The company debunked the coupon scam that promised users $ 75 off the purchase at the wholesale warehouse.
"While we love our fans and members, this offer is a scam, and in no way affiliated with Costco," the company said.
The fake offer appeared on Facebook earlier this year, asking users to click on a link that is not affiliated with Costco to collect their $ 75 coupon. To access it, users must share the post on Facebook and post some personal information.
Debunking the fake coupon has become something of an annual tradition: One year ago, the same day, Costco gave essentially the same statement, even though that year ran the scam under the guise of the company's 50th anniversary (it wasn't ).
Costco shares legit deals on its website and does not accept coupons not issued by Costco. So if you have to share a suspicious amount of personal information or post the coupon on social media to get the offer, it probably isn't real.
