Is a Costco executive membership worth it? A friend recently shared that he upgraded his regular $50 Costco membership to the $100 Executive plan, which immediately made me wonder how much money he will have to spend to make his yearly fee back.

There are also membership perks for check printing, auto financing, and long-distance phone service. The rebates are valid on future Costco expenses.
