Most gas stations are 24 hours. However, Sam’s Club has a different business model as it’s attached to a store, first and foremost.
So, do Sam’s Club Gas Stations close? This is what we found out…
Do Sam’s Club Gas Stations Close?
Yes, Sam’s Club gas stations do close. Sam’s Club gas stations do not operate on a 24-hour cycle. They all have pretty much the same opening and closing hours, and you cannot purchase fuel once a Sam’s Cub fuel station is closed.
This article takes a look at Sam’s Club gas stations: when they open and close, how to locate one, and why they don’t operate 24/7.
What Time Do Sam’s Club Gas Stations Close?
Sam’s Club standard fuel station hours are set at:
- Monday – Saturday: 6am—9pm
- Sunday: 9am—7pm
However, these times can vary by location and season; therefore, it’s best to check the times each individual centre.
Regular customers also advise that weekends are by far the busiest times to visit Sam’s Club gas stations.
Why Isn’t Sam’s Club Gas Open 24/7?
Sam’s Club have not published an official reason for their gas station hours, and there is no hint that these hours will change anytime soon.
Unfortunately, no Sam’s Club fuel stations remain open past 9pm on weekdays and Saturdays or 7pm on Sundays. They do not leave pumps unattended; you cannot purchase gas and pay using a credit card or tap screen when the centre is closed.
Where Are Sam’s Club Gas Stations?
The Sam’s Club website has a centre locator page, which you can use to find any of the Sam’s Club services. If you look at the listed services, you’ll see Fuel Center in the fourth column. Tick this box to refine your search for fuel locations only.
Alternatively, you can use the Find a Club page, and scroll the alphabetically ordered list to locate the fuel centre nearest you.
Each entry contains information unique to each fuel station, including directions, contact information, and general fuel prices (may differ from actual pump prices).
Do You Have To Be A Member To Get Sam’s Club Gas?
Most Sam’s Club fuel stations are restricted to “Members Only”, and you have to show a valid membership to purchase fuel. However, a small number of the Sam’s Club fuel stations are open to the general public as well as to members.
These locations are either co-located with a Walmart Store or are required by law to be open for public use, and each of these stations offer a .05¢ discount to Sam’s Club members and Walmart+ users (except in New Jersey).
Accepted payments include cash, all major credit cards, Sam’s Club credit card, Sam’s Club Mastercard, Walmart credit card, and Scan & Go.
You can also use Sam’s Club and Walmart gift cards to pay for fuel.
Sam’s Club gas stations open for regular hours: 6am to 9pm weekdays/Saturdays and 9 am to 7pm on Sundays.
These gas stations are mostly members only, but there are a number of locations open to members and the general public (who will not receive the fuel discounts offered to members).
Sam’s Club advise customers to use the store locater for directions, fuel prices and opening hours of all Sam’s Club gas stations.
