[Canadian Tire] 30% off Canadian Tire Gold Roadside Assistance $70 Primary or $119 with Secondary

Gold Plan is 30% off for Black Friday Nov 28 to Dec 1, 2019. Looks like 30% off may be the norm unfortunately.

So obviously not as good as the 50% off during previous Black Fridays.

$70 Primary or $119 with Secondary

More info on the plans here: link

EDIT: added pics of the packaging and the back of the activation card stating that activation is required within one year from date of card purchase.

Thread Summary
Copying this thread summary to note the differences between CAA and Canadian Tire, other than price, which is totally dependent on your choice of product and current specials.

1. CAA covers the MEMBER in any car. (edit to add that I think NEO has a family plan, but unsure of the details) Cnd Tire covers EITHER the member OR the car, depending on what you choose at set up. This cannot be changed for the year, as far as I know.

2. CAA will tow you anywhere. Cnd Tire will tow you anywhere BUT a tow to their shop will not count as one of your service calls. if you regularly use them for service then that's a plus. One thing to note is that they will not tow from a Cnd Tire shop to another if you decide the cost of repair is too high. Technically CAA doesn't tow from one garage to another either, but it has been done.

3. For both - Any call out is a service call, not just tows. So a door unlock, battery boost, etc. all use up a service call. If you need a boost and it doesn't work so they have to tow you, that's one service call.

4. Some CAA memberships include replacement keys, travel insurance, etc. No clue on Cnd Tire.

5. If you live in the south Central Ontario region, both of them contract out to tow companies, so your service experience will largely be based on the tow companies in your area. Some CAA clubs (Niagara for sure) may have their own fleets.

6. If you are a Canadian Tire World Elite mastercard holder, you get a FREE gold membership. Not sure if you're offered the vehicle or member option. Important to note that you can't add on any family members to that plan, even at a cost and even if they have supplemental cards. Only the primary card holder gets the free membership and it's stand alone.

7. CAA pricing and specials available vary by each club, so your location may not offer what the OP posted. Cnd Tire specials are national.

PSA: if you don't already know you can get this free with a Triangle WE Mastercard if you qualify for it (Minimum $80k personal or $150k household income), otherwise good deal!

personal experience.
last time I called CT Roadside to get a jump start, I waited 2+ hours for tow truck to come by.
They source out local towing companies and CT Roadside customers are at lowest of their priorities.
I guess it's better than nothing.

I was just going to ask if this was the same coverage.

Thanks

Could've sworn it was $59.99

Ehn, still better than CAA. Rather the car get covered than individual drivers.

This. It's worth to get the CC for this alone.

EVERY roadside assistance program does this, none have their own tow truck fleet. Towing companies and owner/operators have contracts with several programs concurrently. Plus, they all provide direct-to-customer service. There are plenty of stories of 2+ hour waits for [insert provider name here].
