I’ve been a Sam’s Club member for more than 13 years, but I haven’t used my membership as much in several years, as I have in the past 6 months. When businesses began shutting down in March, I figured out how to make my Sam’s Club membership work for me – and I see myself using it even more this fall and winter!
Besides the convenient location (it’s only 3 miles from my house), I really like the fact I can find most things I need at Sam’s Club – including a flu shot. It’s my current one-stop-shop.
My top reasons for going to Sam’s Club:
Scan and Go. My mom and brother discovered Scan and Go way before me, but I started using it over the winter and I love that I don’t have to go through a checkout line. I scan everything with the app as I’m shopping, and then I show the barcode as I’m leaving. It’s so convenient, my payment information is secure in the app and I get a digital receipt. I don’t have to deal with a register, pulling my card out, scanning all of the things at one time and zero lines at checkout.
A flu shot at Sam’s Club? Yes! I can take advantage of getting a flu shot during one of my short trips to Sam’s Club. You don’t even need a membership to do this! Their pharmacy can handle everything for all flu shot patients.. If you do have a membership, you can grab your must-haves from the health and wellness area of the club. (I’m also a big fan of stocking up on vitamins, hand sanitizer, and even the single-use face masks to have as a back-up in our cars when we’re out.)
Grocery pick-up. I realized they offered this last month; they bring it all to your car! Game. Changer. I’ve used it three times since I noticed it and I LOVE freeing up my Saturday mornings with just a quick trip to pick up my order!
The savings. I already meal plan. We’ve been meal planners since before we were married. We actually purchased our Sam’s Club membership a few months before our wedding because we figured out how much more we could save (compared to the cost of the membership.) We save on gas (it’s generally 10 cents per gallon cheaper than the cheapest gas station close to our house) and we save a lot when we are able to buy items in bulk. I buy a lot of meat in larger quantities and I may only buy that once a month.
Cold season items in bulk. I already dislike cold and flu season, but when I know I can stock up on what our household needs, I am glad I can get items at lower prices, and in larger quantities. Between 4 of us, we are in 6 different schools. That’s a lot of potential germs. I like that I can get large packs of tissue and bottles of hand sanitizer to send in with the kids (and to take to work). For the home I can get vitamins, cold medicine and the necessities we all use during the winter.
Of course, I also love all of the things I forget I need. Like a pack of 48 batteries. (I don’t think any parent can claim they didn’t run out of batteries at some point this year. And if someone says that, I don’t believe them.)
Flu season is upon us, and I have gotten a flu shot almost every year since I was pregnant with my son. The one year I didn’t get a flu shot, I ended up with the flu and it was not a fun experience. I get it so that symptoms might be lessened if I end up getting the flu. And I get it to help protect others from the flu. Getting my flu shot at the Sam’s Club pharmacy makes sense since I can pick up my groceries at the same time. It’s one stop, and it’s a quick process. Anyone can get a flu shot at Sam’s Club pharmacies, including the non-members, however, Sam’s Club members can get discounted rates through the pharmacy with the membership, which is also a great benefit.
