I just joined. Good lord, where did the time go?!

You can join at 50, and I had to do it to get a rental car discount, which more than paid for the $16 annual fee.

Ok fellow goomers, what other deals are out there?

Off to the early-bird buffet!

I used to use it at movies for a senior discount... then I started looking older and the young ticket sellers don't question me anymore. It may work any other place that offers senior discounts, but wants proof. I also used it (years ago) for a discount on AOL.

I was a member by marriage years before I qualified on my own. But don't tell my wife I told you.

We belong to the AARP motor club and they've been worth every penny we've paid them in dues. I've also used the AARP card at hotels to get excellent rates.

I quit, when I realised they were a business rather than the advocacy group like they presented themsleves to be.

never joined it - I figured you can't get something for nothing and somehow on the back end it would cost more.

I also was quite depressed when that card came in the mail

It may not be true.

I'm too arrogant to admit I'm 57, so I haven't joined.

Between AARP and AAA I almost alwys get a hotel discount somewhere. Hopefull Medicare will still exist when I turn 65 so I can get their supplementary insurance.

Re; Early Bird special, there is a web site in NY called Savored. Restaurants discount (and good ones) up to 30% based on what is less than prime time. Found myself eating Sushi at a local favorite on Friday for 30% off. It is what it is

It took me a few yrs to warm up to the idea, but if you have a significant car rental or hotel expense coming up, I'd recommend it. You can join online and I had my membership # immediately to use for the car rental. Can't turn back the clock; might as well save some bucks.

As mentioned, hotel discounts, car insurance discounts, health insurance (for those on Medicare who need supplemental insurance - which is everybody), "road and tow" - which is AAA, only cheaper, life insurance.
I resisted for 9 years until I recently moved. The savings are worth it. They ARE also a powerful lobbyist group - don't kid yourself - their presence in Washington is huge.

I joined as soon as I became eligible 8 years ago and have used it frequently for hotel/car rental discounts. And as DreamLady stated - they are a powerful voice - it's always nice to have a champion.

Ditto!

And, have saved quite a few bucks on hotels (the car rental discount is good, too; but, I get a deal through work that is a little bit better, so I haven't used it that much)

Not true. Times Square was cleaned up years ago, and the hookers moved to Murray Hill. I am not sure about the 10% part.

Funny this came back up today, as my membership pkg just came. Here's one that appeals to me:

AARP members save 25% or more when buying tickets in groups of four.* Visit www.livenation.com/aarp for complete details and to see what concerts are available in your area. Have your AARP membership card number ready!

Hey you kids, down in front!
