American Express announced yesterday (Oct. 1) that its cards are officially accepted at Sam’s Club in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
This partnership allows Amex to have a presence at Sam’s Club’s more than 650 locations, and a spot in the eighth largest U.S. retailer. As part of the card’s launch into the store, Amex is also offering card members a $25 statement credit after using an eligible Amex card on $45 or more at a new Sam’s Club membership in-store from now until Oct. 31.
“We are pleased to expand the places where our Card Members can shop, and starting today they have access to high-quality products, brands, and services at a great value from Sam’s Club,” said Anré Williams, President of Global Merchant Services at American Express. “Our offer is a terrific way to get Card Members excited about signing up for a new Sam’s Club membership. We look forward to working with Sam’s to deliver great benefits to our mutual consumer and small business customers.”
“The acceptance of the American Express Card underscores our commitment to bring greater ease and flexibility to our members’ shopping experience. American Express – known for their exceptional customer service, loyal, higher-spending Card Members and advocacy of small businesses – will help to extend the value of membership,” said Tracey Brown, chief member officer at Sam’s Club.
