Costco is our go to place to score a killer deal on snacks, shoes, and Rotisserie Chicken, but the real jackpot of having a Costco membership are the free unlimited samples!

??Just got word, one of our followers is a sample person for CDS which is Costco’s vendor who does all the food samples and looks like they will not be serving samples for the foreseeable future. Not sure if this is immediate and will effect all stores or will be a store by store basis. . ?The good side is that Costco is allowing CDS workers to work at the warehouses in various other capacities until samples start up again!! This was inevitable with the #coronavirus picking up steam in the US + the recent crazy crowds at Costco stores! #washyourhands #costcodeals #costcosamples #costco . ?If anyone can confirm that it’s a nationwide or worldwide sample suspension, DM or let us know in the comments below!
No we’re all asking the same question… How can Costco do this to us!?
The answer according to Costco’s CDS Samplers is: with the Coronavirus spreading Costco just can’t risk anything. While it’s disappointing to think about heading to Costco without any delicious samples, we appreciate all their efforts to prevent the spreading of the virus to keep us safe.
