Costco - Can You Bring in Friends to Help Shop & Is There Any Way to Split a Membership with Someone Thats Not Family

Was Hoping to split a membership with a mate with HOUSEHOLD CARD, but might just have to bite the bullet on that one

Also are members allowed to bring friends in to help shop/choose if the member buys, thinking of going with some mates to stock for new years/Hollies

Cheers

    You are allowed to bring along two friends. No split bills unless you have multiple cards or a business card, but just pay for the first lot, then exit and enter again to pay the second?

    If you have a company (or possibly just an ABN?) you can get a business membership, can split a bill and it is $5 cheaper

    U can, they just need to get your change of address sticker from RMS pretending you live in the same address.

    Yes up to 2 friends, but if paying by card, the MEMBER must used a card in their name.

    So have your friend bring cash or be prepared to transfer the money to you.

    GO in with your friend, sign up, you get a card, they get a card. You both live at the same address right ;)

    Get communal trolley, print receipt, have them total their amount and transfer to you.

    The other thing to keep in mind is that, although some things are multipacks, some things are 2 kg jars etc. So you will be able to split some things but you will need to "rejar" or be prepared to eat a LOT of some things. Sour cream comes in 1L, Yogurt in 2Kg, Milk in 3L bottles, etc.

    If you unload all your items onto the conveyor belt first, followed by each friend's separately, it becomes much easier to calculate how much they owe you each from the receipt!

    Can this be done with Amazon Prime and/or ebay plus?

    You'd share login details but everyone would have their own address, PayPal and credit card accounts stored.

    Just pretend to be a same-sex couple.
