Sam's Club Gives Mom the Edge for Back to School

10:59 AM

School is back, but many of us still have some shopping to do before the session is in full swing.  While you may not have considered Sam's Club as a shopping resource this year, you should!  Not only does it offer a variety of traditional school supplies, but it has clothing, lunch box snacks, and must-haves like cleaning wipes, tissues, and cold remedies!


We recently stopped by our local Sam's and stocked up on first aid items.  We seem to always run out, and my kids go through so many during the school year!  We also got our fill of General Mills Cereals -- they are having an awesome promotion through Aug. 31st:

 At the Sam’s Club Back-to-School event, you can get a head start on your collection and find 6 Box Tops on participating General Mills products. With your favorite Box Tops for Education brands at a great value, Sam’s Club is your one-stop destination for all your back-to-school supplies you need to send your kids off to school with confidence! 

In addition, Sam’s Club is giving you the opportunity to earn even more Box Tops when you upgrade to a “Plus Membership.” From Aug. 6 – Aug. 13, or while supplies last, visit the Member Services Desk of your local Sam’s Club and upon payment for your Plus Membership, you will receive a certificate for 150 Bonus Box Tops! For more information on how you can take advantage of the Back-to-School event at Sam’s Club, visit www.samsclub.com today! 


Even as homeschoolers, we have a large shopping list.  We were really impressed with how much we saved on staples for running our class time smoothly!

Have you considered using Sam's as your ally in the fight against costly school supply lists?  Why not?  We are even giving one of you a chance to do so for free!

Wanna Win?  We are giving away a $25 Sam's Club Gift Card to a lucky reader!  To be entered to win, just tell us what you would use it for!   You have until September 2nd at 11:59 pm CST to get your entries in, and you CAN ENTER EVERY DAY!  (Just comment as directed for the first entry, and then enter with "today's entry" for each entry after that. 

Giveaways are subject to complete site rules. Open to persons 18+ U.S. only, please.  (Be sure to give us a way to reach you if you win, and remember that we will never use your email or contact info for anything other than to send your prize.) Good luck, and be sure to check out all of our other giveaways! 


* I received a Sam's Club Plus Membership and gift card as part of this promotion. These, the prize, and all information pertaining to the campaign were provided by Sam's Club and General Mills through MyBlogSpark.

  104. I would use it to buy boxes of oatmeal. My yellow lab has a sensative stomach and couldn't keep food down very well for three years. We tried every brand out there. Last December we finally discovered if we feed him a diet of oatmeal, rice, meat and vegetables he does great. He hasn't gotten sick once since we switched him. Sam's Club sells Quaker Oats in bulk. This would help out a ton!
