What Sets Complete ID Apart?

One of the most unique aspects of Complete ID identity theft services is that it is only available to members of Costco. The popular warehouse store company designed the plan for their members with the help of their partner, CSID.

Another thing that makes them stand out is the A+ Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating of the two parent companies, Costco and CSID. This high grade should indicate that their joint product, Complete ID identity theft protection, is reliable and superior to other options.

Conversely, the third thing that stands out about Complete ID is the abundantly negative reviews from customers that can be found across the Internet. The main complaint seems to be that the 24/7 support does not answer when people call or return calls.

Complete ID Price & Plans

The only discernible difference in Complete ID’s plans is their price. Both plans offer the exact same services with the cheaper plan being offered to Costco members at the higher priced membership level. Another difference – although admittedly minor – is the one-dollar difference in the cost of adding monitoring for your child.

Costco Executive Members$8.99$11.98
Costco Business & Gold Members$13.99$17.98

Current Deal

Costco does not offer any distinct deals for their Complete ID identity theft services. However, the base price of their plans reflects savings over what they would cost if the customer wanted to get them directly from CSID.

CSID’s identity theft packages run between $19.99 and $29.99 so Costco customers are saving more than 50 percent off the regular price. Even with the cost of a Costco membership, the monthly cost of their Complete ID identity theft plans is a great deal.

About Complete ID

While Complete ID is a Costco branded product, Costco does not own it. Rather, Costco has partnered with another company to provide identity theft services to their customers. Originally, Costco worked with Identity Guard and branded their identity theft services as “Premium Identity Protection” but changed to “Complete ID” when they switched to Experian as a provider.
