Jump-starting, towing, bail, and discounts

Are you a member of AAA? Did you know that in addition to the peace of mind that comes with roadside assistance, your membership entitles you to discounts on hotels? Of course you did.

But did you know that it also entitles you to 5% off on gift card purchases? (Enter your zip code to see available options for your area.)

Sure, 5% isn’t a whole lot. But if you’re buying gift cards anyway (for teachers, for hard-to-buy-for relatives, or just because it makes stopping for lunch a little easier), why not save money if you can?


  1. it can also get you discounts on prescriptions if you don’t have insurance coverage for them.

  2. A couple of years ago I found that I could save money over AAA by switching to Better World Club (http://www.betterworldclub.com/). I wasn’t using the travel discounts and the annual membership savings were better for me. I have gotten equally good roadside assistance with them as I did with AAA.

    Better World Club also has an environmentalist bent, but at Want Not, I assumed you’d be more interested in the money savings.
