costco eshop card for buying tires?

what are the terms and condisiotns on the costco eShop cards for buying tires. for example right now michelin tires gets an eShop card. it says it will be delivered to your emaill address in 7-10 business days but no other details

Is this one of those things that can only be used online and for purchases of more than $250? or is it a straight up costco gift card? and can it be used in store?

Any thoughts appreciated.

No I believe it's just a e-Cash Card. You can print it out and use it in the warehouse since it has a barcode for scanning.

It's not a promotion card, no minimum purchase required. Same as a gift card.

That's what I got for buying tires since they no-longer discount the manufacturer rebates from the purchase price.

Appreciate the replies. I couldn't find any information on the 7-10 business days before getting it. Looks like I won't get it in time to use on the executive deals sadly.

You'll get the card much quicker if you order the tires in store. Usually within 24 hours.
