Non-members can obtain free one-day passes to shop at Sam's Club store locations by visiting the Sam's Club website, registering as a guest member and using the one-day guest coupon code provided at its website as of 2015. Sam's Club online registration requires sharing a name, address and contact phone number. Guest shoppers must also create online accounts and provide email addresses. Alternatively, non-members can visit store locations to get information regarding club membership options.
Submitting an invitation to shop guest registration form is the only way a non-member is allowed to purchase items at a local Sam's Club. A guest member is allowed to add a complimentary cardholder account for one other household member at the time of registration. This second guest cardholder must be at least 18 years of age to qualify. Non-members who shop at Sam's Club are assessed a 10-percent service fee on all purchases, and this service fee extends to one-day pass holders. This non-member service fee applies to most Sam's Club locations, and exceptions are locations where this rule is not applicable.
Sam's Club typically offers its members discounted merchandise at prices comparable or slightly lower than Wal-Mart. Sam's Club members pay annual membership fees and can purchase many items in bulk.
