The Automobile Club of Southern California is busy this summer not only saving members from car breakdowns, but also from overpaying for back-to-school clothes, supplies and other expenses, both online and at the cash register.


Auto Club members who use or AAA’s free app available for iPhone and Android at can immediately access hundreds of retail and online merchants to save on everyday needs.


“The AAA Discounts & Rewards program has expanded savings opportunities beyond traditional stores to allow members to take advantage of online shopping convenience combined with exclusive member savings and rewards,” said Jon Carlew, manager of AAA Discounts & Rewards. “By shopping online through or on the AAA app, members will both save money and earn points they can use to spend on future purchases.”


Here are a few of the many online and retail merchants that are now offering AAA member discounts, some as high as 50 percent off, on back-to-school shopping needs (note that the AAA online discount only applies when buying through or the AAA app):


Kids’ clothing and shoes:

Gap online (all sizes)

Macy’s online (all sizes; in-store pickup available)

Payless Shoe Stores (all sizes)

Shopping through or through the free AAA app allows members to earn “WOW” points that they can use on future purchases. Every dollar spent at AAA Discounts & Rewards earns at least one AAA WOWPoint (some offers give shoppers up to 20 WOWPoints for each dollar spent). For every 100 AAA WOWPoints shoppers earn, they get a $1 discount on a future purchase.
