If you’re a member of anything from AARP to Costco, you might be paying too much for home insurance.
Following are several examples of groups that offer homeowners insurance discounts to at least some of their members. If you don’t belong to any of these groups, you will find other ways to save in “How to Get the Best Deal on Homeowners Insurance.”
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.

This special interest group serving Americans age 50 and older offers members savings of up to 20% through its homeowners insurance program from The Hartford.
That program is unavailable in U.S. territories, but AARP members in the U.S. Virgin Islands can get discounted rates through AARP’s homeowners insurance program from Guardian General Insurance Limited.
The Association of Mature American Citizens, or AMAC, is another special interest group serving older folks. It offers members savings on homeowners insurance through a partnership with Travelers.
4. 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 Connect, powered by American Family Insurance, to offer exclusive discounts on home insurance. The program may not be available in all states, though.
Similarly, BJ’s Wholesale Club partners with Liberty Mutual.
5. 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:
