Costco is known for low prices, massive warehouses, and having arguably the most restrictive credit card policy of any major retailer. While Costco stores and gas stations accept most debit cards, they only accept Visa credit cards. Most other retailers accept credit cards from all the major payment networks, which include American Express, Discover, Mastercard, and Visa.
Costco (COST) closed at $515.59 in the latest trading session, marking a +0.15% move from the prior day.
Perhaps you live far from your closest Costco, so driving there will mean racking up a large credit card tab on gas alone. Or maybe you don't have a car, or you have such a jam-packed schedule there's no way you could possibly make time for a weekly Costco run. Thankfully, you don't have to set foot inside Costco to take advantage of its wide range of products.
