Doug’s Discount Deals: Fall into savings

Doug Hutton

It’s almost fall, and that means back-to-school time, and Old Man Winter is just around the corner.

Perhaps you have children who are heading off to college. Perhaps you find yourself driving more than you did a year ago. Or perhaps you’ve been putting off some much-needed car maintenance so that you’re ready for snowy weather. Whatever your situation may be, here are a few ways your AAA membership can help you save money.

Penske Truck Rental

If you’ll be moving a student to college, or even just moving yourself, AAA members can save 12 percent or more on truck rentals, moving accessories, and supplies with Penske.

Shell Fuel Rewards Program

With gas prices on the rise, filling up at a participating Shell station will save you 5 cents per gallon (up to 20 gallons) as part of their Fuel Rewards Program. Not yet a member? Sign up online. Plus, receive an instant 3 percent discount when you purchase a Shell Gift Card at your local AAA branch. Visit for more details.


Looking for your next outdoor vehicle? AAA members get special pricing, plus up to $1,350 in bonus savings, on new and used RVs, boats, motorcycles, ATVs, UTVs, jet skis, golf carts, and more—all from the comfort of your own home. Plus, save on parts, service, accessories, gear, and more from Go Rollick.

Grease Monkey

If you’ve been putting off getting your oil changed, Grease Monkey is your one-stop shop for oil changes and auto maintenance needs. AAA members save 10 percent on full-service oil changes.
