Learn how to get the most value from your AAA card

Most members know that AAA will rescue them at the roadside if their car breaks down, but there’s a host of other AAA services that will rescue your family budget, your vacation, and more.

At the upcoming “Maximize Your Membership” meetings, you can find out how your membership not only can save you money but can add convenience to your life.

At these free and informal presentations, you’ll learn about AAA’s retail discounts on things like prescriptions, hotel stays, restaurants, and clothes. And you’ll discover the savvy travel planning available through full-service AAA Travel Agency locations. Other topics will include AAA insurance and automotive services, like AAA’s Mobile Battery Service.

Members can save time and money on the go with updated AAA Mobile App

The AAA Mobile app has been updated with an array of new enhancements designed for a better member experience. The updated app features a more intuitive layout with easier access to features that will save you time and money.

Included in the improvements is an updated iPad version, with a number of new functions previously unavailable to users. The updated iPad version now features:

  • A streamlined card layout design that provides easy access to member services
  • AAA’s newly enhanced TripTik Travel Planner product for mapping and route planning, allowing members to build, access, and share trips across the mobile and online platforms
  • Expanded membership features, including displaying your current member status and providing the ability to easily renew your membership

With the app, users can locate more than 59,000 AAA Approved and Diamond Rated hotels and restaurants, and find the more than 164,000 locations offering member discounts. The app maintains a scannable membership card (added through Passbook), so taking advantage of money-saving offers is convenient.

Trip planning is now easier than ever with AAA Drive Trips and AAA Travel Guides integrated into the app’s mapping feature. Users can get to their destinations quickly and safely with traffic and construction information provided via the app. In addition, finding the lowest gas prices is simple, as maps display station locations and provide updated fuel prices.

Whether you’re on the road or at home planning a trip, the updated AAA Mobile app will help to make travel easier.
