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.
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.
It's important to remember that share price alone offers an incomplete picture as to a company's true value and reveals little about the stock itself -- either good or bad. You have to look beyond the share price at the underlying business to determine what counts. Shopify (NYSE: SHOP) made starting an online business or launching an online store for an existing brick-and-mortar retail brand easier, even for those with little to no experience running their own company.
