    AA membership inc £75 of Fuel 3rd Jul 15 at 4:22 PM
    Trying to sort out breakdown cover - RAC renewal is £213 - online for new RAC customers its 139. (so much again for loyalty).

    Just seen an AA cover for £160 but including £75 of free fuel via an AA Miles More Prepaid MasterCard.

    Anyone used this option and how does it work?. I don't want to end up getting some sort of credit card that I end up paying for, , but in the face of it, it looks like an OK deal for me.

    Thanks
    Annie

    This is "norm" nowadays with AA and RAC.

    Take the AA offer and when comes to renewal the RAC will beat it by a mile with a new customer deal. Take that and in a year the AA will beat it again treating you as a new customer.............the recovery merry - go - round.

    Completely silly to have only new customer deals but these days it's the same with insurance and utility bills. You have to hunt around for the best deal.

    What's really annoying is the letter they send with the renewal saying for being a loyal customer I am now a silver member with all these additional things (which are also covered by my car insurance so I dont need them) thrown in for free..... and at a knock down price

    I got that too at renewal time. But instead of £145, they wanted to charge me in the region of £250 for a "silver" membership. Spoke to them on the phone and haggled it down to £130 but it was still more than I really needed. I should have joined RAC as a new customer because it was £15 cheaper without the haggling.
