    I've been keeping tabs on this drama. Very curious.

    Edit: I'd concur. Even getting something as simple as stamps requires going to the on-person checkout, where the cashier will ask for ID. I'd say only use self-checkout, and even then, it's dicey. The associates are definitely watching, and some self-checkout scanners have a tough time reading account barcodes from your phone. If you're sure you want to use one, may as well print out the barcode to use at the scanner (and keep it under wraps, as scanning that slip of paper can look weird). It all just sucks because my main interest was video games, which are all locked up. Go for groceries and the like.

    Either way, you're our Sam's Club mascot around here, and I thank your reporting from the field. At some point, I'd love to order a proper $100ish account (just for groceries), but I'm too much of a script kiddie to have a good ratio yet. :p

    Thanks for the info.

    I agree with getting groceries. You have to eat and they're not likely to suspect food purchases. Can the rewards be used with the scan and go app?

    I'll send some accounts your way just for that input. The thing is only certain phones are scanable. What i've found is the scanning guns that are blue/black work while the white/gray ones do not work. If you buy prepaid phones, make sure they are big screen ones otherwise you will look suspicious buying $100+ worth of stuff using a crappy $10 tracphone to scan. I've found that these "burner" wifi phones are fast and work well with sams andddddd if they for what ever reason take your phone, it's no biggie, just keep a 4 pin passcode on it and you're good to go. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Boost-Motorola-Prepaid-MOTO-E-Smartphone/44697367

    I've been to many SAMs, a lot of different times. I've only done self check out, not worth getting blacklisted on a local SAMs. They got some cool stuff you can self check out, there really is no need to go after locked up items. They got groceries, gift cards, some electronics, clothes and shoes. I feel great just knowing I can walk into SAMs and not be on a budget. I try not to use more than 1 account per day, if I see something I really want but don't have enough for, I will just go to another SAMs and continue shopping where I left off, or go back the next day. Just don't abuse it and you will be ok.

    Only once have I "paid" for my stuff, walked to my car and saw a police car. I'm 99% sure they weren't there for me, but I'm staying low key from that location for a while.
