I get very cross at the requirements for membership to Costco. I hear so many people talk about shopping there and the bargains they get and yet here I am, desperate to join but I don't qualify frown Why do they put stipulations on who can join?

From the Costco website at www.costco.co.uk:-

Quote
Individual Membership

You qualify for Individual membership if you belong to or are retired from specific employment groups.
The cost to become an Individual member is 25 +VAT per annum, and this includes a complimentary spouse/domestic partner card for someone over the age of 18.
Membership is available to individuals over the age of 18 years who meet one of the following requirements:

Qualified as:
  • Chartered Architect
  • Optician
  • Pharmacist
  • Chartered Surveyor
  • Qualified Accountant
  • Solicitor/Barrister
  • Dentist
  • Magistrate/Advocate
  • Chartered/Civil Engineer

Current or retired employee of:
  • Banking/Finance
  • Civil Servant
  • Education
  • Fire/Rescue
  • Insurance
  • Local Government
  • Airline
  • Post Office
  • Police Force
  • Medical/Health Service

For further information on professions and employment groups accepted at Costco, please contact the membership team on 01923 830 477.


As for their reasons, I couldn't say, except that it's not a "normal" retail outlet, it's more like a wholesale warehouse with extended membership. As such, it's up to them who they chose to offer membership to.

Do you know anyone who has Costco membership? Members are allowed to take up to 2 guests with them, so that may be an option for you

i have a costco membership and i can have friends on there they just pay a fee for their card (15) i think, and can go when they please, im not sure when mine runs out i think its november, if your really desperate to shop there you can give me the money and i will register a card for you, but honestly your not missing much, it certainly isnt cheaper unless your buying in bulk, we get our tellys from there cos of the 5yr guarentee,

Elizabeth. Your profile states you are in 'Banking' therefore you qualify for a Costco membership.

Never found them to be that cheap anyway except maybe for food platters and danish pastries. They sell things in odd size packaging so its not so easy to compare prices.

I worked for a bank when I lived in USA, now that I've returned to UK I'm no longer employed in the banking field.

There has to be ONE perk of working, right?

I love a Costco.

Bought the other half some jewellery for Xmas from there.
