Sam's Club

Join Sam’s Club right now, and the wholesale club chain will give you $48.88 in freebies on top of your membership.

That’s $93.88 worth of stuff for $45, folks.

The deal

Taking advantage of this offer will cost you $45, the usual price of the cheaper Sam’s Club membership option. But you’ll get a lot more than the membership itself for your money.

You will also receive the following for free:

  • Family Pizza Combo: This is a family size meal available at in-house Sam’s Club Cafes. It includes a 16-inch pizza, 2-liter bottle of Coca-Cola or Diet Coke, six chocolate chunk cookies and an order of cheesy breadsticks with marinara. It normally costs $13.88.
  • $25 in movie credits from streaming service Vudu: This freebie comes in the form of a unique voucher code that will be emailed to the same email address you use to activate the Sam’s Club membership.
  • $10 Sam’s Club gift card

To take advantage of this deal, visit the “Get a free movie night on us!” webpage of the Sam’s Club site and click on the photo that says “Join Now.” Then, click on the $45 membership and fill out the form to sign up for the membership.

If you prefer to redeem this offer in person at a local club, print the offer webpage and take it to the membership desk.

The fine print

This offer is available only to new members, according to the fine print.

If you’re already a member, skip over to “7 Clever Ways to Save Money at Sam’s Club.” Or, if you are uninterested in paying to become a member, check out “6 Ways You Can Shop at Sam’s Club Without a Membership.

If you are interested in the membership offer with $48.88 in freebies, note that it’s available only between May 8 and June 7.

Also note that the freebies themselves come with expiration dates of sorts. For example, the free family pizza combo is valid only for 30 days after it’s added to your membership account (which will happen within 72 hours of when you activate the membership).

Visit the Sam’s Club webpage for this membership offer to see the rest of the fine print — or to take advantage of the deal.
