Sams Club Membership Deals & Why to Shop at Sam’s Club!
Sam’s Club has been making some big changes in the past year or so which has really changed the way you can shop there and not only is it a great value with all of the savings they offer on their products, but they are making it easier than ever for busy families with all the conveniences they are offering for shoppers.
4 Reasons Why Shopping at Sam’s Club will Save You Time
Save Time with Sam’s Club Scan & Go App for Self Checkout
Last year, Sam’s Club released their Scan & Go app (for iPhone & Android), as a self-checkout option, but it is way better than the self-checkout lines at grocery stores. It can save you so much time as you can totally skip the lines and pay on your phone with the app! How is that possible? The way it works is that you can scan all the items in your cart using the app to scan the barcodes and then you can pay right thru the app in the store when you’re done shopping & scanning and not have to go thru the checkout line at all. You’ll just show your digital receipt on the app to the checker at the door as you’re leaving the store & you’re good to go. This makes it so nice on those busy weekend or after work days or if you just need to pop in for a few items and don’t want to have to wait in line.
Save Time by ordering online & it will be ready for pick up at the store
Sam’s Club also has another big time-saver with their Club Pickup program. You can order everything you need online at your convenience and then you can drive to Sam’s Club & all your groceries will be ready for you to pick up. You can then bypass the register by checking in & paying on the Scan & Go app (mentioned above), pay at the kiosk inside or select Sam’s clubs will have a drive-thru area where you can get your groceries.
The best part – there is no fee to use this service! It is available to all Sam’s Club members, unlike the other pickup & go services at grocery stores. I love this type of service to save time during busy weeks when it seems like there is just not enough time in the day to go to the store. It also makes it so much easier when you have sick kiddos or sick yourself, but of course, you still need groceries. Or for moms of young children and the thought of having to unbuckle all the kids & head into the store is so daunting, this is such a great option (wish it had been around when my girls were little).
This Club Pickup program can also save you money as you stick to your budget & your list (as much as I love browsing the items they have for sale in the stores, when I’m on a strict budget, it’s nice to have this option to really help me stick to the list)
Easy Reorder Option
Sam’s Club has another big timesaver with their Easy Reorder option. You can go online & quickly reorder items you use regularly. These can be quickly & easily selected & then shipped right to your house if you don’t want to have to leave your house at all for those times when you just really don’t have the time or energy to head to the store. There are definitely products that you know that you will buy over & over as it’s the best place to find those savings, so I love that you don’t have to put any thought into coming up with that list over & over and can just select those items you buy frequently & have them shipped directly to you. You can also use this Easy Reorder option with the Club Pickup & just reorder the items you use frequently & then pick up at Sam’s Club – they’ll have it all waiting for you, no shopping in store needed!
Buy in Bulk to Save Time and Money
We love the fact that you can buy in bulk at Sam’s Club for the items your family uses consistently. It saves you time so that you’re having to do less shopping by buying the things you need in larger quantities and then just splitting them up when you get home. We love to buy in bulk for snacks for school especially – we’ll buy Goldfish crackers, Cheeze-It crackers & more & then I put my girls to work with big bowls & scoops & they fill up individual baggies to keep in our pantry for school, park trips, etc. It is much more cost-effective than buying smaller boxes or individually packaged bags and it’s a time-saver to not keep having to go to the store for those items every week.
Sia’s aunt runs an AirBNB in the Puget Sound & she loves to shop Sam’s Club for her bulk shopping needs too for her AirBNB. She finds that she saves time by buying her food items & pantry staples in bulk so she is making fewer trips to the store every month. She also has been able to freeze items she needs on a regular basis to save time & money by buying in bulk & paying less than she’d pay for smaller portions.
Sia’s aunt has also found some awesome seasonal & specialty items at Sam’s Club that she can buy in bulk. Her favorite item are the Sam’s Club brand Sea Salt caramels that are much cheaper than she would find anywhere else & she can keep these on hand to provide for guests at her AirBNB as little treats.
I love that Sam’s Club is offering so many options to save the day for busy families – so you can still save money by shopping at Sam’s Club & taking advantage of all the savings on your favorite products & buying items in bulk, but you don’t have to give up conveniences & time with so many great time-saving features.
Even if you prefer to shop in store (that’s my preference when I have the time because I can see all that is offered & the fun, unique seasonal items), Sam’s Club is still a great option because the crowds are less, at least here in the NW, so that makes it so much easier to find parking easily, navigate the store & take your time as you check out all the items on your shopping list & the fun seasonal items they have on display. The checkout lines typically do not get too long either, so you can be in & out faster with quick purchases, even if you choose to go thru the lines instead of using the Scan & Go app.
