The Sam’s Club credit card is one of the most rewarding credit lines that consumers can have in their possession. When you have the Mastercard®, you can earn up to $5,000 in cash back each year.
It offers 5% back on fuel purchases, 3% on travel and dining, and 1% for everything else you buy with your Sam’s Club credit card. As an extra benefit, it comes with no annual fee associated with the account. You will also receive zero foreign transaction fees with this card.
Your Sam’s Club credit card has a second purpose. It also works as your membership card, which means you could potentially reduce your costs and fees in other ways.
The only way to start using your new credit line is to activate your card.
