Do Seattle Car Owners Need AAA Services?

Category: Auto Insurance, Feature. Written by Cameron Wong 

All it takes is one time for your car to break down on I-90 in a snow storm, or getting a flat tire in downtown when all the bars have closed, to realize the importance of owning a AAA card. Driving in the Northwest is different than other parts of the country. The wet and unpredictable weather is a major factor when deciding if AAA services are needed or not. Having the comfort of the AAA card in your wallet, is the security many Seattle car owners need to feel safe.

“When weather hits here in Washington it’s pure chaos,” says Cook. “Most folks don’t want to change their tires when the weather is bad, it’s easier to use AAA. We offer an all encompassing emergency service. If you’re locked out we’ll send out a locksmith, we can replace a battery if needed, we even deliver gas.”

While most Seattle drivers know AAA for jumping a dead battery or changing a tire, their services go way beyond the tow truck, as long as you know what you’re buying.

“AAA Washington is so much more than just our emergency road service,” explains Jennifer Cook, the spokesperson for AAA Washington. “We offer full leisure travel services and personal lines insurance as well. And our discount programs can save you more in a year than it actually costs to be a member.”

There are a number of money saving discounts to take advantage of. Card holding members can receive discounts all over the state and across the nation. While most people are careful how they spend their money these days, AAA can be an untapped resource to just about any Seattle area driver.

Who Doesn’t Love a Deal?
Here are a select few discounts AAA Washington offers:

  • 30% off for eye wear (Lenscrafters, Pearlevision, Sears Optical)
  • 20% off Sirius Satellite Radios
  • 20% off at the EMP/Science Fiction Museum
  • Up to 20% on Prescription Drugs
  • Pay $20.09 Jiffy Lube Signature Oil Change

Considering the low annual price on just the basic service, using AAA just once or twice a year is well worth the cost. If members utilize the services and discounts, AAA could be worth every penny. It’s all in one shopping for your road traveling needs. Plus, you never have too many maps!
