This post shows you how to buy groceries at Sam’s Club. If you’re new to the United States, you will need to find all the ways that will help you save money.
Sam’s Club is a membership club, meaning you can enjoy lower prices but you need to buy in bulk or in bigger packs of goods. You cannot buy a single 2-liter bottle of soda, you need to buy six! You cannot buy four pieces of paper towels, you need to buy a pack of 24!
If you prefer to watch, check out the video below:
Sam’s Club has two tiers of membership: Club and Plus. The Basic Club membership costs $50 per year while Plus membership costs $110.
Basic membership is great if you think you will not be buying a lot of things from Sam’s Club. But if you anticipate spending at least $300-$500 monthly, then it’s best to opt for the Plus membership. the membership fee looks expensive but we pay for our membership fee through Sam’s Cash, which you can earn by buying eligible items.
Of all the perks listed below, Sam’s Club Plus membership is worth it because of free shipping and Sam’s Cash. We are a family of five, so we definitely shop a lot at Sam’s Club.

Use Scan and Go
If you don’t want to wait in line for a long time, use Scan and Go! Download the Sam’s Club app on your Android or iPhone. You will essentially scan all the items you bought and pay on the app. You need a credit card for this to work! I don’t mind doing it because I don’t need to line up at the counters. As soon as I am done, the Sam’s Club app sends a QR code that an employee at the gate will scan.
