The post earlier today concerned a special promotion to receive 2 months of Costco Membership free.
Today, I went to Costco and tried to use the promo. They informed me that, since I already had a membership (even though it had lapsed), I was not eligible for the “2-Month-Free” promo.
However, Marisol, the helpful Costco employee, offered me a $10 Costco cash card if I renewed. Hmmmm…. I said yes. Then, she said that the one year membership would run through June 30, 2013. I then remembered that, at Costco, when you join, the one-year membership is good through the last day of the month you register. I then begged Marisol to begin my renewed membership as of July 1, 2012. She reluctantly agreed (probably to get rid of me) and so, instead of the above promo, I got 13 months for $55 ($59 including tax) and a $10 Costco cash card. Not bad.
Also, by coincidence, a fellow blogger, Scott at “Hack My Trip” wrote a post today about Costco. Its titled Costco as the Traveler’s Secret Weapon, and it contains some valuable information regarding use of Costco for travel.
