Serving and retired members of the Police Force are eligible to become members of Costco Wholesale, which is a cash and carry membership club and is not open to the general public.
The benefits of a Costco membership not only include the great savings that can be made on a extensive range of products (we sell everything from dog food to diamonds at TRADE PRICES!) but also the truly unbeatable guarantees, whereby, if a member is not 100% happy with any product (including the membership itself) for any reason, within any reasonable period of time, they simply return to us for a full refund.
There are various categories of Membership, as below (prices as of 1st September 2016):
Standard Individual Membership(i) costs £33.60 per annum (including VAT). This gives two cards (i.e. Prime Member plus a "Spouse/Partner" Card) plus the facility to add one additional card holder at the cost of £16.80 each including VAT. NB Individual Members may not enter the Warehouse before midday from Monday to Friday.
Standard Trade Membership(ii) costs £26.40 per annum (including VAT) and, again, gives two cards (i.e. Prime Member plus a "Spouse/Partner" Card) plus the facility to add up to SIX additional card holders at the cost of £16.80 each including VAT.
Executive Individual Membership(i) costs £74.40 per annum (including VAT) and offers the same as Standard Individual BUT pays back 2% of the cost of all purchases per annum by way of a cheque at the end of the year. (Certain exclusions apply such as tobacco products, baby food, stamps etc.) NB Individual Executive Members may not enter the Warehouse before midday from Monday to Friday.
Executive Trade Membership(ii) costs £67.20 per annum (including VAT) and offers the same as Standard Trade BUT pays back 2% of the cost of all purchases per annum by way of a cheque at the end of the year. (Certain exclusions apply such as tobacco products, baby food, stamps etc.)
(i) Idividual membership will apply to the majority of Police Federation members
(ii) Trade membership is predominantly for those who are self employed but those “Managers” who have “Financial Responsibity” (i.e. are authorised to sign cheques on behalf of the Federation or Force or have final authority to pay invoices) would also qualify.
Additional Incentive RE: COVENTRY Costco
Any Federation members signing up for Costco Membership at the Coventry branch will receive a £10 shopping voucher for use at the Coventry Costco.
These vouchers are applicable until at least until August 2017.
Although once signed up, a Member will be a Member of any Costco throughout the World and the voucher is redeemable at any UK location, THE £10 SHOPPING VOUCHER OFFER IS ONLY AVAILABLE IN COSTCO COVENTRY
So, in order to beat the price increase and benefit from a free £10 Shopping Voucher, visit Costco Coventry and present your Police ID badge / warrant card together with a print out of these details.
