Costco’s role to prevent membership card sharing

Costco’s role to prevent membership card sharing

No More Account Sharing After Netflix, it’s now Costco’s turn to prevent membership cards from being shared at self-service checkout.

It will now be impossible for non-members to shop at Costco. At the self-service checkout, store customers will be asked to show a photo ID to confirm payment each month for a Costco subscription, according to Business Insider.

Costco has noticed that many share a Costco card between them at the time of payment, even though this action is not authorized.

It is an increasingly popular business. However, the company points out that the person who does not pay for the subscription should not have the same benefits as the person who does.

“We don’t think it’s fair for non-Costco members to get the same benefits and prices as our members,” the company told Insider.

Costco’s Privilege Membership Card costs $60 for two people from the same address. For the Executive Privilege Membership Card $120.

The Business subscription lets you add members at a cost of $60 each.

Costco added that asking for proof of membership at checkout can also reduce the risk of shoplifting.

In Michigan, Costco has already started requiring proof of identification at checkout at self-service checkout.
