Last year, Costco announced that an end to their 16-year partnership with American Express. In place, they cooperated with Citi Visa to bring current members a new and improved Costco card. The new card is set to send out to all current AMEX Costco cardholders in May with no new signup required.


If you’re continuing your card membership with Costco, here are a few things to look out for these coming months:

  • April - Costco will be mailing out more information and details about the new Costco Anywhere Citi Visa Card

  • May - Costco Visa Card will be sent out; don’t forget to set up your online account with Citi to manage your bills and benefits (this link will be valid in June)

  • June 20, 2016 - AMEX card will no longer be valid and you can begin using your Costco Visa online and in-stores are your local warehouse

  • See more details from Citi Costco page


Some of us will be sad to see AMEX go but accept Citi Visa with open arms as they boast some of the best rewards on the market. Take a look at the comparison below:
