App Reviews

  • Messed something up with the last update

    By Fuhri2
    I love Costco and even though the app isn’t perfect, I still use it regularly and it works as intended, for the most part. The latest update made it very frustrating to look at anything though. If you need to press the back button after looking at an item it now takes you all the way back to the main screen instead of back to the list you were looking at. This also happens if you need to sign in to look at the price of an item. After signing in, it takes you back to the main page and you have to find the item again to see the price. I’m hoping this all gets fixed very soon because of all the holiday sales that are going to happen soon. One of the minor things that I wish Costco would add to the app, is something that I don’t think seems too hard. When the new sale list comes out, but not live yet, I get excited and want to see prices on everything that looks intriguing. When some things are able to buy online as well many times I want to take a look at it online to see the price and see how good of a deal it is. If you press the item from the app you will get redirected to a page saying the deal is not in effect yet. I wish it would still take me to the item regardless if the deal is in effect or not. I have to copy the item number and then put it in the search bar to see the item. I just wish it was more seamless.
  • Extremely Frustrated

    By Garrykh
    I can in no way recommend this app or for that matter anything online from COSTCO. I love their stores though. I ordered an $850 item and was charged twice with two separate orders for the same item. The customer service notified me I had a 27 minute wait to speak to someone. I waited and the person told me this had been happening but there was nothing she could do about it. I was billed for both orders. She cancelled one order but said it was “up to their vendor” if it could be actually cancelled and it was not a returnable item (security camera). Too bad for me I guess so I stopped payment on the credit card. I was informed that COSTCO does not call members. I guess being a “member” negates any rights as a “customer”. My advice is don’t let this app ruin things for you. Shop only in the store until COSTCO gets its software and online customer service in order. Both are terrible as it now stands. At least that is my experience.
  • Needs Apple Pay for purchases & membership card

    By Dookie 2x
    Now that Costco has updated their Verifone card readers in their warehouses to support Apple Pay - the app needs to catch up. It would be even better if the app also allowed for pushing the membership card to Apple Wallet but I’d be happy if it just allowed for the membership card to be available in app. Costco registers barcode scan the membership card anyway so it’d be easy to add to the app even if it was just allowing customers to manually add it by simply taking a picture of their physical member card. With warehouses supporting Apple Pay I’m nearly to the point where I don’t need to carry my wallet with me. Costco was the last hold out! Please allow for the member card to be stored in app or better yet pushed to Apple Wallet!
  • Does not work with Face ID

    By Linacjsdad
    Latest update will not work with Face ID. Even with selecting “remember me” it will log out and when you open the app, Face ID pops up and all your info is gone and you have to enter your email and password again. Does this every single time. Needs to be fixed. Also, when you back page, it starts at the very beginning!! When I’m scrolling through items, I’ll find something that looks interesting. I’ll select that item to get more info. After that, I’ll back page to get back to scrolling, and bang!!! I’m back to the very beginning of scrolling! I have to scroll fast to try and find where it was I was last at. What a pain!! After 2 times, I’m done using the app because you always end up at square 1. Please fix the app Regards Frustrated.
  • Love Costco, but not so much this App

    By Mrs.MRB
    I use the app for many of my online purchases. This version needs an update badly. The biggest problem is that the app times you out, so all the work you've done to save things to your cart is futile. It has happened numerous times, so I find this rather irritating. I also do not like that the app now makes me sign in even if I have checked the remember me box. My devices already have pass codes so this gets ridiculous. The new “grocery” option is a joke. It doesn’t save any time and is so much more expensive now than just before they included the feature. But other than that, it's a pleasure doing business with you. Costco, please step it up. Help us love you & this app at Christmastime and all throughout the year.
  • Love Costco shopping!

    By 123$78&
    We do most of our grocery shopping here as well as buying clothing staples. I love the app categories, what’s new, this weeks treasures and the limited items. The information on items available in the warehouse is very helpful too. I shop both and it’s easy to know I can pick things up vs having them shipped. One improvement I would like to see is the pages button listed on top as well as the bottom and the ability to type in a page vs having to scroll through when there are 3-4 sets of pages. Overall I love the app, love Costco pricing and am looking forward to more shopping!
  • People are ridiculous

    By plzzstop
    What’s up with everyone so needy with technology, people act like they couldn’t live a day without their phones. If you don’t want to have a membership card then don’t shop at costco you can get lower quality product at an alternative store like “sams” which is slowly closing down over 70 stores across the states and more to come... and then what will you do with your electronic membership cards? Also if you don’t enjoy shopping online, get off your booty and go into a warehouse and shop yourself it’s really not that bad..
  • Can you please improve the search experience?

    By RochesterNy
    It’s a nice app that definitely has promise. The search feature could be improved by retaining the search text so that it could be refined, respelled, etc. I did a search for “eggs” and got no eggs, just canned freeze dried meat products, some dogfood and eggrolls. I know Costco sells eggs so did I spell “eggs” correctly or did the app look for something else or just not find eggs? One great improvement would be to display the location of items in the selected warehouse right in the app. As much as I love roaming through the warehouse to find things that I can’t live without, there are those rare occasions when I need to get in and out in a hurry.
  • Love Costco, hate the app

    By Vl0000
    I just updated the app and it is still horrible! Who coded it anyway? Here are just a few issues: the touch sensitive area of arrows is too small and requires multiple tries before clicking on right spot; the app doesn’t load UPS pages when you click on the tracking link; there are still issues with persisting login. In this digital day and age, it’s unforgivable for a large retailer to be so lacking with technology. Previous: This is seriously one of the worst shopping apps. It's very dated, the order status page only gives you dates, and today the order status page gives an error message. There is no in app technical support. The app support link in the App Store goes to their homepage! Such a huge disappointment for such a good store.
  • No Apple Wallet Membership Card

    By iCJ
    Sams now has their membership card on their app and Costco should have had it first. It’s crazy in 2018 that Costco can’t get with the times and that they are so ridiculously tied too antiquated membership cards. Physical membership cards are not secure, they are not convenient, they wear out, the picture is ridiculously pixelated and easily spoofed. There’s really no good reason to not have a digital card with a higher quality photo that pops up on your phone or Apple Watch as soon as you get close to a Costco so that it’s easy to present at the door and even easier at the checkout. And while we are on that subject, quit holding out and except Apple Pay already. I’m a Costco stockholder, it’s good for business, get it done.
