BENTONVILLE, AR -- Sam's Club has launched a smartphone application that the wholesaler says will enhance and simplify the shopping experiences of its members.

The app can be downloaded for free from the iPhone App Store, Android Market and BlackBerry App World. A video detailing the application, and links to the smartphone sites, are available at

A "club locator" feature provides both directions and details, such as hours of operation and services offered. The "my club" feature is a quick tap to information about the member's preferred club and includes club-specific product assortments and available services. Also included is a "club map" feature to help members easily navigate the interior of each store, including the layouts of individual department locations.

By tapping the "products" icon, members can scroll through the product catalog by category, search a product by name, or use a smart phone camera to scan the barcode and check the product's online information page. The application also provides shoppers instant access to thousands of product reviews and product availability status. Members can also share their favorite products with friends on Facebook and followers on Twitter by using the social networking functions.

Sam's Club Plus members can view their eValues -- exclusive, customized discounts automatically loaded on their membership cards -- directly from the app. Members who use the Sam's Club app are alerted instantly when new offers are added to their eValues and when they about to expire.
