Being a single woman who does all her own driving and mostly by myself it is important to have AAA. I do and it has been a blessing and saved me from being stranded more than once so what I pay per year is DEFINITELY worth the money. Whether it was a flat tire along the road or a battery that needed a jumpstart both of which I have had more than once. I even needed to have it towed once. Today I was fortunate to be home when it wouldn't start.
I have the basic coverage but as anyone knows they also have AAA Plus. Fortunately I haven't needed the PLUS. Well today I needed a jumpstart because when I went to move the car so I could mow. NOTHING happened. I placed the call to AAA and within about 1 hr he was there. The diagnosis. I NEED a NEW BATTERY. Since it was covered under my basic plan it was "NO CHARGE"
Now they offer to sell you one but I declined and went to a Advantage Auto here locally to get a new battery. The AAA fellow told me that is where it was purchased from. So off I went. A new battery would have cost about $115 plus tx. Now they offer fast and free installation. I can handle fast and free. The fellow who waited on me was super polite and helpful. He wanted to put it on the tester to make sure I needed it. Now I hadn't purchased it at this branch and so naturally I didn't have the receipt and wouldn't have begun to know where it was if I by chance still had it.
Now the fellow that waited on me told me it should have been still good and it was unusual that they had one go bad early. It was STILL under warranty. Now he talked to a another fellow there and even though I didn't have the receipt they replaced the battery NO CHARGE & of course they had the free installation so this was my second NO CHARGE of the day. Gee maybe I should play the lottery since it was a LUCKY day for me. NAH!!!! I wouldn't get THAT lucky.
I am most happy with MY two NO CHARGES of the day.
