Looking for AARP discounts? Signing up with the right club or group can get you some great perks, deals, and discounts. But if you’re not a joiner, don’t worry! You can still reap the benefits. Kyle James from is sharing some amazing group discounts for non-group members that you should be taking advantage of.  

1. AARP Discounts 

Turns out, AARP discounts aren’t just exclusive to an age group. Most people think you have to be 50 or older to even quality for a membership, but that’s not the case. According to AARP, anyone 18 and over can pay the $16 annual fee and become a member. The membership gives you access to a ton of discounts, including dining, hotel accommodations, travel and much more. If you use it once or twice a year, this membership will easily pay for itself. Doesn’t matter if you’re 18 or 65, a 15 percent off at Denny’s is a deal we’ll take any day! 

2. AARP Employee Perk Programs 

If you work for a decent-sized company, you stand a good chance that your employer is involved in one of these programs. They can offer discounts on everything from smartphone data plans to concert tickets and travel.  

But it’s not just your gig. In many cases, these discounts are also available to your spouse or direct family members – so share! Compare discount programs, have the family member with the best discount make certain purchases, and pay them back. 

3. AARP Student Discounts  

If you’re paying to get a kid through school, the least they can do is share their student discount! Go ahead, use their .edu email address. Have your student sign up online directly with companies offering discounts, or at student discount aggregators like UNiDAYS, which gathers dozens of brands all in one place. And then there’s the big one, Amazon. Their Prime Student Program has a free six-month trial and is half-price after that. 

Prime members also get free two-day shipping. So, have your kids order stuff for you through Amazon. You know, it’s a good way to recoup some of your tuition costs!

Who says group discounts have to be exclusive to a certain demographic? These awesome hacks will let you claim those discounts and perks to save you and your family some serious cash.
