Costco just announced that they will now accept all Visa credit cards at every warehouse locations nationwide. So for those who felt like your #1 warehouse, Costco, has forsaken you... well they're hard at work trying to earn back the lost love. Also, by every Visa branded card, we mean, any Visa card at all, Visa credit and Visa debit cards. Not just limited to their recent roll out of the Costco Anywhere Citi Visa card.
On the other hand, additional cards accepted at Costco includes:
Costco.com accepts the following credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, the Costco Private Label card and the Costco Anywhere Visa® Card by Citi. Additionally, your bank and credit union's Visa card will also be accepted at Costco.
Hooray! As you may have guessed, this is likely due to the all the backlash they've received from the rocky transition from American Express True Earnings to their partnership with Citi Visa credit card. Since Costco announced Citi Visa live date, many have complained about the pains of activating their card and getting in contact with Citi Visa customer service. The aftermath? Well, some are still struggling, their wails are heard far and wide on the social media spheres, especially by competitor Sam's Club. Since then, Sam's Club has rolled out free entrance to all shoppers with a Costco card over the 4th of July, partnered with American Express to offer free membership and also jumped aboard the Pokémon Go bandwagon to offer all gameplayers free 1-day entrance to any Sam's Club warehouse. Did you visit Sam's Club via one of these offers?
