How to Pay Your American Express Costco Credit Card
Using the online payment option for your credit card makes the process of paying your balance much easier and faster.
Rather than waiting the week or so for a check to arrive to the company in the mail, with online payments your balance is transferred nearly immediately.
There are a few things you will need to complete first in order to pay your bill online.
Registering your card with American Express’s website is the first step to safely and securely paying your Amex Costco credit card.
After you finish this step, you’ll have to log on to the website using the information you created when you registered.
Next, simply follow the steps provided to set up a payment option with your bank and make a payment.
Registering Your Card
In order to register your card you need to first go to the American Express website to begin that process.
You’ll have to create a login account by using your credit card information.
You will also have to create a password and enter some personal information, like your address, name and email address.
Step 1: The first step in registering your card is to create a new account.
You’ll have to follow the link on the American Express website.
The link that should be followed (as you see below, circled in red) is labeled “Create New Online Account.”
Step 2: When you click this link you will be brought to a page where you’ll have to put in your 11 digit American Express card number and your 4-digit card ID.
You should have received both of these when you received your card.
Next, select “Continue” to complete your profile and continue the process of setting up your online payment method.
Step 3: After you enter this information, you’ll be prompted to enter some more information, including creating a user ID and password for your account.
Once you’ve completed all of this information, the account will be created and you will receive a confirmation email.
You’ll now be able to then log into your account and pay your bill.
Accessing Your Costco American Express Login
In order to log in you’ll have to use the user ID and password that you set up while you were registering your card.
This will ensure that all of your information in secured and unwanted people will not be able to access your account.
You’ll enter your User ID and password in their respective boxes.
The picture on above shows you where you’d put this information in.
Once the information (User ID and Password) has been entered, click the dark blue Login button and continue to the next page.
Paying Your Bill
In order to pay your bill you will have to be logged in.
Step 1: Once you are logged in you will see a link that will allow you to pay your bill.
Step 2: After clicking on this link you will be prompted to enter your preferred payment options; for example this could be through automatic deposit using your bank routing number.
If you have already set up a payment method the system will remember it, saving you the trouble of entering it again.
This will speed things along in your online payment process.
Step 3: Following this, you’ll have to enter the amount of payment you would like to make.
Your options will include “minimum payment,” “full balance,” or “other amount.”
If you choose the “minimum payment” amount, it will only pay the lowest amount that is due on your statement for that month.
“Full balance” will pay everything that is currently on your statement.
The “other amount” option will allow you to pay whatever you feel comfortable with for that month, anything over the minimum payment will go towards the current month’s payment.
Other Perks of Having an Online Account
The same online account that can be used to pay your bill can also be used for finding other information that is connected to your credit card.
When logged in you also get access to your monthly statements, may set up account alerts (e.g. if you are approaching your maximum credit limit), obtain mobile access, and set up scheduled payments.
You can access all of this and more through your online American Express account.
