AAA iPhone app uses GPS to direct members to nearby discounts

Mon, Jun 8, 2009


AAA Discounts is an iPhone app that lets AAA members use GPS enabled iPhones to find nearby business that offer AAA discounts.   The app is free, and is apparently pretty popular.  Tampa Bay Online reports:

Since its launching, the AAA Discounts app has been downloaded nearly 200,000 times, according to AAA spokeswoman Heather Hunter, and it’s one of the top free downloads in the iPhone’s Lifestyle apps category. It also works with the iPod touch in Wi-Fi locations. Anyone can download it, though only members can take advantage of the discounts.

Some of the features advertised by the app include:

– Sorts the discounts list by name, distance, or business category

– Provides route and narrative directions

– Provides ability to join AAA or to initiate roadside assistance.

AAA Discounts isn’t exactly the most exciting app around, but if you’re already an AAA member, it’s definitely worth downloading.
