Re: Visa AND Mastercard

Sams Club used to only take Discover.  They're kinda special.

 

Also I know for a fact the one by me accepts Visa as well.  Or at least they did a year ago.

Re: Visa AND Mastercard

I used Visa on the Sam's website last month. Not sure if the warehouses take it.

Re: Visa AND Mastercard

Sams Club takes everything including Visa, their old policy of only accepting Visa online ended over a year ago.

It seems like Visa has really come out the winner.

 

First they were the only one of the four not in Costco (A) or Sam's (MC/D). Now they're in both and Costco's only warehouse option.

Re: Visa AND Mastercard

My understanding is that for Sams Club, Visa is acceptable only if its a debit card, not a bankcard

That's the way it used to be before they started taking Visa Credit; it changed February 1, 2016.

 

Since the change I've used all of my Visa credit cards in-club at one time or another; I used my USAA Limitless there just a couple of weeks ago.
