Sams Club GC Shipping Added(Hat Tip to Manhar for the email)

Good evening everyone. Earlier today, I read Doctor of Credit’s post about Sam’s Club: Gift Cards Gone AWOL, Credits Posting & More. It seems like Sam’s Club is having some difficulties handling their AMEX Offer. Then a few minutes ago, I received an email alerting me to changes in the gift card shopping experience. It looks like Sam’s Club is now adding shipping costs to orders of Sam’s Club Gift Cards. That ain’t right!

Sams Club GC Shipping Added IncreasedAfter adding a Sam’s Club Gift Card to my shopping cart, I entered my zipcode for Northern California and the estimated shipping was $6.06. Previously, all gift card shipments were free.

After logging into my Sam’s Club account, I went back to the shopping cart to see if the shipping option was the same. I actually thought the shipping would go back to free, since I am a Sam’s Club member, but to my surprise, the shipping estimate actually went up to .69.

Sams Club GC Shipping HonoluluI played around with a few different zipcode to see what I could find out. I entered Honolulu (96803) and the shipping estimate was .37. Crazy!

I then entered the zipcode for Anchorage (99501) and the shipping estimate was $65.01. It costs more to ship the gift card than the value loaded onto the gift card!

I looked up the Anchorage City Hall address and entered that as the shipping address. I was given 3 different shipping options ranging from $53.83 to $93.31.

I proceeded to the last page to see if the total would change, but it stayed the same. I *decided not to* place the gift card order. Sorry friends up north, there is no $50 Sam’s Club gift card coming your way.

What does this all mean? Clearly Sam’s Club has some issues with their shopping cart and shipping estimations. Is this limited to only gift cards? I have no idea. Is this a temporary issue? Hopefully. Will it be fixed soon? Maybe. Is this funny? Absolutely. Stay tuned folks, we will see what happens next. If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Have a great weekend everyone!
