Bought $25 Costco gift card from Costco.com and it posted on May 14 (no rebate back 3 days later) so I'm guessing you get a rebate only in-store. Do you think I should attempt only buying Costco cash/gift card or any gift card like Amazon may work too?

I bought a $120 Costco GC in store using the Citigold Mastercard + PIN. You can also purchase a $60 GC but not any other denominations since Citigold benefit is a subscription (in this case Costco membership) rebate. Online, you are unable to purchase $120 or $60 GCs so it won't work. I have not tried the gift of membership but remember reading somewhere that they are difficult to use.

can you buy both the $120 and $60 GC at the same time or different times and expect a rebate

I have not tried to purchase both denominations on the same day but I don't see why it wouldn't work as long as they are in separate transactions. But, if I were you, I would just buy them on different days for peace of mind. I bought two $120 GCs a week apart and received $120 and $80 rebates.

I also bought a $120 Costco GC in store using the Citigold Mastercard + PIN. No tax just a flat $120, was reimbursed a week later.

I renewed my membership in store, got $120 6 days later, my P2 bought a GC for $120, reimbursed 3 days later. Made 2 more $120 purchases each, still waiting, one tracker shows $200 used, another one just $120, but it's too early, since it's just posted.

Yes, you can't use MC in store without pin.

Very strange if I'm the only person not getting a rebate. Wondering if my local Costco is tagging this differently to Citi but that'll be strange as all costco's should use a standardized POS system

I think I figured out the problem. I never enrolled and didn't know you have to. Citigold guys sent me this link but there's no button to enroll in the rebate program - Citigold.citi.com/subscriptions

Does anybody have a working link?

Once you log in, I see an "activate" button. Just did this for my mom.

Has anybody bought a $120 and $60 Costco gift card on the same day and gotten the rebates? Asking about a different account that has been enrolled in the program for a while and still eligible for rebates

I signed up for CostCo and go thte $60 rebate. The other day I upgraded to Costco Gold Star Executive for $35 but I have't seen the rebate yet. I'm losing Citigold soon so want to know if they will rebate this. Thanks.
