    Check for deals…. see what places offer AAA discounts, Entertainment Book discounts, and restaurant eClub e-mails for food discounts.

    I always show my AAA card when visiting Universal/Islands of Adventure in Orlando. I can save 10% of dine in places & merchandise store. AAA discount does not apply to outdoor carts, but all indoor places there. Every bit saved helps. Be aware of discounts through the auto club or if traveling to major city invest in an Entertainment Book.
