I was told if you are a costco or AAA member you can get discounted transponders with them. Do you guys know if these are new or used? If used are they reliable? It just makes me wonder how long they would last if they have been in use already. Do you also have to return them once you finish using them? Also, I have yet to get my HOV stickers I kept putting it off and just forgot about them. Didn't think I'd need them until I recalled someone telling me i can run FasTrak at +3 /w the hov stickers . Am I missing out on other goodies? I just recently found the free quick charge stations and wow they have been a blessing. Also, just ordered my charepoint card... didn't know some of the free quick chargers used a CP card! I'm a AAA member. Can I drop my HOV application with them or MUST it be mailed?
