Catalina came through for me. But, that said, I haven't heard from AARP yet either.

I do this every year. For free it's worth it.

rated:
I'm paid about 2 years out, but I'll get another year since it is free.

thanks OP.

Usually this was in August. I was thinking they discontinued it...glad to see it was just  pushed back

rated:
And FYI, you don't have to be 50 to have an AARP membership. :O

And, AARP can be extremely valuable. Seriously. It saved my family $2K on flights to Europe this summer ($400/ticket on RT business/first seats).

So, what do you buy for this deal to make it a slick deal?

Insurance through AARP and The Hartford cannot be beat. I have 5 cars all insured with Hartford. High liability limits, (500K, 1M) comprehensive, towing & labor, all for about $1800 a YEAR. It would be less, except one car, a 2001 Mustang Convertable, our daughter drives, and just for her car it's about $770 for the year.

You couldn't pay me to join this organization.  It is nothing but a sham for a powerful lobbying organization for the benefit of their own for-profit insurance enterprises.  And their positions are usually in direct conflict with their public image of supposedly looking out for the well being of senior citizens.

  Is this true? Anyone younger than 50 yrs old can join AARP?

rated:
I don't remember any proof being asked for, and i think when I find my 22 year old beautiful bride, she becomes a member

rated:
No. Not true. I sent in a free registration one week before my 50th b-day and they rejected it.

Anyone 50 or over can get all the great benefits of membership in AARP  for only $16 a year. And membership includes your spouse or partner, free! Joining online is fast and secure. You become a member right away and receive your membership number online.

AARP is just an insurance company disguised as a "club".

This is wrong. If you're under 50, you can get what they call an Associate Membership. But you still get all the benefits. I did it, and used it for the $400 business class flights.

  Isn't there a minimum for associate... 45 or 40?

  I don't think so. I signed up at 35. I just used the regular online form, and put in my birthday.

  Then you might want to consider NOT opening threads with "Free AARP Membership" in the title and save your valuable insights for other, more worthy topics.

  If you look way up to the top you'll see neither who you quoted started this thread, but if you can use the benefits (which I can't) then it's a great deal. I'm going to Walgreens tomorrow to pick up my Rx and probably enough other items to qualify but nothing they offer is any good for me free or not.

rated:
I've done this deal before, but then later regretted it.
Think twice before providing your actual phone number.

rated:
Great, thanks OP. I use it frequently for hotel discounts, and it's great. When I've used it the discount is better with my AARP card than AAA -- just saying.

My point was only intended as a public service announcement.  I'm amazed at the number of people who blindly join and support this organization with no idea of what they are all about.  All those nice pictures of old people, you know...they must be good for old people, then, right?  WRONG.

This isn't really about politics at all; this is an example of one of the most self-serving entities you'll ever find.

Why not?

I took their AARP cc sign-on bonus so might as well take this.

rated:
I did this last year. I have used discounts at Hilton Hotels and Denny's. I will also use at Outback next time. Just those discounts are worth more than the $16 membership fee, and its even better when Walgreens pays for it for me.

What other discounts has everyone enjoyed with AARP?

  I think support is a strong word.  More like get free membership, use the discounts.  If anything, we're trying to make them poorer. 

I miss the days of 5% anywhere cashback for my AARP chase CC.

Never got email . They =said originally on phone the info I gave them was all that was needed. Now they tell me they will not honor offer as it has expired. I should have gotten the coupon at time of purchase printout. it did not print one. If they do not honor I will not be going to Walgreens again.
  Catalina came through for me. But, that said, I haven't heard from AARP yet either.
