Today’s offer from LivingSocial is a one-year membership to Sam’s Club plus a $20 Sam’s gift card, and $20 worth of grocery items for $42. According to the Sam’s Club website, the Advantage membership normally costs $40.
I am on the fence about this deal and I am hoping you can help me make a decision.
I’ve never been a Sam’s Club member, but I used to shop there several years ago with one of my college roommates who was a member. The idea of buying in bulk for an apartment full of guys was appealing back then. I remember some items having decent prices, but not all items were priced better than what I could find at Walmart or Target.
I am not sure that I would get the value out of a Sam’s Club membership at this stage in my life. If I need large quantities of food for a family party or get together with friends, I usually shop at GFS Marketplace.
I kind of have a hang-up with having to pay to shop somewhere. Is this a valid concern, or is the $40 for a membership worth it?
I would love to hear what Sam’s Club members and non-members think of this deal. Please leave a comment and let me know if you think it is worth $40 for a membership at Sam’s!
For a limited time today, LivingSocial is offering a $10 Starbucks card for $5!
According to Reuters, the offer was to go live Tuesday evening for Starbucks card holders, and become available to the general public on Wednesday. Even if you aren’t a Starbucks card holder, you can purchase now.
Google Offers offered a similar Starbucks deal earlier this year that sold over 1 million deals.
To purchase this offer, visit the LivingSocial website.
Thanks to Jennifer from Green Bay Consumer for the tip on this deal!
