Advantage Membership Rules

Membership: Membership is subject to any and all rules adopted by Sam's Club, and these rules may be amended from time to time without notice to or consent by the Member. Sales tax will be charged on Membership where applicable. Memberships may be terminated at Sam's Club discretion. Children and two other guests are welcome in Club, but only Members can make purchases at Sam's Club.

Membership Cards: Your Membership card is valid at all Sam's Club locations. Please show your card when entering a Sam's Club and when checking out at a register. Report a lost or stolen card to your local Sam's Club Membership Desk. A $40 annual Advantage Membership includes two cards. A personal card for you and a card for a household member over 18 years of age. You must pick up Membership cards at the Sam's Club location of your choice. Membership cards are non-transferable and before issuance you will be asked to present your driver’s license or a state issued photo ID.

Renewing Membership

Membership Renewal: The Primary Member must authorize renewal or cardholder changes, including additions or deletions, and is responsible for the account. Members receive a renewal notice by mail (unless you are set up with automatic renewal on Sam's Club Credit). You may renew the Membership by mail, at any Sam's Club, or online at SamsClub.com. Renewal within 60 days of your expiration date extends Membership for 12 months from the expiration date. Renewal after that point is in Sam's Club sole discretion and extends Membership for 12 months from the renewal. See Sam's Club rules for details. Members with Sam's Club Credit will be billed automatically for renewal unless otherwise specified. New card(s) will not be issued at renewal unless you upgrade your membership to Sam's Club Advantage Plus. Please keep your current card.
