Hi @AmandaT382209, while you wait for your physical card we have several different ways you can access your card. Through the free AARP Now app you can have instant access to your membership card and other member benefits right at your fingertips. Learn more at aarp.info/nowapp-sr. In addition, you have the ability to print out a copy of your card. Instructions for that process can be found at aarp.info/replacementcard-vid

The sticker is confusing but the 3 step instructions at the bottom of the attached page definitely state to "go to aarp.org/activation and register your new cards".  So why these instructions if they supposedly eliminated the confusion??????

@lauris391635  What was the exact message on the sticker? Here is what was on my card when I received it.

Providing an image would help.

So what is the purpose of the sticker? I searched the web site to activate my card and couldnt find where or how. All I found was that AARP apologizes over and over for the confusion. Can somone explain why they continue to put the sticker on our cards.


@lauris391635  All I can do is guess. Smiley Happy  I assume they got a great deal on a gazillion card blanks and have, since they took delivery, changed processes.  Wild guess. Smiley Happy
