Questions and answers on the AAA GoodRX program.

The AAA GoodRx disount Program
In 2019 the American Automobile Association (AAA) partnered with GoodRx to provide AAA's 59 million members exclusive access to save up to 85% when filling their prescriptions.
This newer program is a great way to provide AAA members great savings through their discount rewards program. Any current or new member just needs to go to the AAA website and sign up by entering their membership number. There is no additional cost, it's free to use, plus members can search for the latest coupons which work at virtually every US pharmacy. This includes pet medications as well.
Our review of the GoodRx exclusive prescription savings for AAA members.
We are always open to ways to help people save on their medications and AAA's partnering with GoodRx does this at no added cost. Additionally It appears the savings you can receive on your medications are 5% to 10% higher than with a non AAA member GoodRx discount card. This means you do get additional benefits that you currently do not receive if you're using the regular GoodRx card. But since the card is free for AAA active members they can ditch the regular GoodRx card, if they are using it, and get the AAA GoodRx card to save more. We also like that you can get a physical AAA GoodRx discount card if you desire to obtain one.
"The AAA prescription savings review showed us that the card is a great benefit to AAA members provided by GoodRx."
Another benefit is you can also use the discount card and coupons for pets, but there is a catch. The card is mainly for FDA approved drugs not for compounded or pet-only medications, such as flea and tick treatments. However having access to pet medications through the savings program is added value to AAA members.
With access to over 70,000 pharmacy locations across the USA, you should find no issues finding a pharmacy that will take the AAA GoodRx card and coupons. But the great news is that if you do have problems at the pharmacy there is a number to call (1-855-470-9649) to get help. Now if there is an issue where you end up paying more for medications at a Walgreens with the card then without, GoodRx has a price matching program, but for Walgreens pharmacies only.
We think this is a great add on available to active AAA members and it should be taken advantage of. In fact you could save more using the card then using your health insurance company. Give it a try and see what you think.
