Is AARP Worth It? - Day Dreamer - 04-30-2019

Now that I am in my 50s I get AARP letters weekly. Is a membership worth it for you guys already out there? What type of benefits are you seeing?

My dad died over 10 years ago and still gets junk mail from them at my home about every week.

I mark them deceased, send them back and hope they have to pay return postage on every one.

I wouldn't join if you paid me....

We joined early on, found there to be limited benefits but a deluge of mail and solicitations, so dropped our membership and haven’t missed it.

Same for me. I felt like I was paying someone to put me on a giant mailing list. Dropped membership more then a decade ago, don't miss it.

When still in a S&B I received enough junk mail and had no need of anything AARP, AAA auto club or any other distraction that would ring my phone or clog my mailbox looking for money. For senior info and most health related topics go on-line for those specific answers. Your going to end up there eventually anyway.

just my 2¢

Besides some discounts like fast food places and lodging it was suggested to me for their Medicare supplemental insurance as it appears to be one of the better cheaper plans. I just toss most of the mail as it contains a lot of requests for political donations and they are an insult to me.

The AARP also supports strict gun-control measures, and is anti-2nd amendment.

I will not help finance an organization that wants to disarm us by restricting the legal ownership of legal firearms.

I joined AARP for health insurance. I stopped the junk mail with a phone call to AARP

Nope, don't and won't.

Thanks everybody that is what I suspected. Many places give senior discounts without it anyway.

AAA might be a good idea though.
