Waste of time

"It may seem like a great idea to use your free plus member benefit and have items shipped...it isn't a great idea. Head to the store or use someone with experience like Amazon. I ordered 3 items recently and chose to have them shipped because I didn't need them for a week or so. When the box showed up only one of my items was inside. The box said it weighed 24.85 but when I picked it up from FedEx it weighed 3.70 pounds. They also tried to tell me that three large items fit inside a 13x11x8 box. One item fit inside. Dealing with their chat to get my items or a refund was absolutely horrible and ridiculous. Them telling me that they would refund the items as a "courtesy" and implying that I really did receive them is horrible customer service. I offered pictures showing only one item fit in the box that included the tracking label visible in the photo but they aren't actually set up to receive anything logical like proof. They just want to make you feel like you are trying to get one over on Sam's Club. "

Terrible, just terrible

"This review is for the online operations of Sam's Club (samsclub.com) I ordered a couple of Sam's gift cards. The way their gift card activation is supposed to work is that they ship you the card and email you the activation codes/instructions, which you can then use to activate the card online. This is great for security...except the activation email in my cases came waaayy later than the card (which came in the mail) or did not work to activate the card properly. Oh, and they billed my credit card many days after the delivery, so I had to go back and make sure my card hadn't been compromised. Fun.

I called Sam's customer service, and they had no idea what the activation code was...the rep had me try everything from the PIN on the card to the last x numbers on the card.

Worst experience i've ever had with a company.

"Placed an order almost 4 days ago was given a guaranteed delivery date of june 5 or june 6 at the latest it's now june 6 and my order hasn't even been shipped out yet. I contacted customer service four times now 2 of those times I was told that "my info was sent to the right people and that they would get back to me" never happened. The third time after giving my info they never even messaged me back and now the fourth time they're just now telling me that that's just an estimate and that "you're order may or may not ship out today it may take 5-7 days to get to you or it may not and that it may be a few days later or before on what I just told you" to me that's a bulls*** answer. Never in my life have I been given a estimated delivery time that was that off, even with that aside I could've handled that but the fact that their customer service was very unhelpful and it
took me what four times to get an answer, a textbook answer about shipping at that.They sure as hell took my money as soon as I placed the order but have been avoiding me when it comes to my order and have yet to ship it out. This is my first time dealing with samsclub and definitely my last.

NEVER trust a Sam's Club review.

"Sam's Club emailed me to ask me to give a review on a recent coffee order. I wrote a review telling that it was a "great deal and a great price" later I received to following email asking me to change it.

If there were 0 stars I would pick it!!

"Bought a savannah pavilion online because the store said they wouldn’t be getting any and the price was 1,599.00 when it was 799.00 at store before!! We bought it and pd total of 1,710.00 now I find out it is at the store for 1,299.00 and they won’t give me the price difference because they said they don’t match club prices!!! Whaaaaat?!! It’s been a week since I bought it !! Are you kidding ? Never will I buy from online again I had a similar experience with a large rug I bought online also !!! Done done!! No wonder they are closing Sam’s everywhere!!"

Shipping/replacement

"I ordered over 30 items to be shipped from Phoenix Gilbert store to Show Low, Arizona. The box came damaged to the point that the contents was almost falling out. And my large bag of dog food was ripped open. It was delivered by FedEx and the driver took responsibility for both box and bag of dog food. I called to the store and was told that I had to bring in the dog food bag, my membership card and my paperwork. I told the lady on the phone, I don't have the bag, FedEx took it. She said well you will have to come in with the paperwork and hung up on me, I was still asking a question. I'm mad. I pay good money to have a membership. I live three hours from the store. I had my items shipped for convenience. I bought over $500 worth of supplies there. The box was poorly packaged and the dog food was not packaged at all. "

SAMS REFUSE TO HONOR THEIR WARRANTY! HIDDEN TERMS THEY DON'T DISCLOSE!

" I bought a battery for my 2007 PT Cruiser. I bought a more expensive battery because it came with a full 3 year warranty, than their cheaper one. This was May or June 2015. The battery failed within the warranty period (March 2018). The battery was taken to Sam's Club, who tested it, and they agree that it failed within the warranty period. So what's the problem?
Sam's claims you must be a current member before they will make the exchange.
If I buy a new membership they will exchange it for me.
The battery says it has a "3 year full replacement".
The card above the item says it has "36 MO free Replacement"
The website agrees there is a 3 year warranty.
But despite this language SAM's says I only get the 3 year free replacement if i'm still a Sam's member!!!
If true, why didn't SAM's disclose this at the time of purchase? Why wasn't this on their printed materials and website? If this hidden/silent unwritten term had been disclosed to me I probably would not have bought it. (I had had a Costco membership and bought that year SAM's to see which I liked better. Since I had decided to go back to Costco that "warranty" was worthless crap!)
The point is anything you buy from SAM's has NO WARRANTY unless you remain a SAMS CLUB MEMBER

"I purchased 5.18 lbs. chicken **** at $1.98 per lb. for $10.26. When I unwrapped the chicken, I noticed how heavy the container was. In the bottom There was a watered down sponge that weighed 1.4 lb. and the chicken weighed 3.78lb. Consequently, I paid $2.71 per lb. false advertising. Sam's doesn't show the discount coupon until everything is charged. If something is missed, you have to go to the service desk which I didn't due to the line ar the service desk."

Apparently the experience you have while getting a product shipped isn't allowed in a review?

"I wrote a review about a product that I had ordered and had shipped to my house from Sam's Club. Love the product - was SO unhappy with the shipping, lack of communication and the fact that I had to contact customer service 3 weeks after my product was out for delivery and returned to store for damages. My review was then removed because I mentioned shipping and was told to read the guidelines of reviews. There is nowhere that I can see on the site to leave a complaint or review other than on my product and the fact that they removed my review for being honest about my purchase experience is ridiculous. If I could get the item anywhere else I would definitely go elsewhere to buy it. "

club pickup

"Tried it trice, the first time it was not ready, I was there twice as long as it takes me to shop, Second time spent 30 minutes in line only to find out it was short, Same products not available Dr, pepper has been out 3 of 4 trips to this store. Computors in this store need upgrading, Employees complaning about them not working right 2 of the last three time in this store. When picking up Pizza crust here it is most of the time in the back which creates another wait. You closed the best service store in Nashville tn. I Hate this store at Antioch.

Horrible customer service

"I have been a loyal Sam’s Club member for 17 years. Over that time I’ve spent over $70,000 in products from my local club store. After I tell you this story you’ll understand while I’ll never spend another dime there again. My wife and I were looking to replace and upgrade our mattress and bed frame. I found a nice deal on a 12 inch memory foam mattress and frame set for $699. The seller Zinus had good reviews on the mattress so we decided to make the purchase. I bought the set on 02/02/18. The tracking numbers were sent and I waited for my 3 piece shipment. My mattress arrived first on 02/09/18. We were very impressed with it. My frame brackets arrived on 02/12/18. I thought ok I better call because it said everything was delivered but I had no frame. I called customer service and spoke with “ Lamont” I think. He assured me they just forgot to ship the frame even though they printed a shipping label for it. He spoke with the company and assured me it would be shipping the next day. I was to receive an email confirmation with in 24-48 hours. About 10 minutes later I saw an email in my inbox with a customer support number from Zinus. Lamont had sent an email through their web portal that read “ i bought a mattress and didn’t get my frame” that was all he did. I talked with Zinus who said Sam’s would need to order the frame and have it shipped since it was an internal problem. Phone call #2 with “Shakira” she said she would figure out what’s going on and give me a call back with the shipping information. I should be receiving a call in one to two hours at the latest. A week later I still haven’t received that call. Two days later I called back and spoke with “Bobbie” she was appalled at what happened and said she’d get it expedited within one to three days. I should receive an email confirmation within 24-48 hours. Five days later I still don’t have a confirmation. I emailed customer service this time with my complaint and “Luis” assured me my tracking info was on the way and I should receive my bed frame any day. That was three days ago now. I called to check on it tonight and talked with a gentleman whose name I can’t pronounce because he sounded as if he had a mouth full of marbles. He gave me the original tracking number and told me it is now Fed Ex’s problem and they’d be calling me tonight. Four hours later I’m writing this review after cancelling my credit card payment to them and I still haven’t received a call from Fed Ex concerning the shipping label that was printed or the frame that was “forgot” to be shipped. Good by Sam’s club. It was nice doing business with you until I needed your customer service. I’ll drive the forty miles to Costco and spend my money there. I would highly advise anyone wanting to order online from Sam’s to not do it. Use Amazon. You may pay a little more but it’s worth the cost not to have to deal with these idiots. "

Poor customer service

"Some employees need to be taught what good customer service is. What good manners is. Need to smile, be courteous, and caring. Visited the new deli today for the first time, ordered chicken nuggets and fries.both were burnt and cold. When questioned about the nuggets looking burnt, was told that they were not burnt and they are cooked in the oven and not deep fried. Heard them making a remark as I left the counter. "

No wonder they are closing store. They aren't even trying.

"Ordered Nintendo gift cards from their website. Found out that the item was lost in the mail. I e-mail their representative, and Celeste basically tell me it's not their problem, and I need to somehow find that lost package myself."

Great service from online purchase

"Bought mattress set online and it was delivered by MXD group. They did a fantastic job and the price at Sam's Club was the best by far. Very satisfied."
