During a recent trip to Sam's Club in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, when we went to check out, we were unpleasantly surprised to find out that we could not use my parents Sam's Club Membership Card and my Ohio EBT Card together.I know countless other families that were able to, but we were told that we couldn't, and that I had to have a membership there as well.

I honestly cannot afford to purchase a membership from them with my limited $355 a month income (for 2 people), beint unemployed does not allow me the luxuries that others can afford.Can you remedy this awefule issue?

Review about: Sams Club Membership.

Hate hate hate!I know that the kind of people that make comments like "coach purse and iPhone" are just really hateful!

Those people would look down on anyone using foodstamps no matter what purse, phone or clothes they are wearing! If you are hateful do yourself a favor and donate a small amount of your fabulous time to doing something helpful to mankind.

Selfless activity is richly rewarding and will definatly detour you from the senseless slander of others!Bless the world!

I can't believe this thread is still active.I commented a few weeks ago but its buried now.

Since my comment is the most relevant to the original post I will re-post it. Especially since the thread is really off topic now. "Just like the last thread about Sams denying Food Stamp cards, if your name is not on it you may not use it. That is the law.

Don't get mad because Sams sometimes follows the law. Just because you have been getting away with it does not make it legal. Just because everyone you know has been getting away with it does not make it legal. I'm surprised that this is happening so much because at my Sams it is clear that the managers don't want us to get involved.

As far as your Dad's membership being denied that is because he is a member and you are not. If you want to shop there buy a membership. If you don't like their policies don't shop there. Other possible solutions are to go shopping with your Dad or have him put you on as a complimentary membership.

BTW, you call this a luxury?

If you are on food stamps are you really in a position to indulge in luxuries?If you can't calculate how Sams gives you the best value for your dollars spent there then you really should not be shopping there."

Some people are on food stamps for a real darn good reason.Then of course you have your scamers but you will always have those lazy SOB.

People who have worked their whole life and paid taxes their whole life ends up with a medical condition such as cancer or brain tumors and those are things you have no control over so your job is taken from you and the $$$$ you had goes to your living expenses along with medical bills.SO for all you dumb fools saying all these ignorant comments about food stamps I PRAY YOU NEVER GET A MEDICAL CONDITION OR SOMETHING HAPPENS TO YOU OR YOUR FAMILY AND YOU END UP @ZZED OUT NEEDING HELP...

Its amazing to see all the negative comments.Answer the question to help in this situation.

Losere you said thank Obama for unemployment. First its President Obama and when he took office he was given a handful of *** to fix from President Bush. Think about it if he hadn't bailed out the car factory think of the countless men, women, and children who would be without homes or food. Looked what he did with health care doesn't everyone deserve to be seen and treated for health problems.

The Sams employees, go stock some shelves and shut the heck up. Finally, for the lady who commented about her and her husband being laid off. Well honey if you were already making a nice salary than you should have been able to set back money. This person may have worked minimal wage and we all know that's very little to nothing.

You people need to get God in your life and stop looking down on people unless you are trying to help them. For the record I have a bachelors and masters in Social Work, Masters in Education, and a Doctorate in Education.

So I'm not lazy, and I feel our government needs to help students more with college education and loan debt.Now what?

Forgot to say...I worked 2 jobs when I worked at Sams.

About 70 hours a week. So i had some serious issues with those feeling entitled.. and abusing the system.

You dont save enough to justify the membership fee if you are on food stamps. Some have the fee paid..

so thats fine.. but omg.. what is it with the cakes??? Here in the south especially, it is huge in the African-American culture to order cakes for every little thing.

When my kids were young I learned how to make a cake.

for under 5 bucks.. for their parties..

If you have no decorating talent just use cupcakes!!!cheap and easy and tatse better than store bought.

Sams Club is a membership club.You must have a membership to shop there.

You cannot use someone else's membership. Sometimes a busy harried cashier will not notice, but that doesn't mean it's ok.

I have seen LOTS of food stamp abuse here. DAILY.

People using foos stamnps to buy party stuff... to buy supplies for their business (subway) shopping with a friend who pays with the food stamp card ...on and on and on...

coach purse...

newest iphone..food stamps!!

I have no problem with you being on food stamps.Do they even use that term any more?

I will assume you are an honest hardworking person, and hope that is true. However, I can not stand your opinion of entitlement that makes you so indignent that they will not make special rules for you. You are not suppose to use your father's card. You are not a member.

Do I fault you for trying? Not really. Do I think your outrage at being "caught" is ridiculous? Absolutely.

Do you use your family's gym membership also? Check on seeing if you can be added to your father's account as a family member.

Otherwise, ask for it for Christmas, if it is so important to you.I do wish you the best, but hope you get over this "the world owes me" attitude.
