Membership has its privileges -- in this case free cupcakes.

Sam's Club

To paraphrase Woody Allen, I'd never join a club that would charge me $45 to become a member. But $23, and throw in dinner and dessert? I'm listening.

For a limited time, Cheapskate readers can get a one-year Sam's Club membership with a free rotisserie chicken and eight cupcakes for $23.11. That's after applying promo code CHEAP20 at checkout. With those extras in there, this is a $57 value.

Just be sure to read through all the details -- including who's eligible -- on the promo page. As you might expect, this is for new members only, though if you had a membership and it lapsed more than seven months ago, you should be able to hop on this.  

Note, too, that after one year you'll automatically get billed for another year at the regular price ($45) unless you cancel your membership.

To take advantage of the free food, you'll need to visit an actual Sam's Club warehouse. After you've set up your Sam's Club membership (using the instructions and links provided by ZDNet Academy), head to the store and put those two items in your shopping cart. When you get to checkout, they should be automatically deducted, having been preloaded to your account.  

Needless to say, if you shop there even just occasionally, the savings should more than cover the pretty minimal cost of membership.
