Join AutoZone Rewards
What AutoZone Rewards Is
Like most automotive parts retailers, AutoZone offers a credit program, called AutoZone Rewards. This free program allows the most frequent customers of the store to receive “rewards,” which are typically coupons towards merchandise at the physical store or online. Members are issued a plastic, digital, or printed membership card, which is used to earn and redeem Rewards.
How AutoZone Rewards Works
Every time an AutoZone Rewards member makes a qualifying purchase of over $20 at a brick-and-mortar location or the online web store, a “credit” is earned. Once the member has earned five credits, a $20 Reward is issued to their AutoZone Rewards account.
An AutoZone Rewards Card (whether physical or digital) must be presented to redeem the Reward; the card is valid on all items at AutoZone, excluding gift cards. This requirement ensures that the Rewards are being used by the actual member. For more information on the program, check the FAQ page.
There are some items at AutoZone that do not count towards your five purchases and some fees/taxes that are not applicable towards the $20 minimum. These items include gift card purchases, commercial account purchases, and items purchased with a gift card; the costs that do not count towards the minimum include loaner battery deposits, environmental fees, Loan-a-Tool deposits, federal taxes, state taxes, local taxes, shipping charges, and core deposits.

Shop with Discounted Gift Cards From Raise.com
What Raise.com Is
Raise.com is an innovative website which facilitates the buying and selling of used, unwanted gift cards and e-gift cards. Consumers with gift cards they do not want can make cash by selling them, and buyers purchase the gift cards for a percentage under the total value. While that may mean a discount of only a few dollars on low-value gift cards, purchasing in bulk or high-value gift cards can yield significant savings. Best of all, the cards never expire.
AutoZone has several gift cards listed on Raise.com, with discounts as deep as 22%. That means for $100 at the store, you only pay $78!
How Raise.com Works
When visiting the Raise.com home page, simply find the search bar and enter in the store for which you are seeking. The site organizes the results in a convenient list that makes it easy to compare value, discount percentage, and final price. Additionally, the list displays the gift card type – in the case of AutoZone, they are typically physical gift cards.
A great way to save even more money at Raise.com is the Refer-a-Friend program. The program is very simple; every time a friend signs up on the site, you earn an instant $5 in Raise Rewards. Once their first purchase has been made on the site, you receive another $5 Raise Reward!
