Visit to discover our newest local partners, including family-owned Fishman’s Care Cleaners (save 15% on dry cleaning and other services), as well as Academy Hearing Centres (save up to $1,000 on hearing aids). Vehicle owners can earn 15% in reward dollars on all products and services at Lube City, while airport-parking operator Park2Go now offers RV parking and self storage at a 25% discount. And curious members save 10% on admission to Calgary’s Telus Spark.

’Tis the season for giving to loved ones—but also to those less fortunate. The past year has been difficult for Alberta: Even beyond the challenges of Covid-19, many in our province continue to experience economic hardship. That’s why AMA invites you to “Fill Our Fleet” and help make things brighter for everyone in the province. We accept monetary and nonperishable food donations year-round, and especially during the holiday season, to help Alberta’s local food banks and the nearly 90,000 people who use them each month. In 2020, AMA members and employees raised almost $240,000 and 29,000 pounds  of food. Visit to donate online and learn more about our upcoming fundraising events. Help Albertans in need this holiday season.


Your big day is coming up: the road test to earn your Class 5-GDL (or full Class 5) Alberta driver’s licence. Trouble is, the test is in mid-February and it’s been months since your driving lessons. Regain the confidence you had during those summertime sessions with an AMA winter brush-up lesson. Taught by an expert AMA instructor, the two-hour, in-vehicle lesson (member price: $179) provides tips and techniques for mastering winter roads, including best practices for braking, steering and accelerating in potentially slippery conditions. Check out to learn how to get ready for winter and refresh your skills for your road test.

Carrying your AMA membership card with you is always a good idea. The toll-free phone number to access 24/7 roadside assistance is on the back of the card. Another tip: Save that number (1-800-222-4357) to your device’s contact list, where it’ll be easily accessible and accurate. Unfortunately, misdialing the last four digits in our number may connect you with a telemarketing company, not AMA. You can also request AMA roadside assistance without a phone call—by downloading theAMA Mobile App ( and making a service request online.
