The $25 off $250 coupon is sitting in your email right after you sign up (Incorrect not always true)

You must join Costco as a new member by 01/31/19 to receive $20 Cash Card. The $20 Costco Cash Card will be mailed within 4 to 6 weeks of processing your membership application at a Costco location.

Must join at a store by Jan 31, 2019. Gift card expires Jan 31, 2019; $25 off $250 shopping is from a special page. Be careful of the gotchas.Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

Just happy to shop with Costco giftcard without membership hassle.
Except it holds up the line at checkout while they call over a supervisor to swipe their card. This is a huge hassle imo... I know this because I use that trick on occasion.

If you shop at Costco enough, the membership is definitely worth getting so you avoid being hassled.

Thanks for reminding me about that. Quick question. If I go in with a $100 Costco gift card. Can I only buy $100 worth of stuff or can I buy more and use a debit/credit/cash?
anything over, can be paid with visa card or cash.
if less than gc value, you can reuse it until depleted. only member can refill gc.

It all depends on the MOD at that particular time. Some will allow you to pay the difference with a VISA card. Some will play by the book, that is allowing you to only purchase up the face value of your Costco GC.
never have that problem, I always buy above GC value and pay with Visa card or cash.

Is Costco really worth it? They just opened a brand new one here and some people said it's not all that great. With the 1 membership can I bring my daughter or significant other when I go?

We love Costco but you have to know how to take advantage of it and what not to buy. Around us, their gas is 30-50 cents cheaper so we solely get our gas from there and it pays for the membership alone. If they have an appliance or TV/electronic you want, their added year of warranty and 90 day return policy is amazing. They also allow you to throw in cheap protection plans compared other stores.

Where they get you is when you buy a giant thing of Eggos and then you eat 4 Eggos every breakfast for 2 weeks. When before you'd have 4 Eggos every 6 months.

You get to make 1 additional card for a house member.

Not everything at Costco is cheaper. However, in general buying in bulk is cheaper. ask if you get the citi card, you get 4% back in gas which can eventually pay for the card.

Yes the fine print states Membership must be expired for 18 months. This makes it hard to do the alternating 12 month new memberships with the added Perks that Sam's Club offers. Has anyone actually seen a Costco employee tell someone they don't qualify when redeeming sooner than 18 months though? In my experience Sam's Club customer service doesn't even care who is listed on the voucher name and they override it.

"Valid for new memberships only. To qualify as a new member, an existing Costco membership must be expired at least 18 months or more. Not valid for renewal of an existing Costco membership or an upgrade of an existing membership to an Executive Membership."

For what it's worth I've never had Sams or Costco question returning back before the specified time. I usually let my membership expire for at least 6 mos before using one of these deals. With Costco my membership just expired but I bought several gift cards to hold me over.


Remember Costco memberships expire at the end of the month so your better off starting your new membership on the second of the month so you get 13 mos.

I know we are there two times a week and you would think people are looting the store with how much is flying out of the store. Hands down one of the best retailers. Returns could be a bit better with stored transactions on their CC they make it a pain for internal price matching.

The link takes you to a site run by a third party DCGone.com. Says so at the bottom. Has anyone pulled the trigger on this are they reputable?

Most of the times no issues using Visa or cash to pay the balance but was told once (in the 10 times I have used cash card) to use cash only...

I actually like the amount of brand name variety at sams (member of both). Everything increasingly is becoming Kirkland at Costco and sometimes I just want a bag of Doritos....

you can bring anybody along with you, you would just have to be present at the cashier if you buy anything since your picture is on the membership card.
