nope pretty similar! some like Costco better for their return policy, food courts, and travel and insurance services. younger generation like sams scan&go better which easily saves half hr from Costco crowds. pricing similar slightly higher with Costco when coupon not available. Gas is cheaper @ both stations.
Sams : don't need a physical card at all! you can use phone to scan inside store as well as at gas stations.
11-04-2022 at 01:35 PM
I have been using both for several years, many Costco products (Kirkland) have superior quality by far vs Sam's (Member's Mark). It's worth having both imo.
11-24-2022 at 12:57 PM
sams gives you basis membership for free.. this promotion runs frequently. get 45 membership and giftcard free.
12-14-2022 at 03:36 PM
Although Sam's and Costco sell different items, Costco is far superior overall in my mind. The customer service is top notch (they truly stand behind what they sell). They also have samples almost every time I go, which I love. If you buy something and don't like it, you can return it, no questions asked (not just if it's defective). They want you to purchase items, and know you're more likely to do it if you are confident in liking the item.
12-14-2022 at 03:38 PM
Two examples:
At Sam's, I bought a veggie tray that was rancid (took it directly from there to the event). The next day, I took it back (they were closed by the time I left the event). At the time they had a 200% freshness guarantee. When I mentioned that, they said vegetables aren't a fresh item (which in this case was true, which was why I wanted the guarantee!)

At Costco (many years ago), my husband purchased an IPOD. My daughter (less than a year old), took the lid off the humidifier and dropped it in...obviously ruined. He asked customer service if they had an extended warranty (he'd purchased it about a week earlier). They told him 30 day return policy, no questions asked. He said it was completely our fault...they said they didn't care if it got run over by a car, they would take it back. He told them we would be members for life (and we have been!).

No, additional cardholders on another account are not considered new members.
11-08-2022 at 04:20 PM
Is this worth it if most of the time we just online/Delivery shop mostly food products for medium size family?Do you get much better discount on Instacart if you add your Costco card?
12-23-2022 at 05:02 PM
Costco charges extra for their online costco.com items, Example I went to the warehouse and bought 1 pack of Kirkland toilet paper, it was $19.99 in the warehouse. If you look it up online at costco.com you will see it is $23.99.
This is the same for all the items I've seen.
They claim no delivery charges for $75 or more purchases, but really it's already hidden in the price, buy 10 items and you are overcharged by $20->$40 compared to the warehouse.

No, it didn't work for my wife.

Unfortunately no. I just signed up and forgot to put in the code. Chatted immediately and rep said "The promo cannot be applied after the sign up is completed, unfortunately. "

Update: I just called in and they said they can mail a $45 Costco shop card in 6-8 weeks

Have you tried using a different email address?
12-14-2022 at 08:37 PM
You or anyone in the same household must not have a Costco membership in the last 18 months.

I got the email yesterday with the $45 shop card. Paid with Visa, didn't turn off auto-renewal until I received the email. Great deal, ty again OP
Costco support chat confirmed the code is valid and that you will receive a shop card, however because she didn't work in membership she wasn't able to see how much it was for (membership dept is closed at the moment). I also found this page: https://clarkdeals.com/deal/costc...embership/

Which states the same as the OP, but also gives an expiry date of Jan 1 2023.
It's under the payment window

"If you are purchasing this membership with a Visa card, you agree that your Costco membership fee will automatically renew at the membership price you've selected and be charged to your selected credit card annually on the first day of your renewal month until you choose a different form of payment or cancel your Costco membership. View additional terms and details.
If you are using a different form of payment, you can set up Auto Renew after the purchase."

Once you get shop card, immediately log back in and turn OFF auto renew. That flags system to send you out marketing communication (normally on monthly flyer) to renew with $20 off for 2024 via in store.

Have you received the card from costco? The sign up page does not confirm any details after the promo is input.

Contact their support tomorrow when they open, I'm sure they'll apply it retroactively for you.
