Random Costco News: Golf Shirts, Laundry Pods, Ibotta Coupons

Kirkland Men's Golf Shirts

Costco is developing more Kirkland brand clothing, and one new item this summer was men's golf shirts. Here's great-grandpa in his new Kirkland golf shirt, on sale this week for $15. I'm really happy with this.

Kirkland Laundry Pods

There's been a lot on the Internet about the danger of liquid laundry pods, and some children, apparently thinking they looked like candy, have been sickened and even died by ingesting. At least one person questioned Costco's choice to put the laundry pods in a clear container.  Now, according to the Internet and the picture in the new coupon book, the liquid laundry pod container is no longer transparent.

Ibotta Coupon System

Ibotta is a complicated coupon system that works on a smart phone and claims to work with Costco purchases. I bought the product, photocopied my receipt (which took three separate photos), captured a copy of the price code, and was approved for $.25 cents back on my Costco purchase of eggs. But when I tried to find my $.25 cents, it was nowhere to be found.  The email supposedly containing my money never arrived.  I haven't totally given up on Ibotta, but I'm skeptical.
