— Think a $75 coupon at Costco sounds too good to be true? You're right.
⚠️ Scam alert! ⚠️ https://t.co/NUe6XzxD7J— snopes.com (@snopes) November 13, 2019
According to Snopes, a scam making the rounds on Facebook falsely claims that the warehouse club is giving away $75 vouchers for the chain's 50th anniversary. Clicking the link sends users down a dangerous rabbit hole of suspicious websites, surveys requesting personal information and prompts to apply for credit cards or services, the outlet reported.
The chain took to its official Facebook page Tuesday to set the record straight.
"Despite several posts out there, Costco is NOT giving away $75 coupons," the post read. "While we love our fans and our members, this offer is a SCAM, and in no way affiliated with Costco. Thanks to our fans for letting us know about this recurring hoax!"
