Not just the kits, even AAA.

I remember someone was complaining they could never find the AAA's on their own. I happened to see it. I have some eneloops but I have have similar Powerex batteries I got from Canada Computers that work as well in my use.

Also, how do you browse Costco for deals? I don't see a 'find deals' button on their site and I'm also curious how you find out what in-store deals they have as well.

are the AA any good for digital cameras etc, had some rechargeable AAs, different make, and didn't last very long, not many shots per even after fully charged and no flash.
Thanks

I use these Sanyo Enerloop for years now, maybe 4 or maybe even more now? And recently Duracell rechargeables within the past year and they work as long as or possibly more than non-rechargeable batteries. I can't recall as I very rarely have to recharge them and the recharge time is so short I don't really think about it.

I've basically banned non-rechargeable batteries in my home for ages...

Eneloops are pretty good for digital cameras, except there aren't any good digital cameras that use AAs. Most that do are superzooms, because the quality of AA cameras competes poorly with smartphones, so the superzoom at least lets them do something a smartphone can't.

I use them in my flashes and wireless triggers for my flashes. As well as some of the girls toys. Key thing for me is they stay charged until used.

I ordered one of the AA and AAA sets. They are cheaper than the Powerex ones even on sale. I can get rid of all the regular rechargeable batteries for the girls toys, etc.

Our membership is in my wife's name which is a corporate membership under her mom's account so I do not have a card. It is free shipping.

Shipping isn't really free in the sense of the word, they build it into the price of the product.

The same product is cheaper if you get it yourself at the warehouse.

By free I mean not an added cost on the order. Of course you knew that the same as everyone (ok, maybe not everyone) knew that it was built into the price already.

I did not know Costco shipped from NS. I got my shipping notice and it came from Dartmouth, NS (HRM to keep Vue happy ) and went to Dieppe NB overnight.

I figured that... but I actually need some so I went to the store in person to get them sooner rather than delivery.

I chose standard and they are due for Monday. I think they have a faster option.

we got two factory sized stores here(and a much lower consumer market). makes sense to ship stock from here to wherever.

As a followup, my batteries arrived yesterday. They were in a too large box but the batteries were then in Sanyo branded bubble envelopes. Inside those were the regular retail packs of batteries.

On the right side, at the bottom of the page there's a "savings, promotions and more" button.

Most products are shipped directly from their supplier, wherever it is. Depending on what you buy a multi-item order will often come in as multiple shipments.
