Sam’s Club Adds Travel Service to Member Benefits

The content is accurate at the time of publication and is subject to change.

Sam’s Club shoppers will be able to book travel online through the warehouse store’s new travel program. Sam’s Club Travel will offer Itineraries to more than 4,500 destinations served by 150 airlines and will offer deals to more than 6,000 attractions in 800 cities.

Eighteen car rental brands and 13 cruise lines are also available for booking through the Sam’s Club site, which offers vacation packages as well as stand-alone bookings.

Discounts and no ads

The Sam’s Club Travel website is free of pop-up ads and doesn’t offer price comparisons via external sites. Reviews from Trip Advisor® are integrated into the site and trip prices from competing sites are shown within the site. Customer service agents are available through instant chat 24 hours a day, seven days a week. To check out the new Sam’s Club Travel site, go to

To provide the travel service Sam’s Club partnered with Tourico Holidays, a wholesale travel services company. Tourico has contracts with hotels, cruise lines, tourist attractions, vacation homes and ground transportation companies

Savings makes annual fee pay off

“The savings a member receives by booking just one family vacation will justify the cost of their annual membership,” said Seong Ohm, a senior vice president at Sam’s Club.

Members will be able to save up to 50% off hotel bookings, 25% off on tourist attractions and activities, 15% off cruises, and up to 10% on car rentals. There are two levels of Sam’s Club membership: Sam’s Savings ($45 annually) and Sam’s Plus ($100 annually). Sam’s Plus members will be able to access more travel discounts and benefits than Sam’s Savings members.

5-3-1 Sam’s Club MasterCard offers more savings

A new co-branded credit card available only to Sam’s Club members, the 5-3-1 Sam’s Club MasterCard, offers members even greater savings when they book travel on the new web portal.

Cardholders get 3% cash back on all travel purchases, 3% cash back on dining, 5% back on gas spending, and 1% on everything else. The card is also an EMV chip card – a more secure payment technology than traditional magnetic stripe cards. This offers customers peace of mind in the midst of a rash of recent payment system data breaches.There is no annual fee for the card, but you must be a Sam’s Club member to apply.
