Very disappointing app
Love the paper version of Costco Connection. Stopped receiving it and unsure why. Just saw their was an app for it. Wow - very very disappointed. This seems useless. I love Costco but very disappointed they would have an app like this.
Useless app I don't know how why they have supplication on Apple Store
Why I will NEVER, EVER let go of Sam’s Club
I joined Costco last year for the first time ever, because a new one opened in my area. I am blessed to live in an area where I have BJs, Sam’s Club, and Costco all in one strip and within 3 miles of each other and 6 miles of my home. And yes, I do shop them all from time to time. I really enjoy the Costco magazine. I needed to review an article I read for something I need to get done. I couldn’t find the paper copy so I called Customer Service to see if they send me a duplicate copy. She directed me to the website for the online copy. I asked her if I could look in the app. She said yes. The Costco app directs me to this app which never allowed me to enter my membership number and shows me all the magazine covers and a completely white screen when I try to look into the issue. The first attempt did actually look like the article would pull up. Every subsequent time, nothing. Sam’s Club doesn’t build apps that don’t work. They’re apps are virtually flawless and operate superbly day in and day out. Plus with their Club pickup, with no minimum mind you, Scan and Go, and rewards that actually earn something, like the amount of my renewal and then some, there is no way I could ever stop shopping there. As long as you have crappy apps Costco, you will never beat Sam’s Club. Ever.
Lousy Search Engine
In an attempt to get away from hard copies, I was trying to search Pear and Pumpkin Protein Smoothie for an online link. I couldn’t even get close, including quotes around the search. I left the app and used google from my browser. Since my iPhone needs space, this app has to go.
Won’t save issues for later reading
The app works well as a reader, but will not currently save issues for later reading...whether the current issue or back issues
Why do you only send to my roommate?
I have been a member before you even started with the magazine and yet I have Never received one. This is unfortunate.
Non functioning app
Implores you to “subscribe for free” then pop ups state “in app purchases not available “ rendering app useless unless you enjoy perusing thumbnails of the covers from past issues.
