Savings add up for AAA members

Founded in 1902 by a group of “early adopters” of the automobile, AAA’s first members were interested in the art and sport of the newfangled contraptions. Pioneers in the true sense of the word, they set about working to provide for the education of its members and of the public “in the mechanical science pertaining to the construction and skillful use or management of motor vehicles,” according to the motor club’s initial bylaws.

And since then, vehicles have been at the center of AAA’s mission.

We’ve advocated for the building of roads, the implementation of sound laws that govern driving, and the development of safer cars. We have evolved since those first days to offer a host of services and benefits that members can use every day to make their lives better, from maps and travel planning to retail discounts at thousands of online and in-store locations, but driving has always been at the heart of what we do.

And now we’re pleased to announce a pilot project that combines our passion for all things automotive and our desire to help members save money. We have established a partnership with BP to offer members an exclusive discount on gas. For a limited time, AAA members who enroll as new BP Driver Rewards members can earn 25 cents off per gallon on the next fill-up (up to 20 gallons) after every $100 spent on BP gas at participating locations. To enroll, members must simply visit, complete the enrollment form, and enter the first six digits of their AAA membership card in the “Promo Code” field to receive the exclusive offer. More details and restrictions.

AAA strives to deliver value to our members, and this is another example of how we try to make a difference in our members’ lives. The BP discount joins a growing list of savings that can more than help pay for the cost of your membership. Participating businesses offer discounts of up to 30 percent on shopping, dining, hotel accommodations, car repairs, and even prescription medications. And with our AAA Mobile app, you can use your smartphone to see all of the merchants in your area that offer AAA discounts.

From everyday necessities, like fuel for your car, to big life moments, AAA savings can take your life from good to better. To find out how you can keep more money in your wallet, visit today. Every dollar counts, and we want you to keep as many of them as possible.
