Canadian Tire Roadside Assistance

Hi all,

My roadside just expired and while my insurance covers collision towing, I plan to be going on a road trip in a couple of months. With this in mind, I saw the CT Roadside Gold plan is 99.99 + Tax.

Does this come on sale or has any promo codes? Can you suggest an alternative if this is not good? I am not a fan of CAA but that's just me.

Thanks

Yeah both me and my partner fall just shy of the mark. Unless I get a raise in the next couple of weeks. Even then the time would be too short to get the card, activate the raodside. So for this year, I need to shell it out.

if you're referring to the OPCF 35> the insurer will reimburse the insured upon presentation of receipts and acceptable evidence of loss, for towing and emergency service expense caused by disablement of the automobile. It is understood that the amount of insurance does not exceed the sum of $50.00 in any one occurrence and does not include the cost of parts or supplies, gasoline, oil, batteries or tires.

Get CAA. I don't know where your rod trip is going but CAA has arrangements with AAA in the US and there are more AAA affiliates than CT in the US (and I suspect in Canada too). The price is not much more.
Plus CAA has other benefits as well, not just roadside assistance.i

CT gold comes on sale about every 3 months, the wife used it once and they were very helpful, told her what was wrong and where NOT to take car!! I fixed it in about 20 mins.

Gave the free oil change token to my neighbor, because thats what good neighbors do to bad.

You guys should apply in store. I got instant approval for WE Mastercard with 60K personal income and 150K household income.

you might want to check CT coverage and benefits when a breakdown occurs more than 200 miles away from home...
i know what CAA offers in terms of emergency accommodations and situations as I am a member, but I cannot comment on CT

I know this but I can also do this with my personal savings account too, so what's the point of a credit card? I only have one because of the pinless "tap and pay" and to rent vehicles and buy online. If my debit card could do this I would use it and not have to pay in time or worry about interest rates.

NO. My BMO MasterCard is at 14.99% and I think they stiffed me, it was at 10% just 3 years ago.

FWIW, this is not accurate. CT's CC was at 16.99%, just recently it has increased to 19.99%.
