BENTONVILLE, Ark. – May 29, 2014 – Sam’s Club today announced the national rollout of Cash Rewards, a new program that provides $10 in Cash Rewards for every $500 spent on qualifying pre-tax purchases.
Beginning June 12, Sam’s Club Plus members will automatically be enrolled to start earning up to $500 in Cash Rewards annually, an industry-leading benefit among warehouse clubs.
The rewards, loaded annually onto membership cards, can be used for purchases in-club or on SamsClub.com, applied to annual membership fees, or redeemed for cash at any Sam’s Club register. Sam’s Club Plus members can track their Cash Rewards through their SamsClub.com account, the Sam’s Club mobile app, or at the Member Services Desk.
“We believe it’s important to add value to our membership by offering services and benefits that provide that extra something to our members,” said Rosalind Brewer, President and CEO of Sam’s Club. “With the summer entertaining and travel season just around the corner, Sam’s Club Plus members can start earning cash rewards during a peak spending time and continue to enjoy this money back advantage all year long.”
