We regularly receive phone calls from people that are price shopping or exploring their options that ask:
“What’s the difference between you and Sam’s Club?”
Although we personally feel like it’s comparing Michelin Star to fast food, we wanted to help you to understand the key differences by creating a comparison chart of the big differences.
But first, I want to share why it’s difficult to compare.
Because fundamentally, we both offer entirely different things.
Sam’s Club is a discount warehouse that focuses on selling hearing AIDS, whereas Holland Hearing Center is a medical provider focused on delivering premium hearing CARE.
Although we both strive for the outcome of better hearing, the way that we achieve that is completely different.
Our hope is that this comparison chart helps you to understand the key differences and which option is the best for you or a loved one.
The first big difference that you’ll see is the warranty and cover that you receive.
Whereas Sam’s Club offers a one-year repair warranty with the option of purchasing more years, and no loss and damage cover if you accidentally lose or break your hearing devices, Holland Hearing offers five years on both of these, giving you complete peace of mind that you’re covered, no matter what happens.
The second significant difference is the service that you receive.
Holland Hearing offers same-day visits to our service center for repairs, adjustments and attention, comprehensive annual examinations, comprehensive annual reprogramming, and the promise that you’re always treated by a doctor of audiology.
This way, we can ensure that your devices are properly maintained, cared for and that your hearing health is our number one priority.
However, the area where Sam’s Club stands out is “The Cheapest” and with single hearing devices from $379.00 – they are by far the lower cost if you’re looking for basic amplification.
But depending on your circumstances, you may benefit from Holland Hearing’s managed insurance benefits specialist who can maximize your insurance benefits to minimize your out-of-pocket expense, and our options for payment plans, allowing you to break your investment into a small, affordable monthly payment as low as $99/month for fully inclusive care.
Another area that Sam’s Club stands out is its convenience. Often open evenings and weekends, they may be easier to visit than our standard office hours.
But by partnering with Holland Hearing Center, you’re able to take advantage of “Live Assistance” and “Virtual Appointments,” allowing you to get access to on-demand audiologists when you need help and attention via an app, without having to travel to us.
In summary, our priority is that you treat any form of hearing loss, whichever option that you decide.
But before making the decision, we now hope that you feel more informed.
