Sam's Club accepts Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as SNAP or food stamps, cards at all of its locations. However, in order to use SNAP benefits at Sam's Club, the cardholder must also be a Sam's Club member as of 2014.
Sam's Club memberships begin at $45 per year as of 2014. A $45 "Sam's Savings" membership gives members access to the store. This membership level also allows shoppers to receive special savings from Sam's Club suppliers and other perks, including online ordering with the ability to pick up purchases at Sam's Club the following day. Members also have access to the store's website for shopping items that are only available online.
