Speaking of misleading!

Why in the world are you sending us a 2022 membership form to sign up for several more years when we are already signed up through 2025.  So if we didn't happen to remember our last renewal, we would have to take the time to check it out, or sign up for more time cluelessly.  So much for trusting an organization whose purpose is to advocate for older people.


We have lost trust in you - your actions are not what you advocate.  Be embarrassed.

@PeterS554948 Happy to help! We occasionally mail out early bird renewal offers to existing members that feature exclusive pricing for members who wish to renew early. Also, any mailings addressed to "Valued Member" are mass mailings that go to all households and they are not specifically directed to you.


I will need more information about the mailing you received in order to investigate this further. If you'd like to send me a private message with more details, check out the steps to do that here: How to Send a Private Message

Agreed, Peter... I have fought this for decades, as my mom, who I bought a life membership 30 yrs ago, tried to renew every time she got the reminder...


I hate (seriously using that word) AARP does not filter and subscribe to smarter stewardship...

This is a common practice with most subscriptions. In fact, my favorite is Time Magazine. I negotiate Time Magazine at a price of $30 for three years of weekly issues.


As soon as my subscription starts, I start receiving correspondence from Time for a ONE year $40 subscription with two gift subscriptions included.
