Costco warns of fake coupon 'scam' circulating on social media

No Costco isn’t giving $75 coupons away

Users were instructed to click particular links, which brought people to web pages not operated or sponsored by Costco, according to Snopes.com.

St. Cloud area Costco shoppers thought they were in for a treat when a $75 dollar coupon popped up on social media Tuesday, but the company says it's not real.

The fake coupon, much like the one below, has been a recurring problem for the retailer.

Costco is warning of a scam circulating online.

Some savvy members chimed in saying that they knew the offer was too good to be true.

If you receive a communication that looks like it is from Costco, check to see who sent it.

Disney+ is having some 'unable to connect issues' at launch
If you subscribe to Disney + and Hulu separately, you're paying $12.98, so for a penny more you can bundle it and get ESPN +. The app divides the content into five main categories, Disney , Pixar , Marvel , Star Wars and National Geographic.

Another person even called out the fake coupon for its misuse of basic grammar rules. Do not do it, Costco says.

The post said they are not giving away the vouchers.

"Why does anyone beleive [sic] this stuff?"

In a Facebook post, the mega-warehouse chain said posts showing a $75 coupon to Costco are a scam and not affiliated with the company.

Although this deal turned out to be a scam, members do receive exclusive coupon books with additional weekly savings and promotions.
