Costco will practically pay you to get a membership

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - It's back and even better! Costco is offering an unbeatable deal on a Gold Star membership if you buy it through Groupon or Living Social. We saw the same deal last year from both websites.

Get a voucher for a one-year Gold Star Costco membership for $60 through the discount site Groupon, and you'll get so many perks your membership will more than pay for itself.

The deal is for new members only, you cannot use it to renew an existing membership.

According to the Groupon and Living Social deal pages, you'll receive:

  • A One-Year Costco Gold Star Membership, which includes: a membership card for the Primary Cardholder and one free Household Card for anyone over the age of 18 and living at the same address.
  • A $20 Costco Cash Card
  • Coupon for free Kirkland Signature AA Batteries 72 ct ($19.99 value)
  • Coupon for free Kirkland Signature Disinfecting Wipes Variety 4-Pack ($9.99 value)
  • Coupon for $10 off Fresh Meat (beef, chicken, pork, or fish; excludes deli items)
  • Coupon for $25 off an order of $250 on Costco.com

So, you could buy a $60 membership directly through Costco and get just the membership, or you could buy it through one of these sites and get all of the perks.

And the perks of being a member come in handy in San Diego. In addition to deals on travel packages, automobiles and service, and more, members can take advantage of special ticket deals for:

  • Legoland California: Two-day park and water park tickets for $99 each;
  • USS Midway Museum: Admission for two for $33; or
  • Belmont Park: Day passes for $28.
