We did this exact deal two years ago and it has been one of the best money decisions we have made.
Honestly, we waited FOREVER before getting a membership to Costco as we just weren’t sure it would be worth it.
We live close to a Sam’s Club and we debate every year whether or not we are going to get a membership. We have ultimately decided to, but then a deal like this came along for Costco and we have benefitted much more from our Costco Membership. We LOVE it!
We ultimately decided to give it a go after hearing from hundreds about how much they love having a Costco membership. Many friends and even many of you, have said that they have a great selection of high quality and even organic produce and meats for a lot less. We know many people who are trying to live thriftier and healthier that LOVE their Costco membership. We never bought meat from Sam’s Club as I was striving for more healthy meats (i.e. grass-fed beef, natural chicken, etc.) and even organic if at all possible with our budget. We have bought a bunch of produce at Sam’s Club when we go and it is a good deal, but we had heard even better reports about the produce, eggs and milk at Costco in terms of both price and more possible organic options. Costco also has some great in-store coupons that we had heard about and seen!
Well, we took advantage of this deal two years ago and it has been one of the best deals ever. We will do a post sometime soon about what we love, but since this deal is ending soon, we thought we would let you know it is worth it, and in fact, a not-to-miss deal!
Why? Because with this deal from the group buying site Living Social, you will receive many freebies!
The membership is normally $55 if you walked into Costco today.
But on Living Social, you will pay $55 for an annual membership and receive all of this too! You can buy up to 3 memberships as a gift as well!
What this deal is that you spend $55 and here’s what you get:
- A One-Year Costco Membership ($40 value)
- A $20 Costco Cash card
- $29.47 in food and product vouchers. All new members will receive a pack of bonus coupons (a $29.47 value), good for a free Kirkland Signature™ 48-pack of AA batteries, a free rotisserie chicken, a free Kirkland Signature™ case of water, $4 off Kirkland Signature™ coffee, and $4 off Kirkland Signature albacore tuna. Note: these coupons expire on May 10, 2014. We just redeemed them all the first time we went to not have to worry about expiration dates!
Since the membership alone is $55, you will essentially receive $40 in additional freebies, plus $8 in coupons, which basically means a membership for $15! Awesome!
UPDATE: from 2/7 – 2/9, you can use coupon code: USA10 to save another 10%!
Please note: this deal is valid nationwide, it’s just hosted under a few cities on the site. But there are no location restrictions. The fine print states: “”To activate your Costco membership you must bring the printed Costco Membership Activation Certificate email or your printed confirmation page to your local Costco location.”
So what’s the verdict…..Will you be joining? If so, it looks like now is the right time!
