You likely already know that a warehouse chain like Sam's Club is a great place to buy bulk groceries, home goods, apparel and more for your family at low prices. But there's a hack to save even more when you shop at Sam's Club -- the warehouse retailer's own Member's Mark brand.

Member's Mark offers just about all the essentials your family needs at prices that tend to be lower than the leading national brands. But you don't have to sacrifice quality. Some Member's Mark finds are so good (and delicious!) they have social media talking and Sam's Club members raving.

If you haven't tried Member's Mark yet, you're missing out: The brand offers spring cleaning essentials, easy-cook meals, crave-worthy snacks (have you tried the sea salt caramels?), eco-friendly clothing, furniture and more at eye-popping low prices. Take a look at some of our absolute top Member's Mark finds at Sam's Club that we've shared below.

Member's Mark paper towels

Sam's Club

Here's a Sam's Club no-brainer: The warehouse chain is a great place to stock up on spring cleaning essentials such as paper towels. Member's Mark super premium paper towels are a particularly great value: You get 15 mega rolls online (150 sheets each) for $20. (Price may vary in store.)

The towels are thick, quilted and absorbent. They're a Sam's Club member favorite, too -- they're rated 4.9 stars. "Just as good or better as [the] name brand," says one Sam's Club reviewer.

One thing we really like about Member's Mark paper towels? Unlike the paper towels offered by its largest competitor's in-house brand, Member's Mark paper towels are individually wrapped so they won't get dirty before it's time to use them.

Member's Mark milk chocolate soft sea salt caramels

Sam's Club

Sam's Club sells many delicious snacks under its Member's Mark brand. We recommend trying the milk chocolate sea salt caramels. The kettle-cooked soft caramels are just the right balance between salty and sweet to hit those cravings.

One Sam's Club reviewer calls these 4.8-star-rated caramels heaven in a jar. "OMG! I took these to the office and was all but attacked for a second," they said. "These caramels are heaven! So worth the price. I have to go back and get more now because everyone ate all mine."

Get a 36-ounce jar of Member's Mark milk chocolate soft sea salt caramels for $10.

Spring is a time for celebrating. Mother's Day is coming up soon, and so is graduation. And what better way to celebrate than with a fresh-baked cake?

Sam's Club offers so many different options when it comes to cakes. You can get a basic sheet cake in your choice of icing colors, or level up to a two- or three-tier Member's Mark cake that'll truly impress. Cakes are available in a wide range of themes for events and holidays, including weddings, with the option to fully customize your cake down to the sprinkles on top. Cookie cakes are available too, as are cupcakes.

Prices of Member's Mark custom cakes vary based on design and size.

Member's Mark cotton stretch boxer briefs

Sam's Club

Sam's Club is a great place to stock up on wardrobe basics and essentials. We especially like Member's Mark cotton stretch boxer briefs. They're comfortable, supportive and moisture-wicking. We also like that they're eco-friendly and sustainably sourced, made with 58% BCI cotton, 37% recycled poly and 5% spandex.

These boxer briefs are rated 4.6 stars at Sam's Club. "I bought these for my boyfriend years ago," says one reviewer. "They have withstood the test of time like nothing else I've seen. He's had all the big-name brand briefs ... they all fall apart and rip, stretch out and become brittle almost. But the Member's Mark briefs look nearly brand new."

You can get a five-pack of Member's Mark cotton stretch boxer briefs for $15 -- that's just $3 per piece. Sizes range from S to XXL.

Whether you're hosting a party for the NBA Playoffs this weekend and need a tasty snack, or are just looking for something to feed the family tonight, you can't go wrong with Member's Mark oven-roasted chicken wings. They're a limited-time offering at Sam's Club. The wings are pre-cooked, so all you need to do is reheat them in your oven or air fryer. They're great as-is, or you can shred the meat to use in your favorite recipes.

"I tried one bag and went back for more," says one Sam's Club reviewer. "Perfectly seasoned and convenient. Pop them in the oven, toss together a salad, [add] garlic bread and a meal is complete."

"Says limited-time offer," adds another reviewer, "but hopefully they will become available every day."

You can get a 3-pound bag of Member's Mark frozen oven-roasted chicken wings for $18.

Shopping at Sam's Club is an experience. The warehouse store stocks plenty of your favorite brands and it's own Member's Mark brand, so it's a great place to discover new foods and drinks for your family.

But what you'll really love about Sam's Club are the savings. Beyond just groceries, the warehouse chain offers travel deals, a 10% discount on home improvement services, discounts on eyeglasses and prescription drugs (certain prescriptions are free from Sam's Club Plus members), discounts on new tires and low-priced gasoline at the chain's gas stations.
