I was cruising through the “hot deals” forum on Red Flag Deals and came by a great deal for purchasing a Costco membership! If you purchase a Costco membership online (Canada only), they will send you a $25 GIFT CARD along with it! All you have to do is use the coupon code “GSWEB25B” in the indicated field upon checkout (make sure you hit the “apply” button). Note that this deal is for NEW Goldstar memberships only, I don’t think it works for renewals.
I’ve been contemplating renewing my Costco membership since it expired in December 2006, the $55 + tax annual fee always makes me think twice. However, with the $25 gift card promotion, the effective membership cost is $55 + tax (14% in NL) = $62.70 – $25 = $37.70 for both me and my wife (2 cards). They had the same promotion last year, which coincidentally was when I signed up last year. :)
Here’s to another year of buying in bulk and eating lots of samples.
For more details on this deal, check out this thread.
Have a good weekend (eating samples at Costco) and I’ll see you on Monday.
Update Dec 24, 2008: There is a new code for Dec 2008 that will give you $10 off your new membership: GSWEB36
Speaking of saving money while shopping, how would you like to get a 4% chapters coupon, or 3.33% off from Canadian Tire, 1.33% from Westjet or 16% off already discounted magazine subscriptions? Check out my Great Canadian Rebates post for more details.
