  • Costco members are usually asked to show their membership cards at the door.
  • Business Insider spoke to seven Costco employees about what happens when a Costco member can’t — or won’t — show them their card.
  • They said that if you ever forget your membership card on a Costco run, bring your ID to the membership desk in order to snag a replacement.

It’s an aggravating scenario for any Costco member — arriving at the warehouse only to find that you’ve forgotten your membership card.

Because Costco is a members-only warehouse club, members are expected to show their cards upfront. Typically, Costco locations have an employee or two situated at the store’s entrance, to ensure that only members gain access to the warehouse.
