Costco is a great place to shop for stuff like food and wine, and the warehouse club occasionally has good deals on stuff of interest to gear heads. You can’t beat their prices for bulk shop towels and microfiber cloths, and they generally have decent pricing on Mobil 1 motor oil. I bought a “disposable” hydraulic jack there about 20 years ago, and it’s still going strong (even if it does weigh more than the center of the earth).
In fact, it’s not uncommon to wheel your cart-o’-crap to your car, then wonder how, exactly, you’re going to cram 100 cubic feet of purchases into 75 cubic feet of interior space. Now your worries are over, since you can just head back inside and order up a Chevy or GMC pickup or SUV.
While Costco won’t be stocking the General Motors trucks it sells, Autoweek says the warehouse club will offer members “preferred pricing” on certain models, generally equivalent to what manufacturers extend to supplier employees (but not the really good discounts they offer their own employees). Delivery will take place though designated new car dealers, but here’s the catch: the program will only run through January 3, 2012.
Just in case you need more incentive, Costco will throw in a $500 Costco Cash Card to anyone who buys a truck through the program. You can also use any available GM incentives and rebates, so if you’re in the market for a truck, Costco may be worth shopping.
