ORLANDO, Fla. and BELLEVUE, Wash. (June 16, 2022) — AAA, one of North America’s largest and most trusted membership organizations, and T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS), America’s Un-carrier, today announced T-Mobile is AAA’s Official Wireless Partner just in time for summer road trip season.
To kick things off, T-Mobile customers can get a FREE year of AAA Classic or Basic membership starting June 21 … that means free 24-hour roadside assistance including towing, flat tire service, battery service and more for all T-Mobile Magenta, Magenta MAX and eligible small business customers. So say goodbye to road trip woes and hit Route 66 without worry.
Four out of five Americans are expected to take a road trip this summer,1 but nothing will ruin a vacation faster than being lost with spotty service or stranded by a breakdown. With the most 5G coverage on U.S. highways and main roads – more than twice the next provider – and legendary, trusted 24-hour roadside assistance, it just makes sense these two marquee brands are joining forces. T-Mobile’s network is the one AAA can rely on to keep their members connected along miles of roads across America. And now, a fleet of AAA’s own tow trucks will be equipped with 5G-connected tablets and phones to connect AAA service drivers with consumers in need.
“We know everyone is eager to travel — over 80% of consumers are planning to take a road trip this summer. So naturally, teaming up with widely trusted AAA was a no-brainer,” said Mike Sievert, CEO, T-Mobile. “This collaboration was built to help customers from both brands stay safer when they hit the road, and stay better connected with unbeatable 5G coverage across America’s highways.”
Access to AAA’s renowned roadside assistance is just one of many benefits T-Mobile customers will enjoy when they become AAA members. For over 120 years, AAA has proudly served its members by offering a wide array of automotive and travel services, discounts and rewards to over 80,000 retailers across the country, options for home, auto and life insurance, free identity theft protection and best-in-class financial services.
“Bringing the power of our two brands together is a game changer for consumers,” said Marshall Doney, President and CEO, AAA. “AAA’s unmatched suite of services and benefits paired with T-Mobile’s extraordinary 5G network will give travelers everything they need to keep their road trip on track this summer and beyond.”
And of course, there’s more for AAA members. AAA members can now get up to $100 via virtual prepaid Mastercard for activating a new account and switching two lines to the Un-carrier. This can be combined with other offers, like a $200 rebate for each of up to five new lines brought over to T-Mobile on a qualifying rate plan. Together, that could get you $500 for switching two qualifying lines. If they need a device along with it, they can pick from ANY of the current device offers, including deals to get a 5G phone, and save even more. Boom. Welcome to the Un-carrier.
