We are members of SAM's and have not verified this yet, but it's worth looking into....

 

While the commissary is closed, Sam's Club is allowing all military members (active and retired) with a valid ID card to shop without a Sam's Club membership. All they need to do is go to the customer service counter with their ID card, and they will be provided a number to use while shopping.

yanno Okinawa was the only place we ever actually used the commisary, have always found it cheaper to shop elsewhere, and we've used Sams for the majority of our shopping for quite some time now

I like Sam's Club.  Good value.  Good products.  Nice meat department.  Also huge scallops.

I love their croissants and with the deli meat selection and cheeses they make a helluva sammich, not to mention I'm a Monster-holic and they have the cases of it cheapest anywhere

I haven't been in a Sams Club in years. Closest one to me is about 20-25 miles away.

While that is a nice gesture on the part of Sam's Club....

 

I refuse to shop in any Wal*Mart so Sam's is out for me. I'm not supporting low wage companies who send loads of our money to China.

20-25 miles away...that's it, heck that's closer than the next real town.....we have to drive 45 min to get there and it's in another state.... :hysterical3: :hysterical3: :hysterical3:
 Hell, it's 110 miles to the "big city" and we make that drive once a month if not 2 or 3 times......

25 miles is a short jaunt across town.... :lol: :lol: :lol:

As I understand at first this was only SAMs clubs around military bases but has now been extended to all locations. It is not a free member ship but you can shop there without a membership on you ID card and don't pay the 10% surcharge either.

So why don't we have the private sector run these commissaries ALL the time?

They are ran at a profit....they employ lots of spouses & kids and make lots of money.....shutting em down is a HUGE political statement shatting on the military....

Yep, we get the majority of meat from there.....HH6 took me there last weekend...and she hates when I go, dropped about $250 on food.... :hysterical3: :hysterical3: :hysterical3:

Any confirmation that Costco is not allowing non-member military to shop? If so I'm going to check with work today and see if they'll allow it at least in my warehouse.
