*** UPDATE ***

So I called their central customer service line, and they said it's for the "selected" expired membership. Obviously, their marketing words are misleading.

However, I also note that I opted out of their email mailing list, so it probably explains why I didn't get the email. They can't re-issue the code, so there was nothing they could do over the phone.

They suggested that I walk into a local warehouse and mention the awareness code, and it's up to them whether to honor that or still require the "unique" promo code.

So I went to my local warehouse in Vancouver this afternoon and mentioned the awareness code, and they had NO issue applying that to get me the respective vouchers that are going to be emailed to me.

With regard to the vague insertion of the "new member" eligibility, I don't think it's heavily imposed.

As long as they punch in the awareness code, they don't even need to punch in the "unique" promo code. Their internal system takes care of it,

HOWEVER, it sounded like from time to time there is an investigation from the HQ to check whether the membership application has been processed properly, so it's up to the employee at the membership counter how they would scrutinize the terms and conditions of the offer.

Good luck!

Does it stack with referral? Saw that in store if you refer someone both get $25/$50 GC depending on the membership.

The title is misleading, it’s almost click bait. Put new member sign-up in the title.

Since over 18 months has passed, I would guess they could assist you in a warehouse.

The people in my local Costco are far from being friendly. Honestly, if I have to go to the warehouse to put up with their attitude I rather not renewing my membership.

From the fine print on the footer of the page:
"This offer is for new members or memberships that have been expired for more than 18 months"

I guess if you're current, and due for renewal, it doesn't work...
