If you’ve been on the fence about joining Costco, or maybe you’ve just been looking for a reason to upgrade your GoldStar membership, well, this might just be the deal for you. For another day and a half, you can get a special offer on Costco US membership from Zulily.com but you can’t laze about on this one since the offer is only good for another 36 hours!
Their offer doesn’t get you a cheaper price for the actual membership, but they include the big bonus of $50.00 worth of Costco coupons for you to break in your new membership, including three completely free items. And the free items include one of my favourite Costco things, a rotisserie chicken! In addition to the chicken you can also get a free 48 pack of batteries (I’m guessing this is for the Kirkland Signature brand batteries but they don’t specify) and a 35 bottle case of Kirkland Signature water. If you were going to sign up for a membership anyway or upgrade yours, you might as well get some free stuff and savings as well.
So, how does this deal work? Once you’ve made your purchase through Zulily for $55.00, you will get an activation card (or two) in the mail along with the coupons. When you have your activation card you can then take that to your local Costco and use it to get your new Costco membership card. Just a side note, don’t forget to have your hair brushed because they do put your photo on the back of your membership card. If you are a totally new Costco member you can get a single activation card to join at the GoldStar or Business level or you can buy two of the deals, getting two activation cards, and sign up for an Executive membership with the 2% rebate (on the majority of your Costco purchases). If you are an existing Costco member, you can still take advantage of this deal and use your activation card to upgrade your existing GoldStar or Business membership to an Executive membership. For all of the fine details of a Costco membership, you should read through all of the details on the Costco.com website.
Included in the $55.00 price you will get free shipping of your activation card and coupons. The cards will ship in about 3 to 7 days according to Zulily. One other thing, you will have to sign up for a Zulily account before you can purchase the deal (they only require an email address, a password, and your name to create your new account). Zulily offers a wide variety of great deals on items for moms, babies, kids and your home.
