Sam’s Club is sharing its holiday playbook.

The 655-store, Walmart-division warehouse club has announced some half-dozen sales events beginning Nov. 12 and running through Dec. 17, and revealed a new pay-and-go app for in-store mobile checkouts.

The promotional calendar includes:

Sat., Nov. 12: A “One Day Only” sale on CE and home items, beginning at 12:01 a.m. EST online and at 7 a.m. in stores

Sat., Nov. 19: A “Pre-Black Friday” tech sale, including 4K TVs and smartphones and tablets, with an emphasis on Samsung products. One-day only in stores, and through Wed., Nov. 23, online

Thurs., Nov. 24 (Thanksgiving): Black Friday sales will begin at 12:01 a.m. EST online. Stores will be closed until 7 a.m. on Fri., Nov. 25

Sun., Nov. 27-Fri., Dec. 2: Online-only Cyber Week sales, beginning at 12:01 a.m. EST

Mon., Dec. 5-Fri., Dec. 9: An online-only “Shocking Values Frenzy” sale

Sat., Dec. 17: A “Last Minute Gifts” online and in-store sales event, including CE, stocking stuffers and other popular items

In addition, Sam’s Club is offering a new Scan & Go mobile app for Android and Apple devices that will allow customers to avoid check-out lines by price-scanning items as they shop, paying for their purchases through their phones, and displaying the digital receipt as they leave.

“We understand the holidays can create a major time crunch for our members, so we’re using technology to ease the stress of holiday shopping,” Sam’s Club president/CEO Rosalind Brewer said.

App users can also view One Day Only and Black Friday sale items in advance, the company said.
