Costco Members Get Audi Employee Pricing, Saving Thousands Of Dollars

Costco members in the market for a new luxury vehicle can now save big money by purchasing through the newly launched Audi Sales Event. Whether you’re buying or leasing, there are significant discounts available on most models carrying the Four Rings, matching the discounts Audi employees benefit from. The promotion runs July 1 through September 30 and excludes the following models: A3, Q5, R8, and all the RS cars.

Operated by Affinity Auto Program, the Costco Auto Program can net you savings as high as $7,480 in the case of the E-Tron electric SUV. The discounts Costco members enjoy don’t exclude any applicable incentives Audi might have, so you could end up with even more cash in your pocket. Another relevant example is the A6 Sedan in the Premium 45 TFSI Quattro specification that takes off $5,490.

While the RS-badged cars and the mighty R8 are not included in the Audi Sales Event, you do get to pick from a variety of spicy S cars. In addition, we’re pleasantly surprised Costco members can get a TT through this program, saving as much as $4,550 before any applicable Audi incentives.

According to Costco, the most popular model requested by employees through the Costco Auto Program is the A4. We’ve browsed through the dedicated website for Costco Auto Program and discovered the 2020 Audi A4 45 TFSI Prestige is discounted by $4,995. There are savings to benefit from on a wide variety of A4-based models, including the rugged Allroad and the performance-oriented S4.

It’s safe to say the Costco Auto Program has been a great success taking into account members bought more than 600,000 cars last year. Aside from the Audi Sales Event, there’s a similar program available for Hondas, specifically the Pilot SUV and Odyssey minivan. It’s ending on July 6 and all eligible Costco members who purchase or lease a car also get a $500 Costco Shop Card.
