How to Purchase from Gainesville’s Sam’s Club
The Gainesville Sam’s Club is located at 4001 SW 30th Terrace, Gainesville, FL 32608
Sam’s Club requires a store membership card for the employee who will be doing the purchasing. Sam’s Club now does accept the Visa P-Card.
To Get a Departmental Sam’s Club Membership:
Request a list of UF’s credit references from Disbursements. Take the credit references and UF’s tax exempt certificate to Sam’s Club Membership Service Desk and ask to open a regular account in the name of your UF Department. Business Accounts are no longer available at Sams Club. If your department has a Business Account with Sams Club, changes can be made by bringing a letter from your chair or Director on UF Department stationery.
Only the primary member on a Sam’s Club membership may use their own PCard to pay for purchases. Note that a PCard must be used to receive UF’s tax exempt status. Purchases using departmental Sam’s Club membership must be for University business only. Purchases must be made in accordance with PCard policy.
Sam’s Club will bill an annual Administrative Fee of $50 and $50 Membership fee for the first employee with an additional $45.00 for each additional employee needing a card. The Administrative Fee and Memberships are due each year. Up to 4 additional primary memberships can be added to the initial primary membership of $50, although each primary membership can have an additional complimentary membership. Complimentary memberships cannot use a PCard; only the primary memberships can.
UF departments are responsible for notifying Sam’s Club if a card-holding employee leaves their position. Membership is transferable.
