When I pulled out my AAA membership card to get a discount for Universal Hollywood tickets, I locked eyeballs with the words "Years as Member: 43" printed on the card. I nearly passed out.
That seemed absolutely impossible until I did a little calculation. It's true. AAA has been an important part of my life for more than four decades.
If you are a member of AAA, it's likely that you depend on it to get you out of an automotive bind with a roadside jump-start, a gallon of gas or a tow.
And so you know, it also comes to the rescue should you ever lock your keys in the car. Or a sleeping baby. Let's just say that AAA has saved my bacon on more than one occasion.
AAA membership has so many benefits other than just roadside assistance -- some I've taken advantage of in the past but many others I didn't even know about.
If you're a member, perhaps you'll also be surprised by all of the hidden benefits in your membership.
AAA is a nonprofit organization with branches in all states. Not all branches offer the same benefits, so be sure to check with yours. Many AAA branches offer the following benefits with membership:
PRESCRIPTION DRUG DISCOUNTS
