after 6/20, could we still load amex gc to costco cash card? TIA

No. Per Costco.com website, Costco.com will no longer take American Express, but will continue to take Visa, Mastercard and Discover. In store and gas stations, only Visa (and ATM/debit cards).

What’s the best way to churn costco with this new opportunity?

That doesn’t make a lot of sense. Not sure I read it that way.

We have confirmed that I was correct and wholesale clubs do share the $1,500 quarterly limit. I have updated the post.

Where do you see that Chase has extended it the rest of the year? I don’t think that is correct.

Chase contacted us to let us know. They will be announcing this to cardholders and on their website.

So the quarterly $1.500 limit will remain? Meaning this only benefits me if I don’t already spend the $1,500 at groceries or wholesale clubs during Q2? Please clarify!

Most folks already hit the cap for this qtr; this news is very much for upcoming qtrs.

I presume you don’t have trouble hitting the limit at Supermarkets, so Q2 isn’t really that interesting. But since its extended through the end of the year, it might be especially interesting in Q3 which is otherwise difficult with just restaurants.

Does this mean $1,500 limit 3rd quarter + $1,500 limit 4th quarter? Please clarify. Thanks.

The quarterly 5X limits haven’t changed. What has changed is that Wholesale Clubs will be part of the 3rd and 4th quarter categories. So, yes, $1500 limit 3rd quarter and $1500 limit 4th quarter.

Does this work for Costco Cash cards bought online at costco.com?

I believe Chase confirmed for some customers that Costco.com and Costco (as of June 20) will count, but you can always contact them to make sure 100%.

Yes, it works. Can confirm as I’ve done just that this quarter.

Sweet! No way I can spend $1500 alone in fast food next quarter, but this offer will help me max it out if I can successfully buy Visa/MC cards from Sam’s on credit.

Interesting to see if Costco.com codes properly as warehouse store for the bonus. Does anyone know?

IF nothing else, I guess you can buy a gift card inside and use it at the pump??

Awesome! Easy 90k MR points for us. My wife and I each have 2 Freedoms and we spend a ton of money at Costco for our business.

Anyone know if CostCo sells Visa/MC giftcards? If so, can you buy them with a credit card?
