Did you get an email confirm after spending $25+ at Costco? I spent $25+ on Sunday but so far nothing. I signed up for the Sprout's Amex promo last time and got an email confirm right away after spending the specified amount on the card.
I haven't used this offer, but my experience with other offers is that they are inconsistent about sending the email confirmations. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. I received Cash Back even when there was no email confirmation.
People aren't getting email confirmations for some targeted offers like this Costco one and I think Amazon as well -- you should get the credit 2-3 days after the charge is fully posted to your account

Sheesh, modern journalism can be so lame, especially online articles. Most of the points on that list are just the opposite of the annoyingly teasing headline: most anyone with any sort familiarity with Costco already knows and realizes them, and are some of the biggest reasons why one shops there.
giantsfan2 said: For those who are not Costco members and who have no interest in purchasing a membership, like me, it seems there are three ways to take advantage of this offer:
1. Get a Costco gift card from a friend and put the remainder of the purchase on a Amex
2. Purchase items that don't require a membership such as liquor or pharmacy in some states
3. Buy a membership, make a purchase, and cancel the membership for a refund
Only 3 is guaranteed to work but it is not an approach I favor. In this thread and elsewhere on the Internet, I've seen mixed opinions about whether strategy 1 will work or not (note that you can definitely use cash or debit card in addition to the cash card but it doesn't help with this offer). I haven't seen anything regarding the success of 2. I will try 1 and 2 and report back although it won't be right away. Finally got around to trying this. The method was 1 since I used a Costco cash card although most of the purchase was liquor. I had no problems swiping my Amex card after swiping the cash card. The cashier didn't say anything. I didn't get an email from Amex but I'm not expecting any problems getting the credit. I've read about other people having problems with 1 so YMMV and good luck!
