If you buy a full set of four tires from Sam’s Club, you can save a good deal of cash. Sam’s Club offers $70 off a set of Michelin tires and $80 off Pirelli, Goodyear, and BFGoodrich tire sets. And you can order your tires online even if you’re not a member, but note that nonmembers will pay more.
Those tires you ordered online? The ones you saved $80 bucks on? You can go to Sam’s Club to have them installed on your car. And it will even take your old tires and properly dispose of them for you.
Competitive pricing on rental cars
Sam’s Club members can get excellent prices on rental cars from four major companies, Enterprise, Hertz, Dollar, and National. Just book your car through the Sam’s Club rental car portal, which is an easy interface where you punch in travel dates and location, and it shows you the best prices available on a variety of vehicles.
A huge variety of car parts and accessories
From car batteries to floor mats to bike racks to sun shades, Sam’s Club offers dozens of different products for vehicles. Some are necessities, like batteries, while others are simply good to have on hand, like a device that can jump a dead battery.
