No, I didn't. There are no Costcos near me. However, I did use the $300 Electtek discount. I have only commuted with it for a few days now, but I am happy with the purchase.

This is one of the things that I notice I do differently on an e-bike. I am more likely to come to a full stop. It is just easier to get back up to speed.
