Referral Refresh

11/10/2014 AAA Introduces Discounts and Rewards

AAA Discounts and Rewards logo

Every good idea deserves an occasional refresher. In July, AAA announced a new identity along with an upgrade for its member benefits program. Discounts and Rewards (formerly Show Your Card and Save) offers more ways to save money with online reward points good for cash.

AAA encourages members to recoup the cost of membership by taking advantage of the program. By moving with Atlas, for example, members receive full value protection at no cost in addition to a special discount on moving services. Atlas Marketing has been busy helping Atlas agents get updated with the new logo and marketing message, as Atlas is AAA’s exclusively recommended mover.

“When a member of AAA moves with Atlas, they easily save more than enough to pay for their club membership,” says Rob Shetler, Shetler Moving & Storage of Ohio (1831). “On average, full-value protection in itself represents $580 per move.” 

Rob and Bob Shetler, Shetler Moving & Storage (1830), are administrators of the AAA Referral Program. Since partnering with AAA in 2010, Atlas agents have provided approximately 8,000 moves for AAA members, including almost 3,000 moves last year.

“AAA is looking ahead, evolving their benefits to stay fresh and appealing for members,” says Rob. “We’re pleased to be a partner and bring the added value in moving that supports the AAA brand.”
