We love Scan & Go! Here’s why…
If you don’t like waiting in the checkout line to pay, you’ll definitely want to download the newly updated Sam’s Club app as it now has the awesome Scan and Go feature right inside the app!

Check out this Scan & Go review from one of my sidekicks..
“I hate to admit it, but I’ve always been a Costco shopper… until today! After hearing about the Sam’s Club Scan & Go App, I decided it was time for me to get a membership and check it out. With less than 25 minutes to run in and out (including signing up for a membership!) before having to pick up my son from school, I was amazed at all that I was able to get done in such a short time-frame!”
