sams200bGroupon has brought back their Sam’s Club membership deals, which come around a few times per year and offers a deeply-discounted membership. There are two options.

The $25 option includes:

  • 12-month Sam’s Club membership (retail $45)
  • Household member card
  • $25 discount off first in-club purchase of $25+. (Total must be $25 pre-tax.)

So as long as you buy $25 of stuff at Sam’s Club, your net cost is effectively free ($25 minus $25).

The $25 offer automatically loads to your membership account and it will discount your first in-club purchase of $25 or more. Redeem within 60 days after joining. Offer only works in club on a register or by using Scan & Go on the Sam’s Club app. When you check out, the discount appears between the list of purchased items and the subtotal amount. It will be referenced as “INST SV.” Purchases of alcoholic beverages, tobacco, milk, fuel, pharmacy, gift cards, memberships or shipping costs are not included in this offer. Other restrictions may apply.

The $55 option includes Sam’s Club Plus Membership (Retail Value is $100):

  • 12-month Club membership + 1 Free Complimentary Membership
  • 2% Sams Cash on qualifying in-club purchases**
  • Free shipping. Exclusions apply.
  • Free curbside pickup.
  • Early shopping hours starting 8 a.m. Hours may vary by club.

This deal is for new memberships only, as defined as follows:

Not valid for membership renewals, for those with a current membership, or those who were Sam’s Club members less than 6 months prior to January 11th, 2022.

Some folks like to rotate a year with Sam’s Club and a year with Costco or BJ’s Warehouse, as both usually offer new member deals regularly.

Save even more on your Groupon with a cashback shopping portal. Many offer new customers bonuses if you make a qualifying purchase, including Swagbucks ($10 bonus), MyPoints ($10 bonus), Rakuten (formerly eBates) ($30 bonus currently, varies), TopCashBack (varies), and BeFrugal ($10 bonus). So you could sign-up and stack this Groupon to trigger the bonus. I have cashed out of all of these in the last 12 months.

  1. Seems like a good deal. I see plus members get free shipping, any thoughts to replace Costco with plus membership?

    • Sam’s Club also offers at-store pickup, which is something that I like these days which Costco doesn’t offer. You don’t have to search for parking and navigate a crowded store. You just shop via app, park in the designated stall, and they bring out your big cart full of toilet paper, etc.

  2. BEWARE of this Sam’s club offer. I fell for this over a year ago and it took months of e-mails to finally get the free offers and when they charged my credit card after a year to renew my membership, it took months of e-mails and phone calls and I was never refunded the money but finally was given a gift card after four months. I will never deal with Sam’s club customer service again.

  3. Thanks for posting this – I was actually hoping for one of these deals to show up soon (I like to switch between Sams and Costco).

    A random tip to avoid any hassles down the line: once your account is set up, go into the renewal settings and turn off Auto Renew so you don’t forget and get charged later. That’s always my first step with these things.

  4. As the other comment said, same for me. It was such a hassle to get what i was promised and wasn’t worth my time. I did exactly what the voucher said but I didn’t get no credit or anything, egiftcard, whatsoever and so I had to chat to Sam’s Club customer service and it is NOT worth my time!
