Sam’s Club Lowers Price of Hot Dog and Soda Combo to $1.38

by Patrick Herron

In a direct shot at rival Costco, Sam’s Club has lowered the price of its hot dog & drink combo to $1.38. Walmart/Sam’s CEO Doug McMillon made the announcement earlier this week during a third-quarter earnings call with investors. Previously, the combo was priced at $1.50, to match Costco’s famous pricing. According to the Wall Street Journal, “the move was part of the company’s strategy to cut prices on some products even as many everyday items remained higher than usual.” Sam’s Club has one Montgomery County location at 610 N. Frederick Ave. in Gaithersburg.

Costco has been selling its combo for $1.50 since 1985. When asked in September if the price of the hot dog and drink would ever be raised, Costco CFO Richard Galanti said the deal would be $1.50 “forever.” Costco has Montgomery County locations at 880 Russell Ave in Gaithersburg and 11160 Veirs Mill Rd in Wheaton.
