The Scan & Go app allows Sam’s Club members to scan as they go, pay from their phone, then simply show a digital receipt as they leave. For those mindful of holiday budgets, the new app also allows users to easily track spending throughout their trip.

To get started, Android and iPhone users download the free app, which includes a digital version of their membership card. Once inside their local Sam’s Club, they can use the app to scan UPC codes on items in their cart. When a member is done shopping, they pay directly on their phone from anywhere in the club, bypass the register and show their digital receipt to an associate on their way out.

“We understand the holidays can create a major time crunch for our members, so we’re using technology to ease the stress of holiday shopping,” said Rosalind Brewer, president and CEO of Sam’s Club. “With Scan & Go, members can skip the checkout line and give themselves the gift of more time with their families. Members can also use the app at a number of savings events throughout November and December, saving money and time.”

A season filled with exclusive events kicks off in clubs at 7 a.m. on Sat., Nov. 12. On this day, every Sam’s Club across the country will host a One Day Only event with some of the lowest prices of the season on electronics and items for the home (while supplies last and no rain checks). Deals and online-only specials will be available that day starting at 12:01 a.m. EST at SamsClub.com for direct-to-home delivery. New this year, members who download the Sam’s Club app get an exclusive sneak peek of all the One Day Only and Black Friday deals.
