AAA lets more than 50 million drivers across North America explore the open roads with peace of mind, thanks to the perks and discounts of membership. The comprehensive emergency road service provides 24-hour, onsite mechanical services almost anywhere in the United States for common car troubles such as flat tires, dead or murdered batteries, and creamed-corn-related engine troubles. Basic-membership benefits also include up to $500 in reward money for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perp who stole an AAA member’s vehicle and up to $400 in legal fees incurred from racing against horses or trying to jump stables filled with horses. The AAA card also functions as a shoddy paperweight and a magic pass to a bevy of savings and discounts at businesses across the country. Additionally, AAA’s travel services can help avoid dead ends or an accidental trip to the Yarn Factory Museum of Yarn.
