Costco doesn’t offer discount membership deals often, and this is the first time I see the option to score a Costco membership from wherever you are right now.
I’m so excited to share with you the two Costco Wholesale membership discounts.
Costco has more than 750 stores worldwide!
A Costco membership is valid for one year at all Costco locations worldwide.
COSTCO ONLINE SHOPPING
PLUS, if you sign up for Rakuten, you will get an extra $10 back on this membership deal. If you are new to Rakuten, you will get $40 back! New users who sign up through my link here get a bonus of $30 back on their first purchase! Rakuten is excellent for online shopping because you earn cashback on your purchases. The shipping charges are factored into the final price when you shop online at Costco.
MEMBERSHIP COST AT COSTCO
The Gold Star membership is $60 for the year. When you factor in the shop card and are a first-time Rakuten user, it’s like $20 for the membership at Costco.
The Gold Star Executive Membership is $120.00, and you will receive a $20 Shop Card. The Gold Star membership is more because you receive an annual 2% Reward (up to $1,000)* on eligible Costco and Costco.com purchases, plus additional benefits on select Costco Services.
The Gold Star Executive membership is the favorite option from many shoppers, especially in our Facebook group here,
Here’s what some of the members of our Facebook group have said about it.
- “U should always start with it. If u don’t get enough back u can get a refund. We don’t make big purchases thru Costco and it always pays for itself in full.”
- “We have it and it’s worth it – we buy all our tires and what not there.”
- “Yep, have always gotten more than I paid for back in over a decade. “
- “Worth it. I spend enough in diapers and wipes to make it worth it”
