Costco Anywhere Visa® Business Card By Citi

The Costco Anywhere Visa® Business Card By Citi is a rewards card designed for small business owners who shop at Costco. Warehouse stores such as Costco don’t often qualify for cash back on other cards, so this card is a good value. Technically, it doesn’t have an annual fee, but you do need to be a Costco member, which is currently $60 a year. The rewards are good, but there is no welcome offer.

One quirk is that you can only redeem rewards once a year after your February statement closes and only redeem them at Costco. We dive into the details in this Costco Business review.
