Anybody have AAA?

My son is heading for college 500 miles away and is taking his old reliable car with 220,000 miles on it. He's going all the way across the state of South Dakota which has some pretty desolate interstate.

For dad's peace of mind I'm thinking of purchasing AAA. Anyone had good/bad experiences? Waste of money? Better option?

We have it and it's worth it when you need it. I once had to call AAA when my piece of crap Maxima got stuck in a snow drift in my driveway.

You may only need it one time... when you are stuck in the middle of nowhere at he worst time of day, it's worth it to me for the family.

It's a great deal, and usually it pays for itself every year.

Only one tow job, or one service call per year and your already ahead of the game.

And it makes me feel better about the missus commuting to work knowing we have it.

I've had it for years. Only used the service once, but the other discounts make it worth it. They also offer identity theft monitoring at no charge.

For the first year you can be covered by AAA and have your son covered at no charge.

Never really considered it. We have Emergency Roadside Service coverage on our car insurance though.

I've had it for many years. Good peace of mind, and if you have to use it once during the year, it pays for itself.

Well worth it. I've had it for 20 years and it's been well worth the money.

I accidentally let it lapse one time many years ago and my car broke down in rural Texas near LBJ's ranch. That tow job cost me as much as 3 years worth of AAA, iirc. Since I renewed it, I've used it on several occasions.

We've had it for a year, but luckily never have had to use it. We saved enough money on hotel rooms and other discounts to pay for it last year.

Thanks for the responses everyone. Seems like a no brainer but was just wondering if anyone had any bad experiences or there were any catches I should know about.

The only negative I can think of is that sometimes, depending where you are, the local service provider for AAA may be slow to get to you. I've had to wait for a couple of hours before for someone to show up.

I have AAA plus for like 86.00 a year

I get 4 tows per year up to 100 miles as I remember.

Typically I don't use them but some day I think I will call AAA and have them "tow" my car from the bar to the house

This is the way to go. Nearly every car insurance company offers it as a rider. You don't need a stand-alone plan through AAA.

No, but I have roadside assistance with my insurance. It's only a few bucks a month. Any emergency service is probably worth it, I've used it a few times.
