Party in the club tonight.

By club, I mean Sam’s Club. By tonight, I mean all year. By party, I mean discount.

You feel me?

For a limited time, LivingSocial and Groupon have a $45 deal cocktail that includes a new one-year Sam’s Club Membership, $10 electronic gift card, $25 Vudu credit, free rotisserie chicken, free yeast rolls and free chocolate chunk cookies. Sounds more like a party in my stomach.

But wait — there’s another $30 option that includes a new one-year Sam’s Club Membership and a $10 electronic gift card.

Take note that if you buy the $45 option by March 22, you also get an additional $115 in instant savings on various items for 30 days.

How to Get the Sam’s Club Deals

If you don’t have one already, you’ll need to sign up for a Groupon or LivingSocial account. The offer is the same on both websites.

Once you register, select and purchase either the $45 or $30 offer.

After the purchase is validated, you will receive an email with membership and redemption instructions.

Once you complete the redemption process, you’ll receive your membership number, which you can use to shop online or in the mobile app. However, you will not get a physical membership card until you visit your local Sam’s Club.

There is no clear-cut time and day when this deal disappears, but both Groupon and LivingSocial say “Deal Ends 3 Days.” So that would be some time on Feb. 26. I suggest acting sooner rather than later to avoid missing out on this one.

Who Can Get the Sam’s Club Membership Deal?

Guess what? You don’t have to party alone. Each offer includes a free membership card for your spouse or another household member. Cheers to that.

Both deals are for new Sam’s Club members only and are not valid for anyone with a current membership. Also excluded are those who had a Sam’s Club membership that expired Aug. 1, 2017 or later.

The deal is good at more than 590 Sam’s Clubs locations in the U.S. Puerto Rico clubs are excluded from this deal.

Don’t Forget About the Fine Print

With every good deal comes fine print. For this one, you can only buy one deal per account.

The biggest catch is that your annual membership will automatically renew every year. In addition to an automatic renewal, Sam’s Club will charge you whatever the renewal fee is at that time, not the discounted rate. Currently, this membership costs $45, so if you buy the $30 deal, there’s a good chance you’ll pay at least $15 more at renewal time.

There’s more fine print to consider before purchasing, but as someone who just bought the $30 deal, I think the overall savings are totally worth it.

I don’t know about you, but there’s about to be a party in my pantry.
