1-Year Costco Membership Comes With $40 Gift Card Through December

Beyond groceries, Costco often slashes prices on games, TVs, laptops, and other popular electronics.


Costco is more than just a great place to shop for bulk groceries or toilet paper; it often has enticing deals on gaming and tech products. With the holiday shopping season winding down, purchasing last-minute gifts at Costco could wind up saving you some money. Much of what the store offers is exclusive to Costco members, but right now you can take advantage of the best sign-up deal of the year. All new members who sign up for a $60/year Costco Gold membership will receive a free $40 Digital Costco Shop Card.

This Costco promotion comes with a few caveats. You’ll want to read the lengthy fine print, but the main takeaway is that only new members are eligible for the gift card promotion, and you have to redeem your voucher by January 27, 2024. But if you’ve never been a Costco member, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better time to join. An annual Gold Membership typically costs $60, but with a $40 digital gift card, this essentially cuts that to just $20.

Beyond price cuts and member-only sales, you’ll also gain access to Costco gas stations, the Costco Travel center for discounted vacations, Costco Optical, Costco Pharmacy, and several other auxiliary perks. And as mentioned above, Costco frequently slashes prices on games or hosts exclusive deals for hot new tech and electronics. One such example is $100's worth of PSN gift cards for only $90 for members, which is basically like getting $10 free. That credit can be used toward sale-priced items on the PlayStation Store, letting you ultimately save even more.

Though the in-store shopping experience makes a Costco membership more valuable, the online deals this holiday may make it worth it regardless of whether you have a location near you.
