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.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?

But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
