Are you just like me and thought that purchasing a CAA Membership would only give you a rebate on hotel accommodations and come in handy in case you needed Roadside Assistance if your battery died or you forgot your keys in the vehicle? Think again!
I am so excited to have been selected to participate in the CAA Spot the Partner Campaign! To my great surprise, there are so many incredible reasons to join CAA including benefits, rewards, and special CAA partner offers. I thought I would be writing about the peace of mind you get by owing a CAA Membership in case your tire blows up, you are out of gas, or the one time my transmission blew up during a horrid rainfall on the highway in the middle of nowhere with my preschool aged kids in the back seat, did not have a phone number of a tow truck, and was shaking my head as to why I did not have a Membership. Yes, a CAA Membership definitely has great benefits when you own a vehicle, but offers so much more to its Members!
CAA Dollars ®
Every time you present a valid CAA membership card at one of their participating partners, you can earn up to 20% in CAA Dollars ®. Every CAA Dollar ® you earn equals $1.00 CAD, and you can redeem CAA Dollars ® towards your next dream vacation, travel merchandise, membership renewal, gift memberships, or even your insurance renewal premium.
CAA Members earn CAA Dollar ® at a number of great partner locations and services across Canada and they can earn them online too with the brand new CAA eStore. It’s so easy to earn CAA Dollars ® when you Shop!
As a CAA Member you can get Rewards from various partners by showing your card in the store or by purchasing products in a CAA store. There are so many categories to choose from that you will definitely find a store near your city and for your travel needs:
- Entertainment & Attractions
- Entertainment & Attractions – Ticket Ops
- Home Services/Products
- Travel – Entertainment & Attractions
- Travel Services
For example, CAA Members can shop and save:
- 10% off all purchases at all participating East Side Mario’s locations
- 10% on regularly priced merchandise at Payless Shoes
- up to 20% at Best Western
- 20% off for Disney Live ticket purchases
- up to 20% at select merchants at Tanger Centers (opening October 17th in Ottawa!)
And of course there is also the online CAA eStore where Members earn CAA Dollars ®, which can be used towards travel and CAA Membership renewal. The wide selection of eStores will be ideal for every family member like West 49, Forever 21, Roots, Dell, Sportcheck, Starbucks, Bogs, Walmart, Aldo, and more. Perfect for back-to-school Shopping!
