Experience The World Of Sam's Club At Next Week's Open House

To some, member’s only warehouse store Sam’s Club is kind of like a semi-secret society of savings and free food samples. That may or may not be true, but you can find out for yourself next week when the retail chain tries to get its hooks into more members by hosting a three-day open house.

Unlike other Sam’s Club open houses, non-members will not be charged a 10% premium on their purchases and will instead pay the same prices as existing Club members.

The catch? If you want to make a purchase, you’ll need to fill out a form at customer service to get a temporary membership card.

If you feel like seeing what Sam’s Club is all about without paying the annual fee, pop into any of the Clubs between Aug. 6-8.
