eCost Opens Membership Program

Torrance-based eCost announced last week that it has added a new fee-based membership program to its lineup. The company's new Bargain Countdown Platinum Club features members-only pricing and carries a $29.95 annual fee. The company is hoping that customers will be attracted by discounted prices, priority telephone support, free software, and more. eCost provides new, close-out, and refurbished merchandise.
