Why You Should be a Member of a Wholesale Club

Have you been on the fence about joining a wholesale club? Perhaps you’re worried you won’t purchase enough to get your money’s worth after you pay for the yearly membership. Rest assured, wholesale clubs are some of the best and easiest ways to save money. With a huge variety of brand name items at wholesale prices, what you pay for a membership is likely to pay for itself through insane savings during your first trip! Not to mention the hot summer deals going on right now at America’s top wholesalers.


Costco offers two types of memberships: their Gold Star membership costs $60 annually and their Gold Star Executive membership costs $120 annually. The main differences between the two memberships are the perks. The Gold Star membership allows you to shop at any Costco location worldwide. The Gold Star Executive membership includes this and more, like annual 2% rewards on eligible Costco and Costco Travel purchases and extra benefits on select Costco services. You have the flexible option of choosing whichever membership suits your budget and needs best all while you get access to amazing savings at their stores.


Costco is offering amazing summer deals right now and the member-only deals cycle every month, so you’ll always have new opportunities to save. They have all sorts of items on sale, in-store and online, like major appliances, back-to-school supplies, sheets and home decor, tech like laptops and TVs, clothing, food, toiletries, and more! 



BJ’s also offers two types of memberships. Their Inner Circle membership costs $55 and gives you access to savings in BJ’s stores and on their website, BJ’s members-only coupons, complimentary membership to another member of your household, and 3 add-on members for only $30 annually. Their other membership option is called the Perks Rewards membership and costs $110 annually. This option includes all of the Inner Circle benefits, plus 2% cashback on your purchases, opportunities to earn double or triple cashback during certain special events, and BJ’s Travel Benefits. 


BJ’s is having their Red Hot Savings Event right now, which boasts crazy deals on everything from electronics and furniture to home goods and apparel. 


Sam’s Club

Sam’s Club, like Bj”s and Costco, also offers two competitively priced membership options. Boasting the lowest yearly membership prices, their base membership is $45 annually. It gives you access to the savings in their stores and at Sam’s Club gas stations as well as their MasterCard which gives 5% cashback on gas, 3% on dining and travel, and 1% back on everything else. You’ll also have the option to add up to 8 add-on memberships at a discounted annual price of $40 each and access to free tire repair, battery testing, and wiper blade replacement in their Tire and Battery center. Their other option, the Sam’s Plus membership, is $100 annually and offers everything the base membership does plus cashback rewards, free shipping, early morning store access, free select prescriptions, and discounts on glasses and contacts. Also, you can add up to 16 members at the discounted $40 annual rate. 


You can also get sneak peeks at monthly savings events ahead of time. During August’s Savings Week (Aug. 1-9) you can save up to $100 off select grills, $7 off Under Armour backpacks just in time for back-to-school, $100 off Roombas, $200 off a Samsung Smart TV, and more!
