We Got $100 Towards Our December Disney Cruise!
Previously, I had written about AAA's Explore More Rewards--click here to read the post. The idea is that as you book qualifying travel with AAA and make referrals who book qualifying AAA travel you can earn points. When the points reach 10,000 clients can redeem the points for a $100 voucher. The voucher can be used for cash or put towards your next qualifying AAA travel.
We have reached the point limit for $100 vouchers twice! Once was last spring, as it took a while for the points to catch up with us, since the program didn't start until mid-2012.
This time, we actually surpassed the 10,000 point mark and hit over 17,000 points. I "cashed out" 10,000 points for a $100 voucher that our travel agent is applying towards our December Disney cruise. And, we have over 7,000 reward points left over. . . so we'll hit the 10,000 mark again after our cruise!
AAA's Explore More Rewards cannot be found on AAA's website. Clients can learn about it through their AAA travel agent. I also learned that the points are good for 3-years. A third party handles the rewards program for AAA so communication with that company can be frustrating. It took 2 phone calls and several e-mails to get our point total straightened out and redeem the points for the voucher, but it was $100! I know some folks wouldn't got to the trouble.
As my travel agent puts it, she is hesitant to tell people about it as not everyone will benefit and the program can be a hassle. But, she knows for us, AAA Explore More Rewards will pay off!
If you and your family either are frequent adventurers or considering becoming frequent adventurers, find a reward program that works for you. Typically, loyalty pays.
