    These special tickets have been available in my local Costco for the last several years. Until now - they are all gone in Marietta, Georgia. Just when I needed to purchase more. Hopefully they will carry them again in the new year.

    I was just at my Costco and the Universal tickets are back!! I was so excited because I went to buy them right after Thanksgiving and they were gone. I was planning to buy some online for our trip in January. But when I went to buy Xmas dinner stuff I decided to check the gift card area again, and there they were!!!

    I don't know about the item numbers, old or new. But I did notice the cardboard thing that you take to the register looks different than before. But I think the tickets are the same. 3 days, both parks and city walk. Expires 12/2015

    I just looked at my receipt and I paid $134.99 for them. I am not sure if that was the price before or not.

    That sounds much lower than what they were before. I wonder if they are the same? Can you quote exactly what it says on the tickets? They used to be $145. Maybe they lowered the price while the buy 2 days, get 1 day free sale was on?

    I am out of town till tomorrow night and the tickets are at my house. But I will take a pic or type up what they say when I get home. The receipt happened to be in my purse, but the tickets are with our Disney stuff.

    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.:confused3
