For those of us that missed out on the recent Living Social deal for Costco:
1. If your company already offers a Corporate Perks acct, sign on with them. If not, you can try one of the ones found on Google. It only takes a minute to create the acct. Proof is not required. Here is one that is currently working:
2. Search within the Corporate Perks acct for Costco and click on their link for the $55 Gold Membership - New acct holders only! Fill out their form and print it. You'll need to take this to Costco to get your cards and free items. Unfortunately, as with all of these promotions, you have to be patient. They mail the coupons for the freebies.
3. As mentioned by others on SD's last time, there is a promotion going on where you can upgrade and be offered two $20 cash cards for the Executive Card, so there's no point in choosing the more expensive option right now. Update!
- An upgrade code has finally been found. You'll only see a $.01 discount off of the cost, but it'll confirm that it's been applied. You will receive a $20 cash card per person on the membership. (Upgrade both people to maximize the offer.) You may or may not want to wait a few days before upgrading. Code:
Here's what is included for the initial $55 Gold Star Membership:
Includes a Free Household Card
Limit: one Gold Star Membership per Household
Please ensure you have printed the Corporate Perks paperwork because it contains the code needed to get the freebies.

Lastly, for those of you not already aware, I was just reading online that Costco offers free tire rotation, balancing and flat repairs. Unfortunately, like someone just mentioned, this probably only applies if you buy the tires from them.
