Doug’s Discount Deals: Safe, healthy, financially fit

Doug Hutton

Who’s ready to put 2020 behind us and start a brand-new year? I know I am. It was a difficult year just trying to stay safe, healthy, and perhaps even financially fit. As always, AAA Discounts & Rewards is here to help save you money every day. Here are a few of my favorite discounts to help you get 2021 off to a great start.

Safety first

Keeping members safe is what we do—on the road and at home. We’ve partnered with SimpliSafe to offer AAA members a free HD security camera and two free months of 24/7 monitoring with the purchase of any new system.

If I’ve learned one thing this past year, it’s that I’ve had to do a lot more day-to-day shopping online, so protecting my identity has never been more important. AAA offers free identity theft monitoring from ProtectMyID, allowing AAA members to detect and resolve identity threats with Dark Web Surveillance, alerts, and day-and-night Fraud Resolution Support. Visit to compare the three coverage options:

  • Essential – FREE with your AAA membership
  • Deluxe – $10.95/month
  • Platinum – $15.95/month

Invest in your health

Now more than ever, it’s important to take charge of your health and well-being. If you need an eye or hearing exam, or need to fill a prescription medication, here are a few healthy discounts:

  • LensCrafters –Get a 50 percent discount on lenses when you purchase a complete pair of glasses.
  • Connect Hearing - Save 45 percent on a variety of hearing aids and more. Plus, schedule a complimentary hearing evaluation at 800-222-1076 or
  • GoodRx – Save up to 85 percent on prescriptions with a GoodRx prescription savings card available at

Spend less, save more

Start the year off right by reducing your household expenses. You may be able to save money on a new loan or by refinancing an existing loan with AAA Home and Auto Loans. Interest rates are still at all-time lows, so it’s a great time to evaluate your loan needs.

You could also save money on your auto, home, and life insurance policies, as AAA Insurance offers competitive rates from leading insurance companies, and special AAA Member pricing and discounts often apply. Contact your local AAA Insurance agent for a no-obligation policy review.
