Sam’s Club Changes Membership Proposition

Sam’s Club has announced that it is “simplifying” its membership structure by reducing the number of types to two: Club for $45 a year, a membership level formerly known as Sam’s Savings, and Plus for $100.

Sam’s touted those charges as the lowest membership fees in the warehouse club channel.

The retailer also is lowering membership for additional Club memberships to $40, it stated.

The company added that it is boosting the value of its Plus membership with free shipping on most items sold online, including almost all of its Member’s Mark products.
