deal on slickdeals today. get the membership, plus $10 gc, chicken and cupcakes for only $20. i still see NO need to do a shop for a SAMS membership. if you want the membership...you can get it for "net free" without having to work for it. getting the FREE membership and you can still do the "return" shops out there that pay a fee.
Birdy, the original link was for a $45 gift card when you buy the $45 membership. I got a $10 gift card from customer service when I downloaded the app. The chicken and cupcakes are different perks.
The $45 gift card offer with membership is available in-club as well. I got the offer in my ValPak mailing recently, plus their website has a way to email yourself a code that you could give them when signing up in-club. When you redeem it in person, there is nothing on the receipt which says that you got it, and the shop terms do not say that you cannot use any offers when signing up. You have to sign up for auto-renew to get the gift card, but you can easily turn it off after you receive it.@hbbigdaddy wrote:
I posted 2 different offers seen. First one was $45 GC (return of your cost of membership). This was another offer. Either way, my point is...don't do work for something that is basically free. I'm sure your time is more valuable than to spend it filling out a report for the MSC when it's unnecessary and you gain nothing from doing so.
Also, the $45 gift card be used at either Walmart or Sam's Club.
Oh, and you can join as a new member if you are a household member on another membership. I have a card through my friend's membership and was still able to join as a new member.
It's the same membership with an additional card for a household member. BJ's and Costco do the same thing.
