Good Sam Club Membership

Thinking about joining the Good Sam Club. Do you belong to it and is it worth it? What are the pros/cons of the Good Sam Club? Thanks....

No is my frist reaction but it realy personal prefernce. We are members but it was not what i thought it was. Frist and formost all those road side assistance,extened warranty's. All cost extra,weare supposed to get products to test and keep after huh, never happen. You do get a whopping 10% disscount at Good sams camp grounds,and go to thier rallies.

WE WILL NOT BE RENEWING

I buy the roadside and like it. Rarely get the campground discount. Rarely shop in their store as mst items can be sourced elsewhere for alot less.

We bought the Platinum Road Side Assistance and had to use it this summer while we were out west. We were 1 1/2 weeks into a 6 week vacation with our toy hauler and were riding our motorcycles. A lady cut us off, wrecked both of our bikes and my wife was in the hospital for a week (ruined our vacation). Because we were more than 100 miles away from our house, they reimbursed almost $600 in expenses. Well worth the price for us.

I am a life member of good sam first off so guess I may be a little one sided. Its like anything else, there are pros and cons. Yes you receive some discounts at campgrounds, cw, and many more. If you go the the web site and go throught the different places you save it may be worth it. I know when I renew my Sams club member ship its nice to get a 10 or 20 dollar gift card back for being a Good Sam member.

Yes you will get junk mail how ever its not as bad as it used to be.

To me the other good thing is joining a Good Sam chapter in your area. This is almost more about what this club is. If you get involved with the local chapter or the state Samborees, this is to me the real meaning of the Good Sam club.

Bottom Line join for a year look into a local chapter if you do not like what you see back out.

we are members and enjoy the benefits. I like the free shipping they offer at Camping World, we belong to our local chapter and have a great time camping with them and also meet once a month or more in the "off" season, have taken advantage of the 10% off at several campgrounds. the magazine has some good articles but is mostly an advertisement for CW, so far it's work well for us, I will continue with the club

We are members and love the discounts and free shipping. But most important is the great discount on their auto insurance that comes with membership and roadside assistance.
