Also, you get cash-back rebates the more you shop at the warehouses.
Anyway, the point is, there is a financial benefit to being a Sam's or Costco member. With X-Ring, I just don't see any added value for the customer to pay for a membership.
Having said that, I do know there are laws that allow certain businesses to operate as a member's only club. Not sure what the advantages are, but I remember needing to join Pets Discount Warehouse to shop there. I just checked Dog Trainer on the application, and got my membership card. No membership fee!!
Agreed. The cash back is awesome at sams. The amount i spend, i save on avg, 40-60 bucks a week at sams rather than walmart. Since walmart doesnt charge memebership each item i get is 1 to 2 dollars more. And tbh the amount i spend yearly, the cash back i get pays my membership and more. So it pretty good.
Anyways, i also went there once and couldnt buy anything so i sat outside when my friends shopped. And tbh i think they were just there for the girl. Lol. Dont recall if they bought anything or not.
