Hi, per this forum I've heard Costco is suppose to accept their Costco Cash Card even if you don't have a membership...Yet I've had a 50/50 shot at getting it...Is there any way to get them to accept it/allow you to buy there?

What are you telling them? I've gotten hassle, but it's worked for me 100% of the time.

I think I got the solution as you need a manger anyways...

Been saying lately "Could you please call a manager over? I don't have a membership but have the cash card which allows me to purchase items with the managers approval"

I just tell them the service desk says to use 99. My troubles are usually with the over zealous door greeters.

So do you even need the card or a manager override? Just asking because the cashiers are usually clueless and need to call over a manager yet I've had prior issues with the cashiers even calling managers...Bottom line, thanks, if I can say "please just use code 99" that would be a far better experience than my previous ones...lol

For my store, as long as you show the cash card they don't seem to care...

Still needs the managers key, think 99 i some kind of override.
