2% back on all your purchases...but you have to shop there obviously.

I have to keep the membership active for credit card processing through Costco NOVA.

You can also sign up for the normal business membership which is like Gold Star.

Basically a business membership allows you to purchase stuff for you, your business and for resale. A normal gold star membership does not allow you to resell products (though how they would differentiate is a different story).

Great home phone and internet services too for exec members, plus you get a spousal card for free, as the son of the member I was able to get an exec membership as well for less than half the price.

A costco membership is absolutely worth it if you have a car and live close to a Costco store. It is especially handy for party planning and get together events when you are not sure what to bring (or don't have time to make something). Most things are much cheaper at Costco and they have some items I haven't seen outside of Costco. If you do not have a big family to share all the goods with, you can always split the bulk items and it will still save you $.

When you show up to the cash register with 30 cases of pop and water, I think they know you're reselling. :lol:
