Speaking of paper products, you just can’t go wrong buying in bulk when they never expire, which is why you should also be taking advantage of their incredible Member’s Mark toilet paper prices the next time you’re in the club.

“Can’t beat the price and quality is the best!” – Amanda, Hip2Save reader

3. Sam’s Club Rotisserie Chicken is cheaper, bigger, & more delicious than all other grocers.

Sam’s Club Seasoned Rotisserie Chicken $4.98 ($1.66 per pound)

If you’ve never been to Sam’s Club, you’ll want to sign up for a membership just to try their delicious daily-made Member’s Mark rotisserie chickens! At just $4.98 per 3lb chicken, this is a steal compared to most other grocery stores (even Costco’s chicken is a penny more)! 😉

Marinated and seasoned with Lawry’s Seasonings, these irresistible chickens are roasted to a perfect golden brown. Enjoy them in pasta, soups, salads, or simply by themselves, these juicy chickens make weekday dinners a whole lot easier and so much more delicious!

Rotisserie Chicken, one of our favorites at Sam's Club

“We love the rotisserie chicken at Sam’s Club and get it all the time. It is delicious and like you said, always juicy – best rotisserie out there!” – Nora, Hip2Save reader

“I love Sam’s Club rotisserie chicken. Anytime I buy it somewhere else I’m always super disappointed with the regular grocery store one and realize they’re half the size and twice the cost!” – Callie, Hip2Save reader

4. One of the reader favorites at Sam’s Club is ground beef.

When we asked what readers love to buy from Sam’s Club, so many readers mentioned the ground beef. It’s full of flavor and offered at an affordable price! According to one HIp2Save reader, Becky, it’s the only kind that makes the BEST meatloaf!

5. Member’s Mark Organic Maple Syrup gives your breakfast tons of bang for your buck.

If you won’t settle for anything less than real maple syrup, Sam’s Club is going to be your best bet at scoring this sweet (and typically high-priced) grocery item for the best price! In fact, even Target’s cheapest maple syrup from their affordable Good & Gather line is still $4 more; ALDI, which is known for its low prices, still can’t even top this low price – and neither of them is even organic!

When you score the Member’s Mark organic maple syrup, you’ll get the very best sap from wild maples made by 5th-generation master sugar makers. Plus, there are no preservatives or artificial anything!

Sports drinks from Sam's Club

Other team and reader Sam’s Club grocery favorites include…

  • Cherry tomatoes: A giant container is $5 compared to the $3-4 of the small container at grocery stores.
  • Salmon: Great selection of wild caught and sashimi grade salmon — Hip2Save’s Monica almost exclusively buys her salmon at Sam’s!
  • Sport and energy drinks: The price per can is usually the best at Sam’s Club.
  • Kerrygold Butter: This keto staple is as good as gold (hence, the name), and you won’t find it cheaper anywhere else.
  • Orange juice: Hip2Save’s Liza is a fan of the Member’s Mark OJ, not only because it’s cheaper than Walmart’s Great Value juice, but it tastes better than the name brand!
  • Philadelphia Cream Cheese: Stock up on the 4-count 8-ounce block packs so you always have some on hand, and for less than the cost at regular grocery stores.
  • Coffee, Creamer, & Coffee syrups: Hip readers buy their coffee and creamer at Sam’s Club. Plus, the store has a decent selection of the popular Torani syrups, perfect for the festive latte season! Homemade PSL, anyone?
  • Baked Beans with Brisket: The Member’s Mark Baked Beans are packed full of flavor and are exclusively at Sam’s Club.
  • Pancake Mix: Tons of Hip2save readers swear Member’s Mark Pancake Mix is the absolute BEST out there.
  • Snacks: Readers love to scoop up Sam’s Club deals on chips and other snacks to fill their pantry.

  • Pickles: For just under $4 you can score a huge 46oz jar of Members Mark Petite Dill Pickles.
  • Tillamook products: When it comes time to fill the cheese drawer, readers say to head straight to Sam’s Club to restock on Tillamook products.
  • Hot dogs & Other Meat: Sam’s Club is a clear favorite with readers when it comes to where they shop for meat. Ground beef, chicken, steak, and hot dogs are at the top of the list!
  • Fresh-cut pineapple and other produce: Some readers shop at Sam’s Club locations with robust product departments. If the produce at your store is good, readers highly recommend you try some of the fruit and veggies, most notably, the pineapple.
  • Pre-made Salads: Sam’s Club’s affordable potato salad and chicken salad are especially popular with readers.

6. The Sam’s Club premade foods and bakery section has everything you need for a celebration!

When it comes to the bakery at Sam’s Club, it’s a no-brainer since their prices are lower than other grocery stores, and definitely lower than a boutique bakery, yet the products are ALWAYS delicious! Next time you have a birthday celebration, holiday soirée, or a party “just because”, start at Sam’s to savor the savings and impress your guests at the same time. We especially love the seasonal treats, like chocolate-covered strawberries, huge pumpkin pies, and much more.

Sam’s Club also has delicious prepared meals that can save you time and stress in the kitchen! Several Hip team members shared their love for the pre-made meals for easy weeknight dinners as well as simplifying the spread for large family get-togethers. Have anyone coming for brunch? Hip2Save’s Alli is a huge fan of their cinnamon rolls and says Costco’s just aren’t the same.

Hip2Save readers love the bakery and premade meals too! Many readers mentioned their favorites included the birthday cakes, frosted cupcakes, and salads like the Cobb Salad or the Southwest Salad.

7. At just 8¢ each, Member’s Mark Trash Bags are one of our favorites at Sam’s Club.

Member’s Mark Trash Bags 200-Count $16.89 (8¢ per bag)

Countless Hip2Save readers have said they’ll never buy trash bags anywhere else after scoring them for such a fantastic price at Sam’s Club! You can find the Member’s Mark brand in various scents like Lavender & Fresh Clean or stick to the original unscented. Regardless, you’ll only pay about 10¢ per bag which makes this one of the BEST Sam’s Club products!

Compared to Costco’s 200-pack of trash bags priced at $19.99 and Target’s Up & Up 120-pack priced at $16.79, we know you’re getting the best deal around! (And that’s no trash talk, it’s just real talk!) 😅

8. Member’s Mark Paper Plates are made in the USA & incredibly durable.

Always going through paper plates at home? Whether you host a lot of get-togethers, tend to gift neighbors goodies on disposable plates often, or your family just loves a quick cleanup after dinner, the Member’s Mark paper plates are sure to be the best price around! Compared to Target’s Up & Up plates, you’ll save over $5 buying them in bulk at Sam’s!

Not only are they affordable, but they can even go in the microwave and are also super durable with their advanced soak protection, cut-resistant, and grease-resistant abilities — they’re even made in the USA to top it off! It’s no wonder tons of our Hip2Save readers swear by them!

9. Another one of our favorites at Sam’s Club is the Member’s Mark Clear Cutlery which can easily feed an army on a budget.

Need some utensils to go with your disposable plates? Plenty of our Hip2Save readers are passionate about the quality and bang for your buck you get with their Member’s Mark Premium Cutlery, too!

With 360 individual pieces, that means you’ll have 120 complete sets to feed unlimited guests, a large event, or they’ll last even longer if it’s just you and your family.

10. Score over-the-counter Member’s Mark Allergy Medicine for over $15 less than other off-brands!

Most of us would never put a price on our health, but if you or someone you love struggles with seasonal allergies daily, just know there are affordable options on the market. Even Hip2Save’s Liza said her doctor recommended that she get her allergy medicine from Sam’s!

At Sam’s Club, you can score their Member’s Mark Aller-itin Loratadine Tablets (400-count) for around 12 bucks! Compared to 2 packs of Target’s 200-count similar allergy tablets at regular price and sold by their affordable Up & Up brand, you’ll be saving around $28 – relief for you and your wallet. 😏

“I would keep the membership for the price of OTC meds alone. I buy for several family members. Generic Zyrtec and Generic Allegra, generic Prilosec, probiotics, huge bottles of Naproxen Sodium or Ibuprofen that we divide up. Savings are tremendous compared to regular Walmart, Dollar General, or places like CVS and Walgreens.” – Lesa, Hip2Save reader

Monica from the Hip2Save team also shops for Mucinex and most other meds at Sam’s. They’re so much cheaper and come in large quantities. This is great for families because usually when one person gets sick, it’s not too long until the rest of the house gets it too!  🙈

Hip Tip: While we think this product is great and comes highly recommended by many of our Hip2Save readers, we aren’t doctors, therefore, before buying & using any medications always consult with your doctor first. 

11. Even the biggest Dawn fans are switching to Member’s Mark Liquid Dishwashing Soap.

If you’re a big fan of Dawn, you’ll want to start buying Sam’s Club Member’s Mark dish soap to make clean-up more frugal than ever! Plus, compared to Target’s Up & Up Dawn knockoff soap, priced at $7.59 and with 25 fewer ounces, Sam’s Club dish soap is the biggest value to make life sparkly clean. It’s one of our favorite Sam’s Club products.

“A loyal Dawn customer for years. Not anymore. This dish soap is just as great for a fraction of the price. Cuts grease and plenty of suds. A great product!” – Kathy, Sam’s Club Member 

12. Celebrate with unique Sam’s Club seasonal decor or items that can’t be found anywhere else!

Some Sam’s Club locations offer gasoline and it’s a preferred place to stop when Hip2Save readers need to refill their tanks. Many readers mention it being considerably cheaper than other fuel stations in their area.

“I’m in a really big city so there is A LOT of competition and our Sam’s is always the lowest other than a Buccee’s that’s 45 minutes away – Michelle, Hip2Save reader

    I love Sam’s Club and I buy over half of the things on this list. Even better than the rotisserie chicken is when they sell the chicken leg quarters from the rotisserie chickens. They don’t always have them, but they are only about $4 for a pack of four and I always buy some when they are in stock. My only complaint is about the cupcakes. They changed out the coconut one (which was delicious!) for cookies and cream so I don’t buy them anymore.

  2. Jennifer

    The plates shown are the small dessert plates. The bigger ones are significantly more expensive. They are excellent quality but have gone up in price a lot (the 300 count 8.5 inch plates are $22.48).

    • Trish (Hip Sidekick)

      Whoops, thanks for mentioning that, Jennifer! I’ve updated the details above! 🤗

  3. Angela

    As a life long North Easterner the term Organic Maple syrup makes us chuckle up here. The trees aren’t sprayed or touched by anything anyway we just tap them for the sap and boil it. It’s literally pristine forests tapped carefully nothing else. But the local sugaring producers can’t afford to get that fancy “organic” name slapped on the stuff. Maybe consider local syrup if you can instead of mass produced marketed stuff, and yes many small maple sugar operations ship.

  4. Janet

    I love their cinnamon raisin bread. It’s not baked in store, but is dense, moist, and filled with raisins, and toasts well. Yum!

    • Trish (Hip Sidekick)

      Sounds yummy, Janet! I’ll have to look for that on my next trip! ❤️

  5. Lolie

    Thank you for the list! I’m going to try a couple of items with the members mark brand since they are hip approved. I love to save money!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Woohoo! You’re SO welcome! We sure love saving too! ❤️🙌 Hope you are happy with their brand as well!

  6. Anne Heidorn

    The last few times I’ve been at my Sam’s Club, they are out of rotisserie chicken. The sign usually says it will be 1/2 hour wait for more. I don’t spend that much time there because I’ll buy too much! So, I haven’t been able to snag a rotisserie chicken in a long time. 🙁

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh bummer! Hoping they’ll have some ready and available for you to grab on your next trip in! 🤞❤️

  7. Bevie

    Pet food and pet supplies are a great buy also. Pay $5 more for a 25 pd dry cat food than the 15 pd bag at Walmart or grocery store

    • Trish (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for mentioning that, Bevie! 🙌💗🐾
