While summer means a variety of things to different people, to approximately 88% of American families (according to research by CNN Money) it means it is time to travel by car for a much-needed vacation. The idea of packing up and driving off to the beach or to visit Grandma for a few days does sound awfully nice, doesn't it?
But as much as traveling by car saves money on not having to buy airplane tickets, what about the cost of filling up your tank over and over? Or needing to replace your tires after using them for miles and miles?
Fortunately, cashing in on gas and tire savings is possible thanks to the one-stop location dedicated to simplifying your life by offering unmatched savings on everything from food to electronics to furniture. After all, it's easy to make the most of your budget when you know to go to Sam's Club.
Offering quality, name-brand merchandise at exceptional prices, the approximately 600 Sam's Club locations are not only terrific places to save money, but also destinations for solutions that can help ease a busy schedule. A Sam's Club membership can offer value all year long but especially during summer travel and entertaining season when it comes to gas and tire savings to gear up for that road trip!
Sam's Club members can save as much as 5¢ per gallon of gas at club fuel stations and, from now until July 7th, Sam's Club members can save $70 on a set of four new Michelin tires (offer available while supplies last on any set of four new Michelin brand passenger or light truck tires. See an associate or SamsClub.com on qualifying tires and more details)!
As well as keeping your car fueled up and in road trip-ready shape, Sam's Club also has a wide variety of must-have and unique items that can really come in handy for your summer vacations both big and small.
Looking for technology that can help keep your favorite gadgets protected, charged and ready for use? Then check out the Griffin Survivor Case for iPad with Stand to protect your iPad wherever life takes you, the Power Tube Portable Charger that is small enough to slip into a pocket or purse, or the Chill Pill Red Portable Speakers that allow you to rock out to your tunes out loud and on the go.
Going camping with your family this summer? Sam's Club can help you prepare with the Mini First Aid Kit - 33 pc., which gives you everything you need and nothing you don't, the Cesar Millan Folding Pet Travel Bed so that your 4-legged family members can be comfortable wherever you go, or the Float-A-Bout Drink Cooler that will provide enough room to float the entire party's favorite drinks as you relax in your inner tube.
Or maybe your vacation plans do involve hopping an airplane to reach your destination? In that case, head over to SamsClub.com and browse the Honey-Can-Do Vacuum Packs to provide the extra room you need in your suitcase, the Samsonite Electronic Luggage Scale to remove any worries about baggage fees before you get to the airport, and the CROC Baby Travel Flat-Iron Bundle that provides double opportunity for these compact, handy, bad hair day-busting tools to come along in your purse, the car and more.
Around here, I'm beyond excited to be prepared for summer travel (as well as trips to the park, picnics and more) thanks to the innovative Teak Roll-Up Table from Sam's Club.
Retailing for $69.98, this table truly is an ultimate and instant beach accessory that can come in handy for any number of occasions. The 100% teak wood pieces conveniently store in their own fabric sling bag, so you simply pull it on over your shoulder (it weighs around 11 pounds), bring it to your location and set it up in a matter of seconds.
No more brushing ants off of your picnic foods, getting sand in your drink at the beach or trying to play a game of cards while they slide around on a blanket — the Teak Roll-Up Table is there instead!
It really is just that easy to turn a bag of pieces into a 30" x 30" x 15" table anywhere, anytime. First, arrive at your destination and remove the pieces from the bag.
Second, unroll the table top and lay the two slats into place so that the holes match up with the table.
Third, screw the four table legs into the slats and table top.
Finally, turn the table over and you are set to enjoy your portable Teak Roll-Up Table!
This really is a fantastic little table and I have no doubt that we will be using it throughout the summer and beyond! It provides plenty of space for eating or playing and, when it is time to leave, it only takes seconds to flip the table back over, remove the legs and roll all of the pieces up to replace them into the bag.

Other than the Teak Roll-Up Table that I was provided by Sam's Club in order to facilitate my review, I was not compensated or enticed to do this post in any way. This review is solely my honest opinion about this product.
