How to Pay for Your CAA Membership in One Weekend

With September right around the corner, you’re probably knee-deep in back-to-school shopping and less than enthusiastic students. Though dragging your kids around the mall for new clothes, shoes and school supplies might not be your idea of a relaxing weekend, with a CAA membership it can at least be a rewarding one. In the first of our “How to pay for your Membership in one Weekend” series, we’ll show you how one back-to-school weekend with the kids (and your CAA membership card) can pay for an entire year of Life-side Assistance.


Until September 3rd, CAA Members save $15 on purchases of $75 or more at the GAP Factory Store and $100 or more at the Banana Republic Factory Store. With fashionable styles for both kids and adults at already-reduced outlet pricing, refreshing their fall wardrobe at either retailer will get you some serious bang for your buck. Altogether, a combined purchase of $175 will wind up costing CAA Members just $145 – a savings of $30! Can’t shop before September 3rd? Don’t worry! CAA Members can save 10% on all purchases including sale merchandise year-round.

Once your little-ones (and not-so-little-ones) have their fall fashions settled, it’ll be time to fit them with some new shoes for the season. Good news – at Payless ShoeSource, CAA Members save 10% on regular priced merchandise! Whether they need runners, boots or formal footwear, your discount will easily save you $10 or more on any purchase over $100; which isn’t difficult to do with more than one kid in tow.

Last but not least, stop off at LensCrafters to save a whopping 30% on a new pair of fashionable eyeglasses! An annual optometrist visit might reveal slight variations in the strength of your vision, so it’s important to get your students’ prescriptions up-to-date to ensure their reading and focus isn’t affected. Your CAA membership card will also save you 15% on lenses and frames purchased individually, so whether you’re looking to update your current style or simply replace the lenses inside them, CAA can easily save Members $45 on a $150 set of complete eyewear.

With back-to-school shopping out of the way, yourexhausted and undoubtedly hungry soon-to-be students will be clamoring for some eats. Good news yet again – East Side Mario’s offers a 10% discount to all cardholding CAA Members and ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT soup or salad and garlic homeloaf! Simply flash your CAA card to take an effortless, but well-earned, $5 off a final bill of $50. Altogether, you and your family saved $90 thanks to your CAA membership, and we’re still on day one!


With your back-to-school clothes shopping out of the way, it’s time to throw on your bathing suits and enjoy what’s left of the summer heat! With fall right around the corner, Wild Water Kingdom will soon be closing down for the season. But with a CAA membership, a family of four can save $30 on admission and earn CAA Dollars® when you pre-purchase your tickets through CAA Tickets Online.


With roughly $90 in savings for Saturday and $30 for Sunday, your CAA membership has the potential to save you hundreds of dollars before school begins – that’s enough for a basic membership plus an Associate! If you are still on the fence about joining, there’s never been a more perfect time to be a Member. With these and many more daily savings opportunities arriving regularly, your CAA membership can really pay for itself year after year.
