Sam's Club Creates App so Customers Can Bypass Checkout Lanes
Sam’s Club launched its Scan & Go mobile app allowing members to use their smartphone to completely bypass the checkout lane at any Sam’s Club nationwide.
According to a release from the company, the Scan & Go app allows Sam’s Club members to scan as they go, pay from their phone, then simply show a digital receipt as they leave. For those mindful of holiday budgets, the new app also allows users to easily track spending throughout their trip.
To get started, Android and iPhone users download the free app, which includes a digital version of their membership card. Once inside their local Sam’s Club, they can use the app to scan UPC codes on items in their cart. When a member is done shopping, they pay directly on their phone from anywhere in the club, bypass the register and show their digital receipt to an associate on their way out.
“We understand the holidays can create a major time crunch for our members, so we’re using technology to ease the stress of holiday shopping,” said Rosalind Brewer, president and CEO of Sam’s Club. “With Scan & Go, members can skip the checkout line and give themselves the gift of more time with their families. Members can also use the app at a number of savings events throughout November and December, saving money and time.”
