01/01/2017 UPDATE – WINNER ANNOUNCED: Congratulations to Daniel Bod, winner of our December 2016 Share to Win contest. A $25 Costco cash card is on its way to Daniel. Thanks to all that participated. Stay tuned for more contests and incentives in the future. Happy New Year everyone!

Calling all Costco-holics: we need your help!

In order for our humble site to be the most helpful to you and the rest of the Costco fanatics out there who are looking for the best deals possible, we need you to share the $x.97 deals you find at your local Costco stores. This is, after all, a community driven site.  Help others in your area score great deals by posting the hidden gems you find on your next trip to Costco.  It only takes a few minutes to share a deal.

To sweeten the pot (OK, you can call it a bribe), we’re running a contest the month of December.  The person whose post(s) is the most popular – which we’re measuring by unique page views – will win a $25 Costco Cash Card. Each view counts as one popularity point.  If you share more than one deal to this site, we’ll add the total page views (popularity points) of all your submissions together.*  So it’s possible you could win if you have one really popular post that gets 1000+ views (perhaps you’re lucky enough for it to make the front page on Slickdeals somehow) or if you submit 5 different deals that get just 200 views each. It’s up to you how you want to play it.

But wait, there’s more! You will earn 25 extra popularity points for every Facebook Like generated by your posted deal(s) and 25 extra points for every unique Retweet of your deal(s) on Twitter.* Only Likes and Retweets of the original post on the official Costco97 Facebook and Twitter accounts will be tracked. As soon as your deal is approved and published on this site (yes, we review each and every one), it will immediately be posted to Facebook and Twitter, where you can instantly share them with your friends & followers.

In order for your posted deals to be tracked properly, you’ll need to create an account and then post your deals from that account.

So, get on your marks, get set, and start posting! This contest begins now.


*OK, here’s the fine print: Please don’t try to game the system in any way. We will disqualify you if we suspect any monkey business! (We have our ways, so please don’t try it.) This is meant to bring some fun, a nice prize, and a lot of extra deals posted to the site. In this way, everyone wins, really. In the end, we reserve the right to award the $25 Costco Cash Card to whomever didn’t cheat. As we’re issuing either a $25 USD or CAD Cash Card (depending on what country the winner resides in), only page views generated in the USA & Canada will be counted.  Only the first deal posted for a specific Costco Item Number will be accepted and published on this site – so the sooner you post the better. We’ll notify the winner via email and we’ll also update this article with the winner’s username on or after January 2nd. All posts and their associated activity (i.e. popularity points) will be tracked through midnight (PST) December 31, 2016.  As with the rest of this site, this contest is neither affiliated nor endorsed by Costco Wholesale Corporation.
