Last week I was checking my email when I noticed a Groupon offer for Sam's Club. Since I've always been teetering on the edge of getting a card anyhow, I checked out this Groupon offer. The price was $45 (standard membership fee) ..the difference was what you got for that $45. In addition to a year long Sam's Club membership you received a $20 gift card, and 4 vouchers for FREE deli food. Over a pound of turkey, Ciabatti rolls, black bean dip, and a 10 inch apple pie were included. The free merchandise more than paid for the membership fee!
So I spent the afternoon at Sam's Club. I didn't go crazy..just buying things that I needed anyhow- this time in bulk. And I redeemed all the free food vouchers. Enough food for a week. Then I went outside. The convenience store next to work has gas for $3.73 this evening. Sam's Club had gas for $3.33 a gallon, so I filled up the tank as well.
Will I continue to shop at Sam's Club? Well, I won't be one of those people with pallets of merchandise in the checkout lane but I do think that they do offer great prices on items I need to stock up on anyhow (detergent, deodorant, soap) and the grocery prices were reasonable (I just don't want/need 10 pounds of Cheerios or chips at a time). Maybe I'll pop in once a month and stock up. I'll definitely continue buying gas there.
