Costco doesn’t offer a senior discount or a lower-priced senior membership.
We contacted Costco stores in Arizona, Georgia, New York, and Maryland to verify this information. All locations confirmed that there are no senior discounts for membership fees, products, or services at Costco.
Other Ways to Save at Costco
While it doesn’t offer a senior discount or discounted memberships, Costco does offer a membership promotion for military members and veterans.
New members who can verify their military or veteran status are eligible to receive a $30 Costco Shop Card in the mail after registration.
Costco also has rotating deals on the products in its warehouses. You can see the warehouse savings section of the Costco website to stay up to date on the current promotions.
Additionally, Costco offers a personal credit card — the Costco Anywhere Visa Card — that allows cardholders to get cash back on gas, restaurant, and travel purchases, as well as purchases from Costco and Costco.com.
Senior Shopping Hours
While most Costco warehouse locations in the U.S. open at 10 a.m., the company currently offers senior shopping hours from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Tuesday and Thursday.
Some locations have other special hours — for example, some begin the senior shopping hour at 8 a.m. or 8:30 a.m.
These shopping times are available to members aged 60 and older.
