First of all, I am using my cellphone to try to post this deal. It is hard to do so. Therefore, I will go ahead and post what I can type first, then I will update/edit as needed later before losing what I already typed (which happened once already.)
"You must join Costco as a new member by December 31, 2016 to receive the Costco Cash Card. "
I saw this event on my Facebook page. The event is valid for selected Costco stores on the list. However, the new membership deal may be good for all the Costco locations (YMMV). I am not sure but it sounds like it is so whrn I read the fine prints on the "purchase" membership page.
You don't have to register to actually go to the event to get the coupon for the new membership deal, but you need to register to get the new Costco membership deal.
You get $20 cash card plus $43 worth of coupons including free pizza for NEW Gold card membership which is $55. If you get NEW Executive membership ($110), you get additional $20 cash card, according to the email confirmation email I received. (The additional $20 cash card for Executive membership part is YMMV because it doesn't mention on the page you pay for the new membership, however it is mentioned on an event confirmation email for the event.)
It says "a new member is someone who is either never been a member, or hasn't for 18 months minimum".
The couponsyou receive for this deal are:
Free food court pizza
$3 off fresh fruit bowl
$5 off Costco photo book
$25 off $250 purchase ar Costco.com
This is the confirmation email I received after registering the event:
Thank you for registering for Costco Mom Hour!

I asked on Facebook about how much Cash card for new Executive members are getting.
Costco CS repplied:
"Yes! That is correct, if you sign-up for a Gold Star membership you will receive a $20 cash card and coupons. If you sign-up for the Executive membership you will get 2 ($20) cash cards plus coupons. We would love to have you. Thanks for checking in! -Talia"
