Looking for a deal on a Costco membership? You’ve come to the right place!

Through August 31st, head on over here where you can score a FREE $10 or $20 Costco Shop Card when you sign up for a Costco Membership! Your Costco Shop Card can be used at any Costco warehouse, gas station, and online at Costco.com.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Costco is only allowing 2 people per membership card inside stores.

As a Costco member, you’ll score low warehouse prices on thousands of high-end brand-name products and services at more than 750 locations worldwide. And each Costco Gold Star Membership includes a membership card for you and one additional household card for anyone over the age of 18 and living at the same address.

Follow these steps to score this Costco Membership offer:

  • Receive your Costco Membership Activation Certificate by email.
  • Then just bring your Costco Membership Activation Certificate to any U.S. or Puerto Rico Costco location to join as a new member. Your Membership Activation Certificate will then be converted into a Costco membership and you’ll receive your membership card.
  • Costco Shop Cards will then be mailed within 4 to 6 weeks after you join Costco.

Note that the Membership Activation Certificate is not valid toward the renewal of an existing membership or an expired membership. To qualify as a new member, an existing Costco membership must be expired for 18 months or more.

    Did the deal change?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! I still find it available as I click through now. Be sure to scroll down a bit on the offer page to find the full details. If having issues on a mobile device, maybe switch to desktop view. Hope this helps!

      • Marissa

        The deal I saw posted earlier was with the $30 shop card. Is that still available or did it change to only $10? Sorry I should’ve been more specific.

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          No worries! Yes. These are the details for the new offer. Hope this helps!

  6. Angie

    If I buy this membership card here do I need to go into the store to activate it for buying online? I want to buy online and have a membership number and not sure I will get it if I purchase this offer… Thanks!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Angie! Here are the details on that –
      “Just bring your Costco Membership Activation Certificate to any U.S. or Puerto Rico Costco location to join as a new member. Your Membership Activation Certificate will then be converted into a Costco membership and you’ll receive your membership card.”

      Hope this helps!
