RE:     New Member Benefit Costco

SUMMARY:  NTEU and Costco have teamed up as a part of Costco’s National Membership Program to offer a terrific new member-only benefit to NTEU members.

    I am very pleased to announce a new member-only benefit that is now available to NTEU members. NTEU and Costco have partnered to provide NTEU members with the opportunity to join Costco and their 64 million worldwide members. In joining Costco, NTEU members will receive coupons for free products including a free rotisserie chicken, a free two-pound bag of coffee, one free case of Kirkland Signature spring or drinking water, 35/16.9 oz., and more. The coupons for these free products and other great savings are valued at more than $50. 

    When NTEU members join Costco as an Executive Member, they receive an annual 2% cash back reward (up to $750) on qualifying purchases.

    Existing Costco members also get some benefits by having access to some exclusive offers such as:

  • Costco Optical – $25 off when you purchase two sets of prescription eye glasses. 
  • True Earnings Card – Apply for the True Earnings Card from American Express, or sign up for renewal of your Costco membership on your existing American Express Card and get two additional months of Costco membership free. 
  • Refer a Friend – Introduce a friend to the many benefits of a Costco membership and each of you will receive a $10 Costco cash card. When a friends signs up for a Costco membership and their membership is activated, each of you will receive a $10 Costco cash card.
