AAA Members Pay No Fees on Visa Gift Card Purchases Through December 31, 2014

This could be useful for folks currently trying to meet minimum spending requirements.

Through December 31, 2014, you can buy Visa gift cards at AAA locations without paying a fee IF you’re an AAA member.

Normally AAA sells Visa gift cards that can be loaded up to $500 for a fee of ~$7 per card.  So you’re saving ~$7 for every $500 Visa gift card you buy!

Limited Time No Fees On Visa Gift Cards At AAA
Cut Your Minimum Spending Buying Visa Gift Cards

Not only can no-fee Visa gift cards help you meet minimum spending requirements, but they’re an easy way to get miles & points!

For instance, you get 2X miles on all your purchases with the Barclaycard Arrival Plus World Elite Mastercard.  And when you use your miles for travel purchases you get 2.1% back.

So when you buy a $500 Visa gift card, you’ll get ~$11 back when you redeem your miles for your next travel purchase!

The no fee offer is only available on Visa gift cards purchased at AAA offices.

However, NOT all AAA locations are participating in this offer nor sell Visa gift cards.  So you should check with your local AAA office.

You can set a PIN to your Visa gift card to load your Bluebird card and Evolve Money account and pay bills that you normally can’t pay with a credit card.

Bottom Line

You can buy Visa gift cards at AAA locations without a fee through December 31, 2014, IF you have an AAA membership.

For this offer, Visa gift cards must be purchased at an AAA office.  You can NOT purchase them online.

Folks can buy no fee gift cards and meet minimum spending requirements.

Check with your local AAA office because NOT all AAA locations sell Visa gift cards nor are participating in this offer.

Is your AAA office offering no fee gift cards?

I went to AAA & they had the gift cards but told me my credit card would be charged a cash advance fee as this is like a cash purchase. Has anyone else had this happen?

I checked my local AAA Mid-Atlantic office (Lynchburg, VA) last time they ran this deal. My branch will not accept CC as payment–only cash. Obviously, a no-go.

$5 gift card fee not waived in AAA Carolinas region.

should said “tried loading onto Amex Serve” …

Just bought Qty 4 $500 VGCs at AAA in Atlanta. Tried loading $500 at Family Dollar onto server (where I successfully load other MetaBank VGCs) and it flagged a fraud alert. Tried using it for a regular purchase at another store same thing. I check the AAA gift card portal, and now it is reporting a $0 balance – I’m assuming that it is “locked” because of alert. Any suggestions on tracking down a solution appreciated.
