Interestingly, AARP was started by a woman who was looking for fair, affordable health insurance for retired teachers.
I always thought that once you reached age 65, you were eligible for AARP membership, but I’ve been receiving offers to join for several years now. Maybe it’s because people are retiring earlier? Or maybe AARP, like the Christmas retailers, just wants to get a huge early jump into the money-grab game? It could happen.
I haven’t read the accompanying brochure completely yet, but I plan to compare AARP’s goodies to that of AAA, to which the Thriller and I also belong. We shall see if I send them another $16 next November. Truth be told, what really sealed the deal for my joining this time was the offer of the cute little lunch bag.
Anyone else an AARP member? What can you tell me? What have they done for you lately?
