AMA Benefits & Discounts

I just renewed my American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) membership online.  If, like me, you're a member who forgets to use the available benefits (in part 'cuz you simply can't remember them), I've cut 'n' pasted the list from AMA's site.  You may want to bookmark this post and check it prior to ordering those new farkles or reserving lodging for that planned tour. Note that I've deleted certain discount codes to prevent them being used by non-members; check the members-only section of AMA's website to obtain the codes.

Bank of America Visa 3% rebate program
Every time you use your AMA Visa card at a qualified motorcycle retailer, the transaction is rung up at full price, but you get a 3% rebate on your credit card bill. Apply online or call (800) 523-7666 and mention code (deleted). The 3% AMA Credit Rebate applies to purchases up to $7,500 made at retailers assigned merchant category code 5571. Check with your dealer to determine their category code.
Discounts on insurance from Nationwide
AMA members receive a discount of up to 10% on motorcycle coverage from Nationwide insurance. Coverage is available for motorcycles, ATVs, trikes, scooters and more. Also, encourage your non-member friends to get a quote from Nationwide. If they buy a policy, Nationwide will pay for their AMA membership. See your local Nationwide agent for details.
