Hot Deal on Sam’s Club Membership through Groupon

If you have been thinking about getting a Sam’s Club membership, you can get a fantastic deal through Groupon right now!  This Groupon deal is for a one-year membership plus a $20 Sam’s gift card and $26 worth of free food vouchers for $45!  The food vouchers are for free roast turkey, ciabatta rolls, black bean dip, and apple pie.  (There is also supposed to be $80 worth of additional discounts but I can’t decide if these are exclusive to this offer or if it’s their regular monthly deals.)

Go here to read more on this Sam’s Club Groupon dealThanks, Money Saving Mom!  Note: Liz commented that she did a similar deal for a Sam’s Club membership through Groupon and it auto-renewed, so just keep that in mind.

I am still loving having a Sam’s membership, especially the Click n’ Pull service!  I am a little bummed that they have recently stopped carrying C&H sugar and replaced it with beet sugar (there’s been a couple of other product changes like that lately), but I still find that for my family, it’s been a good place to shop since I don’t have time to clip many coupons or shop a bunch of different stores like I used to.
