I have been a costco member for 7+ years. Thinking of upgrading to Executive since I probably spend $2500 in-store and $1200 on gas. I get some cashback from Amex BlueCard but it might just be 1%. Any other advantages of executive membership besides the 2% cashback? Is it worth the upgrade?
Just as a heads up, gas purchases don't count towards your Executive rebates.
