If your idea of heaven involves bulk toilet paper, $1.50 hot dog/soda combos and two-pound jars of chocolate spread, listen up: There’s a way to shop at Costco without a membership.

Sure, you could skirt the membership through Instacart (and pay the hefty delivery fees), or you could use Costco gift cards, called Costco Cash.

The only catch? You’ll need someone who does have a membership (i.e., a friend or a lover) to purchase the gift cards for you—they’re available in amounts from $25 to $1,000. Once you’ve got that cold, hard Costco Cash, feel free to visit your closest location and shop to your heart’s content. (FYI, there’s a 5 percent surcharge if you want to redeem the card online.)

Bulk TP, here we come.
