If you’ve been thinking about signing up for a Sam’s Club membership, now might be the perfect time to jump on the warehouse bandwagon. Sam’s Club has an instant-savings deal so good that it’s like getting it for free.
Anyone who signs up for a new standard Sam’s Club membership through Feb. 28 will earn $45 in instant savings for qualifying purchases of at least $45 in one transaction. Since a basic Sam’s Club membership costs $45 per year, the total savings you get by signing up pays for your membership fee. That’s a pretty awesome deal!
When you sign up for your new Sam’s Club membership, the company will validate your savings within 72 hours of activation. It’s important to note that you need to spend the $45 instant savings credit within the first 30 days of your membership. This credit will be automatically deducted at the checkout for all qualifying purchases.
Unfortunately, you cannot double-dip on your discount, since any items listed as a Sam’s Club Instant Savings item is not eligible for your membership credit. Other ineligible items include other membership fees, gift cards, milk, alcohol, tobacco products, pharmacy prescriptions, fuel, postage stamps, lottery tickets, Photo Center products, auctions and service plans.
So what exactly do you get with a basic Sam’s Club membership? According to the site, customers with this membership get access to extra offers on top of already low members-only prices. They also get members-exclusive prices at the gas pump in select locations; access to the tire and battery center, which offers free flat tire repair, battery testing and wiper blade installation; and add-on memberships at a discounted price.
