16 AARP Benefits to Start Using Today

Allie Johnson

Are you a card-carrying AARP member? If so, it’s a good idea to make sure you’re taking advantage of the many perks of being a member of the club.

You probably know that your AARP membership benefits include discounts on an array of products from home and car insurance, to tour packages and home security systems. But you may not realize how many — and what a wide variety — are on offer.

“The benefits I use religiously are the discounts,” says AARP member Carol Gee, a retired higher education instructor and administrator in Atlanta. For example, she recently booked a hotel for a trip with her husband to celebrate their 45th wedding anniversary. She was quoted a rate of $229, but saved $35 with her AARP card. “We were upgraded to a suite at that rate, which was really very nice,” she says.

AARP benefits extend far beyond travel discounts. Make sure you aren’t missing out on these savings or any of the many other pluses of being a member.

AARP Membership Enables You To:

1. Find free financial advice. 

As you move toward or into retirement, taking care of your money is essential. As an AARP member, you can print or order free financial publications with detailed advice on topics such as carrying mortgage debt into retirement, dealing with age discrimination, investing with IRAs, reinventing your career and when to claim Social Security.

2. Save on car insurance. 

Your years of driving experience help make you a better driver. When you sign up for the AARP® Auto Insurance Program from The Hartford, you can get rewarded with lower premiums. Also, enjoy a discount for the next three years when you complete the AARP Smart DriverTMCourse. Just send The Hartford a copy of your certificate or update your policy online to receive a credit on your car insurance premium.

3. Cut the cost of home insurance. 

Get a discount through the AARP® Homeowners Insurance Program from The Hartford. The program offers valuable coverage for your personal property and protection against personal liability. A range of options are available to meet your needs — whether you own a house or condo, or you’re a renter. Save even more when you bundle your home and auto policies.

4. Get dental and vision insurance.

As you age, eye health and oral health are more important than ever. The AARP® MyVision Care provided through EyeMed offers AARP members a choice among three vision insurance plans. These include comprehensive eye exams with minimal copays and deep discounts on lenses and frames. AARP also offers dental insurance, administered by Delta Dental, that features large dentist networks, limits on out-of-pocket costs and guaranteed acceptance for AARP members.

5. Improve your hearing. 

Hey, have you heard? It’s also important not to neglect your ears. The AARP® Hearing Care Program offers an in-person hearing test, custom fitting for hearing aids and a 20% discount on a large portfolio of digital hearing aids. You even get a free three-year supply of hearing aid batteries.

6. Pay less for prescriptions. 

About 70% of Americans take at least one prescription drug, and 20% take five or more. The cost of these medications adds up, so why not save? The AARP® Prescription Discounts offers savings to AARP members and their spouses and dependents on drugs not covered by your current prescription insurance or Medicare Part D. The savings average up to 61%.

7. Entertain yourself while waiting in line. 

You don’t have to let apps and games drain your bank account a buck at a time. AARP offers free online games for members. Enjoy lots of classics from backgammon to daily jigsaw puzzles and mahjongg to solitaire. Some games are available to anyone, while others are for AARP members only. The bonus? Online games can help keep your mind sharp.

8. Read the AARP magazine. 

As a member, you receive AARP The Magazine, which offers practical, usable advice on topics important to readers aged 50-plus. This includes info on health, money and wellness. Recent topics include exercising without breaking a sweat, raising funds fast and cutting your grocery bill by having a garden. Gee says she loves getting the magazine to learn about topics like scams targeted at older Americans, along with the latest info on Medicare and Social Security benefits. You can also access the magazine digitally by downloading the AARP Publications iPad app.

9. Bury your nose in a book for less. 

Are you a book lover who can’t always find what you want at the library? The AARP Bookstore offers AARP members 40% off select titles when ordered directly from the publisher. You can also get ebooks and free downloads on health, food, technology, money and work, home, family and caregiving, and more..

10. Supercharge your rewards earnings.

Loyalty programs from airlines, credit card issuers, and retailers are a great way to live large and get more for your money. AARP offers several ways to maximize your rewards. You also can link your AARP membership card to your Walgreen’s Balance Rewards account to earn 50 points for every $1 you spend in the store.

11. Earn while you learn. 

When you join the free AARP Rewards for Good program, you earn rewards points for using designated online tools, quizzes and webinars at You can then redeem your points for deals and offers from local retailers, participate in live auctions on everything from iPads to gift cards, and enter sweepstakes for the chance to win prizes. AARP members earn 50% more points.

12. Stretch your dining and entertainment dollars.

You may already know that AARP has deals with restaurants that allow members to trim the fat from their restaurant bills. Most participating restaurants offer AARP members 10% to 15% off their total. Restaurants that offer discounts include Bonefish Grill, McCormick & Schmick’s, and Outback Steakhouse. Want to see a show after dinner? You can also get 20% off online ePremiere Tickets purchased online that can be used at Regal movie theaters nationwide.

13. Save more money when you shop. 

Members also can get an array of other AARP benefits and discounts to keep more money in their wallets. For example, show your AARP card at Tanger Shopper Services and get a free coupon book with over $1,000 in discounts that can be redeemed at a variety of outlet stores. You can also get free printable coupons good at grocery stores, drug stores and other retailers from

14. Protect your pet with health insurance. 

Fido and Muffy cheer you up, crack you up, and maybe even motivate you to exercise more. AARP allows you to keep your furry family members healthy with up to a 10% member discount on pet health insurance (when you enroll online) plus a $35 prepaid Petplan Visa® Prepaid Card you can use at your next vet visit.

Find out why dogs and cats make the best pets for retirees.

15. Pay less for airport parking, rental cars and hotels. 

Get 12% off for off-airport parking with your AARP card at more than 150 locations when you book in advance. AARP offers members a variety of savings on lodging and car rentals.

16. Tour the world for less.

As an AARP member, you can travel light (on your wallet) with discounts on vacations. Here are a few examples: AARP membership includes $50 off per person on small group cultural immersion tours from Collette Explorations. You also get up to $100 off per person on guided vacations, including river cruises to Europe, from Grand European Travel. If you want to see the world by train, you can get 5% off worldwide rail vacations and train tours from Vacations by Rail.

While this may seem like quite the list, there are plenty more perks where these came from. If you haven’t done so already, download the AARP Now mobile app, which lets you easily access your AARP benefits right from your smartphone. And don’t forget that you can add your spouse or partner to your AARP membership at no cost. That’s an easy way to double the bang for your buck!

      Hello. Can you please help? For several years my husband and I used the AARP credit card for travel and reaped the benefits of the points earned to reduce our travel expenses. During the Christmas season someone gained access to our information and charged items to our account fraudulently. I have called and written to Barclays repeatedly and have received feedback that this would be removed from our responsibility but I continue to get past due notices from them. What can I do? Thank you. Peggy

    • Alan Tierney | May 1, 2022 at 11:23 am

      My partner joined AARP years ago and added me as a add on. I got one card and no more. It expired years ago. I started looking at drugs it would cost me 2 times as much more than I am paying now. Where’s the savings? And most drugs aren’t on your list and only at places that are not available to me. Hartford cost more than what I have for auto insurance. Eating out nothing around. So show me what AARP will save me money on. I am. Getting ready to tell my partner to drop AARP it is a waste of money. Convince me otherwise. Show me something that is a savings.

      • Extra Mile Staff | May 2, 2022 at 2:44 pm

      Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a “grab a book” from our local library but I think I learned more clearly from this post. I am very glad to see such magnificent information being shared freely out there.

      • Extra Mile Staff | April 15, 2022 at 8:03 am

        Thanks for commenting, Floyd! We’re glad you found the information useful.

    • Lee chatterton | March 31, 2022 at 9:54 am

      Tried to rent a car using AARP membership. I did not see the savings at all. The rental was cheaper without AARP. Is the joke on me for wasting my money on this membership. Just don’t see the savings. False advertising.

      We have been members for 2 years and have yet to use it. There are no restaurants listed on your site that we go to here in Oregon, no shopping, rail systems and the list goes on. I’m trying to talk my husband out to the membership. Hartford Insurance is MUCH higher than what we currently pay through State Farm Insurance!. I just don’t see the benefit here .

      On my local radio station AARP advertises exercise classes as part of their service. I googled this and found there is such an option. BUT it was an extra payment per month.

        I asked you a question:
        Does aarp offer road side assistance.?
        Instead of answering YES or NO
        you referred me to a website. So i still have no clue.
        I understand that you have all sorts of legal issues with a direct answer,
        BUT there has got to be a good solution.
        So DOES AAA. Offer Roadside Assistance??!

      My grandfather wants to know if AARP will benefit him. He is 88 yrs old, doesn’t go out to eat, doesn’t own a credit/debit card, doesn’t ever travel. He goes to the doctor, gets his medicine, and grocery store. Will not change auto insurance. So what will it really benefit? Oh, he will not use a computer or smart phone!

      One thing I would like to say is that often before buying more laptop or computer memory, look into the machine into which it could well be installed. In case the machine is actually running Windows XP, for instance, a memory ceiling is 3.25GB. Installing greater than this would easily constitute just a waste. Make sure that one’s mother board can handle the actual upgrade amount, as well. Thanks for your blog post.

      I signed up for AARP online in January 2020. I registered my membership number and everything was fine. Went to use a discount thru it for glasses and they said I didn’t have a membership. Called , the agent was very rude and acted like I was a bother to him.. I had wrote my membership number down until I got my card. I gave him the number, gave my email , phone number & name. Gave him my debit card number that the payment was made from and the date was paid. It is now Apri; 13, 2020 and I still have not received my membership card .. I have not even received a response email back from them.. I was wanting to use the discounts for hotel and flights this October. I have cancer and wanting to go to Ireland for a week with my family. Thanks to AARP not sending my card I can’t use the discounts. They have not even offered to refund my money. Sherry Hiott

      Good evening. If you are a member that’s@ the age of 50-54, what does AARP actually covers for that individual. I ask because some hotel will not accept the AARP, if you are not 60, or above. Therefore, what qualifications are there for the 50-54?

      I’ve heard so much about the benefits related to dining out, but it really seems like there are only a dozen or so participating restaurants. Granted, the Landry’s Inc list contains a few additional, however many do not seem to be local to me.

      Are these really the only restaurant chains that participate?

      I just joined for one year and was especially interested in prescriptions that changed in Medicare tiers or that Medicare doesn’t cover. There appears to just be a small amount of prescriptions available and they’re all 0 copay through Medicare and the ones I need are very common drugs but none are available. This is the same mail order place that Medicare uses. For me, I just don’t see anything that I could use.Maybe I missed something but hotels are cheaper online. Very disappointing.

      I think AARP can do their members a big favor by letting them know not to do buy any Hearing Aids from Nano Hearing Tech. in Texas. This co is a scam they say you can try their
      Hearing Aids for 45 days, if they don’t help you hearing you can return them, but they won’t
      refund your money. I purchase two Hearing Aids for $697.00 on 11/16/19 I sent them back, but
      no refund. Check with Better Business Bureau, hundreds of complines on Nano Hearing Tech.

      I paid for AARP, 5 years in advance. You would think I would have gotten my AARP card for me and my husband. Nope. Not even a magazine or booklet to show us our discounts availability. Nope. They are in such a hurry to take your money and then just leave you hanging. This is why I never joined in the first place. I had turned 55 and my husband is 9 years younger than me. They turned him down because he was too young at the time. So if my husband isn’t good enough for you, that’s why I never tried to join again.
      Well, with him turning 55, we thought let’s try again. We were both accepted, but we have not heard anything from them yet and it has been over 2 months. What a shame.

        I will be 50 years old in June 2021. Do l have to wait until then to apply for membership?

      • Extra Mile Staff | January 4, 2021 at 2:14 pm

        Patricia – Here’s the info from AARP’s website:
        “AARP offers Associate Memberships for people under 50. As an Associate member, you’ll get all of the great benefits that come with membership that aren’t restricted by vendor offer requirements, such as age-restricted insurance products.
        After you turn 50, your membership will automatically convert to a full membership with no effort on your part.”

      • Lorraine Johnson | April 24, 2021 at 7:44 pm

        I am elderly. I need to join a gym that specializes or has services for my age group.
