Remember the days of wandering the mall and snacking on a huge pretzel from the food court while you casually browsed for gifts? Fast forward to 2020 and the goal for holiday shopping this season is to be safely tucked away, not touching things.
So, why should you do curbside Pickup instead of Prime delivery or (gasp) your usual in-store shopping? Let us count the ways.
Next time your roomie is gabbing your ear off, grab your phone and tackle your list on the Sam’s Club app. You can also buy just one thing, like a new pair of noise-canceling earbuds. You’ll still get free Pickup.
Fill your virtual cart with a new for nana, a for your pops, and a for dinner, choose a pickup time, and then park it while the pros load the trunk.
Get in on a for $100 a year and curbside Pickup is always free. Even Basic members, who pay just $45 a year, can get free Pickup right now for a limited time.
Pickup is from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day, but one of the perks of being a Plus member is that you get special curbside service starting at 7 a.m. Monday through Saturday. Early bird gets it every time.
If you’re tethered to your desk all day, do your shopping while waiting for that video meeting to start. Then take your desk on the go as you fire off some emails while parked in the Sam’s Club Pickup spot. Ah, multitasking.
If you’re used to two-day delivery schedules, then Sam’s Club Pickup will feel like warp speed. Some orders of 10 items or less can be picked up in a measly four hours.
If you’re still waiting for that hot pot you ordered weeks ago, Pickup delivers the goods straight to your car. Nothing’s lost in transit or ripe for package thieves.
