Even the most careful drivers can be waylaid by tire trouble, an overheated engine, or deer foraging for hamburger wrappers. Prepare for on-the-road mishaps with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a one-year classic primary membership from AAA (a $50 value).
The automotive club AAA serves more than 52 million members nationwide. Although membership offers myriad benefits, AAAers benefit most from the peace of mind provided by the comprehensive roadside assistance program. On-site mechanical services are available almost anywhere in the United States for common car troubles such as flat tires, dead or murdered batteries, and creamed-corn-related engine troubles. Benefit highlights include free installation of spare tires, free battery boosts, free towing to nearest AAA Car Care Center, and free fuel delivery (pay pump price for fuel). Classic members are also entitled to coverage for up to $50 in locksmith services, up to $1000 for auto theft, and up to $500 in legal defense fees incurred from racing against horses or trying to jump stables filled with horses.
All AAA members are eligible to receive free maps, free travel books, and half-price international guides. The AAA card also functions as a shoddy paperweight and a magic pass to a bevy of savings and discounts at thousands of businesses across the country. Additionally, AAA's travel services can help you avoid a trip to the Yarn Factory Museum of Yarn.
- I'm very happy with my AAA membership and will continue to renew it. Having AAA coverage also gives me a discount on my insurance that pretty much covers the cost of having it. Plus, during the year I take advantage of the discounts offered by being a AAA member. For our household, it is definitely worth being a member! – dlstewart, Epinions.com
- I’ve found AAA’s website to be easy to navigate, helpful, and fairly un-irritating. I’ve also found that AAA’s services and peace of mind really are worth the membership fee. – Trawma, Epinions.com
AAA Northwest Ohio Car Care Plus
On March 4th, 1902, Chicago hosted a meeting of like-minded futurists. They represented nine different automobile clubs that had recently formed as vehicles started hitting the roads across the nation. They came together at the summit to form a national motoring organization, and the result of their efforts became known as the AAA. Today, AAA takes the attendant hassle out of driving with roadside assistance, insurance, vehicle maintenance, and travel guides for the entire country.
AAA Northwest Ohio Car Care Plus focuses specifically on tuning up and repairing vehicles from three company-owned facilities scattered across Toledo. At each location, skilled techs wield the latest equipment to perform everything from simple oil swaps to full-service mechanical and electrical repairs and upgrades, such as teaching cars not to shut off in panic whenever they hear lightning.
