Does a family of 2 adults really need a Sam's Club membership?
There is one recently opened in Peachtree City, and when Lois visited we took advantage of her membership to check it out.
We came across 4 items which we FOR SURE purchase at Publix or Target. We bought them, wrote down the price, figured out similar case cost at a few non-Sam's places, and determined if the $40 admission is worth it.
Note: None of the comparable items are listed with a sale or coupon price.
Our case study:
Item Package Sam's Grocery Volume Savings
Prevacid 42-count $24.82 $25.69 17 $(14.79)
Digiorno Pizza 1 pizza $4.49 $7.69 25 $(80.00)
Gatorade, orange 8-pack $4.96 $6.59 20 $(32.60)
Granola Bars 6-pack $1.69 $3.05 20 $(27.20)
So, for these 4 items it's worth it. BUT...nothing else. And we'd have to make a special trip just for these. And, if we buy anything outside of these 4 items we normally wouldn't - POOF savings gone.
We are sticking to Publix.
