Big Discount on Costco Membership – Limited Time Only!

This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners, such as American Express. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here. Additionally, some of the offers on this page may no longer be available through Deals We Like.

Living Social is currently selling a Costco membership for $55, but you get a $20 gift cash card to use in the store, so ultimately costing you $35 for the year membership. Unfortunately though, this is only for new members and not those who are looking to renew their membership (you must not have been a member since October 1, 2015).

Screen Shot 2016-02-04 at 4.31.14 PMAdditionally with this deal, you’ll receive a coupon for the following Kirkland products (expire August 31, 2016):

  • AA Batteries 72-pack ($18.99 value)
  • Food Court Pizza ($9.95 value)
  • Organic Tortilla Chips ($4.99 value)
  • Plus, $25 off an order of $250 or more at (included in coupon mailer)

Once you purchase the deal, you will receive an email almost immediately that you must bring into Costco’s to activate your Gold Star Membership. You have until May 31, 2016 to activate the voucher and will then get a 12-month membership from the time the voucher is redeemed.

Remember though, as of right now Costco only accepts American Express credit cards. If you do not have an Amex you can still pay with cash, check, debit/ATM card, EBT, and Costco Cash Cards.

For those of you who are on the fence of whether or not you’ll actually use this membership, there is actually no harm in buying it now as the terms state: “If purchaser does not use voucher by May 31, 2016, purchaser may call LivingSocial to receive a refund for the paid value.” So you can always get your money back.

You can purchase this deal here. Enjoy!

  1. This is a misleading title and you should be ashamed for posting misinformation. The cost is $55, not $35. Subtracting a $20 cash card is disingenuous u troll

    • @sean – anyone purchasing this deal is also 100% going to use the costco gift card that comes along with it. I personally think of it as cash and taking it off the purchase price of the deal. Now if I were to include the coupon value and deduct that from the purchase price that would be another story as not everyone would be purchasing those items anyways.

  2. I never understand the people who come to this blog for all the wonderful shopping and savings advice and then belittle the blogger just because she didn’t write something exactly like they wanted. This blog is wonderful! I would have missed out on so many deals without it. If you don’t have some positive criticism, step away from the computer and keep it to yourself. No one is making you follow her advice.
