Compare Costco, Sam's Club and BJ's Wholesale Military Discount Programs

10 August 2018 by

Have you been considering a Warehouse Club Membership? 

Warehouse Clubs can provide a great way for families to save money.  If you are lucky enough to live in a military town that has all three of the big warehouse clubs (Costco, Sam's Club and BJ's Wholesale) here is what you need to know about their military discount programs.  



Our family has had a membership at Costco for over a decade.  What I love about Costo is that they have always stood behind their products.  In my experience, if you aren't satisfied with the product they will take it back no questions asked.  I also have found that Costco takes pride in their products and offers the highest in quality for a great price. 

There are certain things that we have always bought at Costco--our tv's, computers, jewelry, household items such as toilet paper, paper towel, laundry detergent, patio furniture, plants, organic foods to name a few.  I am a huge fan of Costco and would highly recommend a membership to anyone considering it.

Costco has launched a New Military Membership Program 

Qualified new members who sign up and enroll in auto renewal will receive a $20 Costco Shop Card.* To receive this promotion, military members must validate their identity through ID.me.

Sam's Club

Since our family is pretty devoted to Costco we have not gotten another membership from another warehouse.  However, I have heard good things about Sam's Club as well.  I also have a couple friends who have both the Costco and Sam's Club memberships because they like the variety in products.  Sam's Club also offers a Military Discount Program and you can sign up below for this offer.

BJ's Wholesale Club

Our family does not live close to a BJ's so I can't really give much opinion on their products.  BJ's offers members a lot of product variety with over 7000+ Products at 201 Clubs in 15 States.

Military Discount Program

BJ's would like to show appreciation of the military community.  Veterans and active military personnel and their families save over 25% off Membership plus get a $10 off BJ’s coupon for your first shopping.
