's possible.

Yeah, the nearest one is in Canada, 30 miles away, which would be a pain to go to...

I lol'd at the "Asian paradise", I think of cyberjocks (like a big PC LAN place where all the nerds that get made fun of go) for that, haha.

OMG, Costco kind of owns. There's one right down the freeway from where I live!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mmmmm, pizza and soda for dirt cheap. Then there's the giant hot dogs, so good. Ok anyways, Costco have some pretty good deals sometimes on computer stuff and if I do find a good deal, I would buy it there.
