Location: Burnaby (Willingdon), BC Costco Warehouse
There were lots of new books in the book section this week so I thought I would update the blog with the newest additions! Hopefully, we will all be out of this pandemic soon and we can put the books away and see people in person. Until then, read away!
BIG Server Upgrades !
Some people have noticed that the blog has been slow to load or inaccessible on Tuesday Mornings. As a result, on Friday, we added another server to make sure that everyone can access the blog, even during peak times! For those curious, that makes eight load balanced servers running to make sure everyone gets their deals on Tuesday morning.
Product Search Update!
So it has taken quite a bit of back-end work on the blog, but we finally have a working product search. We are still working on the layout and the data entry, but this tool will allow you to look a the price sale history of your favorite product.
To try out the search just click on the search icon at the blue bar at the top of the page or using the search field in the main menu! We are making great progress! So far, we have entered 19,000 photos and we have about 47,000 photos left. We now have a full year of products and prices in the database! In the end the database will go back to 2014. Hopefully, this tool will make finding and anticipating product sales easy for everyone.
1,000 Costco Fan Blog Posts!
I’ve been watching this number creep up for a while, but next Monday will make 1,000 Costco Fan Blog Posts. I never thought I would still be doing this when I started over 10 years ago, but here I am! I’ll be celebrating with a great contest next Monday so stay tuned and thank you for coming back every week to check out the deals.
Have a great week everyone!
