AAA Complaint - AAA - Stranded - Single Female - Bad Area - Cell Phone Dying - Told To Shut Up
PORTLAND, OREGON -- I was an AAA member of good standing and was left stranded by the side of the road while traveling in Oregon. Apparently AAA Oregon was unable to locate my membership information from Texas. I repeatedly told them my cell phone was low on battery and beeping. It took about 20 minutes for my phone to die and the whole time they were unable to verify my membership (AAA PlusRV paid 3 months ago) At one point I was told to calm down and shut up! When I got home to TX I immediately lodged a complaint and got more runaround. Eventually I was told that AAA Oregon was not accepting responsibility and that I didn't inform them my phone was dying. Tis a load of lying bull, don't they record those calls? Otherwise why would I be so upset that they would tell me to "shut up"?
A person from TX membership told me that there are several complaints regarding aaa Oregon and Washington denying members service and nothing could be done, however she did offer me 2 free movie tickets or $10 gift cert to target to "make it up to me" Naturally I was insulted as my membership was $82 a year and this is the first time I'd attempted to use it since moving to TX 2 years ago.
Bottom line- AAA has competitors use them!
