Attention, bargain-lovers! We present to you the ultimate mash-up offer that you won’t be able to resist: a Groupon for a Gold Star Costco membership. Yes, you heard that right. It’s what your money-saving dreams are made of! A deal within a deal! A bargain-hunter’s inception!

The flash deals site is currently offering a special deal (for a limited time) for new Costco member sign-ups only. So if you’re interested, stop what you’re doing, head on over to Groupon, and go make yourself a card-toting Costco member. But before you do that, here’s the fine print.

For $60, you can get a one-year Gold Star Membership, which includes a membership card for the Primary Cardholder and one free Household Card for anyone over the age of 18 and living at the same address. (Note: This offer is only good for new memberships. If you were a Costco member at one point and are looking to use this deal to renew, your previous membership must have expired before May 1, 2019 in order to qualify.)

For all you eagle-eyed Costco-lovers, yes it’s true that a Gold Star Membership typically cost $60. But this deal ups the ante by throwing in a $20 Costco Cash Card and a few bonus deals that add up to value of $64.98, including the following:

  • Free Kirkland Signature Ultra Clean HE Laundry Detergent Pacs ($17.99 value)
  • Free Kirkland Signature Create-a-Size® Paper Towels ($15.99 value)
  • $10 off fresh meat (beef, chicken, pork, or fish; excludes deli items)
  • $25 off an order of $250 on

If you’re not a Costco member already (ahem, what’s taken so long?) now is your chance to take advantage of the deal of all deals. It won’t be long now before you’re loading up your cart with a 72-pound wheel of Parmigiano-Reggiano (and all the other treasures that Costco has to offer).
