Time taken to post you won't renew = time to renew.

Just sayin'

I wish they would show online how much your executive membership has earned you without actually having to call them.

Thankfully my membership expires this month anyway, so I needed to renew. Still let me at $55. Thanks for the heads up, OP!

Anything before November 1st qualifies.

I am sure most of you know this already. This is a friendly reminder that Costco is increasing their membership fees. If you renew before June 1st you can save some moolah.

According to Slick Deals, you can renew your membership up to 3 months early online and 5 months in store. This means if your membership is due before November 1st, you can qualify for the current price WITHOUT losing any months (despite what some posters are saying).
Hmmm... The date on the back of my card is Nov. 1, 2013. Is that the date of issue? If so, does that mean I still qualify, as my card expires October 31?

Log on with your account at costco.ca. It will say what it is.

As long as the price of the hot dogs doesn't go up!
pro tip: walking into the exit towards the food area they rarely check membership. If they do just say you're renewing at the desk and head for the food court where they do not validate membership on food purchases.
I have a local Costco is beside a movie theatre and the cheap food court is pretty awesome before a movie. I am a Costco member but I alternate years when to keep it active A massive final stockpile of stuff can easily last 6-12 months before needing to renew.

wish we could renew every other year
Costco's travel section (rental care rates are the best, IMO) and the gas station prices are the reasons we will keep our annual membership

I just logged on to their website. I am being offered the old price to renew.
My apologies. I found my till receipt and was charge the old price. My renewal reminder came in the mail a few weeks ago and indicated the new price. I assumed that was the price I was charged.

The Tom Brady model?

I thought TB was driving about in an R8.

In any event, it's the Prince Charles model. Oozes British class and sophistication.
deleted to keep the site family friendly. Was about copping sick fadez.
Well there's no sick fadez left to be copped now that the regimen cannot be admired in all its glory
RIP sick fadez.
