I’m sure a lot of members like me out there have a AAA membership. What many don’t realize is aside from the roadside assistance, they also offer a lot of additional discounted perks to shopping, attractions, dining, etc.!
My family and I were going to go to the aquarium today where tickets per person are pretty expensive making a trip for a family of 4 well over $100! So naturally I looked up coupons online and had almost given up since all of them had expired when I called the place and asked if they had any discounts. The rep said if I buy them from my local AAA branch I can get them for cheaper! We made a quick stop and bought our tickets there and saved $36.70! It was so quick and easy! They also offer so many other discounts for other attractions I am really excited to try out later.

Hi Collin! I wanted to submit my picture of my UPS store receipt and remind everyone to remember to ask for any available discounts. I have AAA and I generally do not remember to ask various retailers if they have discounts for AAA members. I usually only remember to ask at hotels or on a vacation.
Recently, I was mailing a package at my local UPS store, as I have done many times before, especially during and after the holidays. I suddenly remembered to ask if they offered any shipping discounts – AAA, AARP, etc. – or any available coupons. To my surprise, they did! This UPS store offers 5% off the cost of UPS shipping when you are a AAA member.
This was a great reminder to me that “If you don’t ask, you won’t receive.” I need to always ask if I want to know if there are discounts available. Every little bit counts!
