Back to School Savings
12 back-to-school AAA savings to help you gear up for the new school year
Summer break is approaching its end, heralding the arrival of back-to-school season. That means it’s time to take stock of the clothes your kids have outgrown, the supplies they'll want throughout the school year, and the tech they’ll need for homework.

Save on kids' apparel

  • Unlike the kids who wear them, clothes don't get bigger every year. If last semester's school outfits aren't cutting it anymore, head to the nearest mall that participates in the Shop America VIP program. Just show your AAA membership card at the customer service or concierge department for discount and gift offers at participating stores (and restaurants, if you need a lunch break). Find your nearest participating Shop America VIP location.

 Save on kids' shoes

  • For style, variety, and comfort, it's hard to beat Skechers. Velcro straps, slip-ons, high tops, colorful patterns, athletic flair, light-up soles—no matter what your kid is looking for, odds are Skechers has something they'll want to walk out wearing. And of course, AAA members can save up to 20 percent off regularly-priced items. Find your nearest Skechers.
  • The rigors of gym class and recess make shoes critical, and AAA members can save 20 percent off the already-low prices at Reebok Outlet Stores. That discount isn't just for shoes, either—a new backpack or pair of running shorts qualify for 20 percent off, too. Find your nearest Reebok Outlet Store.

 Save on kids' glasses

  • Whether your student is getting glasses for the first time, needs a new prescription, or just wants more stylish frames to start the next grade, LensCrafters is a one-stop solution. It also offers a number of AAA discounts, including 30 percent off eye exams. Find your nearest LensCrafters.
  • Prefer to shop for frames online? Head to, which features a suite of designer kids' glasses and even offers a high-tech 3D virtual try-on option so you can make an informed decision. AAA members get 30 percent off any order of $100 or more throughout August. Get your AAA discount at

 Save on computers

Save on a family cellphone plan

  • Today's kids are more connected than ever, with a hearty appetite for new devices and wireless data. Ease their impact on your wallet with Sprint, which offers AAA members discounted rate plans and accessories. Plus, Sprint will pay your next AAA Classic membership renewal dues as long as you're a customer. See what Sprint offers.

 Save on moving to college

  • If your kids are old enough that "back to school" means "moving away to school," you might have more stuff to schlep than the family car can carry. Penske Truck Rental can give you a lift (literally), and AAA members save up to 20 percent on one-way Penske truck rentals with unlimited mileage. Save on a Penske rental truck.
  • Making the move on your own, but need boxes and other moving supplies? The UPS Store has you covered with a AAA discount of up to 15 percent off when you show your AAA membership card. Find your nearest UPS Store.

Save on train travel

  • Taking lots of luggage cross-country to college on an airplane can get expensive quickly. Take an Amtrak train instead, where your first two checked bags (up to 50 pounds each) are free, and two more are just $20 each—that's 200 pounds of luggage for $40. Not to mention you'll see broad swathes of America up close that you'd miss from 30,000 feet. Save on an Amtrak trip.
