With the arrival of February credit card statements (which come in the month of March), those who have the Costco Amex card will be receiving their rebate checks. Many people believe that these checks can only be redeemed for merchandise at Costco, but this is not true. Here's how the redemption form reads:
Annual Reward Coupon from American Express may be redeemed for goods, services, cash, check or Costco cash card at Costco Warehouses.
Notice that "cash" is one of the choices? ;-)
This is the route we will be going -- getting cash for our reward. Last year our check was pretty small since we only had the card for part of the year, so we simply spent it on merchandise. But this year we got a healthy amount back from it, so we'll be taking the cash!!!
I'm guessing that we simply go to the customer service desk and ask for the cash. Does anyone know for sure? Anyone ever redeemed their Costco Amex reward for cash?
