I recently had the opportunity to use my AARP discount when I made hotel reservations. I think the total saved was about $15.00 for a 2 night stay. Not a huge savings, but as we all know every penny counts. This week end Borders is offering 20% off with your AARP card.
Now, I know you are asking, how does someone so young get an AARP card. You only have to be 50 years old or be married to someone who is 50. I do not think I will ever be old enough to qualify on my own, but I qualify being married to someone who is 50. The yearly cost is $16, which includes newsletters, magazines and discounts to hotels, gyms, rental cars, etc. For more information go to www.aarp.org
