Sam’s Club vs. Costco: a deep dive into which is BEST (we have both!)

Quick Version: We have memberships to both Costco and Sam's Club, and after shopping both for YEARS we're sharing the reasons why we think Sam's Club is the overall winner!

One thing we've learned recently from our Instagram besties is that people take their grocery memberships VERY seriously! And since we do too, we thought we'd stop gatekeeping why Sam's Club has way more to offer, plus the hidden gems you haven't tried yet! From their game-changing Scan & Go feature that lets you skip the checkout lines (because who has the time, right?) to the incredible variety of Member’s Mark products that keep both our pantry and wallet happy, Sam’s Club knows what it takes to streamline our busy days. So, grab your shopping list (and maybe a diet coke), and keep reading to find out our Sam's Club faves, a limited-time membership deal + so much more!
