Costco members saving on insurance
ELEVEN YEARS AGO, Costco formed
a relationship with Ameriprise Auto &
Home Insurance to offer auto, home,
condo and renters’ insurance to Costco
members. As part of this relationship,
Costco members receive an exclusive discount on their insurance premiums simply
for being a Costco member. Thanks to this
exclusive discount, Costco members have
saved more than $190 million by switching
to Ameriprise since the program began.
Here is one example of what members
are telling Costco.
“I want to share my recent experience of
shopping for Ameriprise Auto Insurance. My
current insurance (with another company)
was expiring on May 1, 2013. They sent me
my renewal bill for $1,623 for six months. At
Costco I had seen a flier and I emailed
Ameriprise and was surprised to get a quote
for the same coverage and a lower deduct-
ible for $938 for six months. It was a very
pleasant experience and you can do the
math on the savings. Highly recommend to
anyone.”—Raj B., Hesperia, California
Lower premiums without top-quality
service is certainly no bargain. Costco
chose Ameriprise Auto & Home Insurance
for its commitment to service as well as
savings. Costco members currently hold
more than 450,000 insurance policies with
Ameriprise Auto & Home Insurance.
It takes only a few minutes to see
what you could save with Costco’s exclusive auto and home insurance provider.

MANY COSTCO MEMBERS have already
discovered the world of great deals available
on Kawasaki motorcycles, including street
bikes, off-road motorcycles and power-sports
products, such as utility vehicles and personal
watercraft. Now that world is expanding.
The Costco Auto Program allows members to choose from a large selection of automobiles, and now motorcycle and
power-sports buyers can choose vehicles
from BMW, Honda, Suzuki and Polaris,
among other brands.
Call or visit Costco.com, click on
“Services,” then Costco Auto Program, and
indicate the type of vehicle and brand you are
interested in and you will be directed to a
participating dealer where you will receive
prearranged pricing exclusively for Costco
members and any national incentives that
may be available.
If you already own a motorcycle or
power-sports vehicle but are looking for
parts or accessories, you may be eligible
to receive a discount even if you didn’t
purchase that vehicle through the Costco
program, thanks to low, prearranged pricing
on all power-sports products.
