Costco will practically pay you to get a membership

PHOENIX — It's back and even better! Costco is offering an unbeatable deal on a Gold Star membership if you buy it through Groupon or Living Social. We saw the same deal last year from both websites.

Get a voucher for a one-year Gold Star Costco membership for $60 through the discount site Groupon, and you'll get so many perks your membership will more than pay for itself. The deal is for new members only, you cannot use it to renew an existing membership.

According to the Groupon and Living Social deal pages, you'll receive:

  • A One-Year Costco Gold Star Membership, which includes: a membership card for the Primary Cardholder and one free Household Card for anyone over the age of 18 and living at the same address.
  • A $20 Costco Cash Card
  • Coupon for free Kirkland Signature AA Batteries 72 ct ($19.99 value)
  • Coupon for free Kirkland Signature Disinfecting Wipes Variety 4-Pack ($9.99 value)
  • Coupon for $10 off Fresh Meat (beef, chicken, pork, or fish; excludes deli items)
  • Coupon for $25 off an order of $250 on

So, you could buy a $60 membership directly through Costco and get just the membership, or you could buy it through one of these sites and get all of the perks!  

Really want to get a lot of bang for your buck? Download the Fry's 4x fuel points on gift cards coupon at Fry's and buy a Groupon gift card for $60 to purchase your membership voucher.  That will give you more than 20 cents off each gallon of gas at your next fill-up at select Fry's, Shell and Circle K fuel stations.
