Look out Amazon! Walmart just announced its plans to offer free shipping to Sam’s Club members.

Sam’s Club memberships have simplified from three tiers to just two, the Sam’s Club membership, or the Plus membership , which offers more perks than a standard membership:

  • Sam’s Club membership (formerly Sam’s Savings): $45 per year
  • Plus membership: $100 per year

At just a dollar more than Amazon Prime’s $99 annual fee, Sam’s Club Plus memberships offer cash back on purchases, discounts on fuel and some prescriptions, and battery and tire repairs, alongside other benefits and NOW it includes FREE Shipping.

Will Sam’s Club now offer free two-day shipping like Amazon?

Not at this time, no.

In fact, there are still some restrictions to free shipping. Curbside pickup items, groceries, and products purchased via a third party won’t qualify for free shipping benefits.

Is there an order minimum for Sam’s Club free shipping?

Plus members: No. There are no order minimums for Plus members with an active membership. Some restrictions apply.

Sam’s Club members/Guest members: For Club members with an active membership (and guests with no membership), shipping costs will apply for most items based on size, weight, shipping method, and delivery address.

How do I know if I’m a Sam’s Club Plus member?

  1. Look at your physical membership card— or through your Sam’s Club App if you don’t have a physical card. If you’re a Plus member, your card will have a “Plus” label.
  2. Login into your account or register your member number to a new account. Go to “Your Account” > “Membership.” Next to “Membership Type,” it will say either “Club” or “Plus.”

Is two-day shipping on the horizon?

While we can’t speak for Walmart, the retailer has also announced some of its 63 shuttered warehouses will become Sam’s Club distribution centers (the first center is expected to open in Memphis, Tennessee, sometime this spring).

With strategically placed warehousing in its supply chain, who knows? In Walmart’s efforts to keep up with its retail archenemy – Amazon, Sam’s Club two-day shipping could potentially be here sooner than we think.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
