Costco ALMOST got me to bite today......

Since Sams will accept AMEX and my gameplan is to run all my regular expenses through my AMEX chatge card I decided to pick up a Costco membership today. Pretty cool that the executive membership can earn 2% cash back!

 

Well anyway the rep. was pushing that True Earnings AMEX HARD on me. Had to say no like 10 times!!! I like my relationship with AMEX currently and I wouldn't want any bad things *cough FR cough* coming my way.

 

I did good today!! :smileyhappy:

 

My garden is full of seeds that are either growing or just blooming, no more room for new ones!!!

Re: Costco ALMOST got me to bite today......

I've always found it interesting that you can order from SamsClub.com & use your AMEX, but not in the store. You can buy Walmart shopping cards in-store, pay with AMEX (earn membership rewards) & use dually at Sam's Club online/in-store. I don't know if it's the swipe fee they're avoiding or what, but that's how I've gotten around using my Anex green. Someday maybe the True Earnings Costco card for me, but I'd have to drive 20 miles to the nearest location & gas is $3.65/gallon regular.

They have exclusive deals with each other.

 

Sams is exclusive with Discover. You cannot use a Visa CC only debit card. You can use MC.

 

Costco is AMEX exclusive. Correct me if im wrong here guys can you use VISA/MC there?
