Seen at Woodinville/Grace Costco Oct 10 +/-: Ladies thick down jackets with hoods, I think made by Eddie Bauer. Only $50! Usually the down jackets at Costco are not very thick, but this one is quite thick.

They are also selling thinner Men's Eddie Bauer down jackets (different model from above). Quality seemed about the same as the Kirkland Costco brand or perhaps not quite as much down as the Kirkland ones -- close though.

My wife and I both use Eddie Bauer first ascent down coats and we have both replaced them no questions asked using their lifetime warranty. I wonder if this would be the same for the jackets from Costco. I am very happy with the jackets too fyi.

Well, Costco has a great return policy. Whether you could return one purchased from Costco to Eddie Bauer or not, I'm not sure.

I used to have an Eddie Bauer down vest I got for a song at Costco.  Lasted years, was warm, packed down small, I'm not sure how much more you can ask.  But a kitten peed on it and that's not exactly a warranty issue.

When I return stuff to CostCo,  I open with "I'm returning this" and then shut up.   If they ask me questions I will answer truthfully.   So far the only follow up question I've been asked was "do you want the refund on your credit card or as a CostCo cash card?"

Best return was a 4+ year old Dyson vacuum cleaner that had stopped working due to burned belts.    The CostCo person noted -- you had two weeks left on the manufacturers warranty.    I took a cash card.   Went back in and bought the current equivalent Dyson model, $100 worth of food and walked out with $100 still on the cash card.

I have also found when returning stuff they don't want the long story. They just want to move you along so they can help the next person.

I tried the Costco dried eggs. Ugh, didn't like. Maybe I didn't use them properly.

Costco still makes their profit on anything you return.

The item manufacturer has to eat the full return cost.

If you want to give them one more try, I suggest perhaps a half recipe for the "Pesto Egg bites" recipe on the box. I served these to two different people and they could not tell they were not made with fresh eggs. But be sure to get the ratio of water to powder correct!

I noticed today that Costco has some new snowshoes now different from the Yukon Charlie ones they had before. They were $69 a pair with poles and sold under the Cascade Designs mark used for their trekking poles. There are three sizes. Probably a good entry snowshoe looking  similar to Atlas shoes. Other than that I know not.
