In turn I’ve made new meals I hadn’t tried before like Chicken Cordon Bleu, Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo and Chicken Chimichangas. It’s fabulous to create new meals the family loves and…saving by purchasing the items in bulk.”  “One in three members purchases a grocery product on the same day they’ve tasted it,” added Baldwin. “We are excited to welcome the communities we serve to indulge in Tastes ‘n’ Tips and see firsthand how Sam’s Club prepares members for outdoor fun and entertaining.” For information about Sam’s Club U.S. locations, visit SamsClub.com/clublocator. * Non-members will be directed to the Member Services desk upon entrance to receive a temporary membership pass that allows them to shop with no fees during this three-day event.**Based on estimated annualized savings on items Members purchased in select categories derived from a survey conducted in 30 U.S. markets between 1/2/2012 and1/27/2012 comparing our regular unit prices to regular and shelf-visible sale and loyalty discount unit prices of selected non-Club competitors, including, but not limited to, grocery stores and mass retailers, but excluding Walmart®. About Sam’s Club Sam’s Club, a division of Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. , is the nation’s eighth largest retailer and a leading membership warehouse club offering superior products and services to more than 47 million Members in clubs across the U.S., as well as in Brazil, China and Mexico.
