Tis’ the Season for Deals
“It’s better to give than to receive,” is a wise proverb, but finding thoughtful holiday gifts for your loved ones — at the right price — can be tricky. This holiday season, simplify your shopping and maximize your giving by using your AAA discounts to their fullest. AAA helps you save on a wide variety of wonderful gifts. Here are just a few ideas.
Travel and Tickets
Travel and tickets to fun attractions make for bold gifts that stand out from the rest. AAA members qualify for discounted tickets to numerous attractions in Washington state and northern Idaho, such as Tacoma’s LeMay – America’s Car Museum, or one of the Argosy Cruises scenic boat tours in and around Seattle. If you are looking for a farther-flung destination, take advantage of AAA Tickets, with discounts of up to 40% on top attractions, such as Anaheim’s Disneyland Resort, LEGOLAND California Resort or dazzling Las Vegas shows. You also can give your family a gift of a lifetime with help from AAA Travel, where hundreds of travel options are available to members.
Subscriptions are another great gift idea for friends, family and fellow travelers. A subscription to more than 150 music and talk channels on SiriusXM would make any road trip more enjoyable, as would unlocking the stories, local insights and other rich audio content on HearHere. For movie buffs and news hounds, try Showtime or The Spokesman Review. Foodies will adore a gift subscription to the meal delivery services HelloFresh or Sunbasket, and kids will love the learning programs Homer and KiwiCo. All these partners offer a special extended free trial, a discount — or both!
Sometimes, the best gifts are temporary treats. Instead of another holiday trinket that will live in an old box in the garage, gift a beautiful bouquet from 1-800-Flowers or a delicious box of treats from Harry & David. Each offers 20% off to AAA members. Oil & Vinegar and Made in Washington are two local companies that offer delectable gifts with AAA savings of 10% to 15%.
For your loved ones who have everything, why not get them a thoughtful gift to wrangle their stuff? SCOTTeVEST offers 5% off their fashionable, durable travel wear. Known for its plentiful storage, one vest has 42 pockets of various sizes that hold just about anything.
Baggallini, Travelpro and Hedgren make wonderful bags in all shapes and sizes, beloved for travel and everyday carrying – plus, each offers a significant AAA discount.And what could make a better stocking stuffer than Sockwell’s groovy socks, all at 10% off.
Four-legged family members like holiday gifts just as much as the rest of us (especially if the gift is chewy and bacon-flavored). EzyDog offers a full line of dog harnesses, backpacks, life jackets — even rash guards — so your pooch can come along on any adventure. Kurgo also offers dog travel products, from to-go beds to dog hydration flasks and car hammocks. Both partners offer 20% discounts.
We may be a tiny bit biased, but AAA membership does make a great gift. Your recipient will enjoy the many benefits of membership — trusted roadside service, valuable discounts and so much more — and you receive peace of mind knowing that they’re protected.
