Looks like August is the month that brings membership promotion offer from Costco. New members can sign in for a new account by paying $60 for Gold Star membership, and $120 for Executive membership. Promo shop card of $40 will be mailed around a month from sign-up, and $40 off $250+ code will be sent via an email.

Perhaps, your membership need to have expired 18+ months, in order to be considered as a new member. The promotion appears to have started yesterday, and is valid till 22nd of this month

It looks to get the auto renew to work you have to. I initially did a mastercard so my auto renew didn't get set up. I chatted with costco just now and they said if I add the auto renew today since I signed up today that I will get the promo. They also said there is no promo code to enter to get the promo. I saved the chat in case this doesn't actually happen.

I tried with Mastercard.........you can buy the membership, but you won't get the deal. I tried with Visa and got the deal. You'll be able to tell at checkout. When you apply SUMMER21 discount code, you'll see a one penny discount. So price will be $59.99 if the coupon was properly applied.

This is what I got from Costco customer support.

In response to your question yesterday. The promo code for the $40 off $250 coupon will be sent out within a week of signing up. Just keep an eye on your inbox within the next week.
08-05-2021 at 07:15 PM
YES. It arrives by email in 1-2 weeks per the terms and conditions shown on Groupon. (This is actually a Groupon deal)

I didn't want to take a chance as it shows "while supplies last". I signed up on Aug 5. The expiration on the account shows 8/31/22. So looks like they give you until the end of the month in which you sign up.
08-21-2021 at 10:01 AM
They have pulled it out earlier than 08/22.

Pretty sure you cannot, as car rentals are a whole different site, not costco.com.

No, Karen, Costco doesn't need you and we don't either.
Thanks. I just signed up.

Edit: just noticed these terms at the bottom which you don't know are there unless you scroll because there is no asterisk or anything to tell you there are special terms.



It mentions a promo code and that you have to use a visa both of which I didn't so no idea if I got the promo or not. I did not get a 1 penny reduction in price.

I did it last time. I got the $40 cash card. But I never received that $40 off $250 coupon by email or mail.

They've denied me in the past for being a member 10 years before. Depends on who you get I guess.

I don't have a Costco anywhere near me but occasionally I see online deals I'm interested in. Seems like this would be a good way to be able to buy online without the penalty?
