The Drop app is offering a Super Boost when buying a Sam’s Club membership which has increased the return to 45,000 points. That’s worth $45 and gets even better because the membership appears to come with a $20 Sam’s Club eGift card and free rotisserie chicken.
It’d be best to be quick if you’re interested in this deal because it might end today (July 26).
- Buy Sam’s Club membership after tapping through from the Drop app to get 45,000 points (worth $45).

- Expiry date unknown (might end today – July 26, 2020)

You can tend to get a Sam’s Club membership for at least break even cost year-round due to different offers, from offers directly from Sam’s Club to Groupon to Amex Offers stacked with shopping portal cashback and more. This offer is a little better than most other options though because it appears to be a profitable deal which also comes with free food.
The Drop offer itself is break even because the 45,000 points you earn is worth $45 which is the same as the cost of a Sam’s Club membership. How it gets better is that when tapping through to Sam’s Club from the Drop app, the top of the page mentions that you’ll get a $20 Sam’s Club eGift card and a free rotisserie chicken when you join.
One thing that’s a little bit of a shame is that you have to actually tap through from Drop which means you can’t earn cashback through a shopping portal. It might be possible to stack this offer further though. One of my wife’s Chase business cards had a Sam’s Club membership Chase Offer recently which gave $10 back when buying a new membership. That’s since expired, but seeing as Chase Offers are targeted, there could be a similar offer with a different expiry date floating around on some cards. There’s no guarantee about that, but it’d be worth checking.
If you’re interested in this Sam’s Club membership deal, it’d be best to purchase it ASAP. Seeing as the offer is a Super Boost, the increased 45,000 point rate is unlikely to last long. Drop doesn’t list an expiry date for the increased earnings, but I suspect it’ll end either today (July 26) or tomorrow.
I’ve earned points through Drop a few times, but I’m not too familiar with the ins and outs of how it works. I believe normally you have to pay with a card you’ve linked in the app (similar to Dosh), but seeing as you’d be tapping through to Sam’s Club from the app, it might track in a similar way to a shopping portal. That might not be the case though, so it’d be best to pay with a card that’s linked in the app just in case.
