This nonprofit federation of motor clubs offers various types of insurance programs, but the details vary from one AAA club to another. Check the website of the club for your region to see what kind of insurance discounts it may offer.

3. Wholesale clubs
If you belong to or are considering joining a wholesale club, ask about homeowners insurance discounts for members.
For example, Costco partners with Ameriprise to offer an “exclusive discount” on home insurance. The program is unavailable in a handful of states and Puerto Rico, however.
Similarly, BJ’s partners with Geico.
4. Various other organizations
If you belong to some other form of membership organization, there may be an insurer with a homeowners insurance discount for you.
Insurer Safeco reports other types of groups that may offer the membership benefit of homeowners insurance discounts include:
- Alumni associations
- Auto clubs
- Professional groups
