Finally having reached retirement, I was excited to join the Good Sam Club only to have my high expectations set aside by reality. As part of the Club's package, I signed up for the roadside assistance program in case I got in trouble. Being risk adverse, I had called Good Sam to see if the service was good in Canada, only to be told that it was, no problem. Then we broke down.

My wife, who had gone out to gas up the car, called from a convenience store crying to say that the Good Sam people had told her that the service was not available in Canada. They could "recommend someone," but she would have to pay for it. I called and the person who answered the phone said that he was unsure and read me the policy, adding, "This is ambiguous." Then he said that he had to talk to someone in "Policy Services" and would get, "right back to me." Many minutes later, I hung up.

Good Sam is not a money-making business focused on its bottom line.
Call it, "We Just Want Your Money Sam."
