Comments for Is Good Sam giving away free memberships? Appears so. . .

  • As a Lifetime member this is somewhat irritating. (Happy for those getting the free deal, though).Only thing that makes it somewhat less aggravating is the Pilot/Flying J discount level in truck lanes is higher than regular membership. Would be nice if occassionally companies did something nice for loyal customers, not just new or lapsed. GS offered a deal for new members on the Lifetime membership a number of years ago. I called to ask what about existing customers. Said only for new. Emailed Marcus Lemonis. Got my reduced price Lifetime membership!

  • Curious whether any of the Canadian members got the same freebe memberships? We’ve received a barrage of renewal notices with a $10.00 merchandise certificate as the best incentive offer. So far I have resisted renewing both my membership and Roadside Assistance as: a) seldom stayed at a park where a GS discount was offered, b) no convenient Camping World store and the few times we stop by one their prices tend to be over the top.
    As for the Roadside Assistance the one time we called for assistance while travelling thorough Southern Alberta they couldn’t find our location! Suggested I call back the next morning by which time they hoped to find it in their system! We instead cautiously limped to a truck service centre for assistance. Not easy during harvest season!

  • I can’t help but express some disappointment with some of the comments. Chuck, and many of us participate, asks for volunteer contributions to keep this newsletter going; I buy through the newsletter from Amazon as often as I remember. Camping World is a business that many of us use when it is either profitable or convenient for us. The owner, whom ever they are, has a right to a profit that will allow them to continue to provide us with the choice to use their services or not. Frankly, I wouldn’t think of using a method to provide me with a “free service.” I vote with my dollars and support the RV companies that allow us to enjoy this lifestyle. Really disappointed in those who think that something of value should be provided free because they disagree with a pricing or policy. I use CW when it benefits me and in a few cases they were there when I needed them for a specific reason; I want companies like this to stay in business. Chuck, I think you are wrong on this one and should review your position.

    • Joseph, I have not been following every comment in this thread (there are so many comments coming in on various posts). Please feel free to contact me at chuck (at) RVtravel.com as I would enjoy talking with you more about this. — Chuck
