AAA Discounts Card: 
Save Big in NYC!

AAA Discounts, (Automobile Association of America), provides a vast array of great discounts on New York City entertainment, tourist attractions, sporting events, restaurants, hotels, car rentals, car parking, hotels, and much more. Their discount website is not always updated accurately,
so you'll find many of their other discounts here. It also provides lots of fantastic free services such travel guidance, free maps and guide books (as many as you'd like) and more. For some odd reason, most of the places that offer discounts with this card do not seem to advertise it. So, I will give you the list. However, if you forget--just ask when you get there: "Do you provide discounts with the AAA card?" The worst that they can say is "no."

Originally, I became a member because it provides automatic car rental insurance. So, each time I rented a car I never had to purchase extra insurance. I saved a lot of money. It also provided free towing and assistance if my car broke down--it did! I've used it many times for that!

But as I became more familiar with the many discounts and features, I realized that I could make much more use of it. My reason for writing this is to alert you to the card's benefits. If you have the card already, learn about how you can utilize it to its fullest, both in your home town at in New York City. If you don't have one, consider buying one. Do the math to see if it pays for you to buy it.


You'll save loads of cash if you use your card during your New York City vacation. So many of the top New York City Attractions give discounts on entry fees and gift shops. Here is a small sampling:
