Peggy sent a message to W. Craig Jelinek – President and Chief Executive Officer of Costco Wholesale Corporation email address that said:
We have been members a long time. I have always appreciated the Costco philosophy. That makes this decision to align yourself with Citibank even more troubling. That institution helped cause the crash of 2008 and took taxpayer bailout money. The leaders of the company never paid for causing thousands of people to lose their jobs,their homes and their future. Instead they actually got bonuses. They can try and change their name but I remember. I am very disappointed in you for supporting them with the VISA card you have instituted.
