SAM’s Club Offering Free Memberships to New Moms-Mostly Truth!
Summary of eRumor:
SAM’s Club is offering free one-year memberships for new moms through a special promotion.
It’s true that SAM’s Club is offering free memberships to new moms through a limited promotion — but there are a number of catches.
After word got out that SAM’s Club was offering free memberships to new and expecting mothers in September, “mom blogs” and websites like Coupon Pro urged shoppers to take advantage:
Like most promotions, however, this one has a number of catches. That created some confusion because the wholesaler posted information about the free membership for new moms offer in a “members-only” section of its website that’s not available to the general public.
Many took to Facebook with questions about the offer, and SAM’s Club directed them to send their contact info to the company in a private message to proceed with the offer:
As it turns out, the free membership offer is valid for moms with children who are 12 months old or younger, and for expecting mothers who can show proof of pregnancy. There’s no word on how long the free membership for new moms offer will last, but it’s likely offered only during the wholesaler’s “Baby Month” in September.
Typically, SAM’s Club memberships cost $45 per year for a basic plan, or $100 per year for a “plus” membership plan that has added perks like earlier shopping hours and product protection plans.
