I was a Sams member many years ago, but can't even remember what was required. Costco is totally new - so I have no idea.
Pay for your membership in cash and give them an alternate/fake address. They do not take credit cards anyway (only debit card, cash, check, or American Express). I don't remember if they check IDs or not but they do take your picture. Of course, if you order anything on line you will have to give them a real name and address. It might raise a red flag if it does not match what you gave them when you signed up.
Not sure why any of this matters. Zillions of people shop there every day without issue.
The only downside is that they send out a lot of coupons and promotions. Many of them are very good deals!
I've been a Costco member for years and I highly recommend them. Their website has a lot of prepper-related stuff not sold in the stores.
