Sam’s Club is launching what it has dubbed “Shocking Values,” daily deals available on its website with discounts as much as 60% off its regular retail prices. The Wal-Mart division announced that it is the first wholesale club retailer to offer an online daily deal program, which members can find on its site beginning at 9:00 a.m. central time each day by visiting www.samsclub.com/shockingvalues.
In an email response to an inquiry, a Sam’s Club spokesperson told HomeWorld Business, “Shocking Values is an online offering that allows us to deliver an extreme ‘treasure hunt’ for our members. We have a buyer assigned to this program, hand-picking items based on what members are interested in, top trends and our most popular shopping categories. While there may be a few Shocking Values SKUs that can be found in clubs, most will not be available in our clubs. Shocking Values deals are for a limited time with limited quantities. And, remember, these are extreme value deals, so the savings for Shocking Values are exclusive to the Shocking Values program.”
Members can also find Shocking Values on the Sam’s Club mobile app, the retailer stated, or they can receive daily e-mail notifications through an opt-in mailing list.
Deals are for a limited time in limited quantities, the company pointed out.
“Our members consider each visit to their neighborhood club and SamsClub.com a treasure hunt for unexpected savings, and Shocking Values is a new extension of that experience,” said Jamie Iannone, president and CEO of SamsClub.com. “These daily deals increase the value of a Sam’s Club membership and provide savings that members won’t find anywhere else.”
