Sam's Club is a membership-only retail warehouse chain. The company was founded in 1983 and has been in business for over 35 years. Sam's Club offers a wide range of retail products, including groceries, electronics, appliances, furniture, clothing, and seasonal items.
  • SAMS: This is likely an abbreviation or code for the name of the merchant or business where the transaction took place.
  • SCAN-N-GO: This is likely a description or code for the type of transaction. It suggests that the transaction may have been made through a scanning system in which the customer scans the items they want to purchase and pays electronically at a self-checkout counter or kiosk.
