We can’t think of a better gift than the “gift of savings.” If you’re already a member of Costco, you might consider getting your friends or family members in on all of the savings. When you purchase a one-year Gold Star gift membership for $55, the warehouse will give you a $10 Costco gift card. The gift membership is only valid for new members, so no renewals or upgrades allowed. You can either give the recipient the bonus to get started shopping those huge aisles or keep it for yourself. We like the latter. We’re advocates of warehouse shopping because of the savings. However, remember, it’s not a deal if you can’t use a gallon of mayonnaise — so shop wisely. The offer is only available in-store and runs through December 31.
