Most people who attended the "Maximizing Your Membership - How to Get the Most Value Out of Your AARP Membership" session expected to hear more details about AARP's current discounts and benefits. A team of benefit experts did just that, with timely reminders about AARP's Consumer Cellular and Driver Safety programs, discounts on AARP legal services, much-welcomed discounts at the Everyday Savings Center, and the Health Essentials Catalog.
But lucky (and somewhat surprised) attendees were most pleased to hear a preview of upcoming AARP benefits, revealed for the first time by AARP's Vice President of Membership Lynn Mento -- including grocery coupons, restaurant discounts in conjunction with Restaurants.com, a hearing care program, work and finance webinars, and more travel and entertainment offers.
"If anyone deserves a sneak peek," she told us afterwards, " it's our members attending Vegas@50+." Judging from the loud round of applause that greeted Mento's surprise presentation, those members quite agree.
