How to Get Double Cash Back From Sam’s Club This Week

It’s tough to land a discount at warehouse clubs. The prices are already low, and the national chains don’t accept outside coupons.

So, when a chain like Sam’s Club offers double cash back, it’s a rare opportunity to boost your savings at a wholesale club. And that’s what the chain is doing this week.

Sam’s Club is among more than two dozen retailers and other merchants currently participating in a double-cash-back Ebates promotion. This means that you’ll earn a handsome percentage of cash back — twice as much as usual — on online purchases from these companies if you shop through the Ebates site.

At SamsClub.com, you’ll earn 3 percent cash back. Now, that may not sound like much, but think of it as helping you recoup the cost of your membership even faster.

Further, if you go through a cash-back portal like Ebates every time you shop online, your earnings can add up quickly. And they’ll add up even faster if you pay for those purchases with a cash-back credit card.

My household uses one of two portals — either Ebates or TopCashback — and one of two cash-back credit cards on every purchase possible. And these two steps, which take virtually no time, let us pocket hundreds of dollars in what is essentially free cash every year. Then, we put the money in a high-paying savings account so we can get even more out of it.

If you don’t already use a cash-back portal like Ebates, go sign up for one. It’s free and fast.

If you don’t shop at Sam’s Club, don’t worry. You’ll find plenty of other retailers offering cash back through Ebates — more than 2,000 merchants, actually.

Those offering double cash back this week as part of Ebates’ current promotion include:

  • Ashley Home Stores: Offering 4 percent cash back as of Thursday morning
  • Dick’s Sporting Goods: 3 percent
  • GNC: 10 percent
  • Groupon: 9 percent
  • Kohl’s: 6 percent
  • Magazines.com: 42 percent
  • Overstock.com: 6 percent
  • Proactiv: 30 percent
  • Rosetta Stone: 12 percent
  • See’s Candy Shops: 8 percent
  • Sephora: 8 percent
  • The Container Store: 8 percent
  • The Honest Co.: 8 percent
  • Udemy: 24 percent
