If you convert the voucher into your membership on the 1st of the month you get 13 months of membership.

Has Anyone received the coupons in mail ?

Note that if you took advantage of a trial membership during the last year you can't that advantage of the deal.


Be aware that it is very possible to shop at Costco WITHOUT a membership.
The only catch is that you have to know someone with a Costco membership you can use once.

1. Go here http://www.costco.com/Costco-Cash...24438.html
2. Buy several $25 cards (or one big card if you prefer). They will be shipped to you in 7-9 business days.
3. Since the Cash Card is essentially a gift card, it becomes your "membership". Use the Cash Card for at least part of the purchase each time you go to Costco. As long as part of the purchase is on the Costco Card you can pay the rest of the balance with cash or debit (no Amex as far as I've heard, but can't confirm).
4. Profit Smilie

Alternatively, you can purchase cards in warehouse, although you still need a membership to do so. Hope this helps someone. Post #555 - sweyers

If you do not know anyone with a membership, register for an account at giftcardgranny.com which searches multiple giftcard selling sites including ebay and set up an alert to be notified when a Costco GC becomes available. I generally receive an alert twice a week. The first time you go to Costco, be sure to use the entire value of your purchased gift card and buy a new cash card for piece of mind; the seller of the costco card may have kept the GC number. -NutsAboutGolf


Wait for the $50 Cash Card. Despite the title, this deal was nationwide

Your question about eligibility might be answered here in post #211

Use shopDiscover to get 5% cashback


$20 cash card is given to you when you sign up. Only the coupons are mailed to you.

Coupon code - USA10 for 10% off making it $49.50

These same questions keep getting asked so I am posting the responses:

Can I use this deal?

Costco flags primary members forever, but YMMV. If you have ever been a primary cardholder, then this deal will probably not work for you.
If you were a secondary card holder and you were never a primary, this deal will work for you.

Will my Costco accept the Living Social voucher?
Call your Costco to make sure they will accept the Living Social voucher. One in my area would not, but the other 10 miles away said no problem.

When do I get my cash card and coupons?
You get the cash card right away. The coupons will be mailed to you.

Can I pay with bitcoin at CostCo?
Costco only accepts AMEX and debit card with PIN. No other CC's (vica, MC, discover, etc).

Can I use this for an Exec membership?
Some posters are reporting extra perks being offered to upgrade to an Executive Membership (additional $55 which yields you 2% cashback). It is warehouse specific so YMMV.

When do I have to activate my membership by?
May 10, 2014

What does paid value expires February 5th mean?
It means that you have until May 10th to get the deal, but whatever you paid for it will still be available until February 5, 2019 if you don't use it for the deal. Ex. You paid $15 for $25 to a store, until May 10th is good for $25 after that it is only good for the original $15.

Locations this worked:
Naperville, IL
Everett, MA
Bloomingdale, IL

Locations this didn't work:
Bolingbrook, IL

*********I was a Costco member about 7 years ago and was given my membership card with all the perks with zero issues. The rep said that she thought it was 18 months, which was confirmed by somebody else in the thread via Costco's Customer Service email.

I have a Sam's Club membership that I got for $20 for two person household. Is the costco worth it?
Costco kills Sam's club hands down in both price and quality plus I would much rather support a company that takes care of their employees.Smilie

Not if your membership expired under 2 months ago. They may reject you for longer than 2 months. A year?

I disagree. I never see any posts regarding deals at Costco but have personally made bank off of Sam's love of clearancing down vitas, guitarsmith bundles and Wii u.

I got an email from LivingSocial, but when I try to activate the code it states its an invalid code. I will try again later.

As a former Sam's Club member for 5 years and now both a BJ's and Costco member for past 5 years as well, I can vouch Sam's is the lesser of the 3 in terms of overall service (and I've accompanied friends at Sam's quitr a few times since). Not to say Sam's is bad, to each his/her own, but my personal favorite is Costco if all 3 were equally distant from my work or house.
