Do You ‘Costco’ in Loves Park? Membership Card Sharing is Gonna be Harder
If you "share" a membership card for Costco in Loves Park, they are cracking down hard on that...so it might not work anymore. WeAre
So you need a large amount of chicken wings, maybe there's 4 dozen rolls of paper towels in your future...The answer is heading to a Costco, to get what you need in bulk at a decent price. Now you will need a membership card for this, so why not ask around to see which of your friends has one. This is something that will be a lot harder to do in the near future.
Last month, Costco announced its intentions to more strictly enforce its membership policy, which stipulates that only Costco members are allowed to make purchases at checkout - WeAreGB
No more borrowing a membership card from a friend or relative just to get a 30-pack of frozen pizzas. That will not be happening at Costco anymore.
Now there are "three membership levels" with the Costco card, and the basic membership does allow someone else in your household to use it. But the days of grabbing your neighbors card to get a case of Tito's Vodka on the cheap, is over.
“Our membership policy states that our membership cards are not transferable and since expanding our self-service checkout, we’ve noticed that non-member shoppers have been using membership cards that do not belong to them, we don’t feel it’s right that non-members receive the same benefits and pricing as our members.” - Costco
