Great. Looks like you can use it on most things except the Gas stations, or at least not yet.

I hope not, the lines are already long. It would easy to share membership benefits with everyone at the gas station.

Doesn't look like this is linked to your Costco Visa card and can be used to pay for things? I think for most people, the logical form of payment while at Costco would be the Costco Visa card, which already has the membership information included.

Curious what the use case for this new feature is?

Apparently the QR code is dynamic and will be changing every day, week, or something like that, which is why you get the warning when you screencap it.
That won't stop people from sharing their account login altogether.

Since this doesn't work with the iOS or Android Wallet, and most people seem to have the Costco Citi Visa, this seems largely pointless, especially since it doesn't work at the gas pumps lmao. Typical Costco. 10 years behind everybody else.
You do realize people can load the Costco Visa on a virtual wallet, right?

Yes, but not this Costco virtual membership card. Easier to just carry the Citi Visa with you than deal with their horrible app, which requires internet to bring up your membership QR code.

It shows your photo, in color, in the app, so it's going to be very YMMV when it comes to sharing.

It's the gas station, they will never check for ID.

They usually let you use it even if you don't have your Id. I forgot mine a couple times and the attendant will scan their card but they always look at you like your lying Smilie
