If you aren't saving money by using your card, you are missing out. I swear by it. Not only for the roadside assistance (and I have had to use their services before), but for all the great discounts when I shop!
I recently went on a little shopping excursion with my mom and sister (yes, we all believe in retail therapy) and stumbled into a New York & Company. Not a store I frequent often, but my sister was raving about a pair of great knit pants that wear well for travel. (By the way, those pants are perfect- and I can't find them online, but they are the City Knit Luxe. We snagged a deal of buy one, get one 50% off!) But I digress...
After we had successfully found the pants and a terrific fall ensemble for my mom, we went to pay, and I remembered: Wait! The AAA discount! We saved 25% just by showing the card! (Thanks to my old roommate, Katie, who swears by NY & Co. and the AAA discount, too!)
So, it got me thinking: Where else does this little card perform discount magic?
Here's what I found (and mind you, I have AAA for Southern New England):
