7 Ways Your CAA Membership Can Save You Money

When it comes to driving, having peace-of-mind is something you can’t put a price on. If you’re in distress and need a tow, run out of gas, or get locked out of a car (knock on wood), it’s an incredible relief to know that a reliable hand is just one phone call away, and that’s why we love CAA

With your membership, it’s not your vehicle that has coverage, it’s you. So if you’re with a friend and they run into the same car troubles, they can reap the benefits of CAA, too. 

With that being said, having a membership of your own can benefit you in more ways than just car troubles. For money-savvy individuals, the annual fee actually pays for itself in discounts and perks through the CAA Rewards program. Plus a CAA Membership gives you the freedom, choice, and flexibility you need to live your best life. 

Here are seven of our favourite ways to save money with a CAA Membership:

Shopping

One CAA Rewards perk that some might not know about is the ability to earn CAA Dollars. CAA has partnerships with a ton of worldwide retailers, which means that some of your favourites are probably on the list. With retailers like ALDO, Indigo, Sephora, TOMS, and more, you can earn CAA Dollars when you shop online, which you can later use towards renewing your CAA Membership, travel or a hotel stay when booking through CAA Travel, and much more. Each CAA Dollar is valued at one Canadian dollar, so there’s no math needed when you do your exchange. If shopping online isn’t your thing, hit the mall and use your CAA card at retailers like RW&CO., The Source, Addition Elle, and more for instant savings. 

Hotels

Perhaps one of our favourite perks that can be scored through CAA Rewards are the hotel perks. Accommodation discounts aren’t the easiest to snag, and vacations are already expensive enough as it is. But with CAA Rewards, you can get discounts of up to 10% off at hotels all across the globe, including at world renowned places like Marriott Hotels and Resorts, Hilton Hotels and Resorts, and the Park Hyatt, to name a few. 

Travel Entertainment

Have you ever wanted to see the Manhattan skyline from the water? Or tour Chicago on a segway? Or travel to the happiest place on earth, aka Walt Disney World? Well, those tours, attractions, and more are available at a discount with a CAA Membership. All you have to do is flash your membership card at the time of purchase. For a full list of the tours available, just visit CAA Rewards.

Local Entertainment

Getting out of the house to do something fun has never been easier or more affordable! Depending on where you’re based, you’ll have a bevy of different entertainment options. For example, in the greater Toronto area, you can score discounted tickets to Mirvish Theatre, Canada’s Wonderland, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and a trip up the CN Tower. 

Or if you’re based somewhere like British Columbia, you can find discounts for attractions like the Capilano Suspension Bridge, the Vancouver Zoo, the Scandinave Spa, and more. There’s so much to explore!

Movie Tickets

Calling all movie buffs! If you’re the type that loves catching a flick on the big screen, you’ll be happy to hear that CAA Members can save up to 18% on Cineplex movie tickets in Ontario  — all you have to do is head to the closest CAA Store to purchase. Whether you’re looking for senior, child adventure, or general admission tickets, you’ll find a discount, and the tickets are even valid for earning SCENE points, so you’re getting a double whammy of perks. 

If you’re elsewhere in Canada, take for instance, British Columbia, you can score cheap movie tickets and snacks deals of up to 30% off at Landmark Cinemas.

Gas

Petro-Canada

When you link your CAA card with your Petro-Points, you can earn 20% more Petro-Points every time you fill up your tank or make a purchase (some exclusions apply) at a Petro-Canada. Again, it’s a double whammy of perks. Those Petro-Points can be used on more gas, snacks for your next road trip, or they can even be exchanged for CAA Dollars, and you already know what those can do! 

Dining Out

Eating out doesn’t have to be a big production that costs an arm and a leg. In fact, there are restaurants all over the country that’ll give you a free item or a sweet discount when you tell them that you’re a CAA Member. Some of the restaurants that have exciting offers cooking up include Swiss Chalet, New York Fries, Milestones’, East Side Mario’s, and more. 

Some things aren’t too good to be true. To start saving on all of the above and more, sign up for a CAA Membership here
