There’s a lot to love about Sam’s Club. Not only can you stock up on some of your favorites for usually cheaper prices, but they also have things you can’t get anywhere else — like a nine-pound bucket of Oreo frosting, which alone is obviously worth the cost of a membership.
The best things by far, however, are the free samples. Getting to try new things before you buy them is a huge plus and it actually makes grocery shopping pretty fun. Now, in honor of National Ice Cream Month, Sam’s Club is extending its free samples to cafe items.
On July 15 and 16 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., all Sam’s Clubs in the U.S. will be handing out Icee float samples. According to a Sam’s Club spokesperson, the treat has been a favorite of employees for years, but the company is now revealing the secret to its members.
You’ll find a special Icee float cart at your local store, where there will be three flavors: frozen cherry, frozen Pepsi and frozen blue raspberry. All are topped with new Member’s Mark vanilla ice cream.
Don’t have a Sam’s Club membership? Don’t worry, you can still get an Icee float because the Sam’s Club Cafe is open to the general public. And if you can’t get to a store on July 15 or 16, the company is serving 20-ounce Icee floats for 99 cents all summer long!
Speaking of perks for non-members, there’s only one thing better than ice cream that you can also get at Sam’s Club without a membership: booze. That’s right, you can head to Sam’s Club without a membership and still get the store’s prices on wine, beer and spirits!
If you’re craving more samples or have been thinking of joining Sam’s Club for real, just visit the company’s website to learn how you can join up.
