I found them, too

I just picked up one in Winston -Salem, NC.

Same as above - I paid 134.99 for it. I got one that expires at the end of 2013, so maybe it's an old one. I'd be upset, but I'll be using it before then, so it doesn't really matter too much.

I bought some in Atlanta yesterday and they expire in 2013 as well.
I called stores in Charlotte and Frederick Md and they all said their tickets expire in 2013.
I'll be using mine in January and July.

That's a great price, and cheaper than buying them with the current deal from Universal's website. Those tickets expire in June/13 so it will be worth the drive to Burlington VT to get them just for the extra 2.5 years to use the tickets!

I'll have my AP, but my husband will need park tickets. I was hoping to get him one of these, but when I checked with our local Costco yesterday, they said they no longer sold Universal tickets. They did last year, but haven't gotten any in for several months now.

I saw them in our Costco today for 134.99. I asked if I could get a price adjustment for the ones I bought before Christmas for 146.99 and they said to bring the receipt and tickets in. When I went back to Costco with the tickets, the Costco employee said the item numbers were different. She said I could return the old ones and buy the new ones. I went to buy the new ones and realized they expire this year instead of 2015 (I know it has been posted here already, but unfortunately I had not seen those postings). I went back to see if I could get my old tickets back, and they said they were no longer in the system and I would have to buy the new ones. I was a bit distressed because our plan was to use one day in a couple of weeks and then use two days next year or in 2015. Fortunately, I asked if they could just void my return and I could have my tickets back. They said the tickets had not been deactivated and they would just void the return. It took about 45 minutes of getting managers, but they were great.

It could have been a very costly mistake and it would have been all my fault, so I'm posting just to encourage people to carefully check the expiration dates. The new ones are not the same as the old ones (at least at our Costco)!

Glad they were able to switch them out for you!

I checked at my Costco today in IL and could not find them anywhere (didn't ask). I will check the location by my work next week. Hopefully, they just didn't make them to the floor yet.

I guess the short expiration is reflected in the price.

Right. I thought I was so smart going back to Costco to save $48 for about 10 minutes of effort - I figured it would buy us lunch at Universal. It ended up taking 45 minutes and I was grateful to have the opportunity to pay the higher price to get my tickets back!

Costco does have great customer service - they didn't have to let me have the tickets back.
