AARP is a one-stop resource for most information the senior adult could use. I’ve been a member since 2008. I’m still at awe at the broad variety of membership advantages; the connection is rewarding.
Before joining the group, my knowledge of them had been limited. From time to time, an auto insurance commercial would air on television that got my attention somewhat. However, I would look at it as for the senior citizen. My age was a second thought to me. A litter bit later, I had to laugh at myself. I realized that the commercial was speaking to me also because I was almost 50 years old.
Then one day during lunch hour I heard two co-workers talking about AARP and the discounts they provided by being a member. The next commercial I saw about purchasing auto insurance, I wrote down the number and gave them a call. My insurance went from approximately $125 to $65 a month.
Initially, I joined AARP to get the reduction in my auto insurance coverage. Since that time, my insurance has only gone up about $10. I have been pleased with this because I want to keep my costs down. I checked into what else the group offers that would help me keep money in my pocket.
I’ve enjoyed three benefits so far with AARP.
I haven’t had any unexpected rise in premiums. The way I pay my premiums yearly, one of those months is free. This makes me happy.
From their website, I go to the shopping category, and I am able to print out coupons for groceries to save money. I know that coupons come in the mail, but this way seems easier for me. I scan through the items I want and print them out, and I take them with me to shop.
When I was in need of mortgage insurance. I could get a prompt quote and made a comparison. Because of my decision not to use them, the agent on the phone didn’t insist that I choose them and make me feel guilty.
Getting a quote for Long-Term Care was given along with advice to me. It seemed better to keep the policy I already had for three years.
My overall experience with AARP has been pleasant. It has resources that help the senior adult make wise decisions.
