AARP how do they know?

I want to know how AARP knows when you turn 50. Bingo there it was in my mailbox the exact day I turned 50 my invitation to their organization.

Could you imagine being able to have your postcard or letter hit the potential sellers mailbox the exact day they are thinking about selling their house?

How many of you that got your invitation joined? I can see why they are so big.. the cost is very low and if you stay at any hotels you usually get a discount so it pays for itself.

I would love to hear from all of the young ones out ther that have their AARP membership. Do you feel you get your money's worth from it?

As a brand new 50 year old I still feel like a young whipper snapper. I think the age thing is over rated.

What do you think?

I think AARP is in kahootz with medicare/social security.  Those show up like clock work too just a few months before your 65th b'day.  We've never joined AARP...don't like their politics...and they are so big they have a HUGE influence.

Hi Mary

Thanks for your comment. I have to be honest. I never really payed attention to AARP political positions.

When you are young at heart you don't really pay attention to the age thing. I know they are huge. I never really thought about it from the political side. Do they lean left, what kind of issues do they push.

If they are in kahootz with medicare and ss my guess is that you are going to say they are for socialized medicine and probably a host of other government sponsored programs that won't work.

Surprise to me when I (Patty) turned 50 I got information from AARP in the mail also and must say was a bit unnerved. I thought that AARP was for 62 and over. Not sure about the benefits, it looked like the health insurance is higher than what we pay and I get the hotel discounts from AAA.

I'm only 47 - but, with the way the market's been this last year I think I aged about 5 years.  Would that make me 50 something? I can't wait - actually!  50's the new 30, right!??
