It really does pay to have an AAA membership if your a frequent traveler. Despite having Emergency Roadside assistance through my insurance company I signed up for AAA just for the travel discounts. I notices some really good discounts for both Marriott hotels and Hertz car rentals and it didn't take long to realize that the total amount saved from the AAA discounts in a year more than justify the Basic Membership fee of $66.
Here are some examples of good AAA Marriott rates for the upcoming Thanksgiving Weekend:
Gaylord National Hotel, National Harbor MD AAA Rate $99 Regular Rate $179 Savings Per Night $80
JW Marriott, Houston, TX AAA Rate $97 Regular Rate $139 Savings Per Night $42
Crystal City Marriott, Arlington, VA AAA Rate $69 Regular Rate $99 Savings Per Night $30
