Repost @itsbigben : "Just a few weeks ago, I was on my way home from a photo shoot in Pemberton when my car lost all power in the middle of the freeway. All I had to do was go into my wallet, pull out my @bcaarewards Membership Card, call the number on the back, and they handled the rest. A local tow truck met me where I was broken down, towed me into town and got me back up and running so I could get back to the office. Since my Plus Membership covers up to 160km of towing, I didn’t have to pay anything. I simply called the number, got towed into town, the car got fixed, and I was back on the road that day. "
Repost @fraichenutrition : "When you have kids (and especially a kid like Max ) you realize that ANYTHING can happen in an instant. From leaving the bathtub faucet running to forgetting you left rice on the stove to cook (ahem, ok the last one wasn’t Max… unless you count the fact that I was sleep-deprived because of him! ), you never know when an accident will happen. We just renewed our house insurance so it was top of mind for me this week – and speaking of insurance, @BCAARewards offers discounts up to 20% off on their award-winning house insurance – give them a shout to get a quote!"

Repost @katusha_co : "Last fall we finally upgraded our family vehicle to this beauty. We shopped around for the right car insurance but ultimately nothing could beat @BCAARewards Since we are Members we got to save an extra 10%. At BCAA you can purchase ICBC basic coverage and then choose your optional insurance and save. We love that with their optional insurance we get one accident forgiveness, guaranteed repairs, family pet protection and more."
BC is the place to be! And we’re excited to be a part of this beautiful province and all of you who make it amazing! #exploreBC
Repost @sabrinasmelko : "I like my perks with extra perks. I recently became a @BCAARewards Member—and I didn’t know a lot about it going in. I knew about the roadside assistance and knew it would be great peace of mind on our treks along the west coast, but I knew little else of the other benefits... Benefits like 30% off at some of my fave stores and restaurants, earning CAA Dollars® on fuel, discounts on home, car and travel insurance, a free Evo Car Share Membership, and more. It’s pretty cool beans! If you’re a BC local, check out their plans!"

REPOST @alongcamelogan : "I have to admit I am such a last minute packer and now that we have Logan I can barely keep up with all the things on my travel to do list! Traveling with a toddler has definitely been a change but luckily with BCAA making sure we are covered for our vacation is simple and quick. We literally did it all online the day before we left for vacation. They provide emergency medical coverage, non-medical coverage for things like baggage insurance and more all with a 10% savings simply by being a Member."

Repost @fraichenutrition : “I’m one of those people who naturally thinks ‘things’ just won’t happen to me. But as I’ve grown older life has taught me otherwise! Like the time when my condo building burned down 1 week after I got insurance (true story ). Or even when our truck wouldn’t start last year and needed to be towed … on the day before our BCAA Membership expired (a gentle reminder of one of the many reasons we have it! ). The reality is that life DOES happen, and something as simple as a BCAA Membership has given me so much peace of mind (and saved my derrière ) over the years! They have a few Memberships to choose from and offer the Best Roadside Assistance in Canada and the US that follows YOU, not your car (so you’re covered regardless! ) and Membership starts at only $7/month. I mean, they will even bring you gas if you run out (ahem, not that I’ve done that ; ). Do any of you have a similar ‘close call’ story?”

Are you a renter who just found a sweet suite? Maybe you’ve just paid the damage deposit, and now your landlord is covered. But have you protected yourself and your belongings? A common misconception is that the landlord’s insurance will cover everything inside the home in the event of a loss—but unfortunately, it doesn’t. Find out the reasons why you (Really ) need renters insurance: https://bit.ly/2RStgcF (link in bio )
Repost @katusha_co : "The other day Sophie got mad about something and threw her bunny right on the stove which was still hot from cooking something. Thankfully we were right there but scary what could have happened… Now as parents, and I guess as humans, we try and control everything but many things in life are outside of our control. SO the best thing you can do is be COVERED when something unexpected does happen. Be it a fire or a flood. Did you know that @bcaarewards provides insurance for homeowners, condos and renters and Members can save up to 20%? To learn more visit bcaa.com/home #BCAARewards #BCAASavestheDay #ad ”
