Loonie has started a Forum to deal with the new Costco Co-branded Capital One MasterCard. Any one I have spoken to about this change is definitely upset due the change and the inconvenience and about how poorly Costco has communicated with their members....which to date I personally have had no communication from Costco at all.

I think it is also important to know the exclusions of the Executive Membership....and ask yourself should I buy all or only some items at Costco? Can I get a better deal for the excluded items some where else?

If you can....let's here about it.

The only thing that we buy fairly regularly at Costco that is excluded here is gasoline, but we would be able to get 2% back from any of several different MasterCards beginning in January.

I think that for a lot of these things you can do as well or better somewhere else anyway.

When it comes to Costco gas I have to drive a good distance West if I wanted their gas but I can drive less going East and gas prices are less than Costco, always. But of course on the cross border shopping trip Costco is usually always the cheapest gas. So Costco for gas is only if i am really close to empty AND close by.

Please write your comments in the forum.
