Exclusive savings available on hotel stays, theme park tickets, car rentals and more

ORLANDO, Fla., (May 4, 2012) – As the summer travel season approaches many Americans will be carefully planning a vacation within their budget. A little research and advance planning can result in big savings. Last year AAA/CAA members saved nearly 2 billion dollars using AAA discounts and the Show Your Card & Save® program. AAA recommends travelers take advantage of cheaper prices by booking early and researching any available discounts such as those available to AAA members on hotels, car rentals and attraction tickets.

“Higher gas prices and tight household budgets continue to cause anxiety for some travelers who are currently planning a summer getaway,” said Gail Acebes, director, AAA Partnership Programs. “AAA is pleased to offer members many discounts on travel products and services that will ease the financial burden of a memorable vacation.”

AAA membership provides extensive discounts to make a summer getaway more affordable. The following is a partial list of travel discounts available to AAA members:

Lodgings vary greatly by cost and amenities. AAA categorizes its 31,000 AAA Approved hotels on a scale of One to Five Diamonds to help travelers identify properties that meet their needs and budget.

Exams can indentify early signs of serious health conditions 

Whether you are a college student having trouble seeing the front of the classroom, someone who wears corrective lenses or are fortunate not to be experiencing vision problems an annual eye exam can complement your wellness routine. Many people wait until they experience a problem to schedule an appointment, but they may be missing an opportunity to gather important information about their health. AAA members save 30 percent* on eye exams and if necessary an additional 30 percent on a complete pair of eyeglasses at LensCrafters, Sears Optical, Pearle Vision, and Target Optical.

Health professionals say comprehensive eye exams can detect the early signs of serious health conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure and the onset of eye diseases including glaucoma and macular degeneration. In turn, early diagnosis of these diseases contributes to more successful treatment.

An eye exam gives the doctor an unobstructed view of blood vessels in the eye, allowing the doctor to see early signs of diabetes. If diabetes is left untreated, eye diseases such as retinopathy (damage to the retina), cataract (clouding of eye lens) and glaucoma (increased fluid pressure in the eye) could develop, blurring vision and eventually leading to blindness.

The American Diabetes Association reports that there are 23.6 million children and adults in the United States who have diabetes. While an estimated 17.9 million have been diagnosed with diabetes, unfortunately, 5.7 million people (or nearly one quarter) are unaware they are diabetic.

As we age, there is also greater risk for serious, sight-threatening conditions and these issues can affect driving. Problems may cause a gradual decline in vision and many individuals may not even be aware of this at the onset. To maintain healthy eyes, detect other possible medical conditions and retain clear vision AAA recommends making eye exams part of your wellness routine. Visit AAA.com/discounts for details on savings available to AAA members and to locate a participating location near you.

AAA’s Show Your Card & Save program is the largest member discount program in the world offering more than 164,000 locations for savings worldwide including 110,000 retail locations in North American and popular online retailers including Target.com, Shoes.com, FTD.com and more.

Orlando, Fla., September 9, 2009

Finding budget-stretching shopping discounts, travel deals and cheaper gasoline prices are just some of the ways AAA will help consumers this Fall and Winter 

While the worst of the recession may now be in the rearview mirror, many families are still searching for creative ways to stretch their holiday budgets this year.

Whether these expenditures involve gift-giving, travel or dining out, there are a variety of ways AAA can help its more than 51 million members financially this holiday season.

Rather than trying to save money by searching local shopping malls for a bargain, eating at fast food restaurants, and haggling with telephone operators for a decent hotel rate, AAA members can simply reach into their wallets for instant savings. They are also protected in several ways from major automotive-related expenses. And, they can go online to AAA.com to access various tools and products that will aid them this holiday season. If a family member or friend is not already a member of AAA, membership makes a great money-saving gift too. To join, go to AAA.com.

Six ways AAA helps consumers stretch and protect their holiday budgets

  1. Before they reach into their wallet for cash or a credit card, millions of AAA members pull out their membership card. AAA’s Show Your Card & Save® program is available at more than 164,000 locations in North America. Deals include discounts on meals, hotel rooms, themed attractions, car rentals, movie tickets, apparel and footwear, vision care, prescriptions and auto parts. Members also save online with well-known general merchandise retailers, as well as with many of the Internet’s best known and trusted specialty stores on items such as jewelry, floral arrangements, books and other media, and luggage. Visit AAA.com/discounts for a complete list. Last year, members saved an estimated $2.1 billion via the Show Your Card & Save program.
  2. When holiday plans include travel, seasoned travelers know to call or visit a AAA travel agent or go online to AAA.com/travel. AAA Travel Agency services are available to members and non-members, although members are entitled to special benefits. AAA, which operates the largest leisure travel agency network in North America, is able to provide access to unmatched travel values via its industry partnerships with leading travel providers, including the best tour and cruise companies, a wide range of hotel operators, numerous themed attractions and special destinations. In the current economy steep discounts, as well as free upgrades and extras are not uncommon, but holiday travelers should seek up–to-the-minute information for the best deals.
  3. AAA members don’t need to search all over town for the best prices on gasoline. Many members and non-members go to www.aaa.com/triptik for information on local gas prices updated as frequently as four times per day. AAA’s special relationship with the nation’s leading provider of retail fuel price information – Oil Price Information Service – makes this information available on AAA’s trip mapping and planning tool. This is also the ideal place to plan your holiday road trip. You can find hotels, restaurants and other points of interest. Plus, you can plot your travels to avoid toll roads if you wish. AAA maps and AAA TourBook® guides are also available free to members at their local office.
  4. A definite holiday budget buster can be an unexpected breakdown or major car repair. As a free public service, AAA inspects auto repair shops around the country and only approves those that meet and continually maintain high professional standards for equipment, customer service, cleanliness and training. To search for a AAA Approved Auto Repair shop nearby, visit AAA.com/repair. AAA recommends all motorists have their vehicles thoroughly inspected by a qualified technician at least once each year; especially if they are contemplating a long road trip. Regular inspections and maintenance can help consumers avoid major repair expenses, or the frustrating inconvenience of an automotive breakdown.
  5. When it comes to paying for all those holiday items, members can use a AAA credit card and reward themselves at the same time. The AAA WorldPoints® card allows members to earn points redeemable for cash, merchandise, gift cards, travel and more. Or, they can use the AAA Cash Rewards card that pays back 1 percent of total net retail purchases and there are no tiers to meet in order to get the best return possible. Cardholders not only get some of the best rewards available, the added benefits include no annual fee, reduced foreign transaction fee, and zero fraud liability.
  6. Should their vehicle fail them during the holiday rush, AAA’s legendary emergency road service is just a phone call or email away for members. Basic membership includes free towing from three to five miles (depending on local club policies) to any destination. AAA Plus members are entitled to 100 miles of free towing in any direction. Unlike most road service plans, AAA membership provides coverage for any vehicle they are driving or riding in. Experienced drivers know the expense of a tow alone will frequently pay the full cost of a one year membership in AAA. In addition, the motor club’s unique abilities as a roadside problem solver means members are not left alone to find a repair shop, arrange their own towing, secure a rental car or even make hotel arrangements should their holiday trip be disrupted. Last year, AAA responded to more than 29 million calls for roadside assistance.

As North America’s largest motoring and leisure travel organization, AAA provides more than 51 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. AAA clubs can be visited on the Internet at AAA.com.

Annual savings survey expands to include all AAA discounts 

AAA discounts, including those available via the organization’s Show Your Card and Save® program, saved AAA members more than $2.1 billion in 2008. Members that used the discounts had an average savings of $101 during the year. AAA members saved on everything from hotels and restaurants to home electronics and prescription drugs and much more. The average savings alone more than offset the cost of a typical AAA club membership.

For the first time, the annual survey was expanded to ask members about the savings they received from AAA’s entire portfolio of discounts including AAA’s Show Your Card & Save program, AAA Travel, AAA Financial Services and AAA Automotive Services. Utilizing the benefits of membership, AAA members can save on thousands of products and services from hotels and restaurants to auto repair and gas rebates.

“In the current economic climate, taking advantage of discounts is a necessity for many families,” said Tom Wilt, managing director, AAA Partnership Programs. “We are pleased to know that our members are taking advantage of the great savings we have negotiated for them to help ease the strain in household budgets.”

To find valuable discounts for AAA members, visit your local AAA club online at www.AAA.com. Club Web sites link to an easy-to-use database that allows users to search for savings by city, type of merchandise, business name or method of purchase.

AAA’s vast portfolio of discounts offers AAA members opportunities to save in many areas of household budgets. For example, members may be entitled to gas rebates through AAA Financial Services products and AAA Automotive offers discounts on NAPA Auto Parts, AAA Batteries and Battery Tenders.
