Most of what I see around here are flats and usually $4.50/lb. Would like to try a larger cut for once...
I recently joined KCBS and when I got my membership card immediately printed out the RD day pass from the members section and headed over to Needham. Showed both at the desk and I was issued a pass, no questions asked. As MarleyMan said, it was pretty simple. Be prepared, though, it is much more of a 'warehouse' than Costco/BJ's (kind of dirty and grimy, actually). But the selection was great.
I have been getting the flats at BJ's but looking forward to trying a packer from RD when the weather smooths out.
