Along with many other retailers, Sam’s Club is rolling with the punches and changing its Black Friday format this year to safely serve its customers throughout this unusual shopping season. However, one thing hasn’t changed—hundreds of hot doorbuster deals available online and in your local club.
To minimize in-store crowding and online order fulfillment issues, Sam’s Club has spread its holiday savings event over the entire month of November. The discount extravaganza kicks off with “November Savings Week,” which runs from November 7th through the 15th.
After a five day reprieve to cool off and recollect your finances, the deals really start heating up with “Ten Days of Thanks-Savings,” which features markdowns on everything from apparel to home electronics. This extended Black Friday event begins on November 20th and runs all the way through the 29th.
Changing the format of Black Friday shopping is great for those who don’t have the time or gusto to duke it out in the aisles, but more time means more sales—and more decisions to make. Fortunately, we have combed through all 16 pages of the Sam’s Club Black Friday ad to highlight some of the best holiday savings of the year.
What Doorbuster Deals Can We Expect from Sam’s Club?
Sam’s Club is advertising a diverse selection of items from a variety of categories, with savings as low as $4 off and discounts as high as $500. Unsurprisingly, “home comfort” is the overarching theme of both seasonal sales. From practical home goods like pillowy couches and vacuum cleaners to in-home entertainment like video game consoles and speaker systems, this retailer wants to make the long winter ahead as cozy and fun as possible. To that end, we are featuring some of the best discounts on home entertainment, appliances and fun for the whole family.
November Savings Week
Gaming Consoles and Technology
- Best Value Item: Nintendo Switch Bundle – Sale Price: $339.98 | Reg. Price: $349.98
While a $10 discount may not seem remarkable, it’s worth noting that Nintendo does not promote significant Switch discounts often and these items cost over $380 when purchased individually. The Mario Kart 8 Switch bundle was a hot ticket item in many Black Friday 2019 sales, where it sold for $299. While that deal cost $40 less, it did not come with any accessories like the carrying case, SD card and 12-months of Nintendo Online membership.
- LG 4.1 Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer and 2 Rear Speakers – Sale Price: $149.88 | Reg. Price: $199.98
- Legends Ultimate Arcade – Sale Price: $449.98 | Reg. Price: $499.98
- Best Value Item: Night Owl 16-Channel 10 Camera 1080 Security System – Sale Price: $329 | Reg. Price: $449
This suite of 10 HD security cameras typically sells for around $400. It retailed for $379 during BJ’s Black Friday sale in 2018, which was the lowest recorded price—until this year’s November Savings Event at Sam’s Club, where it dropped an additional $50.
- Roomba 692 – Sale Price: $199.98 | Reg. Price: $299.98
- Ashbury Tufted Reversible Sectional Couch – Sale Price: $449 | Reg. Price: $749
- Best Value Item: Select Extreme Value $100 Gift Cards for $70, $50 Gift Cards for $35
Other individual items might have a steeper discount percentage, but think of the bigger picture. As we prepare for largely internet-facilitated holiday celebrations, some may find it easier to mail a bunch of gift cards than it is to painstakingly find, purchase, wrap and mail individual gifts. One $30 discount may not look like much, but saving $150 on a $500 purchase might just be the gift that keeps on giving.
- Oral-B iO Power Toothbrush – Sale Price: $199.98 | Reg. Price: $299.98
- Member’s Mark Stainless Steel Gas Patio Heater – Sale Price: $119.98 | Reg. Price: $149.98
Ten Days of Thanks-Savings
- Best Value Item: Backyard Discovery Oceanview Cedar Swing Set – Sale Price: $999 | Reg. Price: $1,299
Kids love screens. Sure, there are plenty of screens available at impressively low prices, but there’s certainly something to be said for blowing off some steam outside after a grueling day at Zoom school. This online-only deal has only been beaten once, where it sold for $849 during Sam’s Club’s Black Friday 2018 sale.
- NBA Jam Deluxe Arcade – Sale Price: $399.98 | Reg. Price: $449.98
- Table Top Arcade – Sale Price: $179.98 | Reg. Price: $199.98
- Best Value Item: De’Longhi Magnifica Espresso Machine – Sale Price: $429 | Reg. Price: $529
Even considering the couple of “your mileage may vary” deals that knocked this espresso machine below the $500 mark (to a tantalizing $499), this is handily the lowest price we’ve seen on the De’Longhi Magnifica. Make those dark mornings and long nights your oyster with a fully automated two-cup espresso machine.
- Wireless Weather Station with Atomic Time and Date – Sale Price: $24.98 | Reg. Price: $29.98
- Zero Gravity Massage Chair – Sale Price: $999 | Reg. Price: $1,199
- Best Value Item: Samsung 3.1 Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer – Sale Price: $197.99 | Reg. Price: $317.99
There have been scattered in-store deals and huge markdowns on refurbished models in the past, but new versions of this Prime Day favorite rarely dip below $200. If you’re patient and frugal, it might be worth waiting for another drop to the $170 to $185 range.
- Garmin Fenix 5 Plus Smartwatch – Sale Price: $329 | Reg. Price: $399
- Epson EcoTank 2760 All-in-One Printer with Bonus Black Ink – Sale Price: $219.87 | Reg. Price: $249.87
