If you are looking for good deals on items you use often this is a GREAT place to shop. Sam's Club is a members only club that offers very good pricing on quality merchandise that you buy in bulk.
Membership fees are:
$35 For a business membership
$40 For a normal membership
$100 For a "Plus" membership
One time daily pass - 10% surcharge on purchases
Check their website at www.samsclub.com for further information.
The services we use most would be the photo developing (typically 12 cents for a 4x6 print!), the pharmacy, gas station, and the fresh meats. A visit to Sam's is usually good for an afternoon of shopping if we go through the whole store - you will find all sorts of treasures and great buys. Everything thing from laundry and cleaning needs to exercise equipment and electronics! In the frozen foods section they often have samples as well.
The biggest thing to remember is that they offer these prices due to buying in bulk. If you are single or just a couple you might have to be a little more creative shopping there and be ready to split things up into smaller packages yourself.
If you are hosting a party they have a wide range of deli trays and cakes as well. You will also find plates, napkins, cups.... all the essentials!
Have fun shopping and saving!
