Sam’s Club has introduced new A.I. exit technology (pictured above) that will speed up the checkout process for its members.

Now, after paying at a register or via the Scan & Go feature, computer vision, and digital technology automatically confirm payment for all items in a member’s cart as they leave.

Sam’s Club has implemented the technology in 120 stores and will have it installed in all stores by the end of the year.

Todd Garner, chief product officer at Sam’s Club, said:  "Both exit technology and Scan & Go are driving new levels of convenience and raising member satisfaction among members."

These are the Items You Should Be Buying At Sam's Club

There are items that you can buy at a grocery store or items you can buy at a big-box store, however, if you are looking to save money, Sam's Club is the place to shop. Sam's Club allows you to buy the items you use the most in bulk, and that means you are going to be saving money.
