10 AARP Discounts and Perks We Bet You Never Knew About

Everyone knows about the “AARP discount” members receive at restaurants, retail stores, hotels and more. But our research of all of AARP’s benefits revealed countless additional services and discounts we bet you knew nothing about. Check out these little-known AARP perks.

  1. Up to 60% off eye exams and 40% off glasses. AARP Vision Discounts, provided by EyeMed Vision Care®, offers valuable eyewear discounts at no additional cost for AARP members. Just show your AARP membership card to save up to 60% off eye exams, 40% on Transition lenses with a frame purchase, 30% on a complete pair of eyeglasses and prescription sunglasses, and 20% on contacts.
