Sam’s Club Offering $45 Giftcards For Scan & Go Promo Error

A few months ago Sam’s Club had a scan & go promotion where you could get $45 offer your first order. Some people were able to stack deals and come out well ahead and for others the promotion just didn’t work at all. For those who tried to do the promo and it didn’t work correctly Sam’s Club is sending out mailers offering a $45 gift card. To receive the gift card you need to have received the mailer and bring it with you along with your membership card in club. Obviously this is highly YMMV, mostly just posting so people keep an eye out for the mailer and don’t just throw it out.

I got the 45 initially but again received the card last night.

The promotion worked fine for me at the time and I still got a mailer. Guess that’s a windfall for me.

The mailer does look like junk mail, so keep an eye out. I took my mailer to my local Sam’s Club — not sure they had seen one before, as their computer didn’t seem to recognize the code in the cashier instructions. They were able to figure out some way to give me the GC anyway.

Typical Walmart. Give you a coupon for their mistake. Coupon does not work.

Well it looks like I forgot to update my address on my Sam’s club membership and it got sent to the old house (thanks USPS informed delivery)

I have got this. I was about to throw it away thinking it’s junk 😊. The funny part is that I was able to use that promotion online even though it failed with scan and go at store . So it’s double dip!

Doc, this is why I love your site. Because you posted this (fast) I was able to go back through my trash and find $90. I always use your affiliate links and support the site as much as possible. Thanks for everything you do!

P2 got it yesterday as the membership is in her name. She almost threw it but luckily I had a look at it before trashing.

Received mailer yesterday and first thought it was more promotional mail from Sam’s Club. Bring mailer, photo ID and Sam’s card to the customer service desk for a free $45 GC!

Be sure to closely check your Scan & Go receipts. I have found that Sam’s mistakenly charges tax on some Scan & Go items that are not taxable (in Texas, at least), like one of the variety packs of Italian-style cold cuts they sell.

When you go through regular checkout (either self-checkout or with a cashier), these items ring up correctly without tax.

Just checked informed delivery and I should get one delivered today. Hopefully it comes sometimes my mailman doesn’t deliver all junk mail.

How do get one of those mailers

It was sent automatically.

Guessing those that got them joined around the time Sam’s likely discovered people were double dipping the $45 Scan & Go credit online, and in store. Their remedy was blocking one or the other, but many had issues just getting the intended $45.

So, I imagine it was sent out based on when you joined. If you didn’t get one, you probably didn’t join Sam’s during the right time-frame or with the right promo code.
