AAA - Safe way to $ave!

Most people have heard of AAA, and it goes without saying that if you own a car, having a membership can come in handy, especially if your car breaks down and needs to be towed. But, I wanted to fill you in on some of the lesser known benefits to being a AAA member.

First, make sure to have your membership card handy while shopping. Members save 10% at places like Sports Basement, Payless shoes, Banana Republic and Gap outlets.  In addition, save 5% on UPS shipping and cell phone service with Sprint. Additional membership benefits include discount admission to zoos, amusement parks (Six Flags, Universal Studios, Seaworld) and museums across the country. Most hotels offer a AAA discount rate, as do car rental companies. 

What is your favorite benefit of having a AAA membership?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!


  1. Thank you!!! I knew about hotel savings, but I didn't know all of that other stuff.
    My favorite thing about AAA is the peace of mind! And seniors should look into this type of thing with AARP.

  2. The AAA office in my city offers a travel agent as well as luggage discounts

    1. Luggage discounts? That sounds great. Do you mean on the purchase of luggage, or airline fees?
