Since Sam’s first introduced the Scan & Go app, I have loved it UNTIL TODAY. This latest update disrupted my experience. Mid-shopping in-store, it kicked me out. I rescanned my 11 items, then it froze on the pay screen after I “slid” to pay; wouldn’t progress to barcode screen. The manager checked my account and promised the charge hadn’t gone through. (I should not have believed her.) She checked me out and gave me a printed receipt. She said I have to call the number in the app to check on the problem with the app. (That help number in the Scan&Go portion of the app at the bottom of the screen with your list of items is only available while physically in-club (I didn’t realize). I got home and checked my credit card charges—2 back to back—1 for Sam’s Club (matches printed receipt) and 1 for Sam’s Online (the Scan&Go app) for 0.15 cents more than the printed receipt. My credit card company said get back to us if Sam’s doesn’t fix it. Called the 888 number on the back of my Sam’s card. Nice lady, but she said I had to print out proof of the double charge and go back to the store to get the store to refund one of the charges. I’m glad it’s fixable, but I’ve never previously had this kind of problem before. PLEASE fix the app. I’m not using it again until there’s another update.
I’ve used the scan and go feature EVERY week. Sometimes TWICE each week. Yesterday i allowed the app to update. Today the app doesn’t work on either of my phones OR my iPad. Oh I can scan. But I don’t see a list of what I’ve scanned. And that little thing called “check out”. Where the hell is it? Sams need to fix this app. They’ve reduced the number of associates in the store to check your order out. The self service lines reach to the center of the store. The Scan and Go app is the ONLY reason i shop at Sams. I need convenience. Not frustration. And don’t tell me to call their help line. Two updates ago the app stopped working. I called and got nothing. No answers. Just handed off to someone who was going to research the problem. 4 weeks later i received an email saying they had looked into my problem and i should go to the store for assistance. 3 months later an update fixed my problem. When the scan and go app works it’s great. But it isn’t working now.
It was suggested to me that I download the Scan n Go app and bypass the long lines at “the” register or the slow moving, when working, self check lines. So I did. I couldn’t wait to try it! It was heavenly, the first time. The second time was a waste of time. Every time I’d scan an item the app would blink and end up back at home screen. It soon became too much like work so I got in one of the few working self check lanes and back to the way we were. Now I would expect this from a little fledgling operation just trying out some new technology, but this is a multi billion dollar company. All I can conclude is that Sams Club at the highest level just doesn’t give a d*#m. You can’t tell me they do. Spend a few dollars and pay somebody to make sure that the world’s largest retailer has working self check systems. Pay them to tighten up the screw that holds the credit card scanner so I don’t have to hold it in place while inserting my card. I thought self check was going to replace employees. I now see that they too are at work and not working. I believe if Sam Walton we’re alive and he walked into Sams Club on Covington Pike in Memphis and saw 9 self check systems and 3 with “Out of Order” signs on them... I believe he’d raise hell and put a prop under it! Sams, Operating like an under capitalized mom and pop. Sad.... Gonna uninstall app....
Updating previous review to include problems with seeing order in app. Twice now I’ve went to pickup my order curb side and opened the app to notify store that I had arrived to pickup my order and the app showed no order - very frustrating since it had shown the order ready for picky a few hours earlier. Makes the app rather useless to me and I have to use phone to call customer service to relay that I am there to pickup my order. I had previously used the app and was able to only make my location known when using the app and was also able to decline notifications, but now when I try to use the app to notify the store I am there for my curbside pickup, I am forced to have location on always and also forced to receive notifications through the app. Otherwise, the app won’t let me proceed in alerting the store I am there for my pickup. Obviously, I will either have to reset these settings each time, since I refuse to have app developers force me into setting settings I don’t want or I will just call the store customer service each time. This also frustrates me to the point of being less likely to ever use the app at all. Who designs these functional flaws and then gets it approved? If it’s unintentional, it’s disappointingly terrible quality control.
I have recently started using click n pull and noticed couple of issues. 1. Whenever I reach club and open app, it shows my order and ask me to enter my parking spot. Once I enter my slot, it gives me error saying “Something went wrong, please try again”, but in reality it worked internally and notified the associate. This is very confusing and it’s happening repeatedly for me. 2. We have family membership and it would be great to be able to see other person in click n pull and add rather than typing names etc. 3. In family membership, there should be option to share “click n pull” orders with other members of family (at least who are registered and have sams card) so that either person can use the pickup. Currently my husband is not able to view any order that I make for click n pull. 4. This app has some serious issue with internal memory or CPU utilization. Once I was using scan n go feature when it suddenly cause my phone to turn off and my phone stopped working. It wasn’t charging or turning on. Apple support told me that your last app caused gpu to crash and impacted working image and it had to be hard reset.
