Sam's Club salutes military members with new membership offering

BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Members of the military can enjoy savings at Sam's Club with the introduction of a new membership offering.

The retailer said that when military personnel — including those active or retired, their spouses and civilian military employees — join or renew as an advantage member or advantage plus member, the company will provide them with a $15 Sam's Club gift card to each primary membership.

Proof of military identification is required and the offer cannot be combined with any other membership offers, Sam's Club noted.

"We're proud of the opportunity to give back to Veterans since they have given so much to us," Sam's Club SVP membership Mike Turner said. "As we strive to simplify the holiday season for members in every community we serve, Sam's Club salutes our military veterans with easier access to quality products and amazing savings."

In related news, Sam's Club once again is partnering with AMG Medical to give away free Hugo folding canes to military members at all Sam's Club locations from Wednesday through Friday, while supplies last to both members and nonmembers. To receive this offer, however, proof of military identification is required, the company said.
