Heck, that's almost worth the price of joining on its own. I had it when I was traveling for work a lot, and I always asked if they had a discount. Restaurants, hotels, coffee shops even. More often than not, there was something, even if it was free breakfast at the hotel restaurant.
But a prescript
ion discount? That's something to look into. And you don't even have to own a car to get it. It'll cover whatever car you are in, even if you are a passenger.
And it's great for when you have a flat tire. They will send someone out to put the spare on for you. Even if it's sitting in your own driveway. Voice of experience. I couldn't get in there and wrestle with all of that stuff. I just let the tow truck driver deal with it. Swapped it out, and followed me to the closest tire shop no problem. And I think they still provide emergency gas if you need it. Up to like 5 gallons to get you to the next station if you run out by pushing the gas gauge a little too hard. No heavy lifting required.
And some states offer a discount on membership if you are disabled or qualify for a handicapped plate. Very underrated program. I'm a fan.
Edited to add - And don't forget about
senior discounts. If you qualify, there's a ton more.
