Good Sam club

Can anyone tell me if its worth Signing up for the Good Sam club for discounts. I mean is it worth the $29.00 per year. Were new to Rving and looking for information to save money. Are there other organizations like Good Sam that provide help and discounts?

If you buy one big ticket item or get the campground discount for a few nights over the course of a year it will pay for itself. Otherwise I would pass.

Good Sam and active military were the only 10% discount we offered. The only other discount we offered was 5% for Seniors. I know many parks offer 10% for just about anything, but we held to our discount policy completely. We required presentation of a Good Sam card at check in, and if someone claimed to be a member and didn't have a card, we had the ability to look it up online, and did. Doesn't take too long for the card to cover that $29.00 cost when rates are over $70 a night. (and you save the lodging tax on top of the discount, so a 10% discount on a $70.00 a night rate actually saves $7.70, making it a net 11% discount). As for any other benefits, if you use them, it's an added bonus, but unless you shop Camping World a lot, they really isn't much value added.

I purchased the 3 year membership deal
Although I do not purchase much at Camping World, you get fuel discounts and instant discounts on gas, diesel, propane, dump station fees and more at select Pilot or Flying J locations with your Good Sam Club card.

So that's probably worth it for me

Might look into Coach Net for camping discounts and trip planning. Research GS and find all the bad on roadside service, that's defiantly a no. Just the card might work setting up a new RV with items from Camping World & the camp ground discounts. Personally you will get better prices off Amazon if you can wait a few day. I avoid Camping World like Covid 19 ............................
