We we asked for our discount, they replied... OH WE DONT GIVE any discount!!!! We just contacted Good Sam and are getting our membership cancelled and $$ refunded... It costs us MORE to be members than it's worth.... SCAM.... I guarantee Sam's gets a kick back from The Gas Stations!!!... Good Sam...GOOD RIDDANCE!!!
I don't use the gas discount as I get a better discount and rebates at other places. But I have never been to a campground that said they were Good Sam and not gotten a discount. Having just renewed for 3 years at $75, and getting 2 $25 coupons to use at Camping world, my net was $25 for three years.. Doesn't take many nights of camping to be ahead of the game. I don't purchase much at Camping world, at least not at regular price, but, sometimes you have no choice and you also get a 10% discount and many times a better price on many items. If you have a different discount at a campground they won't give you two discounts, perhaps that is why they said we don't give that discount, in conjunction with AARP or AAA or whatever..
Sorry you found it not worth while, but, we all have different usage and what Is good for one is not necessarily good for the next guy. I really don't care if they get a fee from a gas station or not, doesn't affect me at all. I actually use my Costco card and get 4% rebate on all gas purchases, anywhere.
