We do not see a savings in going to a Sams Club. It is just the two of us, no pets to buy food for, it takes us forever to use up a gallon jar of mustard and such. We have a Family Dollar, Dollar General and Freds store here in town for paper goods, cleaning supplies and such. I have to drive 30 miles one way to the Sams Club. A previous employer paid for my Sams Club Card and we renewed it for a couple of years after I left the company, but going just once or twice a year was not worth it to us. Usually, what we bought, we ended up giving half of it to the kids and their families, so WE were not saving any money...........

If you apply for the Costco American Express card, your membership is free however yiu will have to pay an annual credit card fee. I think it's $50 or $59. It was the exact same price as a Costco membership so it was a wash plus every Fedruary you get a rebate check you can either cash at Costco or use as a credit towards purchases.

Our renewal at Sam's Club was $40, as I recall. We have a Sam's very close by.

I think in general, a person has to shop at one of these places enough to spend about $800 or so per year just to break even. If I spend $800 and save 5%, I have got my $40 back.

On the other hand, we bought a television set at Sam's Club just before Black Friday and saved a couple hundred dollars.

It was one of those really, really rare instances where Sam's Club reduced prices an additional amount to beat the competition. No one ever had that TV on sale at that low of a price - ever. After the weekend, the price went back up by $200 at Sam's Club. At Sears the price was almost double (on sale??) But TV's were flying out of that store on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Keep it in mind if you need a TV, while you are picking up some Member's Mark Tuna Fish.

Unrelated, but one thing about buying TV's at Costco is that they will automatically double the manufacturer's warranty at no additional cost to the buyer.

I bought my 60" flat screen there which came with a one year warranty and got the second year free. Knock on wood, I haven't had to use it, but it's nice having that peace of mind.

They are also *very* good about returning anything you buy there, regardless of when you bought it and what condition it is in. I've never had any issues returning anything there at all.
