NerdWallet Review

Author: Virginia C. McGuire

The Costco Anywhere Visa® Card by Citi's launch was a bit rocky. But the card's generous rewards structure should be enough to earn forgiveness from many Costco shoppers.

The Costco Anywhere Visa® Card by Citi is a hybrid between a store credit card and a general rewards card. It offers 2% cash back on Costco and Costco.com purchases — but there are other flat-rate cards out there that pay 2%, so that's not the card's best feature.

Instead, it's the ability to earn a whopping 4% back on gas, whether you fill your tank at Costco or a regular gas station, that makes this card such a good deal. You'll only earn the higher rate on the first $7,000 you spend on gas annually, and there are limitations on which types of gas stations are eligible. But this benefit could save car commuters and road trip vacationers a lot of money.

The card also pays 3% back on qualifying restaurant and travel purchases, and a flat 1% back on everything else.

The biggest downsides are the 3% foreign transaction fee and the fact that you can only redeem your rewards once a year — in person, at Costco.
