At age 47 my husband and I started receiving membership information for the American Association of Retired Person (AARP). Since I didn’t consider myself a senior, I always pitched the envelope when one came in the mail. When I finally turned 50, and because I do not turn down a bargain, I decided to open one of the AARP membership envelopes the next time one was delivered. I found the offers to be awesome and worth the membership. Here’s a sneak peek of some of the discount offers available:
- Outback Steakhouse – offers 15% on lunch and dinner every day.
- AT&T- members can save 10% on monthly charges for wireless plans.
- Tanger Outlets – gives free coupon books containing over $1,000 in savings at the outlets.
- Regal Cinemas – members get $3.00 off any popcorn and soft drink combo.
- Avis Rent-A-Car – members save up to 25% and get other exclusive benefits.
- Hilton Honors – you can save up to 10%.
- com – members save 30% on membership for a year.
- Dunkin Donuts – Get a donut with the purchase of any L or XL beverage.
- Kindle – save 50% on select Kindle E-books. Members also save 10 % on the Kindle Fire HDX7″ tablet.
If you don’t see a particular discount on the AARP site, search Google.com using keywords like senior, discounts, 50+, senior citizens, senior deals. There are many discounts to take advantage of seniors. Some offers are publicized, but others you have to ask about. My husband has no shame in asking, and I must say I’ve been surprised at how willing places are to extend their discounts without questions. So if you have a location that you frequent, there’s no harm in asking if they offer discounts. For more information on all discounts offered with the AARP membership, visit their site at www.aarp.org. E-mail us and share the discounts you and your friends find within the city!
