I was going through some literature from Gail Acebes, director of partnership programs for the American Automobile Association's (AAA) corporate offices in Heathrow, FL, and BAM!
There they were -- discounts on everything from drugs to shoes! They are surprise discounts available to virtually every AAA member.
So I called Cheryl Keating at AAA's Auto Club of the South in Memphis. She verified every one of them.
* PRESCRIPTION DRUGS. AAA members can get discounts that average 35 percent on generic drugs and 15 percent on brand-name prescriptions at most pharmacies. Just make sure they don't conflict with your prescription drug plan.
* SHOES. 10 percent off shoes at Payless ShoeSource locations.
* GLASSES. 30 percent off glasses at LensCrafters.
* COMPUTERS. 10 percent off certain models of Gateway computers.
* BOOKS, DVD'S, CD'S. Five percent off these items at Barnes & Noble.
* FLOWERS. 20 percent off flowers if you go to www.ftd.com/aaa.
You can even find out what discounts are available to AAA members only in your area. Go to www.aaa.com/save. Type in your zip code and watch what pops up!
