6 Ways to Get the Most Out of Your Membership

By CAA Saskatchewan

Living in Saskatchewan we can all relate to experiencing slippery highways or getting a flat tire on the way to work. That’s just life. When situations like this happen, it’s part of the reason why your CAA membership is so handy.

Aside from roadside assistance, your membership comes with all sorts of extras. Make sure you use your CAA Member benefits in every way possible to get the best bang for your buck all year long! Learn how to get the most out of your membership starting with these 6 tips. 

1. It Pays for Itself

The average cost of calling a tow truck is $100 or more. A basic membership gives you four annual service calls for the price of one! Plus, your membership can actually pay for itself from your everyday purchases. Earn CAA Dollars when you shop at participating retailers like Dulux Paints, Saskatchewan Parks and Enterprise – just to a name few. Next, redeem your dollars for a variety of products and services, including merchandise, your membership renewal or even your next vacation – the choice is yours! Every CAA Dollar you earn is equal to $1 CAD, then stored in your membership account to be used at your leisure. Curious to see if you have any? Sign into your CAA My Account and check your balance, then start shopping and saving!


2. Deals and Discounts

Why spend more when you can save with your membership? Receive deals and discounts up to 30% at over 100,000 participating retail locations and services across across Canada and the U.S with CAA Rewards Partners. Save when you shop for clothing at RW&Co. or get the latest tech from The Source. If you’re more of a foodie, then enjoy savings at your favourite restaurants like Montana’s, East Side Mario’s, Original Joe’s and more. We also have exclusive online rewards partners like Hudson’s Bay, Indigo, Sephora, Home Depot, LEGO and many others where you can earn CAA Dollars with online purchases. Plus, you receive exclusive pricing on merchandise in-store from top-tier travel brands like Samsonite, Lug, and Pacsafe as an added CAA Member benefit.


3. Insurance Savings

Everyone knows that insurance is a fact of life and helps to protect you, your loved ones and everything you own. Knowing how important that is, we offer a variety of insurance products including home, auto, travel, recreational, personal accident, and more.

5. More Than Towing

As a member, you know your Basic, Plus or Premier membership comes with at least four service calls which are always available 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week/ 365 days a year. However, did you know you can use those calls for more than towing? Your service calls can also be used to boost or change your vehicle battery, install your spare when you get a flat tire, unlock your door when you lock your keys in the vehicle and even deliver fuel if you run out of gas. Service calls can also be used for bike assist if your bicycle lets you down or ride assist if you are unable to personally drive your vehicle home due to personal health issues, vision concerns and other physical impairments.


6. YOU Are Covered, Not Your Vehicle

One of the most important things to know about your CAA membership is that it covers YOU, not your vehicle. This means that even as a passenger in a friend or family members vehicle, you are still covered by your membership and can use your service calls if you run into trouble. Plus, your membership covers you ANYWHERE across Canada and the U.S – that’s a lot of coverage! So the next time you go on a road trip, travel with confidence knowing that even if your friend’s vehicle breaks down CAA will come to the rescue, give you the assistance you need and then send you back on your way in no time.


All These and So Much More

Now that you know some of the extra features that come with your membership, remember to shop and earn CAA Dollars, save with rewards partner deals, receive exclusive member pricing on merchandise, enjoy discounts on insurance and travel with someone you trust.
