Illinois Man Became First Costco Shopper in History to Leave One of Its Stores Without Spending Over $100.00:
On April 24th, 2009, Peter J. Franklin exited a Costco store, spending only $98.43, the first customer in the store’s history to break the $100.00 barrier.
Asked how he did it, Franklin said, “I was just driving by, and remembered I needed ketchup, so I stopped in. I bought a twelve-gallon two-pack, but couldn’t resist buying seventy-five dollars worth of toothbrushes because there was an instant two-dollar rebate. Funny how a little thing like a rebate can allow you to make history. Most of the toothbrushes are still in my car, because I can’t find a place in my apartment for them. All my cabinet space is taken up by the ketchup.”
