  1. Carnival cruise line does not give a senior discount. They give nothing at all. You pay the same price no matter who you book with.

  2. We did a quick analysis last year when we first became eligible for AARP (and were about to go on a trip). We are certain that the VAST majority of people living an average active middle class (or above) lifestyle will definitely come out WAY ahead from an AARP membership. Paying attention and actively utilizing the savings can gain you into the hundreds/thousands each year!

  3. AARP is not a scam. My friends and I go to the Outback once a month and we save 10% off the check. There’s a big group and our savings add up. The savings help to fund a free meal once a year.

  4. Thank you so much! I need all the discounts I can get! I will be 76 on July 19th 2018, this will really come in handy for me! God bless you!!

  5. I have the 2015 list and it’s just the names and discounts by category and runs about two pages. Very handy. I don’t want pages and pages of description. Do you have such a list for 2018?

    If you have it, could you please email it to me. I signed up for your site. I thought it would be available there. That’s what I read in the comment section. But got there and didn’t see anything.
