Gift cards
You can buy gift cards at samsclub.com to get the Amex credit. Samsclub.com sells many physical and egift cards at a discount. You can also buy Sam's Club gift cards at face value with free shipping. Sam's Club gift cards can be used either at Sam's Club in club, samsclub.com, at Walmart stores and walmart.com.
Gift of membership cards can be used as regular $45 gift cards. If you ship these to most states, sales tax is added to your order but your card will still only be worth $45. You will get your full value only if you can ship them to one of the few states where sales tax is not added.
For a completely free purchase, use the Sam's Club Android app to buy two $10 Sam's Club gift cards, or four of them if you are splitting the payment between two enrolled Amex cards. (There is a minimum quantity of 10 cards if you order these on the web site; the Android app does not have this minimum.)

Offer Valid Until 9/30/15.

1)Note that the charge has to post by that date. Be sure to order at least a few days before then to give time for the order to process.

2)Note that purchasing an item with an Amex and returning it in store, will result in a refund on your Amex card, not store credit or cash.

I just hope they loosen up on the shipping stupidity over the coming weeks. As I still have dozens of registered AMEX cards.
BH got a nice number of SC GC before they added shipping to them.
Please explain the stupidity, inconvenience yes.

If an underlying reason for creating this AMEX/SC promotion was to bring in more new members,
I think adding shipping charges onto hundreds of items that previously had Free Shipping is more than an "inconvenience".....
Cutting off 20 & 40 GCs from website more than inconvenient as well.

Bottom line: You want new customers? Make it easy to spend money with you. Don't keep throwing up road blocks to make it more difficult. THAT is stupid.

I had no problem spending $10 to get a $50 GC. But as I mentioned in an earlier post, where's the logic in having the exact item with free shipping on Walmart but add $32 for shipping on SC? With that kind of game plan, why would I think twice to even look at SC website AFTER 9/30 when this is all over? If pricing were similar or lower, at least I would look.

I think the idea that they had in mind was for people to patronize sam's club not just place orders for the $20 or $40 for free on multiple orders and then head for the hills and not stick with them. Someone there is not stupid and sees what is being done and is trying to stop the bleeding.

They should have send you an email to activate it.
I thought you only need to activate it to use online but it is already active for store use

I wonder if they didn't realize how many people have many multiples of cards to take advantage of the deal.  Maybe they thought it would be one per person?

I get that.  I have much less issue with them yanking the 20s & 40s than I do with the added shipping fees.

When you ordered them, and they shipped, you should have gotten two emails. one with tracking info. and one with a confirmation link

Thanks, went to spam...

It would be nice if they would be efficient about it and sell egift cards of any specified amount like Walmart.com sells. Instead they are wasting resources to print and ship physical cards that many of their customers do not want or need.
