Costco Anywhere Visa Citi card Approval

Hey everyone. Smiley Happy

 

Just got approved for Costco Anywhere Visa Citi card for a SCL of $5,500 - plenty to start with!  Doing my happy dance! Smiley Happy

 

Something that may be worth noting for others considering this card, the approval states that you must keep your Costco membership active.  If you don't they can cancel the card.  Also wanted to mention that technically, you don't have to wait for your card to arrive to you.  You can go to Costco and they will give you a temporary credit card - nice touch on Costco/Citi's part.

Re: Costco Anywhere Visa Citi card Approval

I just got mine last month and LOVE IT! The 0% APR for seven months and the extended warranty on electronics bought with the card is fantastic. Bought a new 65 inch Samsung 4K TV that came with a 2 year Costco warranty, and just by using the card, it extended it to 4 years (plus took 2%).

 

Enjoy!

Sweet!  This is really an awesome card. And if you have the Executive membership, you'll get an ADDITIONAL 2% year-end of membership.  How cool is that?!

Re: Costco Anywhere Visa Citi card Approval

Went to Costco the other day and got laughed at when I pulled out my Amex.  "sorry we only take Visa.."

 

Well done on your approval and SL

Re: Costco Anywhere Visa Citi card Approval

Congrats!!! 5500 was my SL too. I've really come to use this card way more than expected. Costco has the best gas prices around here and since they don't take AMEX, that 4% on gas just rocks! I don't know about you, but I also love the idea of my membership auto-renewing on it as I can't tell you how many times over the years that I've completely forgotten to renew.
