AAA.Com Lets Web Users Search For Savings At Home Or On The Road, AAA Says

Orlando, Fla., February 14, 2005

A new tool on AAA’s Web site (www.aaa.com) can help members find discounts on everything from tires and shoes, to prescription drugs and clothing. 

Search for Savings, a part of AAA’s Show Your Card & Save program, provides users a searchable database of more than 107,000 merchant locations in North America and another 40,000 throughout the world that offer discounts on products and services to AAA members.

“In 2004, members saved more than $520 million worldwide by showing their AAA membership card at participating merchant locations,” said Tom Wilt, managing director, AAA Partnership Programs. “With the new Search for Savings database we anticipate that more people will be finding and patronizing the merchants who are participating in the program.”

To access the database simply log on to www.aaa.com/save. Users who have not visited the AAA Web site before may be prompted to enter their zip code. Once on the site, users can search the database by city, type of merchandise, business name or method of purchase such as online, phone or storefront.

“It’s designed to help users find discounted products and services whether they are shopping in their home town or on the road,” said Wilt. “It has never been easier to save money.”

AAA Partnership Programs negotiates savings opportunities with companies throughout the United States. By offering reciprocal agreements with auto clubs in other countries, AAA can also provide its members with discounts while they travel abroad in more than 40 countries.

AAA.com is the on-ramp to AAA’s many consumer products and service on the Internet. The site connects users to their local AAA or Canadian Automobile Association club Web site where they can find a full range of helpful information and assistance, as well as information on how to join or renew membership.

As North America’s largest motoring and leisure travel organization, AAA provides more than 47 million members with travel, insurance, financial and automotive-related services. Since its founding in 1902, the not-for-profit, fully tax-paying AAA has been a leader and advocate for the safety and security of all travelers.
