In Praise of AARP

AARP = American Association of Retired People

I recently joined AARP because my father's subscription/membership was expiring this month (he passed away in December 2007) and I really really like their magazine.

Membership includes the magazine a newsletter and numerous discounts


I joined AARP through Inbox Dollars.  The cost for one year was $16.00 and I will be getting $6.00 back from Inbox Dollars.

The really great thing though is that I renewed my homeowners insurance today.

Being an AARP member saved me $117.00 in premiums for the exact same coverage.  In less than 2 weeks, I've saved a lot more than the membership cost me even without the $6.00 from Inbox Dollars.

If you are over 50 and live in the USA--you don't have to be retired either--I strongly recommend checking out AARP

Isn't AARP fantastic? I have been a member now for almost 3 yrs and love all the added extras you get with it.

Wow that's amazing. Here in the Netherlands you can only get discounts on train and bus tickets - outside rush hours only - if you're over 60.
