With more than 160,000 partners across North America, many Members are already taking advantage of the great savings opportunities available through CAA. However, did you know that some of these partners also help you earn while you shop? Say ‘hello’ to CAA Dollars®. These special rewards dollars are exclusive to Members through the CAA Rewards® program and can be redeemed in-branch in a variety of ways.
To help you fully understand how this all works, we’ve put together a list of need-to-know facts below. Be sure to check them out and make the most of your Membership!
What are CAA Dollars?
CAA Dollars are earnings members get when they make a purchase with certain CAA Rewards partners. While some partners help limit your spending through an exclusive discount, others will help you earn a percentage of your purchase back – or, in some cases, both.
What is the value of a CAA Dollar?
It’s simple – 1 CAA Dollar is worth 1 Canadian Dollar. For example, if you made a purchase of $100 CAD at a partner that helps you earn 3% back, you’d earn 3 CAA Dollars.
Which partners help me earn CAA Dollars?
