Even since I learned about the Sam’s Club Scan & Go app, I’ve found myself shopping at Sam’s Club way more. The app basically serves as your cashier and allows you to shop and checkout without having to wait in line.
1. There is absolutely no waiting in line!
When your shopping is complete, there is no waiting in line at the checkout counter. While you are still in the store, you simply pay from your phone. The receipt will appear on the app which you show to the Sam’s Club associate when leaving the store (as you normally would do with a paper receipt). This is the best invention even when shopping with kids who are yelling in your ear “how many more minutes!”
2. It is extremely easy to use
Downloading the app takes just a few minutes and is very simple to use at the store. First off, you can download the free Scan & Go app for both Android and iPhones. You’ll then have to set up the app with your Sam’s Club information. While shopping at the store, you use the app to scan the products UPC codes that you add to your shopping cart.
3. It allows you to budget
While you add items to your cart, it gives you a running total. This helps from a budgeting stand point and you can remove items if you are going a little overboard!
4. All receipts are saved
All your receipts are saved in your account on the app. You do not have to worry about keeping paper receipts to track against your credit card bill. Also, if you typically submit receipts for reimbursement, this will allow you to easily keep track of all receipts. It also helps you with your yearly budgeting if you want to know what you typically spend your money on.
5. Clearance items appear with the discounted price
Many times Sam’s Clubs marks down seasonal or holiday items once the season or holiday has passed. Unfortunately though, typically they aren’t marked on the sign so you do not really know until it goes through the checkout scanner. With the Scan & Go app it will give you the price right away, so if an item is on clearance you’ll know immediately.
