Free AAA iPhone Helps Consumers Track Discounts

Posted May 27, 2009

American Automobile Association (AAA) is known for roadside assistance and discounts.  The application is able to pinpoint your current location and list businesses near you that accept discounts out of about 100,000 listings.  The application makes it easy to switch back-and-forth between maps and discount listings.

Every time that there is a business that accepts AAA discounts, there is a flag raised on the map.  Clicking on the flag shows the type of discount they have to offer.  For example, Busch’s Fresh Food Market it is listed that AAA offers a 24% discount on prescription drugs at 9 out of 10 pharmacies nationwide. AAA has about 51 million members.

Many of the discounts apply to hotels, pharmacies, grocery stores, etc.  If you’re a AAA member and have an iPhone, I highly recommend downloading this free application [iTunes link].
