COSTCO RECEIVED THE following
email from member Dienna Rogers of
Fountain Valley, California, reprinted with
After months of shopping for a new car,
I had finally decided to go with a 2015
Hyundai Genesis and remembered that
Costco has an auto program to help with car
purchases. After I submitted my information to Costco (I was impressed with how
easy it was!), I had gotten an email from a
Hyundai dealership in Anaheim, California,
and made an appointment to see them. At
the same time, I had found out that a friend
of a friend works at a Hyundai Corporate
office and could help me with a Friends and
Family Discount program. I had submitted
my info to this friend at Hyundai Corporate
and she sent me a discount certificate of
$1,560. I took the certificate to the dealership, and when I showed them the certificate, he told me I would be getting a discount
of $1,900 using Costco’s discount! I was
astonished and amazed at how much more
savings I got from Costco versus Hyundai
Corporate! Needless to say, I went with the
Costco discount and I’m happy to report
that I’m loving my new Genesis and loving
the savings I got. Thank you, Costco!!!

THE LIABILITY SHIFT from payment card
processors to merchants is only three months
away—and many businesses have yet to
upgrade their processing systems. Elavon,
AMERIPRISE AUTO & Home insurance, a
Costco Services provider, wants you to be
aware that each summer there are horrific stories about children and pets being left in hot,
locked cars. According to kidsandcars.org, 38
children die in hot cars each year. One is too
many. The numbers are higher for pets, with
hundreds dying each year, according to the
American Veterinary Medical Association.
The excuses are the same. “I was just going

to be a minute.” “I left the windows open.” But
on a hot day, a car becomes a virtual oven and
cracking the windows doesn’t help.
Costco member Jan Null, a San Francisco–
area meteorologist ( noheatstroke.org) created
the chart below.
Follow these tips to avoid a tragedy
● Never leave kids or animals alone in a
car—even for a minute.
● Always check the front and back seat of
the car before leaving the vehicle.
● Place your purse or briefcase in the back
seat to help you remember to check.
● Always lock your car and be sure kids
don’t have access to the car keys or remote
● Check the car and trunk right away if
your child or pet is missing.
● Immediately call 911 if you see a child
or pet left unattended in a hot car.
