Apart from what is said to be the best hot dogs and delicious food samples, shopping at Costco offers many benefits most people are not aware of. Granted there is an annual membership fee but the cost is little in comparison to all the benefits you could utilize.
1. Medical insurance
If you are looking for a new medical insurance policy or you do not have one, Costco could be the solution. Costco offers affordable rates for members with both personal and small business plans. It is important however to read the insurance plan, be diligent about the details just to ensure that Costco’s coverage is what you need or are looking for. Medical insurance should always meet your needs.
2. Free Health Screenings
As we are on the topic of health, did you know that Costco offers free health checkups through their pharmacy department? Screening for diseases such as diabetes and osteoporosis is possible. Call your local Costco today and find out when the health checkups are available or check their local website.
3. Budget Eyewear and Group Vision Plans
Costco offers good deals on reading glasses that are quickly out of stock. The small investment of the annual fee is worth it to acquire reading glasses at good discounts. In addition, it also offers group vision plans.
4. Discount movie tickets & gift cards
Today it seems as if going to the movies is a small fortune. When you take into account drinks, popcorns and the movie tickets, we have spent a lot. Worry not, Costco offers discounted movie tickets. Summer is here and so are the summer blockbusters. Stock up on these discounted tickets and have a cinematic summer. With these discounted tickets, you will save an average of 25%. The discount also goes for gift cards so more good news.
5. Awesome Prices on Birthday Cakes
Costco’s bakery has some awesome deals that you should not miss. If there is a birthday coming up and you need a big cake, Costco should be the first place you look. I confess that Costco’s cakes taste as good as other expensive cakes I have had before.
6. Ink cartridge refills
I have saved one of the best benefits for last. Costco refills inkjet cartridges. All you have to do is bring in your old ink cartridges and make savings of up to 70% in comparison to buying a new one. While saving money, you are also reducing the amount of waste that goes into landfills.
