Costco Memberships normally cost around $50. I want to let you in on a secret way you can get a membership for FREE! That’s right, FREE! This is a quick tip I learned a while ago when I was trying to decide if I wanted a Costco Card or another wholesale club.
Now, before you get all excited, you will have to pay the $50 joining fee to get your card. But, the repayment comes in when you take a look at the HUGE discounts you can get on the discount gift cards Costco sells. On a recent trip, I found packages of (2) $50 gift cards to McCormick and Schmick’s for ONLY $79.99 (a savings of $20!). Wow!! They also had discount gift cards for California Pizza Kitchen, Baja Fresh, a Coffee Shop (can’t think of the name) and several local restaurants.
Besides restaurants they sell $100 BedandBreakfast.com gift certificates for ONLY $79.99 and several others.
If you would like a Costco Membership, but you don’t want to pay for it, don’t forget about these great discount gift card offers. Your membership could be MORE than paid for with the purchase of just 3 restaurant gift cards!! The gift card offers are not always the same (from month to month and location to location). I would definitely double check with your Costco before purchasing the gift card. Just ask them what the current gift card offers are.
