If you still aren't a Costco member (what are you waiting for?), today should be the day you decide to join: Groupon is currently offering a special deal on a Gold Star Membership. It's only good for a limited time, so push back your noon meeting, finish reading this story, and then head over to Groupon.
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 February 1, 2018 in order to qualify.)
Buy: One-Year Costco Gold Star Membership, $60 at Groupon
We know what you're thinking: "Hey, that's how much a Gold Star Membership usually costs!" And you are not wrong. But that $60 also gets you a $20 Costco Cash Card and a few coupons that add up to value of $64.98.
- Free Kirkland Signature AA batteries (usually $19.99 for 72)
- Free Kirkland Signature disinfecting wipes variety four-pack (usually $9.99 for a four-pack)
- $10 off fresh meat (beef, chicken, pork, or fish; excludes deli items)
- $25 off an order of $250 on Costco.com
So in total, the package is worth up to $144.98 and you only have to spend $60. Seems like a pretty good deal to us — especially if you've been on fence about whether or not you want to join.
