Don’t fall for $75 Costco ‘anniversary’ coupon scam on Facebook

National News

(WJW/WNCN) – Costco is warning customers about a scam coupon making its way across social media.

In a post on Facebook Tuesday, Costco said the scam is a recurring hoax involving a fake $75 coupon.

The scam asks you to:

  • Share the Facebook post and complete several surveys, with links leading to websites not operated or sponsored by Costco
  • Enter personal details like your name, address and phone number
  • Sign up for “Reward Offers” by applying for a credit card or a paid subscription service

Anyone who completes the tasks listed above is eligible for the “anniversary” coupon.

Unfortunately for customers, Costco has confirmed it is not giving away any $75 coupons.

The company posted to Facebook saying:

“While we love our fans and our members, this offer is a SCAM, and in no way affiliated with Costco. Thanks to our fans for letting us know about this recurring hoax!”
