Non-Members Shop Free at Sam’s Club This Weekend

I knew it was about time for Sam’s to have a free non-member weekend because I was starting to think about purchasing a membership. :) (Happens every time!)  This Friday through Sunday, August 3-5, non-members can shop at Sam’s Club and pay no surcharge!  You will need to go to the customer service desk and a get a temporary membership, but other than a few extra minutes spent at the customer service desk, it’s exactly like having a membership.

I don’t have a Sam’s membership but I always take advantage of these free pass days.  I’ve found that not having a membership forces me to be more strategic about what I buy at Sam’s since I can only shop a few times a year.  I’ll try to share my shopping list and strategy for Sam’s Club later this week to show you what I’ve found to be the best deals there.

You can find out more here (about halfway down the page).

    What do you usually stock up on when you go to Sam’s?

  2. Don’t forget! I’m going to try to do this once a year too. Can you get gas with the card?

    • It’s a temporary, paper card that they give you, not one that can be swiped at the gas pump, so I don’t think so.

    • I was able to use it to get gas last time — you just have to ask the clerk to let you have the slip of paper back so you can use it at the gas pump!

  3. Carrie, have you had a chance to put together a list of good deals? I’m excited to shop there! Thanks for letting us know about it!
