Sandwich Bags
Kroger’s Brand 180 counts for $5.59 Kroger’s ZipLoc 280 count for $10.89

Ziplock 580 count for $11.58

Sam’s doesn’t have a brand on the website so
Ziplock 152 count for $14.98

Eye Glass Wipes I was unable to find Eye Glass Wipes on Kroger’s website.
Sam’s 225ct was $8.86. We’ve used this brand before and love it. The wipe stays wet longer we believe.

Bottled Water
Kroger’s Brand 32 pack of 16.9 oz for $3.34
Sam’s Brand 45 pack of 16.9 for $3.44

I haven’t don’t compared prices for Coffee, or the drop-ins, nor the candy, or breakfast bars, etc.

I understand Sam’s has a membership cost of $60 you are able to have two people on the membership but both people must live in the same household. Also at Sam’s they check for ID when coming in and checking out. I also understand Sam’s sells by bulk sizes.

Kroger’s has gas points. 10 cents for every $100 spent. They do exprie. Kroger’s has store coupons and digital coupons. Kroger’s also has weekly sales, and 3 or 4 days sales. I’m not sure if Sam’s offer this kind of sales.
Kroger’s and Sam’s both sell clothing, toys, books, and other items. This is based on my local Kroger’s and Sam’s.

I feel both Kroger’s and Sam’s both have good deals. This just depends on what you are buying and what you think is a good buy. Buying bulk you need to make sure you are able to use all of the item before it expires.
