6 Ways You Can Shop at Costco Without a Membership


You Can Get the Deals Without a Costco Membership!

1. You Can Use a Costco Gift Card 

Anyone can shop at a Costco if they have the Costco Cash Card, which is their version of a gift card.

One caveat: If you don't have a Costco Cash Card and want to use it online, you'll be charged 5% more than the quoted price on everything except prescriptions.

It's not as difficult as you may imagine to obtain a Cash Card as a non-member. GiftCardGranny.com, a resale aggregator, occasionally puts them available at a discount to anyone who wants one!

2. Bring a member friend with you.

Costco members are allowed to bring up to two guests into the warehouse.

Just keep in mind that if you're a non-member going in with a friend, they'll be responsible for the tab, and you'll have to settle up with them afterward.

3. Have Your Vision Examined

Costco's optical services are available to non-members for exams and screenings

However, if you require glasses, contacts, or hearing aids, you'll need a membership or a buddy who can get you into the store and make the purchases for you

Of curse, as we mentioned in suggestion #1, you could always use a gift card!

4. Fill a Prescription at the Pharmacy as a Non-Member

In an era when prescription expenses are soaring, Costco consistently maintains among of the lowest prices on pharmaceuticals.

The best part is that you don't have to be a Costco member to use the drugstore. Non-members can even enter through a separate entrance that leads right into the drugstore in some places. Before you leave, call your local store to double-check.

5. Go out and buy some booze

Many states make it illegal to sell alcohol through any kind of club or membership. Check your state's laws to check if you're allowed to buy alcohol at Costco.

6. Go shopping on the internet

Costco.com is open to everyone. If you don't have a membership, keep in mind that there will be a 5% surcharge.
