If you are headed for a long road trip, why not plan to stop off at Costco along the way? Here are my Costco Highway Shopping Benefits list.
Costco Highway Shopping Benefits
Convenient Location – Most Costcos are located along major highway routes. Therefore, you don’t have to go out of your way to stop at one.
Gas – Costco usually has the best prices for gas. Not only that, but if you use Costco’s preferred credit(Costco Capital One MasterCard in Canada) card, you’ll receive 2% cash back. I also really like that the tap and pay feature, making the pump experience pretty seamless. Note: In early 2022, Costco will be phasing the Capital One card soon in favour of a different card… Additional details will soon be released… I think…
Bathroom Breaks – On long drives, nature will call – Thankfully, most Costco washroom/rest rooms are usually clean.
Quick meal – The menu is limited but is also quick, easy, and inexpensive. Where else can you feed a family of 4 for only $6.00?
Exercise – On long drives, you should always take a break to stretch your legs and get the blood going. A Costco warehouse is an ideal place for a stroll. The warehouse is large, climate-controlled, and you might even find a great deal on those sweat pants you’ve been dreaming about! Perhaps you will even pick up a few groceries if you happen to be returning home.
Overall Convenience and Efficiency – As I have outlined above, you can get a lot done during a simple highway stop. Go ahead, maximize your rest time!

Sure beats peeing in a bottle I guess. But with that said, I once had to do that whilst diving over a narrow hundred year old hemp rope bridge, on a motorcycle. I was traveling through South America and couldn’t afford to stop because I was competing in a secret trans continental race on the last leg. It was down to me and a competitor from France and I was sure as hell not gonna lose ground because I had to take a leak.
