Whether you have been a AAA member for 30 years, or you are looking into signing up for a membership for the first time, there are likely AAA member benefits that you are unfamiliar with. One of the reasons AAA membership is so popular is that there are a variety of unique benefits that members are provided with beyond the towing and roadside assistance services that AAA is known for. To help you get the most out of your current or future AAA membership, here are a few of the lesser-known benefits a AAA membership can provide members with.
While many people know that AAA will provide you with a jump-start if your battery dies, you may not be familiar with the other helpful battery services AAA provides. If you encounter problems with your car’s battery and you call the battery service number on your membership card, not only will you get a jump-start, but also, a AAA battery technician will help you to determine what went wrong by testing and diagnosing your car’s battery. If it is determined that your battery is dead, your AAA service member can even replace your battery on the spot with a new, reliable, AAA battery that comes with our extended warranty (free replacement for the first 36 months, prorated for the second 36 months).
Perhaps one of the least-known benefits of a AAA membership is AAA’s prescription savings program. If you don’t have health insurance, or if your insurance plan has expensive copays for prescriptions, then you likely know how costly out-of-pocket expenses for medications can be. However, AAA works with thousands of pharmacies nationwide to provide substantial savings to their members on prescription drugs. Using this program, you can save 15-35% on your medications, and you can even save on medications for your pets as well.
Service Reminders Provided by AutoManager
For many car owners, it can be difficult to keep track of what work you have had done on your car, which can make it difficult to remember when you are in need of routine maintenance such as an oil change or a tire rotation. This is where AAA’s AutoManager can come in handy. All you have to do is fill out basic information about your car, and recent work you have had done on it, and you will get email reminders when it is time to have your vehicle serviced. AutoManager will also help alert you if your vehicle is part of any recalls and will help you to find a AAA-certified service location.
Get Help Planning Your Next Trip
AAA members have always loved the maps and TourBooks they can pick up at their local AAA office; yet few take advantage of AAA’s trip planning services. However, the ins and outs of planning a trip can be stressful and time-consuming if you do it yourself. Instead, let a AAA travel agent plan your next trip for you. Whether it’s renting cars, booking hotels, or getting you on a Caribbean cruise, AAA can help get you where you want to go and make your trip as stress-free as possible.
For decades AAA has helped people when they become stranded on the side of the road.
