I got this in the mail yesterday.

It was $100/year for executive when we joined.. now it will be $120..The cash back from citibank is also being capped at $300 a year...

Is it still worth it ?

How much do you shop at Costco? What do you get as an 'executive'? Are you consistently hitting that Executive Reward Cap?

Bad news for my mother, who has an executive account. I never knew what benefits we received by being on this account. I'm assuming for her it won't be worth it as she is always trying to cut costs.

I will miss having a fancy looking card when she goes to a lower tier.

Probably. Unless you're already right at the edge of saving less than you pay in membership fee and never spend enough to really get much back in rewards, or you simply find that you actually seldom bother to shop there. If you do shop there pretty often, or feel you can find things there that aren't easy to find elsewhere, or are definitely more expensive to find elsewhere, then I wouldn't think the extra $20 would make much difference.

BTW, I've moved this to the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum.

I think it's already $110 for executive members so it's a $10 increase for the year. Gold stars members will not get any cash back less discounts on various products and service

as for benefits for executive members

- you get 2% cash back on your purchase at Costco, which will also stack with the citi credit card (so i'll get 6% back back for gas instead of 4%)

- you get more discounts on various products and services (check printing, buying a car, etc..)


I tried buying a car through Costco Auto program before. It's NOT THE BEST DEAL!!! DO NOT BUY A NEW CAR FROM COSTCO AUTO PROGRAM!! If you know how to negotiate, you can get $2000-$3000 LESS than what the dealer are offering you through Costco Auto Program!!
