Today, AAA members can enjoy discounts on tickets for theme parks such as Busch Gardens, Sea World and Universal Studios, a price cut on movie tickets, retail discounts at Target, Payless and Gap Outlets, and enjoy savings at optical retailers and health clubs — just to name a few.
I’ve been a member of AAA since college and have had success with travel discounts, but until now hadn’t ever thought to pull out my card for everyday shopping.
AARP members get plenty of benefits, too. The over-50 crowd can enjoy discounts at Tanger, Reebok, Rockport and Ashworth Outlets, Walgreens and Teleflora. Members can also access special coupons and online savings through sites such as Kellogg’s, Grocery Coupon Center and Everyday Savings Center. Other perks include discounts at Denny’s, Regal movie theatres, Gold’s Gym and ADT Home Security.
If you identify with any of these niche groups, check out the benefits and consider joining. In addition to the standard travel and lodging discounts, some perks include discounts on Apple products (American Legion), savings on mailing and shipping (NAR) and savings on hearing aids (NRA).
Though membership to these groups does require a yearly fee, most of the time the savings outweigh the cost — if you use what’s being made available.
