Date:2/12/2009

Make a New Year's Resolution to focus on health by using the benefits of the world's largest member discount program

ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Over 2.6 million American jobs were lost in 2008, and many of those currently unemployed also find themselves without vital medical benefits. Many more also start the New Year in dire financial situations; forced to make difficult decisions on where to make cuts in household budgets. Unfortunately, some people may consider cuts in areas that will affect their long-term health and wellness. AAA's Show Your Card & Save(R) program can ease the present financial difficulties with savings on products and services that are crucial to health, including prescription medications, eyeglasses and fitness equipment.

AAA members can save an average of 24 percent on all prescriptions at more than 59,000 participating pharmacies nationwide. This discount also applies to prescriptions for furry family members that can be filled at a traditional pharmacy and lifestyle drugs typically not covered by insurance. Additional savings are available for mail order prescriptions. AAA prescription savings is not insurance and savings are only available at participating pharmacies. For more information and to obtain a free Prescription Savings card visit AAA.com/prescriptions or call 1-866-AAA-SAVE (1-866-222-7283).

"Most AAA members are aware of the savings their AAA membership offers on travel services, but during these difficult economic times AAA membership is a necessity for many families grappling with some very difficult financial decisions," said Tom Wilt, managing director of AAA Partnership Programs. "There is nothing more important than your family's health and well-being and these savings will stretch your household budget."

Many other Show Your Card & Save partners offer products to improve your health. AAA members who wear eyeglasses can often pay for the cost of AAA membership with the savings offered at LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, Sears Optical, and Target Optical. Your AAA membership card will save 20 percent at Reebok and Rockport outlets which offer a full line of fitness gear; fitness and outdoor equipment can be found at AAA.com/Target.com with a ten percent discount; and get a 15 percent discount on GNC online orders placed through www.AAA.com/shopnow.
