A trip to Sam’s Club can be overwhelming, but sometimes you simply just can’t beat their bulk prices! And at this popular warehouse, there are a few other product categories that go beyond the obvious stock up items. We’re here to help you plan a successful trip to get the most bang for your buck.
While prices may vary at each location, we’re sure that this guide will help you make purchases that actually save you money.
1. Paper goods
Stock up on paper good at Sam’s Club where they carry rock bottom prices on their own brand, Member’s Mark, as well as big name brands like Bounty paper towels and Charmin toilet paper! Plus, you can save even more whenever these items have Instant Savings available. You can’t go wrong buying in bulk when paper products never expire, so these are great items to stock up on!
As an idea, you can grab these highly rated Member’s Mark Super Premium Paper Towels (15 rolls, 150 sheets per roll) for the regular price of just $18.24 in-club or online, which equals just 81¢ per 100 sheets!
If you’re not a frequent Sam’s Club shopper, you may be surprised to know that they offer a one-stop Tire Shop, unlike any other large retailer. They have a huge stock of competitively-priced tires with an array of different brands to choose from. Plus, when you buy tires with your Sam’s Club membership, you’ll get the best “all-in” price, or they’ll match it to give you the best deal!
Their unique “all-in” tire installation also includes 24/7 emergency roadside tire service (for three years from the date of purchase! 😱), road hazard protection, lifetime tire balance, rotation, and flat repair, waste tire disposal, plus free tire mounting, valve stem, and tire pressure monitoring system reset.
Hip Tip: Shopping for more than just your car? Sam’s Club also has big savings on specialty tires including ATVs, UTVs, lawn mowers, golf carts, tractors, and more!
3. Baby wipes (& select diapers)
You can score awesome deals every day on Member’s Mark baby wipes and diapers at Sam’s Club. For instance, be sure to look for these super highly rated Member’s Mark Premium 1,152-count Baby Wipes regularly priced at $19.96 per box, which is just 1.8¢ per wipe! Plus, be sure to read the reviews as some members claim they work better than name brands!
And, the nice thing about buying Member’s Mark products is that Sam’s Club offers a satisfaction guarantee and will refund or replace any item that you find unsatisfactory!
You can also save big on name-brand baby wipes and sometimes diapers, especially when there are Instant Savings available. Large boxes of Pampers wipes regularly cost around 2¢ each, but pair the bulk pricing with Instant Savings when they’re available (such as $10 off whenever you buy two participating Pampers items), and you can snag wipes for as low as 1.4¢ per wipe – a stock up price!
4. Snack foods
Got kiddos at home who live for their after-school snacks? Or a household of hungry teens? Sam’s Club’s snack deals are on point, from their exclusive organic applesauce pouches to Nabisco snacks or their 40-pack of Honest juice boxes! Look for deals with Instant Savings to save more!
For instance, you can grab a 40-count pack of Lance Crackers for around $6.88 every day at Sam’s Club – or around $5.40 whenever there are Instant Savings available! Considering that an 8-count pack of these crackers regularly sells for $2.50 each at Walmart, you’re much better off stocking up at Sam’s Club!
There are tons of snack options to choose from at Sam’s that make perfect on-the-go bites, school lunch fillers, or class/sports team celebration treats.
5. Rotisserie chicken
If you’ve never been to Sam’s Club, you’ll want to sign up for a membership just to try their delicious 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.
You’ll be pleased to know that Sam’s Club also makes their rotisserie chickens fresh daily. We also found that their chickens are significantly larger than any other grocery store, giving you more meat to eat and even more bang for your buck than at most other top retailers.
Hip Tip: Make our team fave Keto Buffalo Chicken Soup from Hip2Keto with your rotisserie chicken!
6. Eggland’s Best eggs
Eggland’s Best large white eggs are a great deal at Sam’s Club, and we found that they’re not even available at other top retailers like Costco. You can scoop up an 18-count carton for just 16¢ per egg at Sam’s Club, compared to Walmart which will run you 22¢ per egg! 🥚
That’s a savings of $25 for every 500 eggs when you buy from Sam’s Club. Plus, you can save even more and snag these eggs for around $2.49/carton when there are Instant Savings available!
Oh how I love a good deal on bacon! 🥓
At Sam’s Club, you can snag THREE 1-pound packages of Member’s Mark Naturally Hickory Smoked Bacon for just $10.98 – that’s just $3.66 per pound!. This is a sweet deal compared to most grocery stores – and even beats Costco’s bulk pricing on their Kirkland Signature Thick Sliced Bacon, which regularly sells for $13.49. Time to cook up some bacon & eggs!
8. Party food
Sam’s Club can make it seem like you spent hours in the kitchen prepping for a party when all you really did was pick up some gorgeous pre-made food in store! They offer an assortment of grab-and-go trays with budget-friendly prices, we love these veggie trays averaging less than $2.50 per pound.
They also carry this deli meat assortment running you less than $5.50 per pound, which it’s almost unlikely to make them any cheaper on your own — so you’re saving time AND money!
And we can’t forget about dessert, since no party is complete without a spread of sweets! Sam’s Club is our go-to place for delicious treats like a variety Cheesecake under $15 or a New York style cheesecake for just under $13. That’s a huge saving compared to similar cheesecakes we found elsewhere!
9. Sports drinks
Stay thirsty to save money and save BIG on bulk drinks at Sam’s Club, like this variety pack of 28 12oz Gatorade bottles which regularly sells for $12.98 – just 46¢ per bottle (this is a penny less than Costco’s regular price of these drinks)! Also, be sure to watch for Instant Savings where you can grab these packs for even less!
Hip Tip: Have a long road trip coming up? Avoid the costly drinks at gas stations, and fill a cooler with some ice and your favorite bulk beverages from Sam’s Club. We guarantee you’ll save lots of money and time along with having extra spending money on things that really matter.
10. Cleaning products
Doing some spring cleaning or wanna disinfect your house? Stock up on store brand cleaning products like these highly rated Member’s Mark Disinfecting Wipes Variety Pack at Sam’s Club. You can grab this 4-pack of Wipes for only $8.98 every day, which is less than 2.9¢ per wipe.
