Costco online orders: exchanges

one: planning to buy something on costco . ca using my friends costco card. if something was to happen and i needed to return it , would i be able to walk into a costco with my bill and method of payment and return it without hassle or will they ask for my member card?

two: do they cross check the member number with the bill name / ship to name on costco .ca?

no they will not let you walk into Costco. You are not a member.

^What noventa said. You won't even be able to enter Costco.

They are HUGE assholes over this kind of thing. One cashier hassled me because of a missing hyphen between my costco card and my credit card. Had to get a new card issued.

^ Thanks guys.

third: Does costco automatically extend the standard manufacture warranty for a 2nd year? So, all new (not refurbished) electronics from costco come with a 2 yr manuf. warranty.

They ask for your costco membership to do any transactions. Returns exchange price match. Only thing they dont ask is when they sell you hot dogs. Haha

TVs, yes. Other electronics, no.

One: Weigh the potential savings/extra warranty + cost of membership vs buying from FS/BB/Visions, etc.
Two: Get a visitor day pass to do a walkthrough of a Costco warehouse to see what they have and if any of the products interest you
Three: All of the questions you just asked here you could have asked at Costco customer service when getting a visitor day pass.
Four: A visitor day pass is a view only pass. You can't buy anything with it.

For TVs yes. Not sure about cameras or laptops though.

Sure they won't "let" you enter but it's easy to enter without a card. Just tell the door guy that you're looking to get a membership or something..make up some excuse. Or you can enter through the exit. Easy peasy.

As for online orders, no it won't work. I tried buying something a while back using my friend's Costco card but paid with my credit card and they cancelled my order. They're anal like that.

best option for you is to get your friend to buy it for you. But since costco has a such a kickass return policy, if anything goes wrong it will be easy to have him/her make the claim for you.

Purchaser's credit card must match the membership, or else orders wont go through.

If returning any online orders, If you paid with MC or Visa you will get store credit. They only do refunds on Amex.

if you dont want to buy the membership just get your friend to buy you a gift card and that will let you in and they'll allow you to make your purchase

Yea, I often enter via the exit to eat first before shopping at the Burnaby Location and have never been asked to show my card before and only 1 time they even bothered asking what I was going in for. With that said, besides eating there isn't much you can take advantage of anyways without a card lol.

There is a loophole where you can shop at Costco if you have a Gift card for those cheap ass motherfuckas who never ever want to buy a membership card.

It's probably better that he didn't since his friend will also get in trouble for sharing cards.

I remember I went with my mom and she didn't bring her card with her, so we used mine at the till, and the cashier wouldn't accept the cash that came out of my mom's wallet, but accepted mine.

As the others have suggested, you're going to have to ask your friend to help on this one.
