Do you Have to be a Costco Member? 

  • No, you don’t have to be a member but you will pay a 5% surcharge. But even with the surcharge you will be saving money.  

Costco Gift Card Discount

WOTC Pro Tip: Anyone can shop Costco.com although there are a few hitches for nonmembers: 

  • You will pay an extra 5% surcharge but usually, you still get a deal.
  • You can not use it for “Member-Only” Savings” deals. 
  • If you spend less than $1,200 a year at Costco online it’s not worth purchasing a membership (you will just pay the 5% surcharge) but if you plan on spending more than $1,200 a year online it will save you money by going ahead a purchasing a membership. 


This tip can help you save money for yourself and is a great way to save money on gifts. Most of the gift cards come in smaller increments. For example, you can purchase (4) $15 gift cards to Krispy Kreme for $44.99 instead of paying the full $60. Everyone likes donuts. 

Here are some deals you might find on the Costco website: 

  • $449.99 for a $500 gift card to Southwest Airlines
