I like my Costco Amex. :smileyhappy:

I prefer shopping at Costco over shopping at Sam's.  I don't have either credit card.


I usually go to Costco. They sells better grocery. They let you to bring stuffs without asking any question.

Well then it doesn't matter who has the better rewards. For me it isn't worth it to me to drive a 150 miles to shop at costco no matter the rewards or service.


Costco is about 10 miles from my house. I think it is easier to get into the parking. I think the staff is better than Sams. Now we have to look into both cards. Which one has better product protection and other travel benefits.  Which customer service is better? Amex? Costco? What do you think?

the staff is better at costco because they make about double what Sams employees make... Sams gets couple more dollars than Walmart but they are the LARGEST SINGLE COMPANY WELFARE USER by the employees.

Thanks for the info. I didn't know that. I always feel Costco Employee treated me better because I am the usual cumstomer over there.  I bought some Costco stocks a few years ago. It make me some money. :smileyhappy:

Clearly, the Sam's Club MC is looking to go after the Costco Amex.   Which leads me to wonder if the Wally MC won't have as good of benefits as Sam's.   I hope it'll be as good.

If it doesn't, I may have to trade in my Wally for a Sams.

As would I.  It'd be a genius move on the part of Sam's Club.  I'd definitely get a membership to get those level of rewards.

You won't get cash back check if your cash back balance is lower than $5. It's still bad. It's like the old terms. You make sure to use your card enough to earn more than $5.00 a year.

Yes but the rewards aren't starting out tiered starting at .25%. The rewards are really awsome considering it's GECRB. I just hope Walmart rewards are close to the same.


I think GE or not this is a fantastic card. 3% on restaurants? 5% on Gas up to 6k a year? Seriously, this seems pretty dang competitive to me! :smileyvery-happy:

[ Edited ]

It's hilarious to me people are asking about the protections and whatnot. People have apped for LESS than what this is offering. There are not that many 3% restaurant cards out there, nor is there a plethora of 5% gas cards. Yes, Sallie Mae has it but it's capped at 250 per month. Yes, PenFed has it, but they are notoriously a very conservative lender. You can go on and on. This is a solid improvement on the previous card.
