Managers continue to deny that membership is going away and say its here to stay. I cant understand how that is possible. SalesPro 2.0 is another joke. Membership is not what it was years back. All that's brought in is a few renewals. They continue to have Business Focus once or twice a month and there is no reason to have a Business Membership any longer. More places are refusing to allow them in because of No Solicitation policies. What is HO thinking? Now until the end of February Memberships are practically being given for free with the $45 off of a $45 purchase.

My IPAD was not working!!!!
Our Club has not received any new iPads yet. Anyone else using them yet, sure hope they work!
How is your business focus going ? Received New I pads today but no one bothered to even look at them .
They are offering this great deal only if you use your credit or debit card! Hahaha so they can get all those auto renewals 😁
It's the time of year to run a great promotion to get new memberships! People are broke after Christmas so Sam's is giving them a deal they can't refuse. That's how marketing is supposed to work.
Marketing is their boots on the ground and the face of the local Sam's Club to the business community. If your people can't figure it out get new ones who can help your club.
Just because they have to auto renew doesn't mean as soon as they get their $45 off they won't go in and take auto renew off
X5vCB8F-qbw you are probably right. There is a reason for giving away those memberships.
Just think about the $45 off $45 promotion. With this promotion they have to auto renew. The more renewals the more money Corporate receives. They will need marketing department less and less. I think with the first sales pro was the beginning of the marketing Fazeout.
