I grew up in a small town and back then winters were brutal. We walked to school in snow up to our hips, uphill both ways…..ok I’m exaggerating but the snowfall was greater than it is today and my father commuted over an hour to Toronto for work each day.
My Dad is a brilliant man (I may even type that if I knew he didn’t read my blog), he’s stereotypically British in many ways with his stiff upper lip and happens to be super frustrating to buy Christmas gifts for.
My Mum used to lament about this, wracking her brain for gift ideas for Dad. I have visions of countless golf shirts, books, golf ball packs and bottles of very fine scotch. But there was one gift that Mum always bought for Dad, one gift that she knew he’d appreciate and the one year she didn’t buy it he was shocked and quite vocal about his dismay.
Every year but one my Mum bought my father a CAA gift membership. It is the only gift that gave my Dad peace of mind with his travels.
Right now if you purchase a CAA gift membership before January 31, 2013 they will waive the $12.00 enrollment fee and you will receive 2 FREE Trunk Organizers.
Beginning at just $67 this is an amazing gift which is appropriate for many people on your Holiday shopping list and it protects the recipient all year long.
CAA membership doesn’t just cover you for Roadside Assistance, it also gives you:
- Coverage in ANY car, including rentals
- 24/7 Roadside Assistance across North America
- Save up to 30% on shopping, entertainment, attractions & more
- Earn up to 20% in CAA Dollars® at participating partners. Redeem your CAA Dollars towards your next dream vacation, travel merchandise, membership renewal or even a gift membership
- Discounts on CAA Auto & Home Insurance
As a CAA member myself I can assure you this gift is worth every penny, from travel to tows (2 in the last week…but that’s another story) we’ve had the pleasure of benefitting from many membership advantages. My Mum would advise you to stop thinking, head over to CAA and take advantage of this offer.
Thanks for sharing about the CAA gift membership! Waiving the $12 enrollment fee & receiving 2 free trunk organizers makes this important purchase even sweeter. Jenna
This is such a great gift idea! I know a couple people that this would make a perfect gift for :)
