Costco and Southwest have been partnering together on gift card sales for the past year or so.  The deals have been anywhere between 10% and 20% off of the face value of $500 per gift card.  Today and tomorrow (March 10th, 2024) they’re offering a discount of at least 14% for everyone and slightly higher if you’re a Costco member.  It’s a lesser known factoid that you can buy items from Costco’s website even if you don’t have a Costco membership, but the extra $20

You can buy up to 5 of these $500 gift cards for $429.99 apiece.  And, you can tack on up to another 4% savings (roughly $17) per card if you’re a Costco Executive member using the Citi Costco Card.  It’s a 2% discount for Executive Members and an additional 2% if you charge the purchase on your Citi Costco Card.  Those discounts are on the $429.99 price, which means a total discount of about 17.5%.

The Final Two Pennies

If travel is your jam (it’s definitely mine) miles and points are a big part of making that happen.  But, points and miles are really just another form of currency.  Discounted gift cards are another part of that strategy.  Even if you don’t have a specific need for Southwest gift cards today, they can take you to plenty of places (including Hawaii and the Caribbean).  And, the gift cards don’t expire.  With a limit of five gift cards, this can be a good time to stock up for your next vacation.
