If you’ve considered joining Sam’s Club — or even if you haven’t — now might be a good time to act.
Sam’s Club is currently offering new members a $220 membership offer for $45 through Sept. 5.
The wholesale club’s basic membership level — called Sam’s Savings — costs $45. But with this deal, you get a lot more for that same price.
This $45 annual membership deal includes:
- A free upgrade to the highest of three membership levels, called Sam’s Plus, which normally costs $100
- A free $20 Sam’s Club gift card or e-gift card
- $100 in Instant Savings
The perks you’ll enjoy only as a Sam’s Plus member generally include:
- Cash rewards that you can put toward purchases or membership fees or redeem for cash.
- An extra year of coverage with the purchase of a Protection of Care Plan.
- Early shopping hours to help you avoid crowds.
- Extra discounts on select prescription drugs.
Note that there are two ways to take advantage of this offer. Your choice determines whether you redeem the offer in a club or online, and whether you receive a gift card or e-gift card:
- Enter your email address on the offer page. Then, Sam’s Club will send you an email that you can bring to your local club. This will allow you to redeem the offer in the club and receive a gift card.
- Click on the blue “Join Now” button on the offer page. Then, you will be prompted to follow steps online. This will allow you to redeem the offer online and receive an e-gift card.
