Download AARP Magazine & Bulletin for offline reading on a computer

Is there a way to download the AARP Magazine and AARP Bulletin for offline reading on a computer? I have downloaded them on my smartphone and someday I may actually find where they were downloaded to and what format they were downloaded in (PDF, etc.).

 

If there is a way to download to a computer, is there a way to stop the paper delivery so there would be no need to recycle them?

 

Thanks in advance for any assistance. 🙄

@VictorTango76  Thank you for being a member! I invite you to visit AARP The Magazine at aarpmagazine.org or AARP Bulletin at bulletin.aarp.org to view published content online.

 

I was also able to stop delivery of your AARP Bulletin and AARP Magazine and they will stop being delivered to you within 4-6 weeks due to pre-printed mailing labels.

Hi @AARPJanelleM  - I would also like to have the physical Magazine stopped. I don't know why I have to request the stoppage over and over. It always restarts after a while.

 

There really needs to be an account setting to never send any physical publications. All my utility companies have that ability. If it is buried in the settings somewhere, please tell me where.

 

Thanks much!

@ralmon You got it! I apologize that you've had to request the stoppage more than once. I see your AARP Bulletin publication was stopped last year but the AARP Magazine was not. I have now stopped the delivery of both publications for you and they will stop being delivered to you within 4-6 weeks.

Thanks for stopping the printed AARP Bulletin and AARP Magazine - the environment also thanks you.

 

So, I guess there is no way to download the AARP Bulletin and AARP Magazine as PDF's to be read on other devices, like a Kindle or Nook or other devices that are not connected to the Internet?

@VictorTango76 You're welcome! Unfortunately, we don't have that feature for our publications at this time. The digital versions can be accessed on the websites and AARP Members can also download the free AARP Publications app from the App Store or Google Play to get instant access to all your favorite issues from your smartphone and tablet.

I currently receive both AARP Magazine and AARP Bulletin in the mail, but I would also like to download PDF copies to my Windows 10 PC.

 

I was unable to find a way to do this on your website, and a web search only talks about doing it to a smart phone.  I do not have a smart phone, but would like to have copies on my PC which I can search easily.

 

If this is not currently possible, how do I tell decision makers that it is definitely needed? I'm sure I'm not the only member who would love to have this.

 

Please forward this to anyone who can make a difference.

 

Thanks.

@bjedrick Unfortunately, there is no way to download PDF copies of the publications at this time. I have passed on your suggestion to our team. Also, as an AARP Member, you can log in to view the current issue of AARP The Magazine and AARP Bulletin online.

By all means, produce the pubs as downloadable pdfs to save paper and make it more accessible to more folks. I'm sure that the files that go to the printers are already in pdf format, but I don't see much in the way of technical barriers.

Please stop mine too.  Can you stop all paper mail and also the plastic membership card?
