AAA in California has temporarily reduced their $20 enrollment fee for new members to $1 by enrolling here [aaa.com]
. Total enrollment for one member is $49. This is further reduced by $4.50 to $44.50 if you select the Auto-Renew option, which you can change at a later time without penalty.
You can add one other household adult member for $25 and dependants under 21 for $27 each.
While their towing benifits are not so great (7 miles), their discounts (travel, meal, entertainment) etc. easily pays for the membership several times over if used.
