Bad Sam

I have had Good Sam for 2 years. They always try to trick us into renewing when I still have months left on my membership. Seems like i come home and my wife's handing me that dang renewal notice. I have to log in to see i still have six months left. i get a letter every couple of weeks now. not do friendly of a business practice

Yeah, I just got my new card. And had I pulled my old one out BEFORE I sent my renewal in....I would have seen the date I was good to. Its right there on the card. Duh.
This will be my second and very likely last year as a member.

Well I'm a life member but as the years have gone by GS has become like most other business. It's called money money and more money. I did not become a member to be bombarded by all the advertizement to buy this buy that. It's a joke any more. What happened to the good old GS. As far as I'm concerned the new folks that took over have ruined it. Later RJD

Good Sam got purchased by Camping World. That explaines it all.

Both are owned together with magazines included by a business magnate with his own Tv show. No longer a camping club, more of a business center with crazy profit requirements.

I hold out until the month it expires -- They'll start offering deals. Last year I got a free night of camping (you mail them receipt (has to be GS Park) and they send you a check for (up to) $25.) This year I got a $20 CW Certificate. Reduces net membership cost to $5 - $10 range.

Is the Good Sam renewal not the same as a Costco renewal? By that I mean that regardless of when you renew, the annual date for use of the card remains constant. At least here in Canada that's how our Costco works.
