Costco Just Expanded This New Member Perk Once Again
From health services and gas deals to discounted travel packages and an iconic food court, Costco boasts a range of benefits for its members beyond the typical retail offerings. And now, customers will have access to a perk with expanded benefits.
Recently, the warehouse's online buying program, Costco Next, which provides shoppers with curated lists of discounted products from top suppliers, has added three new vendors to its roster. This includes skincare brand boscia, ceramic ware company Fitz & Floyd, and art pieces from Disney by Dowdle.
Costco Next was launched in 2017, but it wasn't until December of 2021 that the members-only retailer ramped up the program's product selection. Now, shoppers can save at least 20% on goods from 40 vendors, with items ranging from clothing and beauty products to kitchenware, camping gear, and water sport accessories. The full list of suppliers can be found here.
To purchase a product from the list, Costco members can select their desired vendor, which will prompt them to enter their first and last name, along with their membership number. Then, they can click on the "Visit Supplier" button, which will take them directly to the vendor's website where they can start to shop. Members will also be able to view and access their exclusive Costco member pricing.
According to the Costco Next website, "This innovative approach helps us achieve our goal of bringing a broader selection of goods to our members, while increasing the value of the Costco membership."
However, it's important to note that Costco does not carry inventory for Costco Next suppliers. All items will be purchased directly from the Costco Next vendor, who will manage the shipping, customer service, and returns.
