If you spent your weekend wandering around parts of town you’ve never seen before and killing your phone’s battery (i.e., playing Pokemon Go), you’re in for a sweet deal.


Sam’s Club is offering Pokemon Go players a free day pass to shop in its stores — and a free cookie to boot.

Pika your interest? Here’s how it works.

How to Get a Free Sam’s Club One-Day Pass

Like the game itself, participating in Sam’s Club’s deal couldn’t be simpler.

Just head to your local store and show your phone to an associate — with the app installed, of course.

…That’s it.

In return, you’ll get a free cookie from the bakery to replace some of those calories you’re walking off.

But best of all, you’ll get a free one-day shopping pass — and access to a ton of bargains!

“This pass waives the 10% upcharge” — what non-members normally have to pay for shopping privileges — “and is available at the Member Services desk,” writes Sam’s Club corporate communications director Tara Raddohl.

Plus, who knows? While you browse the aisles, you might even find a Pokemon or two hanging out on top of all those great deals you’re sure to catch.

Either way: Happy hunting! Both deals are available until July 31.

Your Turn: What Pokemon Go team are you on? Valor, Mystic, Instinct or “Get Off My Lawn”?
