Costco have opened a new store in Wembley and as a incentive they are giving either a

£20 voucher for standard membership which costs £30(inc VAT)
or
£30 voucher for Excutive memberhip which costs £66(Inc VAT)

I think the standard membership has all the benefits without even getting the £20 voucher but as this offer goes the choice of standard still wins as for £10 annual membership compared to £36 after taking the voucher about off standard will be a winner if you are not a avid bulk stock buyer.

Costco offer high standard including many Organic products for consumption. The other departments are something else they can be commended for. We regularly purchase washing up liquid, bin bags cleaning products.

With one card the whole family can go in and enjoy choosing the product.

Today they will have special opening day Wembley only deals at the store so get there now.

I can't get there but for those who have gone may wish to share there experiences and post the deal of the day.

Bonus for regular or local residents will be that they have regular taster stall and if you time it right you can have a full tummy(For kids I was aiming at) by the time you come out. Well that on it's not bad for £10 for the whole year.

"The Executive membership also comes with some "special" coupons - I signed up at Wembley (for the regular rather than the Executive membership, so I don't actually have a copy of the coupons to post here), from what I remember there were about 12 coupons, including a free rotisserie chicken, free Kirkland 24-pack of batteries, £6 off any package of meat from the butcher area, and a few other things. I think around 4-6 of the coupons were for free products, and the rest for money off."

Another incentive of Exec membership is
"Costco's premium level of membership. All Executive members enjoy a 2% reward on most purchases."

Thanks to march and barmpot for their info on not for all....
Please check membership qualifying list before heading of as it is not for everyone.
Shame it's like feed the rich and save, but the poor can't save. Unless one is a family member...

Remember, despite the popular myth not "everyone" can get a membership .. there are qualifying requirements.

Where I used to work before, they used to set up booth and try sign up us for free. They sell in bulk. Most times we don't need items in bulk no cheaper than normal supermarkets. Apart from a occasional bargain, I never found their prices cheap and unless you have a very big family buying in bulk leads to waste and loss of storage space.

The Executive membership also comes with some "special" coupons - I signed up at Wembley (for the regular rather than the Executive membership, so I don't actually have a copy of the coupons to post here), from what I remember there were about 12 coupons, including a free rotisserie chicken, free Kirkland 24-pack of batteries, £6 off any package of meat from the butcher area, and a few other things.

True if you are single.
Alternative is to see if you can get some of your friends interested. Then share the things that you are all or some interested in. It might work out.

Nah, you forgot the magic word and its five years old. I went to this link after typing anyway.

Do you have brief list of Wembley only opening offers.

Do you have brief list of Wembley only opening offers.



No, they didn't have that available, I didn't even know they were having Wembley-only specials on opening day. I went down on Sunday, they were putting balloons up. The non-perishable stock (suitcases, printers etc) was already stacked up, at least from what I could see from the membership area. You couldn't enter the store itself, just the part with the membership/returns counters, food court (sadly not open yet), toilets etc.

One potential issue is that the location really isn't very good traffic-wise. You have to go down all kinds of side streets (especially to leave). I'm not sure how that will work out when it's packed. I can imagine it would be an absolute disaster on days when there's an event at the stadium.

Where does it say about the £20 voucher?

Sorry I should have included this link I found.

Nice

Just go in there and you can sign up. They are desperate for new members. They regularly come to
Harrow 2 shopping centres with half price deals that anyone can join in. This deal is better than that so make the most of it if this is near you.

They do like to portray its an "exclusive club" but in reality it is not as long as you pay membership costs.

the opening day offers were underwhelming - generally most things there are not bargains; the couple of things I can think of are the bulk food items can be good value (and quality) for entertaining, water softener salt tablets, and then things that are on special offer (e.g. today velvet 40 toilet rolls for £9.60 inc VAT is reasonable)

Of course, the kids had a field-day sampling all the stuff and leaving with a stash of jelly belly in their pockets, and the stuff on the olive counter isn't their standard range but there for a week only and is delicious

Worthwhile joining for the voucher (which had to be done BEFORE today when signing up) as £20 off purchase coupon (still to arrive in the post) for £24 business membership, I'm quids in with just a few bags of dishwasher salt

Yes I shudder to think of the traffic on an event day - it's literally on the doorstep of the stadium

I've been trying for years to "just turn up and join" and it doesn't work. I'm quite happy to pay the membership fee as well but i'm not part of any of the qualifying professions.

You must have been extremely lucky if you just walked in off the street and joined.

Sadly the nearest one to me is in Watford and I don't have a car so unlikely I would go there many times to
make use of the membership. My sis in law does have a card but belongs to one of the professionals in their
list so I just get her to buy bulk ketchup and afew other items for me.

Never been to store and bought membership but I have read people posting here that's what they
did and it worked. I guess depends on the store if they are being strict. But I do know they come to Harrow
and get people to sign up without being the professionals on their list.

Aha, so my point still stands then - you can't just wander in and sign up

I think you'll find that those people who randomly turn up in shopping centres with little costco stands sell costco subscriptions rather than actual membership. If you've got a subscription you can still shop at their website and save on the VAT but it's not a full warehouse membership.
