WARNING - Got my "FREE" AARP card in the mail today -- they want $16 -- I called the number and said that i had signed up for the FREE card BUT that the letter said that I needed to pay $16 -- they told me that they were NOT doing the FREE card any longer ... talk about Bait and Switch at its finest... NOW I WILL BE SPAMMED FOR LIFE..


I didn't see this posted, so just FYI - these are the prices on their website right now.

5 years for $44.10 ($8.82/yr)
3 years for $30.10 ($10.04/yr)
1 year for $11.20 ($11.20/yr)

Did not see that. I saw this posted on their normal sign-up page...

5 Years for $63.00 (12.60/yr)
3 Years for $43.00 (14.33/yr)
1 Year for $16.00 (16.00/yr)

...and I didn't see anything stating that it will kick into one of these price options after the free membership ends in a year. After all, no credit card was necessary to sign up so I don't see yet how that would be possible unless you need to "activate" your card using a credit card, or something like that.

It definitely is based on age, not employed or retired.

Joining AARP will generate a HUGE amount of paper junk mail.
First thing I do is call in and block that.
I found calling in is needed as opposed to trying to do this on website, etc.
Here are the options they provide, quoted from their Privacy Policy:
"
If you do not want us to share your information with providers of AARP member products or services, you can opt out by contacting us as specified below. You should then stop receiving AARP service provider mailings in about 12 weeks. (Note: If you request services or information from an AARP service provider directly, we may still need to confirm to the provider that you are an eligible AARP member).

If you do not want us to share your personal information with nonprofit organizations, you can opt out by contacting us as specified below.
If you wish to stop receiving all communications from AARP, including information about AARP activities, such as legislative events and educational programs, or about the activities of other AARP affiliates such as AARP Foundation, you can also opt out by contacting as specified below.

Email us at AARPmember@aarp.org, or click here [aarp.org]. [ http://www.aarp.org/about-aarp/aa...t-out.html ]

Call us at 1-888-OUR-AARP (1-888-687-2277)

I wonder...........What if the Husband is 58 and the Wife is 40 or something. She can have an AARP card?
When signing up, it says...
"Add Spouse/Partner to membership at no cost - regardless of their age"

Did anyone get the following message when signing up?

Your data has already been received and is being processed. If you need to make changes to the data you provided please call 1-866-494-4015. Note - it may take 1-2 weeks for your data to be processed. You may wish to wait until you receive your membership kit before calling AARP.
I wonder if this is the same offer as they had in November 2011 then.

It just takes a little comparison shopping to beat auto or life insurance aarp 'discount'. Most hotel chains offer a senior discount anyway, or just book the aarp rate and show your d/l at chk in works, if they even ask. I already get mailings from them (with cards inside to use).

We have two 2000 Ford Focuses and we pay $372.40 total a year for both cars combined with Geico and I don't believe we have the bare bones all the way around, just on some parts. Does state of residency affect premiums? Maybe that is why yours is so high microkelvin...? We are in NYS.
Quote from microkelvin View Post :
must be my state then. are you still talking about geico rate? i know there are some crazy rates out there for statefarm or allstate but that's after loyalty discounts (after 15+ years) and multi-family member discount.

Yep, with geico. Been with them 2 years.

Oh Yeah, state of residency definitely matters. I'm just glad I don't live in Jersey. You need another job just to pay taxes & insurance in that state.

My son has had USAA insurance ever since he was in the Marine Corp. His insurance is so low I'm not even going to print it here but it's so low that he'll never ever let it lapse. He'll never shop around. You have to be military to get it and bank with them too but it's so worth it. Any one here military it's worth it to look into USAA.

then you should use fake name for your car insurance, healthcare and life insurance if you want to take advantage of their discounts. unless you want free monthly magazines from them. last time i looked, most of them were pushing for obama agendas on health reform.
You mad, bro?

You're one of the lucky few if you don't meet their conditions, grats!
(23,730,000 Unemployed and Underemployed Americans. Multiplied by the average household unit of 3.5ish you have roughly 83,055,000 americans impacted. Did they all sign up?)
