Remember to use your AAA card and your membership can pay for itself. When you travel, get up to 20 percent off the lowest rates at 4,000 Best Westerns around the world and a minimum 5 percent discount at more than 2,800 Marriott hotels. Save money at Hyatt, Hampton Inn, and Starwood properties and at boutique lodgings such as San Francisco's funky new Good Hotel, where the decor—lamps made from water bottles, a table constructed of old skateboards—features reclaimed materials. Show your AAA card and reclaim something for your wallet, too.
