Here's a great deal for those thinking about Costco membership (new members only):

Working Advantage https://www.workingadvantage.com/...odID=26085 has an awesome deal that basically rebates the cost of the membership via free items/coupons. Working Advantage is a membership website, usually people sign up through their employer for discounts/rewards. You'll need an account if you want to make this purchase. If you do some research (Google search) there are creative ways to sign up; my guess is savvy posters will chime in with suggestions. They've had a similar Costco promotion in the past, but it hasn't been available for quite some time.

A standard Costco Membership costs $55. Every Costco Membership Certificate purchased comes with coupons worth more than $50, including a FREE rotisserie chicken, Free Kirkland Signature TM 48 pk "AA" batteries, FREE Kirkland Signature Spring or drinking Water, 35/16.9oz. - and more! This coupon offer is valid through 12/31/12.

We used a similar offer to sign up for our last Costco membership & the free stuff was all useful stuff we enjoyed. It pretty much paid for the membership. We let our membership expire, but now that this is available we will open a new membership. The added bonus is the $10 in cash cards, which means you're actually coming out ahead if you want everything that's included!

A few notes:
* LIMITED TIME OFFER - $10 in savings! Each Costco Wholesale Gold Star Membership purchased between now and Wednesday, October 31, 2012 will receive 2 FREE $5 Cash Cards*.
* You can purchase two Membership Certificates at $55 each to join as an Executive Member
* Not valid for renewal of existing membership - this must be used for a new membership, tho I suppose you could cancel your existing one & then create a new membership.

UPDATE:
I received my package today, 100% legit. It's basically the same thing as when I've done this before with 2 x $5 cash cards added. Will be heading to Costco this week to redeem for membership. For those wondering what's included, here it is:
* Free Rotisserie Chicken (worth $5, some places they're $6)
* Free 48 pack AA batteries (worth about $13)
* Free 35 pack Kirkland Spring Water (worth about $4-5)
* Coupon for $5 off Kirkland Signature Roasted by Starbucks Coffee or Colombian Coffee 3-lb can ground
* Coupon for $5 off any fresh meat item (Costco has excellent meat quality at great prices)
* Coupon for $5 off a Food Court Fresh Baked 18" Pizza
* Coupon for $3 off Kirkland Signature Albacore Tuna (we have this a lot, it's great)
* Coupon for $3 off Kirkland Signature White Meat Chicken Breast (also love this)
* Coupon for $3 off Kirkland Signature Gourmet Chocolate Chunk Cookies
* Coupon for $1.50 off Fresh Produce Select Salad Mixes
* Coupon for $10 off pair of prescription eyeglasses

I won't use the coupon for eyeglasses, but will use everything else easily. It's about $23-24 in free stuff & $25.50 in coupons I'll definitely use, another $10 coupon I won't use. I'm still getting about $50 of value in addition to the $10 cash cards. If you're thinking about joining Costco at all, this makes it a no-brainer.

I thought of filling out the forms, etc. to get my wifes company to get an account with these shlocks...But, I would not trust workingadvantge.com to supply the items claimed in this deal. To wit a voucher that you can trade for a one year membership to Costco, and $10 worth of gift cards valid at Costco, AND a coupon book with coupons valid at Costco. Working advantage is a virtual unknown for a company that has 2,000,000 members (AKA B***S***)

Working Advantage is legit, my company uses it. Though I didn't think it was worth anything until I saw this deal. Too bad I just got a Costco membership the old fashioned way two weeks ago, thanks for the deal OP.

Why is Working Advantage a virtual unknown & why wouldn't you trust these 'shlocks' as you call them? Is there a history or reason to call them 'shlocks'?

As mentioned above, we've done a similar deal with them in the past; the free items/coupons & membership were all legit. I'd heard rumblings that this deal would never come along again since Costco's having no trouble selling memberships (just went up from $50 to $55). This is a pleasant surprise for us, so I'm taking advantage while we can - I don't expect it to come around again anytime soon.

I just don't see the downside. The membership to Working Advantage doesn't cost anything; you may need to get creative to sign up if your company doesn't already have an account. Worst case, if you're worried about not getting this, pay via credit card & dispute the charges if it doesn't show.

I checked on this deal today. It's now only a $5 cash card. Also, there is a shipping charge; least expensive is $2.75.

Note - becoming a Working Advantage member only required a few minutes on Google - )

The Coke rewards 250 point deal is still valid. It is now better than this deal!,,,

Follow the instructions in post number 1 to find the deal on mycokerewards.com.

The points show up in your mcr account in about 3~4 weeks iirc...
