Want to keep your fridge filled ahead of the summer? Save on all the essentials with the help of some sweet first-time membership offers from wholesale clubs, including Costco, Sam's Club, and Kroger to get what you want at prices you need. Warehouse club memberships can let you access cheaper gas, groceries, and pantry staples; plus they offer plenty of other exclusive shopping perks. To get the most bang for your buck this year and beyond, you should join these wholesale clubs pronto.

A Sam's Club membership can help you save on bulk purchases, gas, and everyday essentials.

For discounts on tall grocery purchases, Sam's Club is the place to be. Best of all, the standard warehouse club membership is a whopping 72% off right now. The club's annual fee typically comes in at $50, but when you join Sam's Club today you'll get a standard membership for just $14 a year! Just make sure you take advantage of this membership deal sooner rather than later, as it expires Tuesday, April 30.

Sam's Club offers incredibly low prices across all categories along with a discounted membership fee. Additionally, if you have to travel far and wide, Sam's Club has fuel stations across the country with discounted rates on regular, premium, and diesel gas.

As a Sam's Club member, you can save $0.05 per gallon at the pump (the actual discount will depend on your location and the specific station). Better still, with a membership, you also get access to exclusive deals on pantry staples, toiletries, prescriptions, and other household essentials. Other benefits include free shipping on select items, free curbside pick-up, 100% merchandise satisfaction guarantee with free replacements and returns, and free tire repairs for any tire that meets USTMA (U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association) guidelines, regardless of where they were purchased.

Costco has incredible deals on groceries, gas, travel, and more.

Need to stock up on pantry staples? Consider signing up for a Costco membership. Not only does the wholesale club offer rock-bottom prices on customer-favorite brands, it's also one of the cheapest places for gas if you plan on traveling this summer and beyond. Memberships start at $60 a year for two cards per household with access to all Costco locations around the world. (Taking a trip to Canada? You can refuel there as well!) The self-serve stations offer both regular and diesel Kirkland Signature gas, and are located next to the warehouses. As a Costco member, you'll get access to exclusive savings on groceries, clothing, toys, tools, and, of course, those beloved samples.

Upgrade to the Executive membership, which is $120 a year, to get 2% back on all qualifying purchases up to a maximum of $1,000 a year. Depending on how much you spend annually on groceries and other items, this can easily cover the extra $60 for the premium membership. Keep in mind that gas does not count towards the 2% but there's more than enough to purchase at Costco to add up to significant cash back savings. Plus, the Executive membership includes savings on vacations booked through Costco Travel.

Save on groceries and more with a Walmart+ membership.

Did you know that Walmart has a membership program called Walmart+? For $12.95 a month or $98 annually (less than Amazon Prime!), you get, among the many other perks, exclusive savings on your weekly grocery haul.

Right now, you can enjoy a 30-day free trial to check it out and enjoy all the benefits Walmart+ has to offer, including discounts at the pump. Walmart+ members get a discount of $0.05 per gallon at Walmart gas stations, Murphy Express, and Sam's Club fuel stations. That might not sound like a lot, but it adds up. If your car fills up at 15 gallons, for example, you'll save $0.75 each time you fill up. If you get gas weekly, that's about $40 in savings a year.

Other benefits of a Walmart+ membership include free unlimited delivery (including same-day on some items) and mobile scan-and-go shopping in stores. Walmart offers great prices on groceries, toiletries, fresh meats and produce, pantry staples, electronics, clothing, and so much more.

Cut down on weekly expenses with a Kroger membership today.

Kroger routinely offers deals on everyday essentials, plus they have a Fuel Points program when you use your Kroger Shoppers Card that allows you to earn 100 Fuel Points for every dollar spent on most groceries. Fuel Points can be redeemed for $0.10 off per gallon at Kroger’s fuel centers and participating Shell gas stations in your area, adding up to serious savings at the pump if you want to travel. The best part? Signing up for a Shoppers Card is free. Simply create an account by entering your name, email address, and desired password or sign in using your existing Google credentials. You can then register an existing card using the Plus Card number on the back or get a digital one to use on a mobile device.

In addition to the point-per-dollar deal, there are always special bonus Fuel Point promotions to help you save even more. The program excludes purchases like alcohol, tobacco, money orders, postage stamps, and promotional tickets, but most items you can buy at Kroger—from pantry staples to fresh fruits and veggies—will earn you fuel points that quickly add up to money in your pocket. You can even earn points on select prescriptions and gift card purchases.

Consider that a $200 Kroger grocery bill full of qualifying items will earn you 200 Fuel Points that can be redeemed for $0.10 per gallon off your next two tanks (you can only redeem 100 points at a time for up to 35 gallons of unleaded, mid-grade, premium, diesel, or E85 gas). To redeem, scan your Shoppers card and follow the instructions at the pump. Keep in mind, however, that the Fuel Points expire one month after they are earned, so you must redeem on a month-to-month basis to scoop the savings.
