Update: A reader left a comment saying they saw some promotional materials that advertised the Open House for the entire week, through Saturday, January 15. I think it behooves a call to your local Sam’s Club to see if non-members still have time to shop without an upcharge. The gift card promo has expired though.
If you wish you had a Sam’s Club membership, but don’t want to pay the fee, today’s your day. It is the tail end of Sam’s Club’s Open House, which runs through the close of business today, January 13. Non-members can make purchases today at the member rate, thus avoiding the 10% upcharge they typically tack on to non-member buys.
Also, if you are in the market for a Sam’s Club membership today might be day the day to buy one. If you purchase a Plus-level membership you’ll get a $25 Sam’s Club gift card or you’ll receive a $10 Sam’s Club gift card for purchasing a Business membership; offer is good only for in-club signups, but view the membership prices and benefits on Sam’s Club’s website. These gift card promotions are good only through the end of today, January 13. (Even if non-members can still shop through the 15th, I think this promo is done)
I just found out about this offer, at 1:36 pm on Thursday, which is why you are getting late notice of it. Personally, I may stop by to check their price on ground turkey (does it beat Aldi’s?) and pick up some milk.
Your turn: In the economic downturn did you drop a warehouse membership? Or, did you opt to get one as a money-saving measure?
