I spent yesterday walking through the convention floor meeting many people who do business with AARP members. It’s an amazing array, from telephones that display text for what someone is saying to Egypt and Panama tourism. Plus a giant booth full of cheerful tourism folks from the great state of Texas!

AARP costs a mere $16 a year, but their discounts give travelers and anyone over 50 a whole lot of savings throughout the year. Below are just some of the discounts you can find on entire AARPDiscounts.com website.  Oh, and don’t be taken in by those mailings you get. Get your membership from the AARP website.
