Does Sam's Club Accept Apple Pay (2023 Facts)

Sam's Club, at most locations, does accept Apple Pay. Much like other grocery retailers, you can use Apple Pay to purchase grocery items at the "people" checkout lines (the ones that are powered by people).

Do all stores accept Apple Pay?

Most stores do! It's always good to check with your local Sam's Club by calling. It might be easier to visit the location and check with the customer service center (rather than calling).

Older locations typically accept Apple Pay, which is why if you have a newer location, you'll most likely be okay!
