I really wanted to voice this to Sam's, but they do not make it easy to contact them. I just talked to a guy at the membership desk and he told me to call 800-Walmart and that i could leave a message about Sam's Club.
I tried that. No such option. Anyway, this past year we found Sam's to be more like a Big Lots store. Some of the items we had been buying there are no longer available.
Example: Member's Mark aspirin 1000 count. Now your choice is to buy the name brand that costs at least 6 times as much. We had bought our daughter a Hoover Cyclonic sweeper and she liked it. So we went to buy one for ourselves (and mind you this was a new stock item) less than a month later, and Sam's had gotten rid of everything Hoover.
My husband had been buying CD/DVD labels there. Now he can't find any sign of them. And then to top everything off, we bought an LCD TV there early in November and the price went down over a week later and Sam's new policy is to NOT adjust the price if it is over SEVEN DAYS since you purchased the item. Most stores will give you an adjustment within 30 days.
We've been members for years, but Sam's has been going downhill fast lately and we have no desire to re-up our membership. I'd be curious to know if Costco is going the same route, because there is a Costco practically right next to the Sam's Club in the Cincinnati area.
