Sam’s Club started the festive season this month by offering hundreds of new items and thousands of dollars in members-only savings.
“Our members should have access to the best brands and best prices every day. That’s what we're giving them,” noted Charles Redfield, EVP of merchandise at Sam’s Club, the warehouse club division of Bentonville, Ark.-based Wal-Mart Stores Inc. “Not all members’ holiday shopping routines are the same, but they expect value, quality and excitement from Sam’s Club – whenever, wherever and however they shop. We’re prepared to exceed their expectations.”
One of the ways the retail plans to do that is with the Sam’s Club Instant Savings Book, which through Nov. 27 will provide $4,100 in savings on 100 items in-club and at SamsClub.com to all U.S. members. There’s no need to clip any coupons, since Instant Savings are automatically loaded onto each membership card.
Additionally, Sam’s Club recently introduced 50 Extreme Value Gift Cards in clubs and at Samsclub.com that save members as much as 20 percent on lifestyle and restaurant gift cards. Among the participating brands are national and regional restaurant chains, Elizabeth Arden’s Red Door Spa, and AMC Movie Theatres.
Since the chain’s clubs will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, the Sam’s Club Black Friday Savings Event starts in-club at 7 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 29, with breakfast (available while supplies last) and savings on top-rated smartphones, Smart TVs, video games and consoles, speakers, jewelry, toys, and other items. SamsClub.com will offer exclusive savings and free shipping on Black Friday items from Thanksgiving Day to Nov. 29.
Also, during Black Friday weekend, 495 Sam’s Club locations will honor the smartphone trade-in program. Once accepted, the trade-in value of a members’ smartphone can go toward a new smartphone with a two-year contract. The difference in value will be applied to a Sam’s Club gift card, valid for purchase of any item in the club.
Nonmembers can receive up to a $40 Sam’s Club gift card with the in-club purchase of a Sam's Plus Membership ($100) from Nov. 29 – Dec. 1. Sam’s Plus membership benefits include early shopping hours, invitations to seasonal VIP shopping events and further savings on fresh grocery items, pharmacy and optical services.
Pricing and item availability may vary by location and in Alaska, Hawaii, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Puerto Rico and online. The Black Friday Savings Event circular is available to view online.
Sam’s Club, the nation’s eighth-largest retailer and a leading membership warehouse club, serves millions of members in 630 clubs across the United States.
