We just caught this news but apparently, Sam's Club is joining in on the Pokémon craze and they're offering all Pokémon Go player a free 1-day pass into your local Sam's Club warehouse plus a free sweet treat! According to The Penny Hoarder, to claim your 1-day pass, all you have to do is show up at the nearest Sam's Club location and show them your Pokémon app. That's it. No frills, super easy way to catch em' all at your next grocery shopping haul.
"This pass waives the 10% upcharge and is available at the Member Services desk..." - Sam's Club Corporate Communications Director Tara Raddohl
This Sam's Club x Pokémon Go deal will be available from now through July 31, 2016.
Is Sam's Club your go-to warehouse club for groceries and bulk items? Don't forget to check out Sam's Club coupons and promotions before heading in. Sam's Club often offer a new membership deal of some type in conjunction with Livingsocial or, currently, American Express, so don't miss out on $25 membership offers and bonus food deals from your favorite warehouse retailer.
Additionally, according to Polygon, Pokémon Go developer, Niantic Labs will soon be sponsored by multiple retailers to introduce locations where Pokémon Go players can potentially access Lure Module, rare Pokémon (maybe?) and other potentially awesome things. Which retailers are working with Niantic is still being determined but this could change the retail arena in a whole new way with augmented reality at the forefront of the changes. Guess we finally know (or confirmed) that this is how the trending mobile game plan to monetize it's app.
Current retailers who are lucky enough to have a Poké Stop smack dab in the middle of their stores are already making good use of it and setting out marketing tactics devised to lure Pokémon Go players in store. They're probably in there purchasing and setting off Lure Modules all day so if you're looking for new hot spots around town, try the mall.
So... what level are you now?
