My Favorite AMSA Benefits

Besides getting connected with some really exciting volunteering opportunities, meeting like-minded and interesting friends, and learning about what it takes to become a physician, AMSA can also offer member discounts! What a perk! I have outlined some of my favorite discounts that AMSA offers, but for the full list check out the national website at https://www.amsa.org/members/benefits/premed/.

Kaplan Test Prep

Use the stackable 10% discount on a Comprehensive MCAT Program. This is one of the biggest perks of being involved in AMSA, it will pay your dues itself! If you are wanting the live online MCAT course through Kaplan valued at $2,299, then with the 10% AMSA discount you save $229.20 making the course only $2,069.10! With AMSA dues equaling $215 over four years, the discount pays for your dues! Also this discount is STACKABLE, so if Kaplan is running a $200 discount then you can use that discount plus the one you received from AMSA! So many savings!



Do you find yourself constantly worrying that you may be missing a step when applying to medical school? Sometimes the process can be confusing, so if you think that you need extra help check out MedSchoolCoach. They will provide you with an advisor that is a physician with admissions committee experience who will walk with you through the entire process, and the best part is you save 10% with AMSA.


Worldwide Hotel & Car Rental Discount Program

Whether you are traveling for a needed break or need to book a hotel room for medical school interviews check out these great AMSA rates that will save you an average of 10-20% up to 50% of the available rates! The link will take you to a search engine where you will log in with your AMSA ID before getting to see all the savings!


Alamo and National Car Rentals

Call with your AMSA ID to Alamo or National car rental, and you will receive a huge discount on car rentals. Might be useful for those interviews! You may even want to use your free day with National!


Office Depot and Office Max

Notebooks, printers, pens you name it! Office Depot and Office Max offer 80% off preferred products to AMSA members including free next day shipping for orders over $50, so next year skip the lines in College Stations and collect your supplies through AMSA!
