  • Offer is not eligible for our promo codes or other discounts.

Our Verdict

All in, the cost can be as little as $0, depending how you value the coupons. Also, remember to go through a shopping portal, Topcashback is currently at 12% so that should get you $7.20 back. (If you’re new to Topcashback, you can find our referral links for all the various shopping portals here.)

There’s also a separate deal for existing Costco members to get a free $20 Cash Card by enrolling in auto-renew.

Is a household member (my hubby) listed on my account considered a “new member” for this promotion?

No. I asked rep at local membership service when there was another deal.

I have a different DP on that. My wife just did it with no issues at all. She didn’t alert the rep that she’d been a household member on my membership though. Maybe the key is that my membership (and so her household registration) is expired, although by a couple weeks only.

I was wondering the same except that he is not listed on my membership.

YES! Just got this email. Been hoping to find an offer before I signed up.

Don’t forget to use a portal to get the Groupon, Southwest is 2 points per dollar for Groupon.

American Airlines eshopping sent me a targeted bonus by e-mail with language “you won’t find this on the site”. 500 mile AA bonus when you spend $50 or more at Groupon between 5/25 and 5/31. Perfect!!

can the $25 off an order of $250 on Costco.com be used on gift cards?

No

useless crap as gifts…

You don’t use batteries? The bulk meat is one of the main reasons I am a wholesale club member. This seems a lot better than cookies or flowers.

I was thinking of just selling the 72 batteries new in package at an upcoming garage sale for $10 at half the retail price. Happy to sell a “gift” for cash profit. Hardly useless. Alternative, put on craigslist. Someone will buy it.

Wow, I sent this along to my parents in VA. They won’t go on weekends because their location(Fredericksburg) is in such a busy area, but during the week it’s fine(and they are retired so they have that luxury!) I’d been getting them Costco Cash cards as gifts, now I’ll have to find something else.

If you’re paying with Groupon Bucks, be careful what portal you use. Some exclude purchases made redeeming Groupon bucks, and I have had that be enforced in the past.

Got an email from LivingSocial, they have the exact same deal, copied and pasted verbatim including all terms. I don’t see a real difference, other than maybe portal payouts and if it’s easier to get discounted gift cards at one or the other.

Groupon bought Living Social a while back. They now have matching deals all of the time.

anyone knows what groupon’s refund policy for this deal? if costco won’t approve the promotion for a household member, will one get a refund from groupon if cancelling?

MickeyMouse

Yes they will refund or give you Groupon Bucks, provided you HAVE NOT viewed the redemption code. Kind of a Catch22 though since using the redemption code is the way to know if you’re eligible.

Hell yes, they have the best adjustable bed deal around, so I needed to buy a membership anyway. Love this site!

How do they determine if you are a new member? Mine expired April 30th. Can I just use a new email address?

Some people received Groupon offer of 50% discount upto $25. Which stacks with this (mine did, ymmv). Which make this even better.

Gerald

I tried to use a 20% off coupon code and it didn’t work. The last bullet says “Offer is not eligible for our promo codes or other discounts,” so I’m surprised it worked for you.

It’s been 8 weeks since I activated my membership but I didn’t receive anything in the mail… Can someone tell me where/who I need to contact to get the cash card and coupons? Thanks!
