This Is Not A Drill: Costco Is Giving New Members $145 In Freebies

Some of the links in this post are from our sponsors, and we might earn a commission if you click on one. We are letting you know because, as our grandmother taught us, an honest penny is better than a stolen dollar. Now, back to filling up your piggy banks.

For everyone who has been on the fence about joining Costco, we came across a deal that was both too good not to share and will be too good to pass up: join Costco and you’ll get $145 in freebies.

Now, as a refresher, a Costco membership usually costs $60 annually. Now, if you shop there enough, and buy in bulk, you’ll easily make back that membership fee.

But, this new Living Social and Groupon deal is sweetening the pot even more. For $60 (the regular price of a Costco Gold Star membership) you’ll get:

  1. A one-year Costco Gold Star membership with two cards for you and another member of your household
  2. $20 Costco cash card
  3. Coupons for Kirkland Signature products including: Free 72-count pack of Kirkland Signature AA batteries ($19.99), free variety 4-pack of Kirkland Signature disinfecting wipes ($9.99)
  4. $10 off a meat purchase including beef, chicken, pork or fish, not including deli items
  5. $25 off an order of $250 or more on Costco.com

Now, you are probably wondering what is the catch? We can’t seem to find one (and trust us, we did some digging). The one thing to be aware of is you can’t participate if you are a current member looking to renew, or if your membership expired after February 1, 2018.

And because we are all about saving money here at The Penny Pincher, we recommend once you get your Costco membership, you can get even more deals shopping the store using Ibotta. Simply download the Ibotta app, upload your receipts, and get cash back on eligible items. 

We might not be able to make grocery shopping completely free, but our goal is to get as close as possible!
