Costco Membership Now Comes with a New Feature You’re Going to Love

Read next


After loading your cart and filling up on samples, you want to get through the checkout line as fast as possible, but then you get stuck fishing through your diaper bag for that Costco Membership card. Luckily, now all you need is your phone to check out.

Costco just announced that the Costco app will now feature a digital membership card. All you have to do is show the clerk your app, which will display a unique QR code to be scanned and verify your membership.

You will need to download the app and verify your account, which involves answering a series of questions, before you can make purchases, so be sure to do that at home first before you get to the Costco check out line and you’ll be ready to shop and pay instantly.

You’ll still need your wallet handy to pay as the app is only for verifying membership at this time. The app also doesn’t work at Costco Gas, so don’t forget your regular membership card at the pump.
