They have a pretty sweet 100% satisfaction guarantee. Returns can be made in club or online, and refunds are issued as cash or credit, depending on your original form of payment. Online orders can be shipped back, but in-club purchases must be returned back to the physical club, not online. Sam's Club will refund or credit shipping and delivery charges only in cases where the return is due to an error by Sam's Club or if the item was damaged during shipping. This flexible return policy does have exceptions however so take a look at the limitations listed below:

  • Most items can be returned at any time if you're not satisfied.
  • Electronics and major appliances have to be returned within 90 days.
  • Motorsports items and commercial heavy equipment have a 30 day return window.
  • All types of cell phones need to be returned within 14 days.
  • No returns are accepted on: gift cards and prepaid cards, tickets, custom-made items like personalized gifts and photos, purchases made through the Sam's Club Wholesale Trading Program, and prescriptions.

What Time Does Sam's Club Open?

It's mentioned a million times above, but in case you missed it — Sam's Club normal club hours are from 10 am to 8 pm. Plus Members are allowed in a couple of hours earlier at 8 am in order to shop a little earlier and beat the crowds. Check your local store times here.

How To Save the Most at Sam's Club?

To get the best deals during the holidays, you can always keep an eye on our holiday discount page. You can find all time low prices and sales on various retailers, not just Sam's Club. Sam's Club specific deals and top selling new items can be found on their website. Most of the time, buying in bulk from warehouse retailers like Costco and Sam's Club is how you're going to save the most.

How Does Shopping Compare Online vs In-Store?

Sam's Club's in-store prices generally match their online prices. Shopping online provides the convenience of browsing without having to change out of your pajamas. Plus Members get free shipping on most eligible items, and there's no minimum purchase to get this perk. However, shopping in-store gives you access to specific in-store coupons and deals that are only available when shopping in person at the club. You'll also have access to the hearing center, pharmacy, optical center, and more.

Sam's Club is only closed three days of the year so get out there and take advantage of the great deals they have during the other 362 days that they're open!
