Sam’s Club Membership Bonus

Well, I managed to miss this when it happened but thankfully it is an on-going deal.  As part of their Veteran’s Day 2011 offers, Sam’s Club is now offering a $15 gift certificate to military folks who purchase a Sam’s Club membership.  The membership may be either the $40 Advantage membership or the $100 Advantage Plus membership.

This special offer is available to active duty or retired military personnel or their spouses, plus civilian military employees and their spouses.  It does not define “civilian military employees” in the press release.

I always do a lot of math before purchasing a warehouse club membership.  This extra $15 could make the math work out differently if you are unsure if you would benefit from a warehouse club membership.  And if you already join Sam’s, this is a great bonus next time you renew your membership.

    This isn’t a Veterans Day offer. The $15 gift card isn’t available to veterans. According to the press release, you have be to be retiree or on active duty to get it. The only Veterans Day offer that Sam’s had was for the free canes for veterans.

      It is a offer that was started as part of their greater Veteran’s Day campaign. Yes, it is not available for all veterans, just those who are still on active duty or those who retired from military service.

    If you’re a disabled vet and have an I.D. card that allows you to shop at the commissary, px and utilize MWR, you can get the military bonus at Sam’s Club. It worked for me

    De’Andre, the clerk at customer service (Virginia Beach Sam’s) tried to tell me this offer expired “yesterday” but when I asked to speak with a manager, De’Andre was suddenly able to give me the card. I came home and checked online again to make sure I hadn’t made a mistake … was De’Andre lazy, or is he keeping cards for himself? Just saying …

    Why don’t they off all vets free membership? With all this stuff going on with the VA hospitals all over the US is a disgrace to the VETS. I know the insurance the Sen. and House of Reps had these problems they would be throwing a fit! SAM’s should do this for free for us as a common courtesy. I know all the Gov. people have such good insurance they don’t care because it’s not happing to them. They should be put on the same insurance that the VETS use and I bet something would get done then BET!!!


    You can’t be a “veteran'” if still on active duty. if you are on active duty, you would be a service member. Sam’s Club disenfrachises veterans.
