Ask someone who is already a member to buy you a Costco Cash Card:

With a cash card, you can shop at Costco, even if you aren’t a member. You use the cash card to get in the door and pay for your purchaes, with no surcharges or other extra fees.

Wow! That’s awesome. Wish I’d known that when the Sony printable DVD’s were on sale a few weeks back. Thanks a million! I’ll be ready next time.

Interesting. I will have to look into that.

Reading through the description, you can’t add credit to the card yourself though.

No, you can’t. However, if you plan to shop at Costco a couple times, you can get a card with a larger amount, by estimating how much you plan to spend overall. If you’re going to do a lot of shopping there, then obviously, you need to get a membership. The cash card does not replace that. The cash card only allows a person to ocassionally shop there without having to become a member.

The point is that for those people, like me, who only shop at Costco for two things, (1) automobile tires and (2) blank media, we can get a friend to fill up a cash card for us for those rare visits.

That is a great idea.

Wonder if the same thing will work at Sams Club. They have a gift cards available.
