There are always ways to boost your savings at Costco. And then there are those promotions involving free Costco gift cards that come along only once in a blue moon.

So, take note, Costco shoppers: One of those promotions is going on right now — although you must shop by Sept. 27 to take advantage of it.

If you spend at least $100 on certain products from Procter & Gamble brands, you will get a free $25 Costco gift card, which the retailer refers to as a Costco Shop Card. And you can do this twice over — for a total of $50 in free Costco gift cards.

The only hitch is that you must be a Costco member to get in on this freebie. If you aren’t a member but have considered joining, check out this special Costco membership promotion that nets you a free $10 Costco gift card.

How to get a free $25 Costco gift card this month

Costco members can take advantage of the current offer for a free $25 Costco gift card by buying $100 worth of eligible products at a Costco warehouse or from Costco’s website until Sept. 27.

The eligible products include those from brands like:

  • Cascade
  • Crest
  • Dawn
  • Downy
  • Febreze
  • Gillette
  • Head & Shoulders
  • Metamucil
  • Swiffer
  • Tide

Note that the eligible items you buy must total at least $100 after accounting for discounts and before applying taxes.

To redeem your free Costco gift card, you must submit proof of your purchases. You can submit your receipts online or by mail.

Visit the special website for this promotion, GetPGoffer.com, to submit photos of your receipts by Oct. 30 at 11:59 p.m. PST. Or, print out the form available on that website and snail-mail the form and copies of your receipts to the address on the form, postmarked by Oct. 30.

You will receive your free Costco gift card within two weeks if you submit your receipts online or within four weeks if you submit them by mail.

How to make the most of the P&G offer

Note that each household can receive two $25 Costco Cash Cards, according to the P&G offer website’s FAQ page. So, if you have enough extra storage space at home to stock up on $200 worth of eligible products, you could net yourself $50 in free Costco gift cards.

It’s not like any of the eligible items are perishable foods, and Costco Shop Cards do not expire. So, you have little to lose by stocking up on eligible items so you can double up on free gift cards.

Another way to make the most of this promotion is to buy eligible items that happen to be on sale at Costco right now — which is more than a dozen items.

All eligible products are listed on Costco’s “Get P&G Offer” webpage. From there, you can identify those that happen to be on sale this month by looking for the words “after $X off” next to the product price.

Yes, Costco has sales. As we explain in “11 Ways to Save Even More Money at Costco“:

“Costco offers periodic discounts — on top of its already low prices. The retailer refers to them as “warehouse savings,” but they are essentially sales. Costco offers a new batch of warehouse savings roughly once a month. So, always check out the retailer’s Warehouse Savings webpage before driving to your local club or buying anything online.”
