In a recent TikTok video, the top five advantages of a Costco card were highlighted, urging viewers to seize these often overlooked perks. One of the standout benefits highlighted in the video is Costco's incredible deals on "gift cards." Viewers were encouraged to take advantage of substantial discounts of up to 30% on gift cards for local pizza shops, ice cream parlors, and popular restaurants. This means regular savings on dining out or when purchasing gifts.

The video emphasized Costco's competitive gas prices as another major perk. "Costco's gas stations offer some of the lowest prices around, often undercutting nearby gas stations by significant margins—up to 90 cents per gallon," according to the video. For travelers, "Costco's travel services were spotlighted as a valuable resource." The platform offers attractive vacation packages to various destinations along with unbeatable deals on cruises. Notably, "Costco's rental car rates were touted as consistently lower than those found on other online booking platforms."

Pet owners were also urged to consider Costco for pet insurance, known for offering some of the best rates in the market. This can translate to substantial savings for those who value their furry family members. "The video showcased the humble yet popular Costco hot dog, priced at just $1.50." Families often make a Saturday tradition of stopping at Costco for this budget-friendly meal alongside other treats like pizza, adding to the overall value of their Costco membership. These lesser-known benefits, if utilized effectively, can help members not only cover the cost of their membership but potentially save hundreds or even thousands of dollars annually. "If you have a Costco card and haven't explored these avenues yet, you could be missing out on significant opportunities to maximize your Costco membership and save money on everyday expenses," per the video.

@Sports Crazy said, "Gas worth the membership alone" and meanwhile @Ravi Wadan (Finance Education) said, "This is very true! Just getting your gas makes the membership worth it." @eriksadventures said, "Costco Citi card is $120 and includes a membership. 4% cash back on gas earns me more than the membership costs every year," @Ravi Wadan (Finance Education) said, "Haha."
