So we can't just print the pdf and use it?

Service fee waiver not valid in California or South Carolina.

I'm thinking that they mean the 10% service fee isn't applicable in the states listed with guess passes. I read somewhere that its against the law in California for companies to charge service fees with promotions like this. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

TY, OP. Piranha you deserve!

Thaaaank You OP !

I guess you can try. How tight is security at Sam's Club?

What do you mean by only original certificates accepted? We can't just print it and bring it in?

Awesome. Piranha you deserve!

Maybe Costco will accept competitor's coupons????

Is the 'not good in CA, ...' clause deceptive? I seem to recall reading on another post here that CA prohibits them from charging the 10% surcharge even if you just go and ask for a day-pass. Is it really 'not necessary in CA, ...'?

Does anyone know the story on that?

It's a Sam's Club / Allstate promotion. The PDF is hosted on the Allstate site, so it is valid to print take in.

Thank you OP for sharing!!

Perfect timing...

So can we use it in CA or not? Without the 10% service fee.

Thanks!

thanks a lot

Thanks OP!! Much better deal than the BJ's one.. That one sucked... I mean who wants to pay an extra 15%??

thank you!

Thanks! Been looking for it!

Thanks OP!!

Green for OP. BTW this is a universal coupon. If you sign in at allstate's site to get the coupon you get the same bar code.

Thanks!

How does Sams Club compare to Costco? I'd prefer informed opinions please

These deals worry me. I remember Fedco doing these types of things before they went of business. Sams is much bigger, but it tells you how deperate companies are.

I like it! Green from me OP. Thanks!

They shouldn't charge a membership fee to begin with. Wal-Mart doing bad is still multi-billions of profits. Even if they don't make any money with the poor economy they have already made billions.

I'm a Sam's Club member and have been for years. No Costco within 50 miles of me, so do not shop there regularly. They are similar in concept in that you pay a fee for the privilege of shopping there. I only buy certain things at Sam's such as some bulk groceries, office supplies (Printer ink) and occasional odds and ends, but I am not sure I buy enough to justify the up-front expense. The good thing about these places is their no questions asked return policies and 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Judging from the number of Costco deals seen here and elsewhere, I get the impression Costco tries to be more competitive with electronics and the like. At Sam's, I don't see that. WalMart in the area often have better prices on same/similar items. They do have pharmacy and optical dept in many stores, which I believe you do NOT need a Sam's membership to use. If you were to pay for a Sam's membership and were unhappy with it, you could get it refunded without question or penalty.

There's no desperation here. Sam's gives out these one-day passes a few times every year. The whole membership fee is just a scam to make people feel special, like they're in an exclusive whites-only country club where they can get secret stock tips from one of the Madoff brothers. There is just no way a $30-$50 annual fee is the _only_ thing keeping Sam's or Costco in the black.
