If you have never shopped Sam’s Club, now is a good time to start (read on for a special deal!) Part of Walmart, Sam’s Club is a membership warehouse club.
Instead of stocking every item in every available brand, Sam’s Club merchants do their homework for members, stocking the right products and purchasing them in large quantities, passing on the savings to members.
The brands they do carry are always very good quality, including the Members Mark store brand. You’ll also find more recognizable brands such as Gorton’s, BirdsEye, Jose Ole, Tide, Downy, Shark, Kitchenaid, Cuisinart, etc. They consistently have the best prices on cleaning supplies and printer paper.
Of course, not everything at Sam’s is cheaper than at other stores, so you do have to comparison shop, but most things are priced so well that most of us are willing to have 18 tons of it sitting around the house for a while.
There’s also an optical department and tire and battery center, where members can save even more.
Sam’s Club also provides a variety of member benefits including special sales, bulk quantities (for example, instead of a 6-roll pack of toilet paper, you can buy a 24-roll pack), free health screenings and members-only savings on gasoline.
