There is so much to do during the holiday season, and not enough hours in the day. Saving time however you can during the busy holiday season is essential, which is why it’s really exciting to tell you that Sam’s Club has just launched Scan & Go. It’s a new mobile app that helps you save time by letting you bypass the traditional checkout lane and pay for items directly from your mobile phone as you shop. Shut the front door! Many thanks to Sam’s Club for providing me with a gift card, so I could try out this new app.
I’m not kidding. You can seriously skip the checkout lines by using the Sam’s Club Scan & Go app. I ended up at Sam’s Club twice over the weekend. It seems I go there a lot, especially during the holiday season. I popped in with my sister for a few things on Saturday, then headed back to do my Thanksgiving dinner shopping. Saturday also happened to be the first day of Sam’s Club Taste of Sames event, and some tasting we did. It’s a good thing I skipped lunch. There were so many delicious things to try. I love that I got to taste my Thanksgiving ham, before purchasing.
Say cheese please.
Saturday was my first time using the Scan & Go app, and it won’t be the last. Before leaving the house, I downloaded the app, signed into my Sam’s Club account, and entered a saved payment method. Once in store, it was incredibly simple to use. I just followed the prompts on the app. And, did I mention that you get to skip the lines?!
How to Use Scan & Go:
• Simply download the Scan & Go app onto an iPhone or Android mobile phone and open the app once inside a club.
• Scan the barcode of each item you wish to purchase and then place the item into the shopping cart. No barcode? Quickly look up the item with “Find an Item.”
• As you shop, you will see the running total of the items in your cart.
• Easily checkout and pay in the app.
• Show the receipt from your phone to an associate on the way out. It’s that simple.
As I was leaving the store, I mentioned to a Sam’s Club associate that I used the app for the first time. He told me to look back at everyone in line as I exit the store, and give them a Princess wave. I laughed so hard. Seriously though, I wanted to tell everyone about this app. Everyone should know about it!
A successful shopping trip indeed.
For those of us mindful of budgets, the Scan & Go app also allows you to easily track spending and Instant Savings while you shop. No more walking around the store with a calculator or a running total in your head.
A note about the Taste of Sam’s event: From 11/19 – 11/23, swing by your local Sam’s Club to try and buy delicious holiday food items including decadent desserts, fresh picked berries and savory sides.
