Thanks to Sam’s Club for sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% my own.
There are so many things I have learned since becoming a mom. Not that I have a ton of wisdom to share or impart on you, because I’m still trying to figure out potty training for my youngest, and most times I feel like I’m just winging it as a mom. One thing I have learned as a mom, and think every mom should know about is Sam’s Club is the ultimate mom hack.
9 Reasons Sam’s Club is the Ultimate Mom Hack:
1. Pre-Packaged Snacks in Bulk.
Call me lazy, but there are mornings that we are running behind and I just don’t have time to pour goldfish crackers in a bag, and juice in a thermos for both girls. To say I have learned the importance of having pre-packaged snacks on hand, is an understatement. Sam’s Club not only has pre-packed snacks, but available to purchase in bulk. That means more snacks and more time in between trips to the store.
2. Instant Savings.
I’m all for saving money, but at this point in my life, I don’t always have time to clip coupons. Sam’s Club makes it easy with instant savings, which means no clipping coupons and you still save money!
3. Mobile Rebates.
I don’t always have time to clip coupons, but I do have time to snap a photo of my receipt. You can use mobile rebates through popular rebate apps like Ibotta and Checkout 51 on products at Sam’s Club! You don’t hold up the line, don’t have to clip anything, and you still save money.
4. Grocery Shop for the Month.
You can buy in bulk at Sam’s Club, which means less trips to the store. Since Sam’s Club has fresh meat, fresh produce, household items, personal care items, and frozen food items, you can plan a trip to shop for the month!
Bonus Tip: If the fresh meat is in too big of a package for you, the butcher can package it into smaller packages for you.
5. Curb Side Pickup.
Don’t have time to drag the kids into the store with you? Save some time by ordering online, and then picking it up at the curb! Yes, it’s a thing, and it’s amazing!
6. FREE Samples.
It’s like Sam’s Club knows me. . I mean, they have free samples! Not only can you sample the foods that are sold within the club, you can also scan your Sam’s Club card to get a free sample. My kids take turns on scanning the card and picking up the sample from the bin. I’m that mom who uses it as a reward for being good throughout the store. (Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. 😉 )
7. Savings on Name Brand Clothes.
The savings doesn’t just stop at the bulk packages of snacks, Sam’s Club has major name brand clothes in the club for cheaper than I’ve seen anywhere else! They even have the latest character clothes for kids at awesome prices.
8. Big Shopping Carts.
I’m sure moms everywhere understand my excitement for the bigger shopping carts at Sam’s Club! There are places for TWO kids to sit in the front. This is a game changer for all the moms who have more than one child in diapers. Not only can you fit two kids up front (buckled in), but the entire cart is bigger so you have room for the products in bulk. If you’re like me, you have enough room in the back of the cart for your kid to eat her super-sized artic freeze for less than a dollar (#parentingwin)!
9. Scan & Go.
Sam’s Club has this amazing new feature that I absolutely love, Scan & Go. You can scan the item with your phone as you place it in your shopping cart, and it keeps track of it for you! It even has the total amount you’re spending (tax included). When you’re ready to check out, you just click “check out” and it will charge your card on file. Then when you leave, just show that to the associate standing at the door for them to check it off.
Standing in line with kids who are ready to leave the store is no fun; there is no more standing in line with Scan & Go! Download the app below for your phone, then set up your account with your Sam’s Club Membership to be able to Scan & Go.

Let’s face it, time is a precious commodity as a mom. The last thing you want to do with that time is spend it going to different stores to get everything on your list. Sam’s Club has everything you need from fresh produce to personal care products to pet care products, and everything in between. They even have shoes (cute ones too), name brand clothing, and books. If you don’t have a Sam’s Club Membership, you’re missing out. I mean, where else can you get everything from diapers to fresh produce to name brand clothes all in the same place and for less?? Give shopping at Sam’s Club a try and you will see why it’s the ultimate mom hack.
