Charles and Beverly Hicks have been loyal Sam’s Club members for 25 years, starting in 1992 when the club in Woodbridge, VA, first opened. Charles got his first membership through his company. It wasn’t until the couple started having health complications that they fully understood the life-changing savings they could receive from a Sam’s Plus® Membership. Charles says for years they had been using their health insurance coverage to fill all their prescriptions. Each month they were spending an extraordinary amount of money at a competing pharmacy across town. By chance, he stopped by to visit with the Pharmacist at Sam’s Club two years ago and was shocked by what he learned.

“We were spending a lot of money at the other pharmacy,” Charles says.

“The first day I signed up for a Sam’s Plus Membership, I saved over the cost of the membership. I couldn’t believe it! They have really helped me.”

“I am well satisfied in dealing with the Pharmacy. I’ll never go anywhere else,” Charles says.

Charles says his wife was recently put on a new medication that cost around $800. He says the Pharmacist asked if he could take a few minutes to see if he could help them with the cost. By the time Charles had finished shopping, the Pharmacist was able to find a lower price.

“A three-month supply was $800. In no time at all he got the price to $90,” Charles says.

“That’s the way they are. I mean, they help you. They feel like family to you, the way they treat you.”
