Quiz: Credit and debt
Quiz: Elder Financial Abuse
Quiz: What's your money IQ? Credit and Savings
Quiz: Will it hurt my credit?
Quiz: Test your knowledge of the Electoral College
Quiz: U.S. presidents trivia
Quiz: Car maintenance
Quiz: The generation game
Quiz: Presidential campaign slogans
Quiz: Supreme Court trivia
Quiz: What makes a community livable?

 

Leaving tbd:

Quiz: Do I still need to pay this debt?

Quiz: St. Patrick’s Day

 

and in Spanish:

¿Cuál es tu coeficiente intelectual financiero? (NB)
¿Cuánto sabe sobre los préstamos de día de pago? (NB)
¿La diferencia entre una cuenta 401(k) y una cuenta IRA? (NB)

 

Thanks so much for hearing us!

There is consistency - in having broken links, non-awarding pages even with the points listed (401k calculator , Tax aide locator, Spanish RMD calculator, etc.),  removing points (health tools all gone, health law answers).

@ab1695   There are often specialized membership promotions that are offered at different times of the year.  This ad was for that time period and isn't always offered.  We do not treat one membership different from any other, but may run promotions for memberships in different ways.

@ab1695  LOL Thanks for the giggles and great quotes.

 

Yes, I'm aware of that annual membership inconsistency, let's call it. Smiley Happy

 

Due to these inequalities, I have come to feel that the Spanish language program here is a step child. That bothers me, so I finally brought it up. I do wonder what a lifetime membership would have cost me had I been on the Spanish site when buying it ... maybe I should ask for a refund? Smiley Happy

 

Best to you,

Epster

You are hoping for consistency between the English- and Spanish-language versions? Lotsa luck. Haven't you ever noticed that if you are an English-speaker, your 1-year annual AARP dues payment is $16, while the Spanish blurb touts a $12 annual fee?

I'm going to credit the AARPies and AARPsters with a literary sensibility and cite this from Oscar Wilde: "Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative."

 

Or Ralph Waldo Emerson: "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall."

 

Or Harry Truman: "Consistency is the bugaboo of foolish minds." (Harry was always straight and to the point!)

@ab1695  Thank you so much for this thorough report!  I am esclating but we are also still working on an overall fix for the others so until that is done, you may noticed some missing still.  We have a team working hard to resolve these issues and will update along the way as we can.
