Sam’s Club Has the Coolest New Member Perk

This fun twist on grocery shopping has us running to Sam's Club stores.

There’s so much to love about Sam’s Club. The bulk discount store carries goods that run the gamut from food and drinks to auto and home decor. If you haven’t yet stepped through the doors, this is among the best places to do party shopping. Need a crate of artisanal cheeses with a case of chardonnay? A bundle of tasty New York strip steaks for grilling and every ingredient you need to make a potluck-worthy chocolate cake or two? Sam’s has you covered.

But the latest craze that has new Sam’s Club members running to the store is its money-back Instant Savings deal. New members who spend the $45 for a membership will get that money back, and trust us, it’s a deal you need to take advantage of.

Why You Should be a Sam’s Club Member

You read that right. For new members, Sam’s Club will give you your money back in the form of your Instant Savings account. That means you can redeem that $45 for anything in the store, save for alcoholic beverages, tobacco, milk, fuel, pharmacy, gift cards, other memberships or shipping costs. Still, $45 is a lot when it comes to the weekly shopping haul, so it’s definitely worth the membership.

It only takes about 72 hours for your money to be transferred into your Instant Savings account, so you won’t have to wait long before filling up your cart. Like all great things, this offer does have an expiration date. It’s valid from January 27, 2020 through March 8, 2020, so you still have some time to get your shop on. If you don’t use your $45 within the first 60 days of your new membership, though, we’ll warn you the dough will disappear. You can sign up here.

If that isn’t enough to get you signed up, the membership at Sam’s Club comes with a range of benefits, including early shopping hours and, of course, one-stop shopping for a wide variety of deals.
