The switch from AmEx to Capital One and MasterCard is a given in Canada and occurs as of the first of 2015. Costco has said it is evaluating the same move in the U.S. but I haven't seen anything definite on it actually occurring.
I would presume that Costco has a list of members that have the Costco Amex card and may turn that over to Capital One (assuming that was the new partner) who, in turn, would probably send offers to apply for the new [branded partner] Costco credit card. Of course, there would be the ubiquitous greeter at the table just inside the door with boxes of paper apps to hand out as you come through the door.
I would think Amex would, in turn, notify the customer that their existing Costco card would be converted to one of their other products, if not just nerf the Costco-related benefits.
