Costco gift cards — called Shop Cards — make great presents, though the wholesaler’s limited brick-and-mortar stores make it difficult for many to drop by their local Costco and pick one up.
In addition to buying them in-store, you can purchase a Shop Card from Costco’s official website.
You must be a Costco member to purchase a Costco gift card. Because of this requirement, Costco doesn’t sell its gift cards through third-party retailers like Walmart, Target, or Kroger.
Shop Cards are available in denominations from $25 to $2,000. However, Costco occasionally runs specials that allow members to save a few dollars on Costco Shop Cards.
Who Can Use Costco Gift Cards?
Though only members can purchase Costco Shop Cards, members and non-members alike can use the cards.
If you aren’t a member, you can show your Costco Shop Card at the door (with a balance on it) and enter the store.
