    Do you have to be a SAMs member for the free screening? Thanks.

    • pandoraaddict

      Not required for a screening, pharmacies in Sam’s and Costco don’t require a membership.

    the Kmart freebie is a joke. We where there one Saturday and remembered about the freebie. Asked the cashier and she handed my kiddo a piece of candy. It’s not even a trial size bag. I guess its ok if you are already at Kmart but if you are going there just for the freebie…it’s a waste of your time and gas.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Sorry to hear that Ginger. Thanks for sharing your experience at your store. 🙁

  4. Rikki

    The past few Saturday’s my Kmart has had small bags of cheese popcorn or various flavors of cotton candy!
