The Sam’s Club loyalty card offers almost no benefits, but Mastercard does offer some benefits that frequent Sam’s Club customers can take advantage of.
In addition to the card type, the amount of cashback you receive is determined by the type of purchases you make with the card. Sams Club Credit Cards and Walmart stores accept any type of card and can be accessed online.
Sams Club Credit Card Benefits
Both cards offer a $45 credit when you make a purchase of $45 or more at Sam’s Club on the day the account is opened.
Sams Club credit cards duplicate your membership card so you don’t have to carry two cards in your wallet.
Cash access is available to Sam’s Club cardholders. You can visit any Sam’s Club or Walmart lane to access up to $100 of cash in $20 increments. Accessing cash is treated as a purchase (most cards charge a higher APR for cash advances), but you are limited to one cash advance per day.
If your card is lost or stolen, you are not responsible for any charges incurred.
Sam’s Club does not charge an annual fee for any of the cards. However, you must pay for a Sam’s Club membership to be a cardholder. Basic membership to Sam’s Club is $45, while membership to Sam’s Club Plus is $100.
Sam’s Club Mastercard Benefits
The Sam’s Club Mastercard offers all the benefits of the Sam’s Club loyalty card, plus some additional benefits.
