Get a cheap Sam’s Club membership to use the Amex Offers up

If you don’t yet have a Sam’s Club membership, but you have the the Amex Offers for either $10 back on $30 or $15 back on $50 that you’d like to be able to use at Samsclub.com, check out this deal from Groupon that offers a pretty break-even deal on membership.

Quick Thoughts

This is a pretty solid deal if you value the free food at all. The two gift cards are a nice little return on the $35 spend. You do have to spend $15 on Samsclub.com to get the $15 eGift card, but I imagine most people considering buying a membership intended to spend at least that much. Don’t forget to go through a shopping portal before buying from Groupon.

While you won’t be able to use the Sam’s Club Amex Offers to purchase this membership (the offer excludes membership fees and you’d be paying through Groupon for this membership. However, you could obviously use one of the two Current Amex Offers to trigger that $15 eGC.

Further, Danny the Deal Guru at Miles to Memories reports that there is currently a deal for 15% off on iTunes gift cards. That deal is a package of four $25 gift cards ($100 total) for $84.47. There’s a max of 3 per customer and that deal ends on July 20th. It would potentially be a good use of an Amex Offer — use enabling you to get $100 in iTunes gift cards for about $80, triggering the $15 eGift card that comes with the membership. Note that the other $10 eGift card likely will not arrive before the iTunes deal expires, so you’ll have to apply that to a future deal/order.

On the groupon I see the e-gift cards but no mention of the free pizza, free chicken and free cookies. Has this been removed from the offer or am I missing something.
