Space Bags Keep Deflating

I have bought 2 boxes of original Space Bags from Costco. None of the bags are holding air. It isn't rocket science. Could I really be doing something wrong? This is a sad day!

Costco is very good about taking returns even if you don't have the receipt. Get your money back.

I'm so glad to hear I'm not the only one who has this problem (not glad for you though)! I really hate those things. I have bought them 4 times over the last 10 years (2 years ago is the most recent) and not one single time has it ever held for me! I thought I was doing something wrong because everyone else says how wonderful they are, but I have more luck with plain trash bags!

I loved mine at first. I am a military spouse so we move a lot. However, during the actual move most of the air came out and we even stored the space bags in plasic totes.

Most definitely talk to the space bags manufacturer. They are excellent in trying to help and get the problem fixed. I've used their bags for almost 8 years. They are, however, more for storing and not for being bounced around on a move (being military I, too, used them during the move). For regular storage I have been able to keep them in the bag for 3-4 months without having to revac or reseal.
