AAA is selling no fee Visa gift cards again until December 31st. They has a similar offer earlier this year which expired on June 30th. This is the page where you can find the Visa gift card offer, but it is the Mid Atlantic website. There’s no limit.
The gift cards are issued by Metabank and can be loaded with $10 to $500. They come with a pin. The AAA gift card must be purchased at a AAA Retail office.
The website doesn’t mention any membership restrictions, so it looks like the offer is available to members and non-members alike. It is not a nationwide offer and you should call up your local AAA location to check if they are offering the no fee Visa gift cards and also make sure it is available for non-members.
The New York AAA website shows a $6.95 for non-members and 4.95 for members when purchasing in store.
If the no fee cards are available near you, this could be a great way of meeting a minimum spend requirement or even stacking some points/miles. Keep in mind that most likely you won’t be able to purchase very large amounts and different offices might have different limits. You might also be asked to fill out forms.
