Save more with mail-order prescriptions

You may have already discovered the value of the AAA Prescription Savings program. But did you know there’s an easy way to save even more? Some medications are available at extra savings if you choose home delivery.

Home delivery is a big convenience for consumers taking medications on an ongoing basis. To check the availability and pricing of your prescriptions, go to

It’s easy to switch a prescription to mail service. Call 1-866-AAA-SAVE and ask for FastStart service. You’ll be asked for your membership number, prescription information, doctor’s name and telephone number, your shipping address and your credit card number.

Delivery typically takes 10-14 days from the day you mail in your order. Standard shipping and handling are free.

AAA members also can save on prescriptions at Wal-Mart Pharmacy locations by showing their membership card at time of purchase. Mail order service also is available by calling 1-800-2REFILL.

AAA Prescription Savings is not an insurance plan. Savings are only available at participating pharmacies. Your savings may vary by pharmacy, prescription strength, dosage and quantity. Savings figures are compared to the usual and customary prices and may include home delivery. The program administrator may obtain manufacturer rebates and other fees based on your prescription drugs. These rebates and other fees may be retained by the program administrator or shared with you and/or your pharmacy. Cannot be combined with any other discounts.

Hotel fees are adding up

Hotel add-on fees raked in a record $1.6 billion in additional revenues for the industry in 2006. From restocking the minibar to providing Internet service, these fees can add up.

But consumers can combat rising costs. When making hotel reservations, ask that all fees– including taxes–be disclosed. And pay close attention to the final bill. If you didn’t use the minibar, ask the hotel to remove the fee from your tab.

When you book a room through AAA, you will know the full cost of your hotel stay.

“AAA offers hotel rates and packages that are inclusive of all taxes and hotel fees,” said Sue Wells, vice president of travel services. “There are no hidden charges.”
