Oh, Scan & Go, we L.O.V.E you so ❤️ !!!

If you’re tired of 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!

With Scan & Go, your smartphone is transformed into your own personal scanning machine that you can use to quickly scan your items, pay and skip those long lines! 🎉 It’s now incorporated into the main Sam’s Club App so you can take advantage of all the great features in one place!


Sams Club Scan and Go App

So many new features on the Sam’s Club app:

The app now has tabs at the bottom of the screen so you can easily navigate the app:

  • Home – See your Instant Savings* or shop new limited-time, exclusive daily Shocking Values
  • Scan & Go – Scan, shop, and pay for your in-club purchases from your phone
  • Account – Quickly find your membership card, order history, and account information.
  • More – Easily reorder your essentials, get directions and hours for your nearest club, and more!

*On the Home tab, click on the Instant Savings Book tab at the top to find all of the current Instant Savings deals for easy reference while shopping. You can even search for items you’re needing to buy to see if they’re on sale!


Sam's Club app

Scan & Go is SO easy to use, too! Here’s how…

Scan & Go helps you easily keep track of what you’re spending while you shop to help you stay within your budget – no more surprises! Plus, the tool is easy to use, so even your kiddos can scan items for you (and it will help keep them occupied! 😉). Just follow these easy steps –

  • Download the free Sam’s Club mobile app and click on the Scan & Go tab at the bottom
  • You’ll need to create an account, add a payment method, and enter your Sam’s Club membership number.
  • Head to your local Sam’s Club with your phone, open up the Sam’s Club app, and start shopping.
  • Scan each item’s UPC code as you’re adding it to your shopping cart.
  • When you’re done shopping, click to pay for your items wherever you are in the store – no need to head to the busy checkout lanes!
  • Show the digital payment receipt to the associate as you exit the warehouse.
  • That’s it – easy peasy!

A few tips:

  • Gift cards or cash rewards cannot be accepted as payment on the app.
  • There is a $750 pre-tax limit for the total purchase amount with the app.

On the fence? Here’s what Hip2Save Readers have to say…

I have used this feature a few times already. It keeps my card on file and I just scan as I add it into the cart. It helped me watch what I was spending and I was able to checkout and not get in the very busy lines. ( Saturday Afternoon in my store is crazy). They just scanned the barcode and that is it. Also have done the order on my phone and pickup; that is a good one to do also. Love this feature!


I’ve been using this app since the beginning of the year and I LOVE IT! It’s really great to have on Black Friday and this time of year, with the exception of the pharmacy, I haven’t used a register since!


I have this app and love it! It puts a smile on my face when I walk past the long lines right up to exit to get my QR Code scanned. Using the receipt from the app when returning an item was easier than keeping up with a paper receipt.


Loooooove this!! I downloaded the app when you first posted it. It is such a joy to shop now. No lines and super easy to use. I often take my elderly father who has very limited mobility to do his shopping. This has been wonderful for him knowing that he doesn’t have to wait in long lines! 

It’s a no-brainer! Grab the Sam’s Club app now…

    I LOVE Scan & Go! I wish EVERY store had an app like this!

    • Lacey

      I agree it would awesome if every store had one love it

    • duh

      Theft would prosper!

  2. dbld amb

    I love it too. Especially during the holidays when lines were out the door. My kids would laugh as we just walked out while people stood in line. Beware though, one time when i was checking out via the app it said there was an error please try again. I had to do try multiple times before it went through. Well then came the credit card statement and I was charged 7 times for same transaction. It was corrected after an hour on the phone. Just a heads up

  3. Sara

    One annoyance from installing the app is that whenever I tap an item link on Hip2Save, the link opens the app instead of the website. I tried everything I could think of, but I couldn’t find any setting on my phone or in the app that would stop that from happening, so I deleted the app. From now on, I will only download it when I need it.

    • Cbeths

      Why is it bad that it opens in the app?

      • Sara

        Apps don’t always have the information I’m looking for. The other problem is that my phone didn’t ask me if I wanted to open the link in the app or Chrome. Something about the app forced the link to open in the app. I don’t like that the choice was taken away from me.

        • duh

          Crybaby! Clear yur deafult!!! And why get a phone if u not gonna use the app? Carry around a laptop..i think you’ll love that!

          • Wow.

            That was beyond rude and unnecessary.
            Hopefully you don’t talk to people like this when face to face.
            Shameful.

    • duh

      Scan and go app is a standalone app different from the sams club app

      • duh

        I meant there is a standalone scan and go app

    Hello, does anybody know of any upcoming specials on a membership best new year in January?? 😳👍🤪, I know that it’s hard to predict the future, LOL

    • Happy New

      Lol Karen 😀

    • Kit

      They just had a membership groupon that ended in Nov or December. That included $35 in gift cards and $35 in instant rewards for the $45 including membership of course. I do not think they will offer another offer so soon.

  5. Jamie

    Also LOVE this app. Makes running in for a quick item no problem. Also I love that parking at sams is always so easy. I gave no regrets over not shopping at Costco

  6. Lynn

    One warning from my experience: if you have a clearance item, double check that the price is right using scan & go. Often I find that the price is not right and in order to pay, I must go through a checkout line. For everything else, I use the scan and go app though.

  7. J

    Can you enter Sam’s club by showing your membership card on the phone app?

    • Jamie

      Mine has never once looked at my membership card

      • Jamie

        Only at check out

        • J

          My store still does 😑

    • Kim

      They don’t require you to show your card at the door anymore, at least at the ones in our area.

  8. T

    If you download the Dosh app and linked your card, you get cash back when you use the scan and go app.

  9. Garfield

    I’ve always been fan of the app but the only problem is I have no receipt to use for cash back. Once I tried I ended up using 2 phones. So now I just get my receipt.

    • Kim

      That has been my experience too, I can’t use ibotta because I don’t have a receipt to submit.

    • Tina

      There is a place in the menu that allows you to get to your receipts. Once there, you can print, email, text, etc!

  10. Beth

    I haven’t downloaded the app, yet. Can an item be deleted before checking out if I change my mind and want to put it back on the shelf?

    • momof3

      Yes, absolutely. I did it today!

  11. Hill

    I’ve used this 3 times already and it is so easy and quick! No long lines for me!

  12. Emily

    I agree. So much easier and faster!

  13. cindyawarf

    Sam’s Club is forever trying to cut down on the amount of employees it has, the sample marketeers haven’t had a raise in over 5 years & there are no employee incentives. Scan’n go = more unemployment = more homeless so,leave those carts in the parking lot, don’t being one in with you, misplace store items, unfold those clothes & HELP THOSE EMPLOYEES KEEP THEIR JOBS!!!

    • Sweet 🍰

      Sounds like you’re just creating a mess. Just don’t shop at Walmart or Sam’s and shop at stores that value their employees.

  14. Tina

    My husband and I have been HUGE fans of the scan and go app since the day it launched in our Sams. HOWEVER…….. a few months ago our account was used to log into scan and go by someone else. That person then used the scan and go app to complete THREE $650+ transactions in a store 500 miles from our home…… and since they used the scan and go app, they were able to use my debit card because it was “saved” in the app. In the end, all is well- our bank reversed the charges, etc. but it meant getting a new debit card, putting on bank account on fraud watch and getting a new membership at our beloved Sams… several days worth of “trouble”. I don’t mean to deter anyone from using this app… but please be aware! Once we “recover” from the incident and start using the app again, we will not save our card info in the app. We will just put our card in before we start shopping and delete it when we’re done… it will still save a TON of time in store (we shop with 4 kiddos… every minute counts)!

    • Kristy

      I agree! I love the scan and go app however we had our $150 cash reward points stolen and used at a store not even close to us. Sams was great and refunded us the money but just beware when using the app

  15. muquee

    I have to have a paper receipt to turn into the office at work. Is there a way to print a receipt if you use the app?

    • S

      Yes, there’s an option to print or email your receipt.
