Costco Flyer & Costco Sale Items for Apr 29 – May 5, 2024 for BC, AB, SK, MB

Location: Burnaby (Willingdon), BC

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend!  We’ve had a couple weekends with no scheduled activities and it has been really nice having some unstructured time with the kids on the weekends.  We got to go for a couple rainy walks and took the whole family swimming.  Unfortunately the easy weekends means that most of our activities are jammed into Monday to Friday.

We’ve been working on ways to make the site load faster and one of the things we have done is that we have lowered the size of the photos.  Let me know in the comments if you can see a difference in the quality of the photos or the page loading time!

There were lots of sale items this week and my phone ran out of batteries taking photos!  I’ve got to pick up the kids from school so I’ll see you all later!


Happy Shopping!

What is on sale next week? Check out the sales from last year to see what might be on sale next week?

  1. I see the beef ribs are on 50 cents difference between the rack and pre cut. Good deal if you dont want to cut them yourself and you can see what meat you are buying better.

    • Individual warehouses have their own warehouse-specific sales beyond the regional specials. This is probably one of them!

  2. Downloading is much quicker while image quality remains very good.  Looks like each image has decreased from ~800Kb to  ~150Kb. If you calculate using 50 images downloaded (although I strongly suspect there is more than 50 images for each post) that’s ~40Gb vs ~7.5Gb of downloaded data.  That is a lot of data for the server to transfer for each person downloading (viewing)  ALL the images for each post. In this case, the server, when busy, maybe throttling this data. Users looking at the post will see delays as each image loads depending on their internet speed and the processing that has to occur for the device to display the image(s).

    I would suggest if there are few people complaining about image quality that you consider reducing the file size even further. Personally, I think the only time image resolution is a consideration is when looking at the labels, on for example meats, and then only to get a feeling of the general size of the how much I’m buying.

    For those not complaining, the benefit to them is the speed to open each image and they will greatly reduce their data consumption particularly when using expensive cell data but even when using less costly Wi-Fi.

    • The problem lies in that they’re not using a thumbnail or resized image on the main page. Every person is downloading every image at full size and resolution, which is later resized on the page using CSS.

      That’s not a good strategy. The main page should load resized thumbnails and the link should take you to the full sized image.

      Some plus sides are: they’re using nginx as the webserver software, which is really good at serving static content. It would seem that is hosted on a dedicated machine, which is good as well.

  3. Photos load fast on my lap top but I used to click on them for an expanded view and that does not work now. Is that just my lap top or has that feature been lost?

  4. The pictures are loading much faster. In the past if I quickly scrolled to the bottom of the page it could take a minute for the pictures to catch up and load. I tried scrolling to the bottom as quickly as I could and the pictures were able to keep up. No issues with clarity either.
