Summer isn't officially over until Sept. 22, but Sam's Club is giving us a taste of autumn with its upcoming one-day-only Fall Preview Event. Just like with every other sale, this promotion has its fair share of great and not-so-great offers. That's why we've reviewed the 20-page ad scan to help you decipher which deals are worth bumping to the top of your list.

Fall Preview Event Details

Sam's Club Fall Preview Event

The one-day sale will take place on Saturday, August 5, 2017 with doors opening at 7 a.m. for all you early birds out there — but night owls can shop the deals even earlier starting at 12:01 a.m. ET online. Limited quantities are available on all of the store's featured products, so you're wise to snag any items you want sooner rather than later.

These in-club prices are for Sam's Club members only, but the store is always enticing new customers with membership promotions. As a general guideline, here's the cost breakdown:

Sam's Savings: $45 annual fee
Sam's Business: $45 annual fee (comes with early shopping hours and optional add-on memberships)
Sam's Plus: $100 annual fee (comes with early shopping hours, extra discounts on prescription drugs, extra protection service plans on select electronics, optional add-on memberships and $10 cash rewards for every $500 you spend)

Savings Highlights

4K TVs

Despite these decent prices on 4K TVs, we've seen the advertised $598 VIZIO SmartCast 60” Class 4K Ultra HD Home Theater Display w/ Chromecast built-in sell for just $548 at Sam's Club within the last year.

Gift Cards

Tire Discounts

  • $80 off your purchase of four new Pirelli or Goodyear passenger or light truck tires and $60 off tire installation with the purchase of four passenger or light truck tires on select brands (up to $140 off)

Tech for Less

Sam's Club $350 Gift Card The store is also offering savings on select Apple and Samsung smartphones coupled with gift card incentives:

As Slickdealer abadan points out, Best Buy is currently offering impressive discounts on the Galaxy S8 and S8+ (as much as $400 off when you buy and activate the phone with a monthly installment plan through Sprint). Depending on your preferred carrier, you may or may not want to shop elsewhere.

In a rare move, Sam's Club will have Apple's latest iPad Pro 10.5-inch 256 GB on sale for $673 (that's $75 off its regular retail price of $748). Floridians will be happy to know that the one-day sale overlaps with its "tax-free weekend when tablets under $750 are tax-exempt" (shout-out to CptObvious for this slick observation!) Other states participating in the tax-free initiative this weekend include Virginia, South Carolina, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Missouri, Louisiana, Iowa, Ohio and Arkansas. (Source)

Exclusive Online Savings

Exclusive Online Savings

Why deal with crowds when you can shop from the comfort of your own home in your coziest PJs, right? Sam's Club is offering its members exclusive online savings for added convenience, and here are some of the highlights:

Even better, these online specials all ship free of charge.

Pass on the $79.98 Haier 2.7 cu. ft. Compact Refrigerator (reg. $99.98) -- Walmart has this same model for $79. Also, save your money and skip the free $200 Sam's Club gift card with the purchase of a Samsung 75" Class 4K UHD Smart TV. The store has this model priced at $3,078 (much higher than at other competitors).

Extra Credit

Sam's Club Credit Card Finally, Sam's Club is advertising a three-day promotion that overlaps with its Fall Preview Event in which you can score $40 off your purchase of $100 or more when you open up a Sam's Club consumer credit card account and make your qualifying purchase anytime between Aug. 4 and Aug. 6. The funny thing is that the store's already running a similar (but better) promotion where new cardholders can receive a $45 statement credit on a $100 minimum purchase now through Aug. 31. These offers can't be combined, either (and yes, we definitely checked).

Ultimately, this is a great incentive to save even more during the one-day sale, but don't rush into opening up a new credit card account just based on this limited-time promotion.
