My husband and I purchased gift cards from Costco for our family, all of who are Costco members. We live in different states.
When they went to Costco to use the gift cards they were told, WE would have to activate the gift cards for them. My brother was literally in Costco with a gift card purchased for him, along with his own Costco membership and told, he could not use the giftcard since we had not activated it. Even though the giftcard was ordered online and shipped from their warehouse directly to him. So we had to get the gift card numbers from our family members and call them in ourselves.
This is *** and inconvenient.
We've bought other people gift cards and never had to do this. We will never purchase Costco gift cards again.
