If I want to sign up for a Costco Membership from Groupon which link should I use?

Seems like the deal was posted by JJ on May 23rd. Now it's a sponsored post on May 29th?

Did someone pay to get the referral to Groupon?

Groupon paid for it... No difference in links.

Arrived. 2 orders, split into six boxes!

Total is actually more than 100 pounds! Paid about $11 for it.

What are you doing with them all?

Told ya they have a good track record :)

They make their site so hard to understand that people feel like they always get a good deal, and once in a while there genuinely are amazing deals and afaik they've always honored them.

He's probably going to put them in a closet for "someday" to sort  them out into photo albums.

I took numerous gedolim pictures over the years, and I made a personal collection of my pictures. My kids trade their 'original' pictures with friends, and many boys have asked me for copies. I usually print about 5 or 7 copies of the set at a time, at a cost of about $20-$40.

I now have 100-to-200 copies of about 50 different pictures, ready for trading and giving out, at the cost of about $11.

I'm actually kicking myself that I didn't make an order of my personal pictures.

I assumed it would take too long to upload thousands of individual pictures, and the deal would die before I finished. I also didn't see JJ's take on the probability of fulfillment at the time, so I didn't think it was worth it to toil for something that probably would not ship.

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

What a nice flight deal to TLV. Shame I can't think of any dates to make it work. I did have some family book flights for a family wedding, though.
