Try it...for free?

I've been tempted to try a Sam's Club membership for about a year now. As my children get older they are eating A LOT more. Anything that can be bought in bulk (especially fruits, vegetables, and dairy) is a huge help! When I broke down the costs for a membership it didn't seem like it would save us a lot though.

Today Living Social has a deal that is too great to pass up. If you don't have a membership at this time, get a one year membership for $45. While that may not sound so hot, this also comes with a $20 Sam's Club gift card and foo vouchers for an Artisan Fresh Rotisserie Chicken, Artisan Fresh Take-and-Bake Pizza, and Two Boxes of 6-, 12-, or 24-Count Artisan Fresh Cookies from Sam's Club (vouchers valued at $19.84). So with that deal you are *basically* getting a membership for $5 or so after the gift card and vouchers. I couldn't pass that up!

Use this link if you are interested in getting this deal (it is a referral link). I'll post a review of my first shopping trip once I go to see how much savings I feel there is in having a membership.

If you already have a Sam's Club membership, what do you save the most on? Do you feel as though you get a substantial savings each year shopping there?



  1. I have a Sam's membership, but am considering not to renew. We live 50 miles from the nearest Sam's so do not shop there enough to pay the $45 membership fee. Some items are much cheaper, but other items are cheaper at the local grocery with coupons. It might be worth it for a large family if you live close and do a lot of shopping there, but shopping for 2 there is not always a good choice.

  2. Our nearest Sam's Club is about 45 miles from us. We do travel to that city at least once a month. I'm hoping it works out to save us money but if not, we won't be out much with this deal!

  3. I don't know that you will find huge savings on fruits and vegetables. I save a lot on baking supplies (yeast is a steal), 25 pound bags of flour, things like canned olives, TP, protein bars, cans of V-8 juice - things like that. I don't typically think the fruits and vegetables are a good deal. Cheese and butter are also things I buy. I do not personally buy organics, so I don't pay attention to how many organic items they have. Gas is usually $.20/gallon cheaper at Sam's than other locations here.

  4. I've heard that about the gas, too, which would be another great savings! I'm excited to scope it out now that I have a membership!
