You may think a Costco membership is only worth it if you have a lot of extra space to store bulk items or if you throw a few giant house parties every year. But there are some perks to paying that annual membership fee that don’t involve a 12-pack of paper towels or a 3 liter bottle of olive oil.
There are two levels of Costco membership: The Gold Star or Business annual fee is $60 and the Gold Star Executive or Business Executive is $120.
The Executive level gets you additional benefits like 2 percent rewards on some of your Costco purchases as well as extra discounts or benefits. Either the basic membership or the executive membership lets you save money, but in addition to the lower prices you can find some really great perks.
