Costco is raising its membership fees

Post by VictoriaF » Sun Mar 05, 2017 8:18 pm

Starting on 1 June 2017, Costco membership fees will rise to $60 Regular / $120 Executive. Costco membership can be renewed up to 3 months in advance. Those with membership expiring before August, can renew before 1 June at the current rate. See https://www.doctorofcredit.com/costco-r ... -june-1st/ .

Thanks for the heads up. My membership renews in August so I can sneak in at the current rate.

Can you buy the membership gift card now and use it for renewal?

Actually you can:

Current Costco members may use the Gift of Membership to upgrade to Executive Membership or renew an existing membership.
