Here are the seven steps to use your Costco gift card to make your purchase.
Go to your Costco account and click Login at the upper right-hand corner of the screen. Enter your email address and password, or create a new account if you haven't already done so. Select Shop Online and enter your Costco membership ID number.
Visit the Costco website to view the current list of items you can purchase using a Costco gift card and their prices. You will see a menu with a list of categories. Choose your category.

GetHuman has been working for over 10 years on sourcing information about big organizations like Costco in order to help customers resolve customer service issues faster. We started with contact information and fastest ways to reach a human at big companies. Particularly ones with slow or complicated IVR or phone menu systems. Or companies that have self-serve help forums instead of a customer service department. From there, we realized that consumers still needed more detailed help solving the most common problems, so we expanded to this set of guides, which grows every day.
