    Took advantage of the groupon deal a few months ago and best decision ever. I did not realize how much costco would come in handy. Thank you for the deal.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! SO glad you have found your membership so useful, Kassandra! You’re most welcome!

    • Dawn

      Same!!! I think I have more than paid for my membership with amazing chickens and toilet paper savings. I did not even realize what great meat was until I went to Costco. Cheaper and better than Kroger.

    Signed up over a year ago when you posted a deal. I absolutely love Costco now. We just went through them to buy our new air conditioner, they offered 15% back in Costco cash. We were able to get the top of the line unit for the same price as the one level down after all rebates. Best part is now my power bill will be much cheaper each month.

    I opened new membership day before yesterday over the phone .. and after seeing this deal I’m trying to get cash card but no one is giving me this deal :(((

      You can cancel your membership if your not satisfied. Might be best to go in store to speak with someone

      • Deena

        Will surely try that .. thanks 🙂

    I was told you could shop at Costco without a membership if using a Coatco gift card… anyone know if this is true? Would love to do some shopping there, but not sure I’d go often enough to justify getting a membership.

    • queen62

      You can shop with giftcard but they won’t accept any other payment from you if the card is $50 do not spend more than that less is fine.

      • Jennifer

        I used to purchase a bunch of $10 Costco gift cards for my son in college, who didn’t have a membership. It would be his “pass” to get in and then he and his friends were able to buy as much as they wanted beyond the $10 gift card amount (well into the $100’s). The best bet is to call your local Costco and see if they will allow you to spend over your gift card amount since it looks like results vary.

      • Lisa

        Do you get the money back if it’s less? Probably up to a certain amount?

        • Donna

          Love Costco but you will never spend less than $10 in there. Buying in bulk isn’t cheap😊

    • Crescent City Couponer

      Yes, but the language on their web site has changed. It used to say both members and “non-members may use the Costco Cash Cards to shop at any Costco location in the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada and online.” The 5% nonmember surcharge will still apply to online purchases, however.

      I like Costco, but it just doesn’t work for single person households with no storage.
