What is the Sam’s Club Curbside Pickup

With curbside pickup, you can shop at your club and retrieve your order without getting out of your car.

Curbside Pickup costs $4 per order for Club members and is always free for Plus members.

For Plus members, curbside pickup starts at 7 a.m. on Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. on Sunday.

Curbside Pickup for Club Members starts at 10:00 a.m.

Online prepayment is required for all orders for curbside pickup. You can use a Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Sam’s Club credit card, Sam’s Club gift cards, or debit card.

Look for items labeled "Pickup" while you shop. Products with just "Ship this item" displayed are not suitable for curbside pickup.

If you gave us your mobile number, we’ll text, in-app message, or send you a confirmation email.

For a maximum of 24 hours following the time you have scheduled for curbside pickup, we will hold your order.

You must present a valid government-issued photo ID along with your order number.

Park in a Curbside Pickup space when you get there, then use the Sam’s Club app or text messages to log in. We’ll carry your order to your car and load it.

We’ll find out next if Sam’s curbside pickup is tippable.

Large grocery store chains, including Walmart, Sam’s Club, Costco, Central Market, Kroger, H-E-B, and Aldi, do not permit their staff to accept gratuities for curbside deliveries, according to our research.

Only Kroger employees are prohibited from accepting delivery tips among the grocery stores listed; all other stores are allowed to do so.

Although tipping is never required, the FAQ sections on the websites of the grocery stores indicate that the larger the delivery, the greater the tip.

Out of all the stores we looked into, Target and Sprouts Farmers Market do take curbside delivery and tipping services; the personal shopper receives the tips directly.

The person working for the third-party website will receive the tip in this scenario, not the grocery store staff. This applies to delivery services and personal shopping.

Ask the staff if you are not sure if they are permitted to accept tips.

Let’s investigate how to avoid paying the Sam’s Club pickup fee.

Although it may cost more, curbside pickup is sometimes a more practical option when shopping at Sam’s Club.

You have to pay a $4 fee to pick up your items using this shopping method if you have a basic Club membership, which costs $50 annually.

Curbside pickup is complimentary, though, if you are a Plus member.

An annual membership in the Plus membership, which is an upgrade, costs $110.

2% cash back on eligible purchases is just one of the benefits of Plus membership, so it might be worth it to bite the bullet and take out a little extra cash to upgrade.
