Default Does Costco still fix flat tire?

For free even if the tire was bought at Costco?

Are they closed already? Is that why you didn't call them?

Huh, "even if the tire was bought at Costco"?



No they don't work on tires except those installed by Sam's Club.

I meant to say even if the tire wasn't purchase from Costco. I tried calling them and was put on hold forever. I have read that Costco will fix a flat from free if you are a member. Do know if it's true or not. That's why I asked.

Sam's Club will plug your tire for $3.88, just have to have a Membership (I wish I knew this before, I had to go to a regular mechanic shop to plug 2 holes for $10 each )

They also told me that my inner lining was too damaged and refused to put the tire back on, so I also had to buy a new tire

one time costco decided to patch my van tire with bicycle patches. Kept slow leaking, finally found out that it was slow leaking because they were using bike patches. Infuriated, my dad complained and they gave 4 new tires fo free.

Costco changed their policy. They no longer will fix flat tires from members who didn't purchase their tires at costco. At least that's what I remember reading.
