First come up with a goal. Cash, travel, or MR points? Will you be buying a lot of gas at Costco? If yes, consider the Costco AmEx. If you want to balance your Costco purchases with non-Costco gas or groceries than the Blue Cash cards are good. Rather earn travel? Decide how (hotel/airline). We can't determine what best meets your needs. We can only reinforce the existing gospel to get the card that works best for YOU.
Personally, my first AmEx was the Costco one. I switched to the BCE after moving to a place with no convenient Costco locations. Now I'm a ten minute drive from one and my work is a 15 min drive from one with the area's cheapest gas. Once I pay my 0% APR cards down I plan to reapply for the Costco AmEx for the gas CB.
