This $60 Costco Gold Star membership comes with a $20 gift card and coupons

If you're not a Costco member yet, it might be time to change that. Right now at Groupon, you can get a one-year Costco Gold Star Membership (opens in new tab) for $60, which is what it normally costs. The clincher here is that you'll also get a $20 Costco shop card and a ton of exclusive coupons.

While this states that it is for new members only, you're technically eligible for the deal if you had a membership that expired before May 1st, 2019. This package has a total value of around $150, and it's only available for a limited time.

1-Year Costco Gold Star Membership + $20 Costco Shop Card + Coupons (opens in new tab)

As long as you haven't had a membership since May 1st, you're eligible for this incredible deal. This membership usually costs $60, but you're getting tons of extra value with the coupons and the gift card. This deal is valid for a limited time.

This includes a one-year Costco Gold Membership card for the primary cardholder as well as an additional card for the rest of the household. The $20 Costco shop card is valid towards any purchase, including gas. You'll also get $70 worth of coupons, including a free container of Kirkland laundry detergent pacs, free paper towels, $10 off fresh meat, and $25 off an order of at least $250 on the Cosco website. Being a Costco member can pay off big time, not only because buying in bulk is economically smarter, but also because Costco frequently has member-exclusive deals on everything from food to tech that put its competitors' offers to shame.

Note that to qualify for this offer, you'll need to sign up for auto-renewal. However, if that's something that doesn't interest you, you can always add a reminder to your phone or calendar to cancel your membership in 360 days or something like that. Once you purchase, you'll need to redeem your voucher by December for a membership activation certificate. Bring that certificate to a Costco near you by the end of January 2020 to activate your membership.
