With an Executive Membership you’ll get 2% cash back on ALL qualified Costco purchases!

Wanting even more benefits? You can opt to upgrade from this Gold Star Membership to their Executive membership at any time! While the cost to upgrade is $60 per year, Costco will prorate the amount based on the months remaining in your current membership. However, purchases made prior to upgrading are not eligible for the 2% Reward though.

With either membership, you’ll get the best prices on everything from groceries to electronics but you’ll score even more savings with an Executive Membership, all while staying in the know about the latest Costco news and products. 🙌

To upgrade from Gold Star to Executive, you can visit the courtesy desk at your local club or do it right online in the renewal section of your Costco account.

These savings include a ton of our favorite items, like Costco’s home goods, pre-made meals, and that delectable sheet cake. 🤤 Yes, 2% CASH BACK ON CAKE!! Best news EVER! 😆

In the unlikely event that you don’t accumulate much in cash back rewards, Costco will refund you the difference from the $60 upgrade fee to cover the cost! So, you really can’t lose either way. 🙌

Note: Cashback on purchases is limited to $1,000 per year. See the full 2% cashback terms here.

Yep, it’s true! Costco has a whole roster of services available to help its members with everything from car loans to identity protection. While these services are open to Gold Star members as well, Executive members may receive lower rates than Gold Star members.

    I have tried getting to this, but Groupon keeps showing that it’s down. this has been like 3 days now…. has anyone else had any issues or any luck getting this ?

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Jill! Sorry for the issues! You might try switching to a different browser. I was getting the same message on my laptop using Google Chrome, but when I switched to Safari, it pulled up right away. Hoping this works for you too! πŸ€žπŸ’•

    Do I have to purchase the gold first to get the deal and then call to upgrade it? Groupon does not give me an option to upgrade.

    • Trish (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey there! Yes, the Groupon offer is for the Gold membership. To upgrade from Gold Star to Executive, you can visit the courtesy desk at your local club or do it right online in the renewal section of your Costco account. Hoping this is helpful! πŸ’—

    I don’t have a Costco near me at all but can you get free shipping with a membership?

    Hello I purchased this deal but have yet to receive the $40 gift card incentive. Does anyone know who to contact about that or what I need to do since it’s been a month already. Thank you in advance!

    • Trish (Hip Sidekick)

      So sorry to hear you haven’t received the shop card yet, Pricilla! You should have received this in your email about 2 weeks after purchasing. You might check your junk/spam folder to see if it landed there. If still not able to find it, you can reach out to customer support by email here. Hoping this is helpful! 🀞❀️
