Sam’s Scan and Go App — UPDATED

scan-and-goUPDATE#2:  On 11/17/16 it worked perfectly.  What an Excellent App!!

No more cashier lines for me!  I’ll just scan what I want, pay via phone app, and show the door-guard my electronic receipt.  At least that’s what I’ve been told — I just loaded up this app and feel like buying something at Sam’s right now just to see if it works.  Alas, it will not work for age-restricted items, so I may stop buying wine at Sam’s.

The app will only become active when you’re in a Sam’s store, and first requires inputs for the numbers and billing address for a credit card, and your Sam’s club password and the e-mail address used for your Sam’s account.  I allowed it to know my location, and this may be required.  Although the app won’t ask (at least the Android one didn’t), all of these things can be input before going to the store by hitting those three bars in the upper left corner and then using the menu.

Works for both Android (4.1 and up) and Apple (iOS 8.0 or later) phones:
