Isnt it only $20 for an entire year? I think thats what I paid for it. I guess if you wanna give it a test-run this is a good deal.

Uh, the cheapest is getting the student rate where you pay $40 and get a $15 sams club (works at walmart too) giftcard back. Maybe you paid $20 for a year back when they first opened.

Sam's Club has this policy (taken from their site):

"We will refund your membership in full on or before the expiration date, if you are not completely satisfied."

After being a member for ~15 years, last year I moved and their was no Sam's Club near me. I canceled my membership due to the move, and they still gave me a refund of the year's cost.

not close enough to make it worthwhile.

does anyone have this business membership vs the regular "advantage" membership? if so, what do you show to prove you're a business?

i'd love this, if only to stock up for those 10 days. there aren't any close to me either but i can make the trip once or twice

@w00tgurl: the regular membership and the regular business membership are essentially the same, except the business members can go to the stores at earlier hours (before it opens to everyone else). The plus memberships for non-business also allow you attend in early hours. They also give you savings every now and then on items -- for example, we buy a lot baby formula and one week, we got $10 off a container of formula. The $60 difference is worth it as long as you shop regularly enough to recoupe your expenses -- we've saved about $150 in the past 6 months with it.

My only issue with Sams Club is that they do not accept Visa credit cards.

@techstorm: There is a wonderful work-around for that! If you have a paypal account, you can get a paypal debit card for free -- or at least you used to -- and you can use it to spend money from your paypal account. BUT, if your funds in your paypal account are out, you can set up a back-up source. I tied my Visa card to my paypal account, and can use my Paypal Mastercard/debitcard at Sams club, and it drafts the funds from my Visa card into paypal and then to the merchant. It's entirely free and very simple too. PLUS, if you have money in Paypal and you don't want to wait to have it deposited into your checking account, you can get the money from an ATM with your PIN or spend it with your Paypal Debit.

@techstorm I use my Visa debit card all the time at Sam's Club, run as a credit card. I think the days of "Discover card only" are over.

@1graham: you can use a visa as a debit, but it certainly won't work as a credit card -- at least it didn't about a month ago
