I mean the internet has kind of taken over triptiks and all those paper tourbooks and maps. The magazine ain't so great. And auto insurance policies add towing/help labor..etc for a buck or 2, and I haven't found their auto insurance to be competitive. The AAA decal may have some reflective properties that prevents an accident though.
I'm old enough to remember the value of this in the days of yore, but today? Am I missing something here?
I certainly can't change a tire on my full-size E150 van, and I'm pretty sure my wife can't change one either.
Around my area we get a AAA badged truck, and someone I don't worry about harming my wife as most of the time I am not with her. Or, I could depend on someone sent from Cletus Towing and Tackle Shop. No thanks!
To your point, I don't care about much anything else other than a breakdown, flat tire, etc.
When DDs were at home, they also were covered by AAA. One protects what is precious.

I have AAA, Amazon Prime, nytimes digital. Once or twice a year I sign up for a month of kindle unlimited and pig out on ebooks.
Prime saves me money with its discounts and free loans of ebooks, also now that I am rarely in grocery stores it is the best source of good produce. Big supermarkets just don't compare. I use both prime whole foods and peapod, as whole foods doesn't have a lot of things I buy like coca cola.
