The AARP strikes again.

Eleven years ago when I was still in my 30s, I received an AARP card in the mail . Thursday I received a “thank you for joining” email to the account I use for retail receipts. And then yesterday, this…

Trust me, I work for a membership organization. This is how you opt out.

I’m still not 50 yet, but it seems like they’re casting a wider net again.

At least they got the name right this time.


  • Strange. I’ll be 50 in less than a year and have never received anything from them. Ann, five years my junior, has gotten fliers from Rascal electric scooters over the years. Go figure ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    • I was also automatically subscribed to their emails, and you know how when you click on unsubscribe links you can see the address that goes into the address bar of the browser? It had &birthyear=1953 in it which at least explains why they’re trying to get me.

  • They hit my wife right around her 50th and we signed up. The discount on dinner for two at a decent restaurant pays for the annual membership, and then the hotel discounts are very useful.

    • I’m currently more vain than frugal. I expect that to flip soon though. Dinner, you say?
