BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Sam's Club here said yesterday it is introducing a new membership program for college students. With a valid college identification and a collegiate email address, students can obtain a one-year collegiate membership at Sam's for $40 — the same price paid by Advantage (non-business) members and $5 more than the $35 paid by business members. Each card comes with a complimentary add-on card so roommates or housemates can share the membership, the company said. In addition, Sam's said it is providing collegiate members with a $15 gift card to help offset the cost of their first purchase. "Many of our clubs serve college towns, and this new college-specific membership will help us answer the needs of both parents and students to make the most of their budgets," said Mike Turner, vice president of membership at Sam's.
