About this Deal
|Costco is a members-only warehouse club, so members are expected to show their cards as they enter the store. There will usually be a couple employees standing at the entrance to check that only customers are entering, but what will happen if you show up without a card?|
Turns out if you're already a member but you just forgot or lost your card, you can head over to the membership department to get yourself either a new or temporary pass.
What happens if you show a card that doesn't belong to you? According to an employee, you could be asked if the cardholder is with you, or to wait for the cardholder before you can enter. If you just keep walking, the cashier will notice at check-out and call a supervisor to explain that membership is non-transferable.
While the warehouse will usually refuse to sell to non-members, management will sometimes cave if the customers throws a big enough fit. Then, the customer will be allowed to pay in cash or debit, followed by a firm warning.
