Time to get those eyes checked and maybe a cool new pair of lenses while you’re at it! AAA members save 50% on lenses with frame purchase, 30% on eye exams and 30% on non-prescription sunglasses.
Financial health is important too, especially as scams become more and more sophisticated. It’s a good thing that AAA members receive complimentary ID theft protection with membership!
