Members that have a Sam's Club nearby now through June 26th can get a membership (2) for $8.00. The Mrs. and I each got a membership for the $8.00 charge.
NO CARDS given out . The Service Desk give you a temporary paper receipt. Go to your App Store download Sam's Club App to your "smart" phone and install your info and membership number.
Paper receipt does not work at the automated gas pumps.
2 cards for $8.00 is a great deal when the regular cost is $40.00. IMO

YOU MUST MENTION THE PROMO AT THE SERVICE DESK.
Or they charge you full price.

Something to consider.

Good deal, but I got a better deal through Groupon a few months ago. Pay $35 and get a $45 gift card. net $10 profit.

Check your local Groupon website to see if it is still available.

Well, all I can say is that at my local Sam's there isn't a single black person in sight anywhere. Maybe they all work in the back room?

Maybe your Sam's is an anomaly. Here there were black customers and workers just like any other retailer around here.

Are people boycotting WallyMart too over this?

We have BJ's club. I've not found much from there and have joined twice. Christmas of 21, I got lots of memberships for the fam. Wasn't used often and if it weren't for signing up 2 for 50 bucks, would have left it at that. I have bought my latest computer, my cell phone and got a great deal on hearing aid batteries.
Wife's insurance is taken at optical department.
I got 2 pair of prescription glasses and promptly lost one in a leaf pile. My Trump specs need to be fixed and I've been operating on cheaters for a few years.

My iphone allows me to turn off App locators, or allow when authorized, or never turn ON. IDK if all smartphones have that ability.

I've had one but frankly didn't get much out of it. There were a handful of things. I think the whole cooked chicken was a great deal.
I really hated the security check. I've seen Walmart attempt that at times. Of course they have no legal right but I guess they can ask. Once I've paid its mine. I am not beholden to prove it to them.

I went up to get a membership. That place looks like a flea market on steroids. No thanks.

It's basically Costco for poor people from what I saw. They can keep it.

Not sure about BJ’s, but the Costco pharmacy is separate from Costco. I checked once for employees to access without a membership. The optometrist might be the same—tell them at the door you are seeing the doctor.

How soon ye forget about the racist black CEO @ Sams Club... to hell with this organization, I'll never shop there ever again....

People are calling Sam's Club CEO 'racist' after she gave an interview about diversity

If you really think about it only in rural America ( Flyover Country) are white men NOT discriminated against.

They just sell the glasses. Need to see a separate doc for the script.

5% off on gas with Sam's credit card, and Sam's is about 20-30 cents cheaper right now.

What will they think of next?

At the time I got my card it was only issued to those with a business. And they took your photo and laminated it in with the membership card. The club was a relatively new concept and kind of a big deal at the time. But I have never renewed my annual membership or been there since it expired. But for some reason, I can't bring myself around to tossing the card.

Fortunately we now have a local Costco. Their building was converted from a relatively new and huge Whirlpool warehouse that closed shop. About half of the warehouse space has been converted to indoor parking with room for many hundreds of cars. Makes it nice. Costco runs a first-class operation.

It was awful nice of that family to hire the disabled butler.

They felt bad for him as he was one of the workers picked up at the Home Depot parking lot to fix up their summer cottage, where he got injured. Fell out of the back of a pickup truck.

Cash back price is reflected in the original costs.
