The current phony coupon directs users to links to web pages that display a Bud Light logo along with messages to share the page and write "thank you" in the comment field, Snopes said.

The company took to Facebook to warn consumers about the fake coupon, saying, "While we love our fans and our members, this offer is a SCAM, and in no way affiliated with Costco".

It's not the first time Costco has debunked this scam.

According to Snopes, a self-described internet "fact-checking resource", the scam began circulating on Facebook to celebrate Costco's anniversary.

Customers shop at a Costco store in this December 12, 2018 file image in Chicago. Do not do it, Costco says. "Don't they know it's mean it is?!?!"

"Why does anyone beleive [sic] this stuff?"

Retail giant, Costco has announced that a $75 Costco coupon floating around on Facebook is a fake.

Although this deal turned out to be a scam, members do receive exclusive coupon books with additional weekly savings and promotions. So if you have to share a suspicious amount of personal information or post the coupon on social media to get the offer, it probably isn't real.
