It is true, you cannot buy anything without being a member, that includes cash cards. You don't need to be a member to use a cash card.
Which should mean even though I'm not a Costco member, I have a right to use my green card and buy a gift card it could for birthday gift, Christmas or wedding anniversery.
What I'm wondering is there a difference between a gift card and a cash card? For anybody who lives near a Costco far away from my area, do they give 1 day passes with a work badge? In my area BJ's does.
What's the difference between BJs and costco aren't they the same?
No difference, they are called cash cards. No one day passes. Membership can be refunded at anytime. The difference is that BJ's is desperate for members, Costco isn't, and Costco is much more competitive with Sam's pricing, BJ's is not competitive at all, ie. overpriced.
