    • The membership is definitely worth it. Even if you don't shop very often.

    • They have a business model that is working well here and that's great, in Europe the same model could easily fail.
      Maybe no membership fee would bring them new shoppers though and they will be able to keep their prices as low....etc...who knows :)
      I've read a few articles that state Costco's profit is almost 100% from membership fee's due to how low they sell the products, which is likely why they are raising membership fee's soon

    • wondering if you can combine this with the groupon offer. I still have my groupon...planning on activating the membership this week.

      cannot beleive that people paying a membership to buy. (even with deals)
      Should be the other way around almost.

      Coming from France i find that concept disturbing.
      The membership fee discourages a demographic that Costco is not interested in. That is the reason "People of Costco" website does not exist.

    • I got the $10 cash card two years ago when my friend referred me to sign up for a membership. It is good to have the promotion all the time. But I never bring any of my friends there to sign up for a membership. It seems that the most expensive membership is better to get rebate back soon.

      Don't know why this post got two down votes.

      Costco pays me to shop there... with my executive membership, th 2% cash back covers more than the membership fees... I am not making millions with it, but I do make some $. enough to make the executive membership free, + some more $

      It depends what your needs are. If you're a single dude, chances are a membership won't be worth it. As a couple or a family, much more likely to be worth your money.

      For me, a few specific items make the Costco membership worth it to me. For example, I purchase the Kirkland Dress Shirts at $19.99-$24.99 to wear at work, and I typically go through 3-4 shirts a year. Considering that a shirt of comparable quality would run me $70-100 from a retail store, buying a few shirts a year is already worth the money I spent on the membership.

      For the average family, even household supplies alone is worth getting a membership for. Toilet paper, detergents, soaps are all significantly cheaper than most other places.

    • It doesn't cost that much. That is the break even with executive to get your membership for free basically for the year just in the 2% cash back.

      6215 per year is 518 per month. 6215*0.02=124.30 which is 110+tax which is the cost of the membership.
      $6215/year is nothing though... that's our Costco grocery bill alone.. not to mention the stove, washer/dryer and countless daily items that we need.

    • Sorry...Dumb question..Where does it say executive membership is $518/month ? We pay $110 per year.

      I thought the same. They were part of the American invasion. Home Depot, Staples, Walmart & Costco.

      Someone gave me a gift card that I can use for membership, been sitting on it for a year, waiting for a deal on something I want. Time to cash it in if the membership is going up.
      With membership, I understand that you don't need a receipt for returns. And they have a good return policy.
      They have been running a deal with Ford for the last few years that gets you $1,000 a vehicle. So if you are thinking about buying a Ford you need to buy a card a year ahead.

    • Well the Costco membership is their business model, without it, prices would just be higher. They can't give you some of these lower prices and not charge a membership fee

    • Only for the more expensive executive membership which costs double. You have to spend $6215/yr to recoup the membership cost, that's $518/mth. It's not for everyone.

    • Of course i'm not obliged of anything i was only raising people attention about it.
      Everyone will come to their own conclusion.

      Living in Quebec, i'm not impressed with Provigo or IGA plans so far.

    • Right, we have 20++ more chain stores other than Costco in Canada that don't require any membership at all and have their own point programs which can be redeemed in store.

      no one is forcing anyone to pay for a Costco membership, totally optional if you feel the value is there for your shopping needs

    • i Still think the membership should be free, but thanks for clarifying it.

      For example, in France the well known grocery store called Carrefour, let you earn money on some products and you can apply the money you saved instantly on your current receipt, or you can cumulate it ...it s a free card that they gave you.

      They already making money using our informations, so why paying for more that's my point.

    • You get a rebate at the end of each year for % of your purchases, so the membership pays for itself. The concept is working, Costco has experienced tremendous growth over past decade. Great if you've been holding their shares.

    • This deal comes on and off. Yes it did exist in the past, but then it expired. Now it is back.
      AFAIK, it's always on regardless of the date at the bottom of the page.. I've never known this to be not offered
      Only for the more expensive executive membership which costs double. You have to spend $6215/yr to recoup the membership cost, that's $518/mth. It's not for everyone.

      The basic membership will pay for itself just from the savings on gas/propane purchases and is worthwhile for that alone.

      Costco in general has savings on some items but not for others, for instance eggs are always more $ than the grocery store (for normal packs)
      Word! Gas savings are even more when you have to use 91, most times it's at least 15 cents cheaper.. depending on how often you fill up, you can break even on membership within a few months

      Propane I pay around $8-9 to fill a tank, elsewhere it's usually close to $20

      Also those Adirondack chairs, they sell them for $150 regular.. casually browsing around other furniture places I see them going for $300 for the exact same chair! So I was even happier when I got a couple on clearance from Costco for $100!

      No need to buy all your stuff there, shop smart and the membership easily pays for itself
