Everything processed through our office will receive a $10.00 Sam's Gift Card. You will not be eligible to get the gift card if you do not send your payment through our office. Please remember that when you are in line checking out. If your Associate asks you if you want to do your renewal when you cash out, tell them NO so you can get a $10.00 Gift Card when you renew though our Association.

When the SAM's Club Representative comes into our office to process the payments, they will give us your $10.00 gift card and we will mail to you! New members will receive additional information from Sam's Club on how to get their membership card.

A representative from Sam's Club will be at the Annual Meeting on May 27th from 8:00AM through 9:00AM to process your renewal or take your application for membership. You will get your $10.00 gift card right then! If your Sam's Club membership will be expiring soon, this will be a good time to get it renewed.
