Easy to apply, online or in-person. I applied in-person, had a credit score of 793, and was approved instantly for a credit limit of ~15%/income level. Rewards make this card worth it for me - major caveat is that the rewards can only be redeemed at Costco. Not a problem personally, but may be for others.

The Costco Anywhere Visa® Card by Citi offers impressive rewards for Costco members.
What to Like
The rewards here are pretty great, highlighted by 4% cash back on gas purchases (up to $7,000 in purchases each year). Cardholders also get 3% cash back on restaurant and eligible travel purchases, 2% on other Costco purchases and 1% on all other purchases. To top it off, there’s no annual fee besides the cost of your Costco membership.
Look Out For
To get this card, you have to be a Costco member, which of course comes with an annual fee. There’s also a foreign transaction fee and a high penalty APR that could apply if you miss a payment.

Costco Citi Card Sucks! Their customer service is terrible. They repeatedly push you back to the the vendor even though the account error is made by Citi. We have had to deal with Citi customer service more often in the short time since Costco switched to them then we ever had to with American Express. Transaction reversals are repeatedly left on the account even though the vendor reverses them immediately. Citi refuses to address them telling us to contact the vendor. They give conflicting answers regarding the reversals, sometimes saying that they will disappear in 30 days, sometimes saying that if the vendor doesn't correct them the charges will go through even though the vendor dealt with the reversal immediately. Their web interface is much less capable than that of American Express regarding transaction info and reporting. PLEASE COSTCO, DUMP CITI AND GO TO ANOTHER MORE FRIENDLY CARD COMPANY!
