Enjoy The Connection
on your mobile device
THE COSTCO CONNECTION is now available on the Apple
Newsstand, accessible via iPhones and iPads. It’s free, and you can easily sign up for a subscription on your mobile device so you’ll be alerted
as each new issue becomes available. Android users will find The
Connection newsstand edition in Google Play.
With the newsstand edition of The Connection you can access additional content; you’ll see it noted throughout this issue. Although
smartphones lack the size for a good experience in reading the maga-
zine as designed, there’s a way around that: Select “text” mode to see a
display of words and art better tailored to the smaller screen.
For the best mobile Costco experience, combine the regular delivery of The Connection’s magazine content with the shopping, coupon,
location and membership information already provided by the overall
Costco app introduced last June.
Here’s a guide to getting the most from the mobile Connection on
