TrueEarnings® Business Card from Costco and American Express

The TrueEarnings® Business Card from Costco and American Express provides a number of rewards and benefits for Costco shoppers.

Update June, 2016: The Costco credit card is now offered by Citi instead of American Express. You should have already received your new card in the mail, but if you didn’t you can contact Citi customer service.

You can find the new personal card here: The Costco Anywhere Visa® Card by Citi.

Or the new business card here: The Costco Anywhere Visa® Business Card by Citi.

This is a store-branded card. You may be able to get better rewards and terms with a general-use reward credit card instead.
