I tapped the "Scan & Go" tab in the app but don't see the scanner icon.

This can happen if you haven't granted the Sam's Club app access to your location. The app needs to detect that you're in the club to use Scan & Go checkout. Please check your phone settings to make sure that the Sam's Club app has access to your location

For your security, you may be asked to physically present your credit or debit card to an associate or at the self-checkout register to complete your purchase. You can scan the membership barcode and the order barcode to transfer your cart contents instantly to the register to complete payment. Just use a physical credit card to pay and you're ready to go.
