Known for its amazing food court and items in bulk, Costco is a value shopper’s go-to — even when it comes to cars.
Their reputation for competitive prices doesn’t stop at their pizza slices. This summer, from now until August 2, 2021, Costco’s Auto Program offers their members special savings on specific models. With Chevrolet and Volvo, members can save up to $2,000 on cars like the Chevrolet’s Bolt EV or Volvo’s XC60.
A little extra cash in your budget will go a long way to help fund that family vacation or other summer plans in the works.
Just How Does The Costco Auto Program Work — And Is It Worth It?
There are no Costco car lots – not yet anyway. Instead, Costco partners with local dealerships to set competitive prices through their Costco Auto Program. To use Costco Auto Program, all you have to do is purchase a yearly membership at the store. At roughly $60 annually, the membership pays for itself in the long run. Especially if you choose to purchase a vehicle through Costco — not to mention the bulk deals on toilet paper.
No haggling is involved and Costco often partners with manufacturers to grab special pricing on vehicles.
