  • Visa or Costco may terminate this offer at any time without notice.

Our Verdict

Excellent deal for Costco members. Not sure if it’ll work for Costco Cash cards ($200 + $50 or $125 x 2) or other gift cards. Terms don’t exclude it so it should work. There are also a couple of gift card deals now, including iTunes and Chef’d gift card. Not sure if the limit will be enforced based on the Costco membership (as the terms indicate) or based on the Visa Checkout account and credit card.

Costco is running ‘5 days of deals’ beginning today. Hopefully there’ll be some more useful deals in the coming days as well.

I wrongly said that this promo had expired, when opening in incognito mode it worked just fine. In addition I don’t see anything about cash cards being excluded in the fine print, I updated the image in the post just in case they do change the terms.

That is weird, since I was able to access it on incognito, but we’ll see what happens. I can always use $250 in Costco money, although I would rather not float it.

William Charles

Yeah it’s very odd, I think they meant to kill the deal maybe?

Same with me. Opened incognito and i still see the offer. So went ahead and placed an order for 2x$125 cash cards. Lets see if it works out at the end.

Doesn’t work for me right now on incognito or regular.

Placed an order for Cash card. I am assuming that this is processed as a credit later – didn’t see anything on Costco order page.

I will update if credit posts, though doubt it will help anyone as I dont expect it to post before offer expires.

likely wont work – but hope it will.

People who have been trying to max out 5% quarterly warehouse have a hard time with costco cash since it charged from something other than costco

For Discover, it works successfully. Though last spring, you need to send sm to them to find back the 4%.

Jacob

That’s definitely not entirely true, if accurate at all. Discover just posted my 5% back automatically on $1,500 Costco cash cards during Q1 2018.

Anyone know if the Costco Citi credit card will code as a “Costco purchase” or will it be a “mobile wallet” purchase?

I wanted to max out Discover rotating category bonus this last week. I haven’t been successful. And this deal in Costco does not help.

I wonder how others maxed out Disc card this quarter,

If you are into MS, buy VGC (or their own GC if you shop there a lot) either at BJs, Sams or 7-11. They also have other GCs at slight discount like Dunkin, Subway.
If not, buy Costco GC online even if not for this offer, you get the 5%.

Just buy cash card at costco.com if you shop there. This deal doesn’t help as it is only valid on Visa card with visa checkout.

I also tried for a Cash card, no indication on my BOA Visa transaction whether it counted or not.

I am getting an error on checkout, anyone else having problems? “We’re sorry, but there is a problem with accepting payment at this time. Please try again later or contact”

nevermind, went through on the 2nd try. Site is super slow though so the error probably happened because of the traffic.

I recall there’s a “trick” where you can shop at Costco without a membership if you have one of their gift cards. I’m no fan of Costco. I honestly don’t understand why most folks shop at warehouse stores — you generally have to buy in bulk and tend to get mediocre prices. That said, in certain high price locations, Costco can save you money. Like I shop there in Kona, Hawaii when I’m renting a place with a kitchen (also a good place to buy gas there).

If I knew with 100% certainty this deal worked, I’d buy $250 in gift cards. But since there’s a little sketchiness on the deal at the moment, I’ll likely pass unless we get confirmation that it actually works.

Deal is only good for 3 days, according to terms statement credit won’t post for 6-8 weeks afterwards. That said, I have a membership so little risk to me, picked up $200 + $50 cards to use.

We are in Boston and have been shopping at Costco for a while, as a couple. It just depends what you buy. Some things come in ridiculously huge packages and will just go to waste, but others don’t. Random example is a six-pack Carr’s crackers is normally $8, often discounted to $6. Each pack goes for about $3 at most other grocery stores. The deals are there, just not every item.

You can go into a Costco with a cash gift card without membership and shop there.

If I use Visa checkout, does that void any extended warranty available from credit card?

Don’t think so

Stackable with the 25 off 250 coupon code?

Did $250 in costco cash cards. First order errored out saying try again later or contact customer service, website is slow. Tried again and it worked just fine. Used CFU on VisaCheckout. Took a couple minutes for the order to show in My Orders.

FYI Costco Cash cards can take a couple weeks to arrive and have no tracking.

Won’t shipping costs eat into $50 savings vs buying at warehouse?

Hence why everyone is buying the Costco brand gift cards.

I assume by “Limit one (1) statement credit per card and per member.”
means if i could add multiple visa card to visa checkout account and get $50 saving per card ?

BB

I’m assuming they mean 1 per Costco member, so it’d be linked to your membership number.

Might be one per costco member/visa checkout. That being said my wife has a separate costco account and we were able to double dip the 25 off 250 deal in December so it might work for 2 online accounts with one membership.

Itunes are on sale so probably will get that. Went to checkout and my $120 membership is due so maybe that will work also.

Bought $250 Costco cash with Costco visa. Like others it errors first time and went through 2nd time. Don’t really shop at Costco very often but usually get gas there so that’s my plan.

Thank goodness for my vantage west credit union connect Visa signature credit card, I get 5x or 5% cash back upon the $50 statement credit!!!

wondering if it works on the secondary costco membership… primary/secondary costco member have different #s, and we do have separate email logins and different visa cards

VM

I did it on both cards, hoping it works but not expecting it. I am actually not expecting cash cards to work period.
