Costco Gift Card Balance

By April 7, 2022April 14th, 2022No Comments

Costco has pretty much got it all. From 20-lb cases of nuts to patio furniture to coffins, you can buy anything from this retailer behemoth. Costco sells a number of loss leader items (items where they actually lose money) to drive foot traffic.

And when it comes to gas prices, Costco can’t be beat. Costco always has the lowest gas price legally allowed by state laws.

In fact, some people join Costco for just the gas prices. The savings on gas alone can pay for a membership within a few months.

This makes a Costco gift card an incredibly popular gift item. And if you have a Costco gift card, you can shop in a Costco store without a membership.
