Jackson Christmas Parade - All set to go

American 1 particpated in the Jackson, Brooklyn, and Grass Lake Christmas parade this year, and we have a bunch of pictures to share. Check out pictures of the Jackson and Grass Lake parades at our Flickr gallery.

Our friends over at Home.fm took some great shots of the downtown Jackson parade, too.

Busy weekend in Jackson

Rose Parade - Follow me

Summer is, typically, a busy season for American 1. We host a bunch of summer community events – and 2010 is no different.

But this weekend is especially busy: we have both our Summer Sales Event on Friday and Saturday and the Rose Parade on Sunday.

Now that’s a crazy weekend.

At the sale, we invited dependable local dealerships to bring 200 of their best used vehicles on Friday, June 4 and Saturday, June 5 at the Sears parking lot in Jackson. Just in time to kick off your summer fun season.

The Rose Festival activities start on Saturday, but we’re proud of the Rose Parade on Sunday, June 6 starting at 1 p.m. in downtown Jackson. The parade winds its way down Greenwood Ave. and Fourth St. to Ella Sharp Park, where we kick off summer with the Party in the Park. The whole weekend is a celebration of Jackson, and a neat way to see local businesses and organizations show their creative side with all the floats.

If you’re in town this weekend, join us at both events!

MBP works for auto mechanics, too

Fixing someone’s vehicle should be as quick and easy as possible. For Jim Corcoran, owner of Auto Tech in Jackson, “quick and easy” means working with American 1’s Mechanical Breakdown Protection (MBP).

Corcoran says American 1’s MBP coverage is the best he deals with.

“We work with three or four different warranty companies, and this product is the best,” he says. “It’s the best for members and the best for us.”

The entire process, from a member bringing in their vehicle to Corcoran handing back the keys, is straightforward. Members with MBP bring in their vehicle for repairs, Corcoran runs a diagnostic system, then calls the warranty company to find out what’s covered.

“MBP covers just about everything,” he says.

Next, Corcoran faxes over the work order and, not long after that, he receives his payment.

“We’ve built a relationship with this company,” Corcoran says. “So we’re not waiting two days for payment authorization. It gets the member in and out.”

MBP even covers the little things, Corcoran says, like diagnostics and sales tax. He says it also covers twice as much as the next-best warranty for the same price.

“I get reactions like, ‘Wow, I didn’t think they’d cover that,’” he says.

And no deductible means members walk out with no out-of-pocket cost.

Since it makes everything easier, from making repairs to receiving payment, Corcoran recommends MBP to every American 1 member.
