From coffee cups to chicken breast, real-time cost-comparisons help small business realize savings potential when purchasing from Sam's Club.

Sam's Club Associate Candy Halko reviews a cost comparison with Robin Darby of the R.F. Knox Co. Inc. in Smyrna GA. Sam's Club has committed to help 100,000 small businesses as part of the Small Business Savings Drive.

In visiting small businesses, we have found many are hunkering down, cutting out unnecessary expenses and trying to manage their cash flow

Sam's Club 2009 Small Business Savings Drive is gaining momentum as hundreds of Sam's Club associates are reaching out to small business owners nationwide to help them identify cost-savings solutions.

Since the savings drive launch earlier this month, Sam's Club has helped nearly 30,000 small businesses identify $55,654,494 in savings potential. Year to date, more than 60,000 small businesses have taken advantage of the free cost comparison service, resulting in $126 million in savings.

"In visiting small businesses, we have found many are hunkering down, cutting out unnecessary expenses and trying to manage their cash flow," shared Catherine Corley, Sam's vice president of small business. "With revenue falling, lowering their (small business) costs is really the only thing they can control right now."

As Sam's Club Associates visit small businesses nationwide to perform cost-savings comparisons, business owners are surprised to find unexpected ways to save on every-day items. For example, a real estate office in Tulsa, Oklahoma, was paying 5 cents apiece for 12-ounce foam coffee cups, Corley stated. Sam's price was 2 cents, helping the company save more than $13,000 a year. A restaurant in Prescott Village, Arizona, will save $2,475.66 a year buying 4.5-ounce chicken breast fillets from Sam's, she added.
