Doug’s Discount Deals: Spring into Savings

Doug Hutton

Springtime symbolizes a time of new beginnings and renewal. With many of us now working remotely, it may be a great time to move to that neighborhood you’ve been dreaming about. I recently helped my grown children plan moves, in and out of state, with trips to and from storage units, loading and unloading boxes. It was exhausting, yet exciting and satisfying, since I saved some of my hard-earned dollars using our Discounts & Rewards savings partners.

If you’re planning on moving or relocating in the near future, get on the move with some of my favorite deals:

Atlas Van Lines

Whether you’re moving down the street, across town, or across the country, transportation costs alone will run you thousands of dollars. Fortunately, AAA has teamed up with Atlas to bring discount prices on moving trucks, materials, and full-value protection. AAA members save an average of $600 on state-to-state moves with Atlas, as well as additional discounts on in-state moves, international relocations, and storage.


If you’re more the do-it-yourself kind of mover, then Penske is here for you. AAA members receive an exclusive savings of 12 percent or more on one-way and local truck rentals, moving accessories, and supplies.

SpareFoot Storage

Enjoy the convenience of easy storage for your most valuable belongings and get your first month free with your member discount at SpareFoot Storage. Plus, you’ll also get a $20 Amazon gift card.

Shell Fuel Rewards

AAA members save at least $0.05 per gallon on every fill-up at Shell with their Fuel Rewards program. For a limited time, AAA members can receive a special Spring Break bonus just by registering as a Fuel Rewards member. Once you’ve registered, you’ll get a registration bonus of $0.25 off per gallon—a total savings of $0.30 cents per gallon. The bonus offer is valid March 1–31, 2021. Restrictions apply.
