About this Deal
Assuming you're able to use the credits, it's like making money on the deal.
Want to bulk up? Food and supplies, I mean, though let's not overlook the benefits of weightlifting. For a limited time, Groupon is offering a 1-year Costco Gold Star membership for $60 -- a price that includes $80 in shopping credit.
That credit takes two forms. First, after completing your membership sign-up (which requires opting into auto-renewal, though you don't have to continue beyond the first year), you'll receive a $40 Costco gift card that's good for anything, including gas. So now your membership cost is really $20.
You'll also get a coupon good for $40 off any Costco.com purchase of $250 or more -- something that might be a little more challenging to use. If it works out for you, great; you end up making $20 on this deal. If not, well, a year of Costco for $20 is nothing to sneeze at.
And there's a way to make this deal even better: Start at cash-back service TopCashback, which is currently offering 10% rebates on Groupon purchases. That means $6 back in your pocket -- not a fortune, but as with all cash-back options, it adds up.
This is, of course, for new Costco memberships only; you can't use this deal to extend an existing membership. But if you were a member prior to April 1, you can still take advantage.
