BUT. It auto renews, they will charge your credit card and it will be at the regular rate next year. No idea how difficult it will be to unsubscribe if desired.
My Capital One credit card has the ability to generate a "Virtual Card" for a specified merchant (Sam's Club, in this case). That Virtual Card can be locked or deleted with a simple mouse click at any time. I use Virtual Cards for online purchases; they are especially useful for defeating auto-renew situations. If the card is locked, any attempt to place a charge against it will be declined.

I had a SAMs card for over 25 years. I dropped it when COSTCO finally opened here.
I still like SAMs but greatly prefer COSTCO for most things. SAMs does have things that COSTO doesn't have.
2 years ago I got fliers in the mail to get a new SAMS membership with a really low price plus a free $20 gift card.
I suggest you who had a card before just walk into the SAMs and go to the customer service desk. I told my story to the lady and she said no problem, there is a limit for a period of time, I think she said 2 years and renewed me right them and there.
I'm sure that they make discount offers that differ in details, time limits, terms and conditions.
So, go in and talk nice to the customer service clerk. Be honest and upfront, you might be surprised.
SAMs has rules of course, but they also want your business and your $$$. BS walks but $$$ talks. .
About 4 years ago I think it was my Discover card offered a free 1 yr. membership. Joined and it was legit. I enjoy using Sams because it is close by and I can order online and go there for curbside pickup which Costco at this time does not offer. Both places are about 2 miles from my home.
