9 Of Montreal Costco's Most Expensive Items (That You'll Low-key Want)
From car-priced sport simulators to intelligent toilets.
Many Montreal Costco shoppers subscribe to the notion that 'bigger is better,' opting for oversized quantities of everything from buckets of sauce to heaps of chocolate in the pursuit of savings. But not everything stocked by the wholesale retailer is low-cost.
In fact, Costco has high-end contraptions and even higher-priced luxury items that'll put the average shopping budget to shame.
Foresight Sports Eagle Package Golf Simulator
Foresight Sports Eagle Package Golf Simulator.
Why it's so pricey: For many, the joy of golf entails avoiding anything resembling athletic activity. With this simulator, you don't have to step onto a golf cart or even step foot outside. The product comes with a 30-course package, a full simulation enclosure, hitting mat and turf. Unfortunately, it does not simulate friends.
Samsung 85" 8K TV
Samsung 85" 8K TV.
Why it's so pricey: This gargantuan 85" television would probably take up the whole wall of your living room. It's ultra-thin and boasts 33 million pixels with a resolution four times that of 4K. Of course, few people have an internet connection fast enough to stream content in 8K and most films come out in 2K, but if you have this much money to blow on a television, you probably don't care about those details.
Imperia 5-piece Home Theatre Seating
Imperia 5-piece Home Theatre Seating.
Why it's so pricey: If you have a wall-sized television in your home, then you obviously also need cinema-style seating. These throne-like leather recliners are powered, so you can press a button to relax in ultimate luxury. They're "engineered to prevent sagging," in a curious boast by Costco. They also have LED cup holders with a "nice cool soft glow" and LED ambient base lighting to give them the look and feel of a tricked-out Supra.
Golden Designs Marstrand 6-person Barrel Steam Sauna
Golden Designs Marstrand 6-person Barrel Steam Sauna.
Why it's so pricey: You're not only getting a home sauna for under $10K, you're getting a barrel that you can sweat in like a fine wine. Up to six people fit in the belly of this Canada-made red-cedar beast. It comes with a wall-mounted stove and built-in control switches for easy use. No plumbing is needed, although you will need help assembling it — Costco recommends at least two people. You might also want to engage the assistance of a cooper.
NiceRink Gold Package Ice Rink
NiceRink Gold Package Ice Rink.
Why it's so pricey: You decided to build a pucking ice rink in your backyard. The whole 550-pound package comes with a 33-feet x 60-feet rink liner, resurfacer, bumper caps and plastic boards to make sure the surface stays flat through the winter.
Kohler Karing Smart Toilet
Kohler Karing Smart Toilet.
Why it's so pricey: It's the egg shape that indicates the intelligence of this toilet. Not only does it have a hands-free open and close feature, but it self-cleans after every cycle. The seat is heated for optimal bum comfort, and you can set the temperature using the accompanying wall-mounted touch-screen control panel.Details
Miele Superautomatic Countertop Coffee Machine
Miele Superautomatic Countertop Coffee Machine.
Why it's so pricey: This is the flagship coffee maker "for perfectionists" from German high-end domestic appliance manufacturer Miele. We're talking touch screen tech on this machine with three coffee bean containers and a system that grinds beans freshly for every cup… or two since it can brew a double dose of caffeine at the touch of a button. There's also an attachable milk frother for specialty coffees. The whole thing connects to wifi so you can manage the settings with your phone and program up to 10 user profiles — one to fit all of your moods.
'Extreme Celebration' Gift Basket
'Extreme Celebration' Gift Basket.
Why it's so pricey: This gift basket isn't for just any celebration, just the 'extreme' kind that calls for chocolate. According to Costco, the highlights of this basket include "lots of crunch" and a "multitude of Lindt." However, it also features copious amounts of Ghirardelli, Godiva and Cookie It Up.
Big Ass Fans — Smart Ceiling Fan
Big Ass Fans — Smart Ceiling Fan.
Why it's pricey: The charming "Big Ass" brand name of this ceiling fan only gives away part of its appeal. It's not only huge, with a 44-inch wingspan, but also outfitted with a Wi-Fi module that allows you to control its movement and lighting with your phone or Amazon Alexa commands. Given the sci-fi look, that feature may also call the mothership.
