Reasons Why We Started Pumping Gas at Costco

gas at Costco
You are running to work or in a rush to pick up your kids from school and the worst, possible thing happens – your car is low on gas. Your tank is practically empty. Fueling up your car on gas is one of those things that become a chore you end up ignoring for as long as possible.
While it typically only takes a couple of minutes to do, there is the drive to the gas station and then the drive back home. After work, the last thing you want to do is stop for gas – you just want to go home and relax. With gas prices fluctuating what seems like every other second, the entire process becomes an unpleasant ordeal. However, there is a rainbow in the dark of all this:

Why we started getting gas at Costco

Costco

The one-stop warehouse for all your household needs, plus more. The warehouse offers four different types of membership, each with their own perks. From appliances to groceries and optical and pharmacy services, Costco has everything you need.

Kirkland Signature Gasoline

Possibly one of the best perks of having a Costco membership is access to their gasoline. Kirkland’s Signature Gasoline is “formulated with powerful deposit control additives” and ” significantly reduces harmful pre-existing deposit buildup on critical engine components. It contains five times the government standard for detergent additives”.
The price of gasoline is always fluctuating, and gas at Costco is typically 10 to 15 cents cheaper compared to competitor stations.
Kirkland’s Signature gasoline improves performance, restores fuel economy, reduces emissions, and projects fuel injectors and intake valves. Costco also prides itself in having a safe environment, making sure their fuel attendants are fully trained and pass a certification test prior to working at a fuel station.
Costco fuel stations feature the latest technologies for making sure gasoline vapor remains contained.
The fuel stations are also fully and conveniently equipped. There is one-way traffic and extra-long pump hoses allow people to fuel up from either side.
Perhaps one of the best things about fueling your car at a Costco fuel station is the cash back rewards system.
You can earn anywhere Visa is accepted.
You are able to earn cash back rewards on EVERY purchase! Click here to check out the Costco Anywhere Visa Card by Citi and the Costco Anywhere Visa Business Card by Citi. Costco members who go to the Costco fuel stations earn back 4% on eligible gas for the first $7,000 per year, and then 1% thereafter. They earn back 3% back on eligible travel and restaurants, 2% on other purchases made at a Costco warehouse and Costco.com, and 1% on all other purchases!
So if you are already a Costco member, you are most likely already using their fuel stations and taking advantage of the perks that come along with it! If you are a member and not fueling your car with Kirkland’s Signature gasoline, now is the time to try it out. If you are not a member yet, we recommend you highly consider becoming a member. It’s a one-stop-shop for all your household necessities, groceries, and more (like free samples)!
