Did you know you can get an AARP Membership under 50 years old?

Did you know you can get an AARP Membership under 50 years old?


Most people think that you have to be 50 years old to receive the benefits of AARP (American Association of Retired Persons). Surprisingly, anyone at any age can join and I’ve tested this out with the physical card that was sent to me. And yes, I’m just a little over quarter of a century old.

The following, are some of the reasons to get an AARP membership:

               Discounts on Travel: Car Rentals, Hotels, Flights

               Discounts on Restaurants: Outback, Rainforest CafĂ©(There’s one in Orlando, FL!)

               Educational Magazines sent to your home

               Insurance Benefits (This one really applies to 50 and older due to age restricted contracts)

The only reason I ever found out that AARP could even be offered to me at such a young age was from reading this forbes article, https://www.forbes.com/sites/rogerma/2017/08/31/why-i-joined-aarp-at-age-35/?sh=7f062e1170f5. Without seeing this, I would have never known I could apply for a membership.

The following are some other articles I found from young people jumping on the bandwagon:

1. https://grow.acorns.com/heres-how-much-i-saved-by-joining-the-aarp-in-my-20s/

2. https://www.retailmenot.com/blog/why-joining-the-aarp-under-age-50-is-smart.html

3. https://wallethacks.com/is-aarp-worth-it/

4. https://www.aarp.org/membership/faqs/ (You can read it in their faq!)

5. https://hubpages.com/money/AARPMembership (Hey! It's Me!)

How much is it? $12 for your first year. Normally $16/year.

               1 Year $12           3 Years $43         5 Years $63

The card has already paid for itself between financial advice and restaurant discounts. A free second household membership is included. I’ve been able to use the AARP Membership at the following places:

1.      Outback Steakhouse – 10% off on food and nonalcoholic beverages

2.      Exxon Mobil – Every 100 points earns equivalent of $1 in savings on eligible purchases

3.      AARP The Magazine – gets sent directly to my home so I can physically flip through it

Even though people under 50 can use some of the benefits offered under the AARP membership, not all of them can be used. Insurance products and advisors are reserved specifically for the older generation.

As much as I’d like to compete with Google’s algorithms, I left this article fairly short and to the point. We have more information to cover!
