A few weeks ago I wrote about if the Sam’s Club Advantage Plus membership is worth it. To recap, a plus account adds “eValues”, which are digital coupons, to your account. You log into your Sam’s Club account online (or at an in-store kiosk) to see what’s available. From there, you are able to email or print the items on the list. All you need to do is buy the items and the discounts appear at the register. According to Sam’s Club eValue FAQs, “eValues means $300 in guaranteed savings. With eValues, you have the opportunity to save an additional $200 a year on top of the savings you already enjoy.”
Checking back on the eValues page, I now have $378 in “savings”. Unlike last month, I am noticing a few useful items that I would actually buy. This would include $2 off paper towels and $3 off toiletry products; none of which I would have bought during my next trip.
I guess a $5 savings is a start. I only $15 more in eValues to go before I recoup my costs and two more months until I renew my membership. Will I choose the Advantage Plus membership again? If the eValues do not become more relevant to my shopping; probably not.
Here’s a PDF of the eValues page. Keep in mind, a lot of the items listed have restrictions such as “you may choose 1 of the following 5 eValues”. An example of this would be the Pampers Cruisers diapers. You can choose sizes 1-6 and save $3 on any one. However, you cannot buy size 5 and 6 and expect to save $6.
I will be posting another update after I obtain some more eValues. Have you found savings with Sam’s Club eValues?
