Last week we talked about Costco, this week I’m sharing Sam’s Club Shopping Secrets.
I find myself shopping at Sam’s Club more because it is closer and they offer early morning hours for Plus members which means I can get in and out of there really fast!
Like Costco there are discounts galore, but there are some other ways to save time and money. Did you know these tips?
Discounted Gift Cards…
The Secret of Prices Ending in 1…
If a price ends in a 1, it’s a sale price on a clearance item and it will never be lower.
So if you see something you like with a 1 at the end, you might want to grab it before it’s gone.
Learn The Sam’s Club Alphabet…
Sam’s Club also has a unique system of categorizing their deals. On the upper right-hand corner next to the item number, there’s a letter that indicates the following:
A: Active – the item is normally carried in store.
N: Never out – the item should always be in stock.
C: Canceled – the store no longer carries that item.
S: Seasonal – the item will be restocked a few times until it’s gone and then will return next season.
O: One-Time Buy – the store only has a one-time shipment of the item.
Skip The Lines By Checking Out With The App…
If you like shopping in person, but you want to avoid the long lines, you can download the Sam’s Club Scan & Go app. Customers can scan and pay for their items on the app and show their digital receipt on the way out.
Plus if you use their credit card you can save even more.
Take Advantage Of Travel & Entertainment Deals…
If you’re ready to travel, check out the travel deals at Sam’s Club first. Club members get up to 25% off car rentals nationwide as well as big discounts on resorts, theme parks, and sporting events.
Receive Emergency Roadside Service With Your New Tires…
Buying new tires comes with a big perk at Sam’s Club. With proof of in-store installation, active membership holders get access to a 24-hour, toll-free number for emergency roadside service. For three years after the purchase of the tires, if you get a flat, need a jump, or even need fuel assistance, the service will send help to get you back on the road.
Plus they have the cheapest prices on tires (yes they beat out Costco).
Members Can Get Free Generics At The Pharmacy…
– Vitamin D2 50,000 IU
Also, look for pet medication at the Sam’s Club pharmacy, along with discounts on pet insurance.
Sam’s Club Return Policy Is Generous…
You don’t need a receipt to make a return, and most items can be returned for an indefinite amount of time. But you do need your order number.
Sure, Sam’s won’t let you return anything and everything. Contacts, eyeglasses, alcohol, cigarettes, and gift cards are a few items in the “non-returnable” category.
