On Saturday, March 24th, select Costco Wholesale Stores will be opening their doors at 8AM for Active Duty Military, Veterans and their families to shop for an hour before the store is open to the general public. Head here to see if your local store is participating – this event is taking place in 117 warehouses across the United States.

During this event, there will be samples, snacks and product demos AND the first 100 attendees at each store will receive a FREE swag bag filled with goodies. Note that you will need an active Costco Membership to attend the event.


If you’re not a current Costco Member, active duty military and veterans can purchase a membership for $60 AND receive a FREE $20 Costco cash card and three free items!

(Thanks, Deonna!)

    Too bad it’s on a Saturday. It would be neat to get in there without the heavy weekend crowd. Sunday’s at Costco are horrid. Neither of my local stores will be participating.

      This event starts at 8am and Costco doesn’t open to regular members until 9am

    Does anyone know if Costco is having a deal for their membership any time soon? Just moved near a Costco and wanted a membership.

    This is sad, not in ILLINOIS. Good luck to everyone!

    It says that if you buy the certificate you do not get the $20 gift card or the free items. It is is the fine print at the bottom. Glad I read it before I paid for one 🙁

    Yay! Our local Costco is participating 🙂 Do I need to register or just show the military card?

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Hi there! Here are the details they list on entry – “Entry to the event requires Military ID or by showing your registration confirmation at the door at the selected Costco location.” 🙂
