Costco Membership Fees Increase in June


ISSAQUAH, WA
Thursday, June 1st, 2017

This March, Costco Wholesale Corporation made headlines when it announced large-scale membership fee increases set to take effect this June. And starting Thursday June 1st, the company has implemented a five dollar hike in “primary” members’ annual fees and a ten dollar increase in executive membership fees.

Primary membership fees—including U.S. and Canada Goldstar members and business members—will rise from $55 to $60 and executive membership fees will jump from $110 to $120.

The Star Tribune reports that Costco tends to raise its membership every five or six years, and this latest hike—the first since 2011—is in keeping with that trend. Costco earns approximately $2.6 billion in membership fees each year—almost three-quarters of its operating income, the news source noted.

Fee increases are expected to impact 35 million Costco members—roughly half of the those effected being executive members.

Frugal Costco members can still save on the cost of renewal if they make their payments online or in store by August 1, the Star Tribune noted.
