Citi Costco Credit Card Review & Setup Guidance



Costco ended the 16-year cooperation with American Express and started to spread its Anywhere Visa Card on this June, the card needs no annual fee but $55 for membership and if you are already a member of American Express and an upcoming new user of Anywhere Credit card, then you can simply start to use your new card on 20 June, 2016 and stop to use your old card from the same day.

    have tried to get info.on the charges on my card ending1024 I am unable to find a person to talk to,yuor service is no good.

  3. I had a terrible time for three days calling citicostcovisa. I had to give personal info and still got no information on my lost card on 08/14/16. I was asked for the last 4 digits of my visa costco card #. I gave it to them and they said no record. Of course that # would not show up because I cancelled that lost card on 8/14/16. I was asked for the card # , how can I give a card when I told you I lost my card. All I wanted to know is have I been issued a new card and has it been mailed this was on 8/26/16. On 8/27/16 I finally got a person who reassured me my new card was mailed on 8/22/16

    Actually I am a customer of Citi for last 8 years and find their system annoyingly unsatisfactory. They are not being straight with the customers and only want them to use Citi debit card to gain access to Costco card account in the guise of ‘security’ and customer safety. You won’t get wiser even if you call their customer service number. Their pin is stuck on use of debit card.

  7. Had no problem at all. I FOLLOWED their instructions and was finished in 2 min.

  8. Had in problem just FOLLOWED their instructions was done in 2 min.

    I got your letter today re activating my Costco.Citi card. I SENT YOU A LETTER EXPLAINING WHY I HAD NO INTENSION OF DEALING WITH CITI BANK. I LOST THE “REWARDS” THAT I HAD EARNED. BUT COULD NOT DEAL WITH YOUR ACCOUNTING PRACTICES. I WAS VERY HAPPY WITH THE
    STRAIGHT FORWARD WAY THAT AMERICAN EXPRESS CHARGES WERE LISTED. I GO TO COSTCO, BUT
    HAVE A BUSINESS MEMBERSHIP AND I USE MY VISAD CARD. IT IS A CLEAR, STRAIGHT FORWARD
    PROCESS. SO YOU CAN TAKE MY NAME OFF OF YOUR RECORDS….PLEASE!
