Someone explain the bennies of AAA. I just got an offer from them. Its $60 buck a year, how many times can you use it? I'm not reading the fine print. Its to damn small.

Is the 60 AAA plus.because that's what you want basic is only short tows gas flat
tires jumpstarts etc.With the plus plan you get free towing 100 miles.I've used it 3 times.I won't travel without it.I figure i've saved 4/500 .The last time i had to pay for an out of the pocket tow it was 300 from kittery to Portland.and that was like 5 years ago.I'm not sure how many tows a year.like 3/4,you don't even have to be in your own car to use it.I used it 3 times this year and had a friend call and ask to use it and i said no didn't want to put myself in a position to not have it available for me, Sorry for the ramble .but i'd say if your going to travel at all get it.

ive been a member for 31 years. well worth the money. but get the plus. and its good in every state. say you drive up to searsport. and you run out of gas and pull off the road and blow a tire then lock the keys in the car. your covered. look at the money you saved. but the driver will get a big laught out of it when he calls it in.

Also it gets you discounts on hotels. We've used it a few times for discounts and it saved us like 15% on hotel stays. That can add up to a fair bit of change if you stay in a hotel for an extended period or just short stays on a regular basis. The discounts they claim for food and shopping and stuff we've never seen.

They way it use to be was that it took you a year or so to get the "Plus" status, now I don't even think the call it "Plus", but with the upgraded package I think their down to the 3 free tows from unlimited! I can't tell you how many times I used that Taxi...I mean Towing service. Well worth it you can tow someone elses car with out even being their. 100 bucks a year for me and the ol' lady.
