    I'm wondering if anyone has AAA. If so, have you used it? What have you used it for? Have you used it for discounts on online shopping or at restaurants or local stores?

    I get the offers in the mail from time-to-time. I was thinking about sending it in.

    I used to have it. It came in handy for planning trips. The maps etc were free to members, AND we got discounts on movies. Jim and I saw "Titanic" 11 times and it was only about $5.00 each time.

    When I got my eyeglasses, they were 25% off, and two towings last summer more than paid off the membership. Theme parks and hotels also offer discounts. Look at their website or local office and see what other perks are available in your area.

    I have AAA, last year they towed my SILs truck and changed the tire on my DHs truck. I also have their auto & homeowner's insurance, they are the best insurance company to deal with. DH totalled his truck last year they assessed his truck on wednesday and we picked up a check on thursday at the local AAA office and hour away, now that's service.

    Got it. AAA with RV+. Bought it when we got our first camper. And yes, I have had to use it. Car died on me going to Dr. one day summer before last. Called AAA, tow truck came and took it to my mechanic. All n/c because I had not used up my mileage. Have also gotten AAA discounts on some of our camping rates.

    I've used it for dead batteries, trip planning and discounts on park tickets, hotels and rental cars. It's nice knowing that if I have any car issues, I can just give them a call no matter where I am.

    Yes, it has been great, many years I used it alot. Now not as much but the knowledge I have it is worth the worry of breaking down, flat tire, dead battery etc... My mom got it for me when I moved out, I got it for my grown kids.

    We have it, and have for years since they helped us with a rental car company problem. We reserved and rented a car from one of the BIG car rental agencies. We arranged through our phone reservation to drop the car at a second airport a week later. No problem when we made that reservation, no problem when we picked the car up...then when our credit card bill came they attempted add a charge for the drop elsewhere, a HUGE, HUGE fee -- around $1,500 claiming that they could find no record of the second drop reservation. No matter what we did the rental agency was not going to drop that charge. Hubby got the idea to call AAA to ask for advice. Although we didn't make our reservations through AAA guess what, they got involved and the rental company backed off completely and dropped the extra charge! This one "complimentary" service by AAA has paid for their membership fees many many times over.

    We booked a trip to Hawaii through them and that was wonderful, and we saved quite a bit.

    When our daughter was a teenager she ran out of gas on the freeway while her dad and I were out of town. AAA took care of her quickly. Also, we've had to be towed on a couple of occasions and AAA has always served well.

    For those reasons we continue to keep their service and do recommend them.

    So, if you have an RV, you need a different plan than the "any vehicle you drive or any vechicle you are riding in"? We have a motor home.
    Do you have a certain amount of mileage they cover you for?

    Wow! Thanks for all of the input on this. I would still like to hear more. I'll have to let my husband read all this.
