Sam’s Club has a number of promotions available to help parents with the task of getting their kids ready for school. You can shop their Back to Class page here, and find checklists, pre-made care packages (if you have kids in college), tech deals, and more. If you are not already a Sams Club member, you can find info on membership benefits and pricing here.
Sams Club just held one for August to prepare kids for back to school, but they have another free health screening coming up on September 8th. This one will focus on Diabetes. You do not have to be a Sams Club member to take advantage of these free events!
Let Sam’s Club Shop for You
If the transition has families short on time, Sam’s Club can actually shop for them. By submitting an online or mobile “Click ‘n’ Pull” order by 5 p.m., Sam’s Club can have a Back-to-Class checklist ready for pick up at the member’s local club at 7 a.m. the next day. Members can also get students campus-ready with shoppable videos that speak to highlighted items’ sustainable, long-lasting features at SamsClub.com/backtoclass.
24/7 Free Tech Support
Thanks to Sam’s Club Tech Experts, students will not stress over laptop, TV or digital music player set-up and maintenance. When Sam’s Club members dial 1-877-758-4346, they receive free assistance for any television, home theater, digital music player, camera/camcorder or computer purchased at Sam’s Club. With expert tech support available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, Sam’s Club Tech Experts are available even when pizza delivery is not.

This backpack includes all of the items listed above, and they are value size packages. The backpack itself has room and padding to pack around a laptop or netbook, and still leave room for books and supplies. The rest of the products are all high quality (Sharpies highlighters with at least 2 of each color, Pilot G2 pens, legal pads and enough legal pads to last a year). This Supplies Care Package would be a great addition to any home office, if your kids don’t need it all for school!
