    Thumbs up FREE tire repair...

    a couple days ago the WU (wife) car had a flat tire...

    well I figured the best (lazy) way would be to air it up,
    then limp it to a repair shop -The closest would be SAM's Club.

    so off we went, the guy sez sure, jumps in the car and gets bizzy with it...

    when done he comes back, flips a "Service Sheet" (receipt) in the window
    of the car we were waiting in and sez: "Thanks a lot, SEE YOU LATER, turns and walks away."

    puzzled, wife and I look at each other and see the RECEIPT TOTAL is $0.00
    well we kinda sit there a few then finaly drive off.

    I get home and GOOGLED it and sure enuff, as a member of SAMs, one of your
    benefits is free tire repair reguardless of who/what/where the tire came from...

    and it was not just a 'plug' (broke tire down/glued patch inside/rebalaced-remount)

    (I also mostly buy my gas at Sams, usually the cheapest in town)



    we were surpirised and just thought I would pass it along... :)

    I'm a member of Sam's club through work, do i have to bring anything in? Or just show them my Sam's club card when I bring the car in? Cause both my car, and my girlfriends car are having leaks.. 4 tires total between the two cars.

    yeah buddy, it was a real surprise

    if you google about it you can read that with membership
    you can get Free flat repair AND tire rotation

    just asked at garage doors, then went to front desk (show card)

    met service dude back at garage, did repair while we sat in A/C car and watched
    pulled car out, handed us Service Sheet, smiled and walked away - amazing -

    ---------------------------------------
    some www quotes :

    Tire Rotation and Flat-Tire repair are complimentary with your Samís Card Membership. How incredible is this? Iím going to go get my tires rotated for FREE

    Getting Free Flat-Tire Repair and Rotation will more than pay for the cost of my membership
