Shopping at a warehouse club allows you get more groceries in fewer trips — a true virtue during a prolonged pandemic. Now, Sam’s Club is making it more tempting to sign up for a membership.

Purchase a one-year membership to Sam’s Club for $45, and you will get a free $45 Sam's Club e-gift card. That essentially makes your membership free, minus any taxes you might owe.

This offer is available until Oct. 3, 2021.

To take advantage of this offer, sign up for a one-year membership online. Within about four weeks, Sam’s Club will email the gift card to you at the address you provide when signing up for the membership.

Just mind the fine print:

  • This offer only applies to the standard Sam’s Club membership (which costs $45 per year), not the Plus membership (which costs $100 per year and comes with more benefits).
  • You must join Sam’s Club online through the webpage that mentions this offer.
  • The gift card cannot be used to buy a membership or certain other services.
  • By taking advantage of this offer, you authorize annual recurring charges to any card on file for your Sam’s Club membership fee. So, be sure to cancel your membership before it comes up for renewal if you do not want it to be renewed automatically.
