Cash Back Offer

The cash back terms for this card can be a bit misleading. The amount you can earn depends on what type of Club member you are. Here’s how it works:

  • Sam’s Club Advantage Plus Members: You can earn “up to 2% cash back” for your purchases. The terms say you have to spend $10,000 in order to receive the 2% cash back. Otherwise, you will earn .25% cash back for your purchases. Here’s the breakdown – .25% on total purchases up to $1,500, .50% on total purchases from $1,500.01 to $3,000, 1% on total purchases from $3,000.01 to $5,000, 1.75% on total purchases from $5,000.01 to $10,000 and 2% on total purchases from $10,000.01 to $250,000.
  • Sam’s Club Advantage Members and non-Members: The rewards for Sam’s Club Advantage Members and non-Members are .25% on total purchases up to $1,500, .50% on total purchases from $1,500.01 to $3,000 and 1% on total purchases from $3,000.01 to $250,000.

Once a year you will receive a rebate check as long as you have $5 coming back to you and the check has to be cashed at a Sam’s Club. If you are a frequent Sam’s Club shopper then the cash back offer might still be worth it.

If cash back is your goal then consider a card that offers more cash back like the Chase Freedom Visa. This card gives you 5% cash back on popular rotating categories and 1% back on all your other purchases, including Sam’s Club purchases. This is a better offer than the .25% offered by the Sam’s Club Discover(R) Card.
