They asked us to give it a try and I am so glad we did.  It made shopping a breeze!  I couldn’t believe how easy it was to use!  We were able to get in and out of Sam’s Club quickly and it saved us so much time.

There’s lots to do this holiday season and not enough hours in the day. Finding time during the busy holiday season is essential, which is why it’s really exciting that Sam’s Club has just launched Scan & Go. This new mobile app helps you save time by letting you bypass the traditional checkout lane and pay for items directly from your mobile phone as you shop. We are excited to share our personal experience using it with you.

It was easy to use.  iPhone and Androids users just need to download the free Sam’s Club Scan & Go app, which includes a digital membership card. Once inside your local Sam’s Club, members can use the app to scan UPC codes on items in their cart. While you are shopping you simply scan each bar code as you place it in the cart.  I love how easy it is to add and delete items.  Best of all it allows you to be able to track what you are spending.  If you have a budget to stick too you can quickly remove an item from your cart before checking out.  Check it out online at the Scan & Go website.

When you’re done shopping and ready to check out, you can pay directly on your phone from anywhere in the club and bypass the register. Show your receipt from your phone to an associate on the way out and head on home. It’s that simple!  We shopped during the Sam’s Club One Day Only Holiday Savings Event that was on November 12th.  There were tons of great deals!  One of my favorite deals was the XBOX games for only $19.88!

We did two transactions.  One was an XBOX One game for my son and the second was personal items for our home.  We wanted to test it out first before we did a larger order so we purchase the game and then simply took it to our vehicle.  Once we realized how easy it was to use the new Scan & Go app we did some additional shopping.  We purchased men’s socks, sparkling cider, toilet paper and paper towels.

There were so many great gift ideas for Christmas.  From tablets, to gaming systems to a variety of technology.  You are sure to make everyone happy when you shop at Sam’s Club this holiday season.  My son had fun doing some “window shopping” and added several items to his wish list including the XBox One S. I like shopping at Sam’s Club for technology because they off the Sam’s Club 24/7 Tech Support.

We have used Tech Support personally when we purchased a TV and Sound Bar.  Members can connect with a Sam’s Club Tech Expert 24/7, even Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.  Support includes free set-up and assistance on tech items purchased at Sam’s Club during Black Friday or any day of the year.

  1. Is there a way to print a receipt when you use the pay and go app? I shop for my company and would love to take advantage of the convenience the app affords, but I would need a printed receipt to turn in to the business office.
    Thanks, Robbie Miller

    1. Hey, Robbie. The easy answer is, “There is no way to directly print a receipt from the Scan & Go app.” You can, however, export the receipt from your device. I export my S&G receipts to Google Drive (I’m guessing any cloud service anyone uses would work) then go to Google Drive from my PC and print. (It’s interesting, my company only allows electronic receipts for expense reports [PDF or JPG picture of a printed receipt.] If I have a printed receipt for reimbursement, I have to scan it or take a picture with my mobile phone in order to submit it.)

      1. Doug, I just reviewed your message and I know this happen back when. You should be able now to “Share” and I have Adobe on my phone and can create PDF from “Share”. I hope this helps.

  2. When i get home (office) I just print the receipt from my phone. Can actually use two different cards for separate orders and print them out.

  3. Is there any limitation on the payment types that you can utilize in the app (i.e.: Master Card or American Express only)?

  4. I can’t figure out what account is tied to this app so that I wil not have to log into it to put payment information in all the time

  5. Can you purchase liqueur using the Scan and Go ? I cannot use the self checkout when purchasing liqueur.

    1. I am not sure but I use the Kroger Click List for beer/cider with no concern. Since it is attached to your Sam’s Club Card I bet it won’t be an issue.

  6. I have a SCAN & Go app on my phone. I would like to know how to delete receipts off of the phone. On the receipt section i have receipts dating back to November of 2017. I thought they would go away after 30 days each month. Can your help me.??? Linda Brown

  7. Can you go to different sams Club stores using one scan and go account – there are two near us and depending on where we are for the day is when we decide on which one to go to

  8. Walking out of the store with Note 9 in hand and QR code ready to go, I accidentally touch the screen and just like that, QR code gone!! I could not, nor can I still get it back. How do you do this? My Sam’s wants to see this code or your not leaving!!

    1. Yeah when you exit the app by accident, if you log back on to scan & go. The barcode reciept should pop back on for you to show upon exit. The app knows when the barcode reciept been scanned. Any other issue speak with the store mngr for the inconvience. Love the scan & go option. Every store should have one.

  9. I am not understanding the scanning part. Is it take a picture of the product? Or do you just pass the Iphone over the bar code and it records it?
    It sounds good and I would like to try it.
    Thanks, Elmer
