Headquartered in Memphis, TN, AutoZone is one of the United States’ leaders in aftermarket automobile accessories, parts, and tools. With more than 5,000 stores, the brand has become a ubiquitous choice among die-hard do-it-yourselfers.
One huge reason that car owners choose to take the DIY route to automotive care is cost savings. Dealspotr wants to help these at-home gearheads save as much cash as possible. It is with that goal in mind that we present these easy steps to save as much as possible at AutoZone.
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.
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.
