Deal of the week: Donate used luggage and get a rebate

March 23, 2011

AAA, Goodwill offer "Luggage Trade-In/Trade-Up" program

What's the deal? Donate your gently used luggage to Goodwill Industries retail stores and receive a discount voucher good for the purchase of new luggage from local AAA Mid-Atlantic stores.

What are the savings? For every piece of gently used luggage dropped off at one of Goodwill's donation centers by April 16, donors will receive a discount voucher good for 40 percent off a piece of Antler Luggage or $25 off a luggage purchase of $50 or more. Coupons are valid through April 30.

What's the catch? This isn't really a catch, but organizers encourage filling the used luggage with unwanted clothing, shoes or household items before donating.

"Now is the perfect time to get a jump start on spring cleaning by donating gently used luggage and clothing items, while planning ahead for summer travel with the purchase of new luggage at discounted prices," said Ragina C. Averella, spokeswoman for AAA Mid-Atlantic.

Goodwill Industries of the Chesapeake operates 24 retail stores in Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Cecil, Harford, and Howard counties, as well as the Eastern Shore and Baltimore City.
