Groupon has a Sam’s Club Plus membership deal where for $30 you get the following:
- One-year Sam’s Club Savings membership ($45 value)
- Complimentary membership card for a spouse or other household member
- $10 e-gift card valid online or in-club. Allow 5-7 days for delivery of e-gift card.
If you subtract the $10 gift card value, you are getting a 1-year membership for $20 net. Not bad. I don’t see a hard expiration date. There is also an alternative option where you pay $15 more and get a package of coupons “worth $100” including a free rotisserie chicken ($4.95 value), free dinner rolls ($5.95 value), and free croissants ($5.95 value). Seems a bit too vague for me, but if you love Sam’s Club food items it might be worth it.
They are getting a bit more strict on what it means to be a “new member”:
Offer valid for new Sam’s Club Members only; not valid for those with a current membership or those who were Sam’s Club members less than 6 months prior to March 13, 2017. If you need to check your renewal date, call 1.888.746.7726 and choose option #2, then option #1. Please have your membership card or statement on hand. Offer valid for U.S. Sam’s Clubs only; not valid in Puerto Rico locations.
Remember that you can save even more on your Groupon with a cashback shopping portal. Many offer new customers bonuses if you make a qualifying purchase, including eBates ($10 bonus), TopCashBack ($10 bonus, you see it after entering e-mail), and BeFrugal ($10 bonus). I have cashed out of all of these before.
