I am participating in a membership campaign for AARP and received compensation for this post; however, the opinions expressed here are my own. I am in no way affiliated with AARP and do not earn a commission or percent of sales. Explore Your Opportunities at 50+ with AARP.
To me, life begins at 50. It’s when you’re the strongest, most experienced, and more open-minded, and smarter than your younger self. Agree? Now, that’s not to say we stop learning at this age because that’s far from the truth. As a matter of fact, we must continue to learn something. I know a place where that can happen…it’s called AARP. Are you an AARP Member? If you are, then you know your possibilities are endless. If not, then I invite you to explore your opportunities at 50+ with AARP.
With AARP being around for 60 years, they know a thing or two about the information people who are 50+ seek. It’s an excellent community to go to for inspiration, knowledge, and answers.

AARP The Magazine is a bonus in its self. It’s about real people and real situations and offers a wealth of information on health, saving money, financial protection, best places to live, and even talks about the lives of celebrities. And, that’s just a glimpse of the magazine. Did you know Kevin Bacon turns 60 this year? Wow!
There was even a recent magazine with the infamous Willie Nelson on the front of it. I’m sure everyone knows him. I sure do. I grew up going to his concerts, and I probably had every one of his albums.
Most importantly, from the magazine, I get inspired by the articles under “HealthyYou.” The latest article is on your breakfast IQ. Did you know a side of bacon can be better for you than a side of sausage, and that a high-fiber cereal can be better than oatmeal? I didn’t. The other article is about what physicians wished their patients knew. It seems doctors know what we are thinking while sitting in the waiting room.
I’m proud that I am an AARP member merely because of the fabulous information I learn. Where else can you go that’s just for us?
Did you know that when you join, your spouse can be a member too? When I turned 50, my husband was only 42, but he was still able to join AARP for free, with my membership.
My top three benefits of being an AARP member
- Being a healthy person, I find many articles on Health and Wellness that continue to help me gain momentum in this changing way of life.
- Of course, you can’t beat the discounts you get on travel and at restaurants. My husband and I use this service quite often. I always ask restaurants if they take AARP.
- I love the valuable information I receive via email, like: “Many Uses for Your Leftover Coffee.” You wouldn’t believe what all people do with their leftover cup of joe!
Join today and receive 25% off your AARP membership AND a free day bag, PLUS, get access to Personal Assistants Service from Maestro, which is like having your own personal concierge.
You’ll find all kinds of new and fresh ideas in the magazine, so why not explore your opportunities at 50+ with AARP? Take advantage of all the benefits of being an AARP Member today!
On another note, I recently had the opportunity to do an AARP Photo Shoot for Disrupt Aging Online Magazine, which includes my son. That was such a fun day.
There’s a reason they’ve been around so long. Great resource for seniors and those that love them.

I’ve never really had the time to look fully into AARP. I like to know all about companies before I associate myself with them. I looks like they have a lot to offer.
Tabitha Blue says
I’m not to 50 yet, but I can definitely see why you say life begins at 50! Just over the years as I’ve grown, and as I change, I love the world around me so much more! There’s freedom in being yourself and learning who that is.
I love that. It’s so true.
Gervin Khan says
This is such a good information to know for my Aunt who is living in the states for more that 3 decades. She already turned 50 years of age this year and I am sure she would love to become a member of AARP community.
Jona Shares says
Wow, this is my first time to learn about this and I am glad there is such. Perfect for older people to continue learning.
That is great there is so many discounts for traveling. I love that you mentioned that turning 50 makes you more comfortable in who you are, relaxed in life. You have the knowledge and experience to know what really matters about life.
It Truly feels good to be over 50. …way over 50!
Lisa Martin says
What can you do with left over coffee? I’m curious now. I wonder if my parents have looked into this. I think it would be great for them.
Well, you must have read another one of my post. UMMM, coffee and AARP – sounds good to me!
Pam Wattenbarger says
My dad was an AARP member. He got such great discounts when we were traveling.
Alyssa H says
Wait-I am WAAAAY too close to AARP-age for comfort! 😉 Seriously though, there are so many amazing benefits and the magazine is really good!
This is good info for my mother and MIL. I’ll pass it along to them

I’m only 35 but if I was eligible, I’d be all over an AARP membership. It’s a great organization.
I’ve always wondered exactly what AARP had to offer. I had no idea there was a magazine that provided such great content! Thank you so much for putting this on my radar!
Sarah Bailey says
This sounds like a good membership for over 50s. We have something called SAGA over here which sounds similar to this.
I’ve heard great things about this. My parents are members and like to share the magazine with me. There are some good tips in there!
Tasheena Nicole Johnson says
Great tips! My dad and aunt are members of AARP. They have so many amazing benefits.
My parents are members of the AARP and they love all the benefits that come with it. When I get older I will have to look into it.
Tomi Clark says
My husband always ask for either a military discount or an AARP discount when we travel. Saving money one place so we can travel more.
I don’t think we have checked into AARP good reminder to check out what they offer to older people
