    If you collect Aeroplan points, this may be a better deal:

    How picky are they about the “spouse” card? What sort of proof, if any, do they ask for?

    Miss Kitty 79:
    They ask for something ‘official’ with the spouses name on it, that is addressed with the same address as the Original member’s address.

    A driver’s license is the obvious choice, but in the event that the spouse does not have a license, then something as simple as a credit card statment or other bill in the spouse’s name, that is mailed to the same address works just as well.

    I don’t know how they prove it online, however. It may be that the membership (as all do) included a spousal card… but you may be required to visit the store to acquire it.

    Is a Costco membership really worth it? Do you actually save lots? I am seriously debating if I should get one!

  6. caroman says:

    @protectuer-you really need to decide this for yourself.some people save lots but others who are big time coupon users might not think it’s a good deal.can you tag along with someone just to check it out?

    If you buy tires and propane, and if you like their specialty meats and chesses, then it’s a good deal. They also have the special in house deals every month too, like Little Giant, etc. Probably worth it just for the Kirkland canned chicken breast that you can’t find anywhere else. Not worth it for general groceries, canned pop, chips, etc.

    I’ve been a member for almost 15 years, and this is the first time I’m contemplating whether to rejoin or not. As someone noted, if you watch the sales and use coupons properly, the deals blow away Costco in most cases. Yet if you buy a set of tires or can take advantage of one of more of their Executive Member benefits, than it is worth it. If you need tires though, it’s a no brainer. Oh, and if you use propane for the BBQ, the cheap price on that will pay for the membership in a summer.

    I am not always shopping at Costco. But when I want to buy something.I just ask my friend bought me their gift card then i can shop everything also. So may be a good way to save member fee.

    The meat at costco cannot be beat, even if just for the quality. I dont usually ever find a better price on food, and the fact that you cannot use coupons (or Visa to get points lol), sort of changes your mind on the whole thing.
    However, sometimes it really is quality over quantity. Most of their other “products (non food)” are very good quality and comparable prices to any major department store.
    Oh, recently though we have a liquor store at our costco. Again, the prices seemed very comparable to sale prices at other stores, except for the Kirkland brand liquor. SO CHEAP. Good way to stock up for summer parties and camping!

    My University daughter & I sign up as a couple. I live in a small town. They asked for id with same address. Worked for us 2x now as all her mail still comes to my house. I have two sisters that also sign up as a couple.

    JoJo – good idea but if you buy an item you are not sure you will keep or something with a warranty, keep your receipt. Costco cannot track cash card purchases for price so if you return something you get the current price only.

    How much savings would you get on tires?

  13. Why mess with Costco in the first place? I shop wholesale for my household consumables. My membership cost me $29 11 years ago and I have spent $16CDN/$12US to renew it each year. Right now, in March 2012 you can get a 1-year membership for only $1.00 (yep, that’s ONE DOLLAR). And you get Free products for 5 months for shopping every month, plus loyalty dollars to spend on more free stuff every month thereafter. Plus discounts for shopping online at other stores – the benefits are endless. Not to mention that this is a totally ‘green’ store so you’re eliminating the toxins from your home, reducing toxic waste in the environment, and improving your family’s health and safety. Request info at and I can show you how to set up your wholesale account. (Don’t worry, you don’t have to do a business, thought the business is a fun benefit!)
    Admittedly, if you need a lot of big ticket items like TVs or a ton of paper products (how much bathroom tissue can you use?) a membership might make sense, but I prefer shopping green for my normal household needs.
