      The fine print says $45 back after purchase of eligible products.

      • Patricia Kleinmaier

  2. Arthur

    Links not working

    • Kimberly (Stylish Sidekick)

      Hi Arthur. They are working for me on Chrome and via mobile and the app. You may want to try a different browser to see if that works for you. It may take a few seconds to load. I hope this helps.

    • Denise PARR

      won’t work for me

  3. Ana

    Does anyone know if I can use the instant saving on gas ?

    • R

      No, fine print says: Eligible products are regularly priced items sold in-club or online at and by Ineligible products are any items already discounted by Instant Savings, as well as alcohol, tobacco, Sam’s Club membership fees, gift cards, milk, pharmacy prescriptions, eCigarettes, fuel, postage stamps, lottery tickets, auctions, Photo Center, service plans, or taxes.

    The link does not work.

    • Lana

      Go straight to and you will see the offer.

    • Kimberly (Stylish Sidekick)

      Hi Lana! It may take a couple seconds for the offer to load. It did work for me using Chrome and via mobile and the app as well. You may want to try a different browser.

  5. Kathy

    To qualify for offer, purchaser must use a valid credit or debit card and will be opted into Auto Renewal upon first transaction in club. By enrolling in the auto renew program, you authorize Sam’s to charge the card selected an annual recurring charge in the amount of the, then standard, membership fee for all active memberships on your account.

    • Tiffany

      Is Auto Renewal mandatory? Can you opt out right away?

      • Deanna

        Yes. You can go online to your acct and change it.

  6. Jeff

    Can we pair this with other promos from Ibotta or similar apps?

    • E

      I would like to know this as well. Ibotta has a special code you need to give then upon sign up.

    • Wendy

      Not ibotta(since it has its own code)..ck51 yes

      • E

        Ckout51 had its own code too

        • WENDY

          not mine I just clicked and it says upload recpt.

  7. Kelly

    Can you still do this deal if you’ve had a Sam’s membership before?

    • Wendy

      Says new membership by***

      • Jointsandjoists

        Is there a waiting period between membership? Like if I haven’t been a member for a year does it count as “new” or is it a lifetime thing?

        • KM

          I’d like to know the same. I can’t create a new membership because I already have one online. But when I go to renew there’s no place for the code. Looks like you have to go in to the store to verify if it will work. I haven’t been a member since July 2018 so it should work for me but I don’t know what there “new” means.

    • Patricia Kleinmaier

      My membership had expired 3 months ago and it went through. Used different email and phone number.

  8. Taryn

    Do you know how long I have before I have to redeem this? My membership expires March 30th. Can I get the email now then bring it in and sign up in March?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Taryn! Here is what is listed in the details – “New member must join before February 28, 2019 to receive offer. – $45 offer must be redeemed within 30 days of membership activation.” You can always give customer service a call with any further questions! 888-746-7726

  9. Dana

    Hmm. I am confused. I did this and received a $5 e-gift card by email. Am I still getting the $45 in savings as well? That’s why I signed up..

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Dana! You should receive the $45 off of your first purchase. Here is what I found in the details – “*The $45 incentive will be automatically deducted through Instant Savings at checkout when you purchase at least $45 in eligible products. ” You can always check in with customer service if you have any issues! 888-746-7726

      Hope that helps!

      • Amanda Fay

        I’m wondering if anyone knows what the “eligible products” are! Thanks in advance for any insight!

  10. Megan

    Is it safe to assume this couldnt be used in optical? Do they operate as a separate business?

  11. Shannon K

    Does anyone know what specific products that you would need to purchase?? Anyone have a list?? I’m a Costco member but if I can get Sam’s basically for free then I’m in!

    • WENDY

      fine print says: Eligible products are regularly priced items sold in-club or online at and by Ineligible products are any items already discounted by Instant Savings, as well as alcohol, tobacco, Sam’s Club membership fees, gift cards, milk, pharmacy prescriptions, eCigarettes, fuel, postage stamps, lottery tickets, auctions, Photo Center, service plans, or taxes.

      • Patricia Kleinmaier

        It worked on my sale items of clothing immediately after signing up. We weren’t not expecting it to be loaded that fast but couldn’t pass up the desks!

  12. Jean

    Link does not work.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh bummer. The links are still working for me. Maybe let the page set for a moment to see if it will load up for you. If still having issues, be sure to try again in a different browser. Hoping that might help!

      • Jean

        Got it to work on Explorer. Thanks!

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Oh good! You’re so welcome, Jean! Thanks for the update!

    • meredith

      They do not work for me either. Right-click then copy the link and open a new tab and paste it.

  13. Melanie

    I should not apply under th regular membership correct? I don’t see anywhere it talks about $45 back.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Melanie! Be sure to click through the link in the post! I still find those details to list the offer!

  14. meredith

    Can anyone find where to enter the promo code online? They emailed me the code and it says “Bring in the promo code below to redeem or join online.”

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hmm, Maybe try giving them a call – 1-888-746-7726 Hoping they may be able to help!

  15. KM

    • Offer is for new memberships only (no renewals). Members rejoining must have been in expired/deleted status for at least 6 months.

    I had to use their chat to get help. Here’s the answer above. They also had to remove my email from my old account in order for me to do it online. I have a new number now.

  16. Aim

    I was member till August 2018 so this time my husband signed up online. He got $5 e giftcard email and we went instore for physical card. Got so many carters pks on clearence and it did deduct $45 from the total.
    Thanks so much

    • sharon downs

      That’s what I need to do. How much are the carter’s packs? TIA

    • Marcia

      Aim, how long did it take to get the ecard? It says I got one in my account, but it never showed up anywhere in my email.

  17. DeeBee

    Can you use the 45 online? I don’t have a Sam’s near me….but i do enjoy shopping at

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! It can be redeemed online as well!

  18. Pat Kleinmaier

    Got one last evening. And my $45 instant saving was uploaded by the time we checked out. Alonso there was a scavenger hunt promotion where we won free bananas, a rottesserie chicken and a pizza combo from the deli! Great deal. Thanks for posting. Also my membership had only been expired 3 months.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Wow! That’s awesome! Thanks for sharing with us, Pat! You’re very welcome!

  19. Sarah

    Awesome thanks!!!! Going to try it

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, Sarah!

  20. Elva

    I wanna join online but I didn’t find a place to paste the promotion code

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hmm, I’m not finding instructions on where to enter the promo code online. I do find a customer service number you can call for more details – 1-888-746-7726. Hoping they may be able to help!

      • Eric B

        No promo code to use online. Confirmed with customer service. Just use the link in the email. The link is hard to see as it is not underlined but it’s there. Just click on the words and sign up once the link opens

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Thanks for the update! Good to know!

  21. Wendy

    I did this offer in-store today, got$45 of my order, did the treasure hunt, submitted for and got Ibotta and CK51… Awesome Deal!!!

    • Lindsey

      How long did it take for the $45 off to load to your new card?

      • wklsunflower

        instantly and the CSM told me the offer had to be used the day you activate your card..So had to be used today on anything other then sale, ciggs or alcohol.

  22. Karen

    I just want to let you guys know our girls, LOL that I just came from Sam’s club, to get my membership, however, I cannot receive the discount of the $45 because I had a membership to Sam’s club five years ago… She said that they’re kept in the system for 10 years so if it was over 10 years you can get it, if not you cannot… I just thought I’d let you know so you could pass that along…!! Thanks for the tip though, I tried…

    • wklsunflower

      Maybe try online, or go back when you can and try a email and alt phone number.(and hopefully you get a different girl)

    • Pat kleinmaier

      It says on the offer that you can’t use if havent been member in less than 6 months.. I didn’t realize but I had only lasped 3 months. Put it in your husband’s name if you are married. We usually switch.

  23. Jessica A

    Just did this online and immediately got the instant savings with my online order. Great deal! I used a new email and phone number since I previously had a membership.

  24. Catherine

    Before you get the membership download Dosh app put in my referral code CATHERD36 . when you insert a debit/credit you will get $5 in ur account. When you get the member ship an additional $20 in ur account. Seriously this is an amazing deal. Free membership and an extra $25. Also if u use ur card on every purchase there you earn 3% in ur account.

    • nicole

      hi, i downloaded dosh, and then did the sams club thing, but what do i hacve to do with the refferal code ? i didnt put it in! help can i add it ?

  25. Patricia Kleinmaier

    What is this dosh app ? I wouldn’t want to put my credit or debit card on some app.

  26. Dulce Gomez

    it does work I just put in my email they send me the promo code then I went to Sam’s club n pay $45 dollars today I went to buy some things i was supposed to pay 100 n some n then it went down to 72
    so it tells me in my receipt that I save 49.01

    • Dulce

      I pay the $45 dollars cash u don’t have to used a credit card or debit

  27. Nicole Flowers

    Do you get a second complementary membership with this promotion?

  28. Patricia Kleinmaier


  29. T

    I just signed up , but have not received the instant savings in my account . How long does it usually take ?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! You should find the offer to automatically apply at checkout when adding $45 or more worth of eligible items to you cart. Be sure to call in to customer service if you have any issues. Hope that helps!

  30. Anthony E Pearison

    You Basically have to get Food worth $45 i think its worth it!

  31. Anthony E Pearison

    3 days

  32. Angela

    How do u get the $45

    • Pat Kleinmaier

      It is loaded as a credit on your card. When you check out it automatically deducts 45$ from your total. I think you have to spend it all at once.

  33. John

    How do you know the $45 is available on your account? Is it just a guess when you check out?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! Sorry for any confusion. It seems this deal has ended, however if you had purchased the offer when available, the savings would be loaded to your account within 72 hours of account activation and would automatically apply at checkout on your first qualifying purchase. Hope that helps!

  34. Kadydid60

    My sister said that my niece called Sams and asked about the $45 membership deal where you get $45 off your total if purchased items. She said that she was able to get it. Not sure if they really knew what she was talking about or not. They may of just sold her the $45 membership. She hasn’t been to the store yet.
