At Sam’s Club, the savings can be found all year round — but one of the best deals we’ve seen so far is happening right now! For a limited time, an annual Sam's Club membership is 60% off for first-time members. And if you're looking for a few extra benefits, there's also a major deal on the retailer's Plus membership option. You definitely don't want to miss this rare chance to gain access to members-only prices on household essentials, fashion, groceries and so much more for just $20 for the whole year — especially with the holidays on the horizon!

Sam's Club Membership

Right now, you can score the first year of a classic Sam's Club membership for $20, which is 60% off. With a membership, you can shop the retailer's selection of products in stores and online and gain access to Sam's Club membership perks such as exclusive sale events, fuel discounts and cash back. This membership deal ends Dec. 20, 2023.

Sam's Club membership benefits

Wondering if a Sam's Club membership is worth it? Here's a closer look at some of the benefits you can take advantage of upon joining.

Access to members-only sale events: Sam's Club regularly runs "Instant Savings" events with exclusive discounts for members. Right now, there's an Instant Savings event running through Dec. 26.

Fuel discounts: High gas prices have nothing on you! Save when you fill up your car at select locations.

Complimentary membership: Once you join, a household member can sign up for free. That's essentially two memberships for half the price of one!

Sam's Club Plus membership deal and benefits

Sam’s Club Plus Membership

Sam's Club also has a premium Plus membership for $110 per year, but it's currently on a rare offer for $60 instead. Sam’s Club doesn’t typically discount this membership option — so don’t wait to grab it if you’re wanting a few extra benefits! This offer is valid until Dec. 20, 2023.

Here are a few perks that set Plus apart from the classic membership.

Free shipping and curbside pickup: Plus members don't have to pay for shipping for most purchases made online or in the Sam's Club app. They can also take advantage of free curbside pickup, which has a $4 fee for Club members.

Cash back: Plus members can earn 2 percent cash back on qualifying purchases (with a cap at $500 per year).

Pharmacy and optical savings: Looking to save on prescriptions? Sam's Club says it offers Plus members more than 600 generic brands starting at $4. Plus members can also score free shipping on contact lenses and save 20% on a new pair of eyeglasses.
