Since it first began in 1983 Sam’s Club has become known for providing amazing discounts on several notable goods and services to its members. Sam’s Club founder is Sam Walton, who is also the founder of the discount department store chain Walmart. The discount membership store, which bore its founder’s first name began in Midwest City, Oklahoma and since 1983 has grown to become known not just nationally but internationally having branched out in Canada as well. To date, Sam’s Club has become the second highest-grossing discount warehouse membership club, right behind Costco.
As for what could be purchased through Sam’s Club the sky is really the limit. They have discounts on everyday items to specialty items. These items are usually sold in bulk qualities but still adding up to a fraction of the cost of what would be paid for in a regular store. In order to purchase items at Sam’s Club, someone must purchase one of their memberships which makes it possible for them to either buy stuff physically in one of their warehouse stores or online through their website.
There are two different types of memberships through Sam’s Club to choose from. They both have different membership fees. Sam’s Club Member is a basic membership that costs $45 annually and is ideal for someone who is just starting out with Sam’s Club. It is a good way to see what they have to offer but keep in mind restrictions on discounts will apply with this version. Sam’s Plus may cost $100 annually but it includes every discount plan that is available through Sam’s Club. That would include things such as discounts on eyeglasses and prescription drugs. Plus offers free shipping on all products purchased through their online store as well.
