AARP has long been regarded as something reserved to those age 55 and older. It’s a “right of passage” into the senior discount world, and one that’s both feared and loved.
I have no fear, and I’m a proud card-carrying member. I’m also only 24 years old.
If you still don’t believe me, here’s my membership card:
For $16 a year, you can experience the benefits of membership, too. You don’t need to be 55+! There is no age restriction, and the ability to sign up is open to all. To register, you’ll need to visit the AARP website here.
For your annual membership fee, you’re able to save a TON of money – and it’s a no brainer to renew every year:
- Save $400 on a round-trip British Airways First or Business Class ticket, or up to $130 on an Economy/Premium Economy ticket.
- Receive a free donut at Dunkin’ Donuts when you purchase a large or extra large beverage.
- Save up to 25% with Avis car rentals.
- Save 10% at Choice Hotels.
- Save 15% on lunch at Outback Steakhouse.
- …and more!
Obviously, the biggest savings here is the British Airways discounts. Every so often, you’ll find a sub-$2,000 Club World (Business Class) fare, and by simply joining AARP for $16, you’ll then save $400. While there are terms and conditions, it’s not as restrictive as you might think, so you’ll more than likely be able to take advantage of this benefit if you’d like.
