Cost of living pressures continue to hit Australian households, with prices climbing at the fastest annual pace since 2001 according to the Australia Bureau of Statistics. It’s led to many people looking for new ways to save money – or existing opportunities they might not be exploiting.
Thousands of South Aussies might not be aware that their RAA membership card could be helping them save money at various shops and experiences across the State.
RAA Senior Manager Membership Theresa Paris said we have a range of discounts and offers with more than 40 partner organisations as part of our member benefits program.
“As the state’s largest member organisation, looking for ways to give back to our members and repay them for their loyalty is important to us.
“An RAA membership card can be used to redeem a whole host of discounts – the most popular of these being on fuel, movie tickets and health insurance.”
Theresa also said these potential savings were currently untapped for a lot of our member base.
“Our data shows that 34% of RAA members – around 270,000 people – are taking advantage of our member benefits, meaning more than 500,000 South Aussies still have the opportunity.
“Those members who use the program are saving an average of $96 per year.”
Theresa said her team aims to offer savings opportunities that are relevant to families and individuals of all ages.
“So there is a big chance you could be saving at places where you already spend money.
“These include partners such as Star Discount Chemist, OPSM, My Budget, Uniti Internet, Crows or Power merchandise shops and Bounce.”
“We also offer discounts on a range of eGift cards with providers such as Apple, BCF and Big W.”
