If You Are a Costco Member, You Can Shop at Sam’s Club for Free Until July 4th.

Costco recently stopped accepting American Express and switched to Visa. Of course, some members are unhappy with the transition , and rival Sam’s Club has exploited this resentment to their advantage. Until July 4th, Costco members can shop at Sam’s Club for free.

It’s kind of a jump-start, but you have to respect the marketing! I first heard about the promotion at Rather Be Shopping. Writer Kyle James explains:

Hats off to the marketing department of Sam’s Club for this brilliant move. After Costco switched to Visa from American Express, many Costco members are very unhappy for various reasons, and many are actually threatening to cancel their membership.

Because of this backlash, Sam’s is trying to pull some new members out of Costco by offering free access to Sam’s Club until July 4th.

However, as James mentions, there is one caveat: this does not include online purchases through the Sam’s Club website. However, through its Facebook page, Sam’s Club announced that the promotion is valid in all physical locations. This also applies to buying fuel.

And yes, they accept all major credit cards.
