Aloha All,

Seemed to be a pallet.

right now they have the Halloween costumes up.  if you go down the main aisle towards the meat section, the lifsstraws will be on your right about one or two aisles after the costumes.  I want to say it's near the coolers, tents, etc. 

I may be going there today...so I will see if I can get a pic.

If I go back this week, maybe I'll ask for a price check.  They might have overlooked replacing the placard with the discount price version.

Thanks 8oh896817 for the heads up on these Life Straws.

And thanks Flapp for the confirmation on the product being available at Waipio Costco.

I asked my daughter to pick up a couple when she goes to Costco Waipio.  I'll let her know to ask for a price confirmation if the price is still $49.99.

If I were going to buy from Waipio, and a price check says it's really $49.99, I'd show the OP's photo and request a price match.

My daughter just loves to take on businesses on price discrepancies.  I'll arm her with the OP's pic like you suggested and send her off to battle, lol!

Not sure if lifestraws have improved, but last I know it does not filter out leptospirosis, a common bacteria in Hawaii water making it useless here.  This would be more useful on the mainland.

For lepto, I got a grayl purifier which gets rid of everything, and a steripen that kills everything.

Dang you're right. Only their bigger filters are rated for lepto. So much for drinking straight from a puddle. I used one of those before on Kauai and did not get sick. Guess I was lucky.
