The minute I turned 49, the mail started pouring in asking me to join AARP. So when I turned 50, I decided why not give it a try? The price of AARP membership was only $16 and my husband’s membership comes free with mine, so I thought $1.30 a month was a reasonable price to join. Plus, the free spouse counts as the first discount.
Here are a few highlights from this week’s top stories including strategies for planning you dream vacation using points, a person story of how e0c.4f5.myftpupload.com founder Barbara Jones gifted an exotic honeymoon to her cousin using points, and articles on top grocery store cards, AARP discounts, debt consolidation loans and airline loyalty programs.
When I first joined AARP, I didn’t take it too seriously. I mainly used my membership for the interesting publications and online articles. That was about it.

I knew that the general economy was suffering, but I’m certainly not in a financial position to take too many hits of higher prices. So, I let my AARP membership start to do a little work for me.
