It is a busy time of year. With all of the party and vacation planning, gift shopping, guests preparation and more, who has time to stand in long lines? Finding time during this busy holiday season is important. That’s why Sam’s Club has launched the Scan & Go app. With this mobile app you can save time by skipping the checkout lines and paying for items right from your phone as you shop! I was excited to be contacted to review this new app from Sam’s Club.
If you are still searching for last minute gifts, but don’t want to spend a lot of time shopping or standing in long lines, Sam’s Club has you covered. They have a variety of stocking stuffers, toys, tech gear, gadgets, and more.
I was excited to try out this Scan & Go app for myself. I headed over to Sam’s Club on December 17 during the Last Minute Gifts Event. I was worried it would be crowded and take a lot of time out of my already busy schedule.
Before I went, I downloaded the Scan & Go app. Setup was super fast. When I arrived at the store, the app automatically knew which store I was at.
As I put items in my cart, I scanned them with the app. In one case, I didn’t see a price listed, but when I scanned the product, the price was visible in the app. That was handy. All of the products scanned easily. Just for grins, I thought I would see what would happen when I scanned the pack of Shiner Beer. I got a notice that I had to see a cashier to purchase that item. So, you can’t use this app on alcohol products. As I scanned items, I liked being able to see the running total. This is great for those on a budget and wanting to track what you are spending.
When I was done putting everything into my cart, I hit the pay button. I typed in my credit card info and the payment was processed very quickly.
The app displayed a barcode that I needed to show to the employee at the door. I bypassed the checkout lines and went right to the exit doors. The employee scanned the barcode, checked the items in my cart, and I was on my way. Wow! What a huge time saver! I will definitely be using the app next time I shop at Sam’s Club.
Now, I can view past purchases and receipts in the app. I don’t have to worry about holding on to my printed receipts. It’s all right there in my phone.
There are a few others ways you can save time and money at Sam’s Club. Members can connect with a Sam’s Club Tech Expert 27/7 to help with free set-up and assistance on tech items purchased from the store. There’s also a 5-3-1 Sam’s Club Mastercard that gives 5% cash back on gas, 3% on dining, and 1% on everything else. Lastly, save time with the Club Pickup. Like a personal shopper, with Club Pickup you can order thousands of items and have them ready for pickup for no additional cost.
