    We have our cash back voucher, we were disappointed to learn you can use it online shopping. Does anyone know if I can buy a gift card with it at the store?

    • Ruth

      To use your voucher for Costco online shopping, you can go to a warehouse and exchange it for a gift card which can be used online – I do this every year with my voucher

      • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

        Thanks so much for this helpful response, Ruth! Good to know you’ve been able to exchange yours in the warehouse! ❤️

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Kor! I found some helpful info on their shop cards in the FAQ for you – For purchases, enter the 16-digit Shop Card number and 4-digit PIN on the payment page. For purchases at a Costco warehouse, present the mobile version or bring a printed copy of your Costco Digital Shop Card voucher to the cashier at checkout. If preferred, you can take your Digital Shop Card to your local warehouse, where you can use it to purchase a physical Shop Card of the same value. Hoping this might be helpful! 🤞💕

    Just signed up and never received $30

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey pastel! I found this on their site for you for the shop cards that you can purchase individually without a membership, which might be the case for this offer as well – “Delivery of Digital Shop Card is normally within 2 hours of receiving your Costco Order Confirmation email. Digital Shop Cards may take up to 24 hours in some instances.” You might also check your spam/junk inboxes for the email address If 24 hours has passed and you still haven’t received your offer, be sure to reach out to their customer service at 1-800-774-2678. Hoping it arrives for you soon! 🤞💕

  3. Desiree Cresta

    I actually went to do this today because I randomly found the code while googling for codes. It showed it as taking 1 penny off and didn’t confirm I’d get the card anywhere so I didn’t go through with it. Should it have said it do there before submitting info?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Desiree! I’m seeing that at checkout as well. That is how the offer will look when applied. Hoping that offers some peace of mind. 🥰

  4. pamfagin

    Weird —- I’m only getting a one cent discount. Thoughts ??

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Sorry for that confusion. It seems that is how the offer will appear at checkout once applied. 💕

      • Pam Fagin

        Thanks Amber ! Does that tell me that the $30 discount will not be applied

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          You’re welcome! 💕 It actually isn’t a discount but a $30 Digital Shop Card that you’ll receive. As long as you apply the code above at checkout, you should be good to go! Feel free to reach out to customer service with any additional questions or concerns. 🤗 1-800-774-2678

  5. pastel

    This is a scam I never received the $30 shop card

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey there pastel! This is a legitimate offer from Costco. ❤️ So sorry you haven’t received your digital shop card yet. You might reach out to their customer service at 1-800-774-2678 to see if they can further assist you with locating your card. 🤞

  6. Sofia

    Does anyone know how long this offer is good for? I would like to have my secondary cardholder sign up for a card this year but our current membership doesn’t expire until July. Thank you!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Great question, Sofia. It looks like this offer is set to expire on June 11th, 2023. ❤️

  7. Danielle Murphy

    Does this only work for new gold star members? Not new executive members? I want to sign up but want to go the executive route but want the $30.

    • Trish (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey there, Danielle! I did check with Costco customer service and they said that this promotion will work for both the new Gold Star Membership and the new Executive Membership. Hoping this helps! 💕
