    I don't belong to AARP anymore. The articles on things that didn't interest me and offers for cruises and other things I couldn't afford put me off. Is there a picture of a Studebaker?

        Never joined...like a lot of so-called beneficial advocates...they seem to me to be more about advocating for the benefit of their top tier lobby lizards than the elderly. I've found that in all cases (thus far) I've been treated to the same (age-related) "discount" courtesy extended to AARP members without having the membership.

          AARP does not have anyone's best interest in mind except their own. Lamar

              An AARP membership provides a monthly magazine. In my opinion the quality of the magazine has improved considerably and has some good articles. It provides a spin on many issues regarding senior citizens and I don't think it exhibits a political bias to extent it did in the past. It was a source for auto and domicile insurance policies that are competitive. I do not know if Alice Cooper belongs!

                It’s funny but the AARP topic came up this morning at the Mc Donald’s daily oldies breakfast. One of the guys (94years old) brought up the fact that AARP never once mentioned our government was going to tax social security back in the 1980s or 90s. He lost respect for them then and now that I heard that, I to have lost that respect.

                  I've been an AARP member for 27 years. Although politically they unfortunately list heavily to the port side, membership is the requirement for the really good medicare insurance supplement. The hotel, car rental, etc discounts pay for the annual membership. The magazine burns slow enough for fireplace starter fuel and the back page always has someone older than me who's having a birthday. What's not to like?

                      It's 50 now. My wife turns 50 tomorrow and they are flooding her with mail. I didn't join 3 years ago when I turned AARP age.

                      We still have kids in school. I'm not ready to join. Maybe when I'm retired.

                      Honestly don't see the benefit.

                        4, 5, and 6 pretty well say how I feel about it. My brother joined to get a cheaper insurance rate.
                        Now, what does belonging to AARP have to do with car insurance rates. That alone turns me off.

                          I've saved more on hotel and car rental discounts than the membership costs.

                            Many seem to forget what the "R" in AARP stood for. It was; retired.
                            I am friends with one of the founders. He was an insurance executive and AARP was originally founded mostly on an insurance basis. Many still use it for their Medicare supplement insurance.

                              Boy this got off topic right away! I believe this is the issue with Alice Cooper and his Avanti.
