IN-STORE PURCHASES (Preferred for Columbia)
If you have a need to make an in-store purchase at Sam’s Club, they will NO LONGER provide a temporary card at the Service Desk. You MUST check out a Sam’s Club Membership Card from the UM Procurement Office located at 2910 Lemone Industrial Boulevard. The Procurement Office hours are 7:30 to 5:00 each day.
When you check out the card, you MUST provide your contact information including mobile number and supervisor name, and the card MUST be returned AS SOON AS POSSIBLE after the purchase is complete.
You MAY ONLY use your university issued OneCard for the purchase. PERSONAL PURCHASES ARE NOT ALLOWED using the University’s Sam’s Club Membership Card!
You may still make an online purchase and either pick up in store or have delivered to your office location. When submitting an online order include your name (or the name of the person picking up the order) in the Additional Pickup Person field. This will let Sam’s Club know who is picking up the order. Contact Procurement for the online account name and password.
Be sure and select the Mark all eligible tax-exempt items to avoid being charged sales tax.
Multiple people have access to creating an online order. Make sure only your items are in the cart before checking out, otherwise multiple orders may be combined.
Note: If you choose to have your order delivered to your office location. the University’s Plus Membership allows for Free Shipping up to a total of 10 addresses. Once that is exceeded, you may be charged shipping fees.
If you encounter problems during or after the online ordering process, Procurement is not able to assist. You will be responsible for working with Sam's Club to resolve.
