AMA News: Summer 2020

By AMA Staff

ON-SITE TIRE SWAP
AMA has always been committed to helping you and your vehicle. That pledge is even stronger with our new mobile tire swap program. Plus and Premier members can now book an appointment (online at ama.ab.ca/TireChange, or by calling roadside assistance) for an AMA technician to come to them and make the change from winter to three-season tires, and vice-versa. Just park your vehicle on a level surface with adequate space on all sides—and have your tires accessible and mounted on rims—to ensure a safe, fast, no-fuss switch. After, you can even get a free battery check. The service costs $99.99 for Premier members or $109.99 for Plus members, with bookings available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., every day of the year in Calgary, Edmonton, Sherwood Park and St. Albert. Basic members can upgrade their membership to immediately take advantage of this convenient offering.

NEWLYWED KNOW-HOW
Planning to tie the knot? We can help get you set up for your life together. Book an AMA Registries appointment at one of our centres to take care of wedding paperwork, then contact an AMA Insurance advisor to protect yourselves for the future.

Name change: If you choose to change your name, AMA can help update your driver’s licence, vehicle registration, Alberta Health Care, AMA Insurance documents and membership card.

Insurance: Determine if it makes sense to add one another to any existing auto or home insurance policies, figure out if you need to enhance your contents coverage, and consider life insurance for ongoing peace of mind.

Marriage certificate: Proves you’re legally married. Apply for it after your wedding has taken place.

Marriage licence: Valid in Alberta for 90 days from its date of issue, it certifies you’re legally allowed to wed. Signed at your wedding ceremony and submitted to the province by your officiant.

THE 5% RULE
Prepaid cards from AMARewards partners are handy for everyday purchases and gifts. They also give you 5% of the purchase price in reward dollars. AMA centres now stock $50 cards for The Source—where members already save up to 20% in-store. The home tech retailer joins our existing lineup of prepaid cards—from the likes of Sobeys/Safeway, Esso, Cineplex, Indigo and Paris Jewellers. Put your reward dollars toward your AMA membership, insurance… or more prepaid cards!

PLAY IT BY EAR
May is Better Hearing Month—the perfect time to get your ears checked and learn about hearing tech. Many of today’s hearing aids are custom-fit to your ears and use rechargeable batteries. Some are also Bluetooth compatible, meaning they can sync with devices like your TV or computer for a seamless listening experience, while apps allow you to adjust hearing aid settings using your smartphone or tablet. AMA members save up to 15% on hearing aids and everyday listening products at Connect Hearing—and save 20% on Select level hearing technology until September 30. Visit AMARewards.ca for more information.
