Sam’s Club is great for those who love to buy in bulk. I mean I love those cubic yards of toilet paper and containers of laundry soap that require a strongman to lift them. Ah, nothing like American shopping excess.
But, those Sam’s Club memberships come with a price. A small price of only $45.00 for all those savings you’re going to make, but, it is still a cost we have to incur.
So, what if I could tell my Average Joes how to get a new Sam’s Club membership for free? And, possibly even make some money for getting one?
Now, do I have your attention?
I have written previous blog posts about coupon stacking. Coupon stacking is the art of using multiple coupons for the same product and in the process, earning double rebates, triple rebates or even a free product in return for our precious coupons. Now, the trick with coupon stacking is that often manufactures will note something to the effect, “only one coupon per item” or, something similar which handicaps the vendor from accepting multiple coupons. Manufactures are simply trying to prevent coupon stacking and for good reason. They want YOUR money.
But, we, the Average Joes, like our money. And, we want more of it.
BUT, on occasion, an opportunity will present itself where a manufacture or corporation is testing or promoting a new coupon or promotion and they release the campaign too multiple vendors to see where their respective advertisement dollars are working the best.
If we, the Average Joes are vigilant enough, on occasion we will see these opportunities emerge where a promotion is being run through multiple outlets, and we can then take advantage of this unique opportunity to profit on our behalf, before the manufacture realizes the error and shuts down the respective promotion.
This is arbitrage in its simplest form; someone is selling a widget for X but we realize it is actually worth Y, we buy or sell the widget and thus WE profit on this price differential.
So, let me walk you through a coupon stacking/arbitrage opportunity I have found with the goal of getting a new Sam’s Club Membership for FREE, using our available resources.
Load Your Apps-
You will need to load four or more apps onto your phone or smart device. If you don’t have them yet, please use my referral codes and both of us will get a bonus. Smart phone apps are the mechanism that we use to take advantage of many of the arbitrage opportunities we find. They are our tools of the trade so too speak.
App One – Check your Ibotta app, currently they have a membership rebate for $10.00 loaded into the app. Purchase the membership, then scan the receipt into the Ibotta app. If you do not have an Ibotta account, use my referral code, qffkbsh and you will receive a $10.00 bonus.
App Two – Acorns is offering a $10.00 rebate into your investment account, once you purchase your membership with a linked card. The trick here is you will need to download the Acorns app and link a credit card. If you do not have an Acorns account, use my referral code, FMJYHF, set up an account, and you will receive a $5.00 bonus.
App Three – DO$H is offering a $20.00 rebated into you DO$H account. The trick here is need to use a linked card and the same linked card as the one used in Step Two. If you do not have a DO$H account, use my referral code, i2elo5Nj6P?f=r set up an account, and you will receive a $5.00 bonus.
App Four– SHOP KICKS is offering 2,500 points for a new Sam’s Club membership. This is equivalent to $10.00. For this app to work, you will need to photo and submit the receipt within the app. If you do not have a Shop Kicks account, use my referral code, COOL557908 set up an account, and you will receive an extra 250 Kicks bonus.
Now, walk into your nearest Sam’s Club, walk up to the customer service desk and tell them, “I would like a new membership….” Ten minutes later, your membership is in hand. Now, before you go onto your shopping spree, sit down and scan the receipt into the above apps that require it. Now, that is done. Get your industrial size buggy, grab a Coke and go to shopping!
For the above noted Apps, the possible rebates you can earn sums up to $50.00….Or, a $5.00 PROFIT on your NEW membership.
If your new to the Apps and use my referral codes, you profit another $20.00 on your Sam’s Club NEW membership.
In total, you could walk away with as much as $70.00 for getting a new Sam’s Club Membership, within the rebates noted, dispersed throughout your various apps.
That is not too shabby!
Sam’s Club is offering a $30.00 credit if you apply for and get their branded credit card. I did, and applied the credit to my purchase of the Sam’s Club membership. I then walked away with $80.00 for my $45.00 membership.
Now, What to Watch Out For:
- Corporate promotions change, ergo, watch your apps and make sure the above rebates are noted and ACTIVE within the apps before you make your purchase.
- Make sure you link your card of choice for your Sam’s Club purchase within each of the apps that require a linked card.
- It is possible other apps are running this promotion, and you could make even more money off of a membership. If you know of another app or promotion, please let me know so I can update this article and spread even more money saving news.
- Please, please, please use my referral codes to set up your apps. This is how we keep the site ad free.
