Sam's Club Membership Deals: What You Need to Know

When it comes to shopping for a big family, nothing can compete with warehouse stores such as Sam's Club or Costco. Filled to the brim with savings, a cafe, and samples, the only stipulation is that you have to be a Sam's Club member to shop at the store. Normally new memberships can cost anywhere from $45-$100 a year for a plus membership, however, it seems like there are always Sam's Club membership deals happening. Why pay full price for an annual membership to the warehouse club when you can get instant savings?

How much does it cost to join Sam's Club?

It currently costs $45 a year for the Club membership and $100 a year for the Plus membership. The basic membership contains the following perks:

  • Instant Savings
  • Sam's Club Mastercard

The Plus membership card contains all that plus:
