Sam’s Club offers free passes to military personnel, families
BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Sam’s Club is offering free shopping passes to members of the U.S. military in response to the government shutdown, which has also resulted in the shutdown of commissaries on military bases.
The club retailer said military personnel could obtain a pass for Sam’s Club locations near military bases by presenting a military identification or proof of past or present military service at Sam’s Club Member Services counters.
The retailer said it would continue to offer the passes to military personnel and their families until the government resumes domestic commissary operations, noting that they depend heavily on commissaries for low-priced home and business items.
