Sam’s Club Provides ‘Shocking Values’
Sam’s Club's newly launched Shocking Values program consists of exclusive online daily deals offering up to 60 percent off regular retail prices on popular brands. According to the Wal-Mart Stores Inc. division, it's the first warehouse club retailer to roll out an online daily deal program.
Under the program, members can find new, limited-time deals every day starting at 9:00 a.m. CT by visiting Sam's Club’s website and mobile app, or they can opt to receive daily email notifications.
"Our members consider each visit to their neighborhood club and SamsClub.com a treasure hunt for unexpected savings, and Shocking Values is a new extension of that experience," noted Jamie Iannone, president and CEO of SamsClub.com. "These daily deals increase the value of a Sam's Club membership and provide savings that members won't find anywhere else."
Shocking Values products are selected according to members' interests, major trends and best-selling items at the company. Featured items in limited quantities will include consumer electronics, accessories and watches, kitchen appliances, apparel, home décor, and outdoor/garden products.
Other programs at Sam's Club include the recently relaunched Club Pickup – described by the retailer as another warehouse first – which enables members to shop online and pick up their orders at a nearby club, and services ranging from travel to tax preparation to identity theft protection.
Bentonville, Ark.-based Sam's Club operates 651 clubs in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
