This covert shopping strategy lets you order all of your grocery needs and holiday gifts from an app, while a Sam's Club team member does the shopping for you. Better yet, there's no minimum purchase required, meaning you can swing by, pick up your 20 rolls of toilet paper, and be on your merry way!

As card-carrying members already know, Sam's Club is a Walmart-owned store that requires a membership to purchase bulk items at a discount. Previously, the curbside pickup was only offered to the VIPs of discount shopping, Plus members. Now, for a limited time, every member has access to curbside pickup, but Plus members still receive a royal perk: they can pick up their orders three hours earlier than the rest, starting at 7 a.m., Monday through Saturday.
