You can get a Basic Sam's Club membership for $45 with $45 in credit to be used on an in-store Sam's Club purchase within the first 60 days. This will remove the $20 "handling fee" (ie. 10% surcharge for non-membership), but you will still be charged $12-ish for shipping.
The Slickdeals page for Sam's Club membership says the deal is good for in-store purchase only. Below is one that's good for online purchase. I'm guessing SD won't like it that I'm posting, so I've put spaces in the URL. Remove them and visit. There's no sort of referral in the URL, it's just the coupon code that activates the $45 store credit.
