Sam’s Club announces Cyber Monday details: Everything you need to know

Sam’s Club is one of several large retailers taking a stand and keeping its stores closed on Thanksgiving Day so its employees can spend time with their families. It’s a nice gesture that we’re sure is appreciated by Sam’s Club staff, and it might even give consumers some extra incentive to shop there this holiday season. The company’s Black Friday sale will begin early in the morning on Black Friday, November 27th, and you can check out all of the key details on Sam’s Club’s big Black Friday 2015 sale in our earlier post.

Of course, the fun doesn’t end there, and Sam’s Club on Wednesday announced details for its big Cyber Monday and Cyber Week sales. More →

Sam’s Club kicks off Black Friday sales early with a one-day-only event next week

Somehow, despite the fact that it’s still the first week of November, we’ve already written half a dozen stories about Black Friday 2015. I blame both myself and the rampant consumerism of the American people, but now that the flood gates have opened, we might as well continue to feed the beast until the shopping season wraps up.

Sam’s Club to sell Wi-Fi XOOM for $539?

Sam’s Club to sell Wi-Fi XOOM for $539?

The latest, cost-effective rumor surrounding the Wi-Fi Motorola XOOM is sure to pique the interest of the few penny-pinching readers. Blog Droid-Life is reporting that Sam’s Club (of all places) will be selling the Wi-Fi XOOM for a cool $539. This undercuts the $599 price tag Motorola Mobility’s CEO, Sanjay Jha, slapped on the device just two weeks ago. A 10.1-inch Honeycomb tablet with 32GB of storage, and host of other high-end features, sounds pretty good to us — especially at $539. Thoughts? More →

iPad 2 will be available from Best Buy, Walmart and Sam’s Club at launch

iPad 2 will be available from Best Buy, Walmart and Sam’s Club at launch

Though not confirmed on all counts, it looks like Apple’s iPad 2 will be available from several third-party retailers at launch. Best Buy, the nation’s largest consumer electronics retailer, has already confirmed that it will carry Apple’s second-generation iOS tablet starting March 11th, as was expected. 9to5 Mac now reports that in addition to Best Buy, nationwide retail giants Walmart and Sam’s Club will both carry the iPad 2 at launch as well. Both chains already have iPad 2 SKU numbers showing in their respective inventory systems, the blog’s source claims. The report might help quell rumors of potential launch inventory shortages that have been swirling for the past month.

UPDATE: Walmart just made it official — and it will offer each model for $1 under MSRP. More →

RadioShack to lose over 400 Sams Club kiosks

By on January 11, 2011 at 4:23 AM.

RadioShack to lose over 400 Sams Club kiosks

In a Securities and Exchange Commission filing made this past Friday, RadioShack stated that it will be losing more than 400 kiosks located in Sam’s Club stores across the country. The closures will result from an expiring contract between RadioShack and Wal-Mart Stores Inc., owner of the Sam’s Club chain. Sam’s Club will take over the operation of the kiosks by June 30th, when the contract is set to expire. RadioShack currently sells cell phones and service contracts through the aforementioned kiosks, and it represents a decent chunk of business for the retailer — through the first nine months of 2010, RadioShack reported $20.6 million in profits from its kiosk business. RadioShack plans to increase the number of Target kiosks it operates in an effort to curtail losses, but the company estimates that its kiosk profits will still decline by between $10 million and $15 million in 2011.

iPhone 4 only $147 at Sam’s Club; iPhone 3GS is $47

iPhone 4 only $147 at Sam’s Club; iPhone 3GS is $47

Following RadioShack’s lead, it appears as though Sam’s Club will be offering discounts on Apple smartphones for the holidays. A purportedly leaked memo states that the discount retailer will be selling Apple’s iPhone 4 (16 GB) for $147 with a 2-year AT&T service contract. This represents the lowest price we’ve seen to date on a new iPhone 4, though only by $3. Sam’s Club will also apparently give Apple’s iPhone 3GS the same $52 discount, with new units costing just $47 during the promotional period. According to the unconfirmed memo, the sale is set to run from now until Christmas Day. More →

You’re still stuffed from a supersized feast the day before but you manage to pry yourself out of bed hours ahead of sunrise.

As you exit your home and click the unlock button on your car’s key fob, your mind strays as you think of a hundred different reasons to go back inside and get back in bed. But you can’t. Your local retailers are calling to you from afar. The urge to save is too strong.  There is no turning back… It’s Black Friday.

If you plan on going to war this Friday, you had better be armed — and that’s where your pals at BGR come in. In our Black Friday 2010 guide, we lay out your 10 best local deal wielders and give you links to all the ammo you need. This way, instead of flying blind, you can put together a strategy and score all the gadgets you can carry at the deepest discounts of the year. Good luck, be safe, and Godspeed. More →

Verizon Wireless, Sam’s Club, TARGET: gearing up to launch Motorola Droid, BlackBerry Storm 2, BlackBerry Curve 2, more

Verizon Wireless, Sam’s Club, TARGET: gearing up to launch Motorola Droid, BlackBerry Storm 2, BlackBerry Curve 2, more

verizon-sams-1-small

If you’ve been wondering whether the Motorola Droid (or Tao, or Sholes — whatever), BlackBerry Storm 2, BlackBerry Curve 2 or LG Chocolate Touch would be hitting Sam’s Club stores or even TARGET, you’re in luck. We just scored an internal document outlining merchandising, training, locations, and pretty much everything else you’d need to know. While Sam’s Club appears to be set up to carry the Motorola Android handset, TARGET seems to be left out. We won’t bore you with some of the more technical stuff, though. Here’s a shot of the Motorola Droid looking pretty fly in an all black everything outfit. There actually looks to possibly be a front-facing camera on the phone. It seems to corroborate our earlier report of some cool face recognition action, or it could just simply be the European variant. There’s placeholders for the LG Chocolate Touch, BlackBerry Storm 2 and Curve 2 in here, and we might have a little bit of copyright infringement on our hands, folks. That’s our BlackBerry Tour image nestled in between some other Verizon handsets. One more slide after the break.

Thanks, J Bird!

Reconfirming confirmed confirmation: iPhone coming to Walmart

Reconfirming confirmed confirmation: iPhone coming to Walmart

We’re now just over a week away from the culmination of an ongoing saga that has been the iPhone 3G’s dance over to Wal-Mart. Whew! For a bit of background in case you’ve been hiding from the economy in your basement for the past few months, BGR scooped it back in October, served it in November and then stirred it up a little in December. So far it’s looking like everything is falling right into place as a new letter emerges, essentially reaffirming everything we told you. This letter isn’t a mere redundancy however, as it provides the last pieces of the puzzle we hadn’t yet confirmed: size and price. Earlier this month we told you about a possible $99 iPhone that we were plenty skeptical about, and for the time being it’s a no-go. Wal-Mart will be selling the same 8GB and 16GB models everyone else has, for $197 and $297 respectively — a whopping $2 savings over competitors. Smooth move Apple; give Wal-Mart the ability to sell a discounted iPhone but keep other partners happy by making the discount insignificant. As for the possibility of a $99 iPhone, analysts might charge you an arm and a leg to tell you “it’s a distinct possibility” but it doesn’t take weeks of poring over blogs research and calculation to tell you it’ll be here sooner rather than later. But we digress. Hit the jump for a shot of the letter and get ready to get your iPhone 3G on, courtesy of the nation’s largest discount retailer, a week from Sunday.
