    Although I know Michelle will never stay at Motel 6, but that card can save her 10% on a room and at IHOP.

    God bless and many happy returns of the day to our First Lady!!
    I was not as thrilled to receive my AARP card in the mail I must say, but I've had enough years now to get over it!

    AARP..........the group that abandoned seniors, to support the dictator's regime.

    I canceled my membership.

    Now that you've joined us in the 50 (plus) crowd Michelle, go a little lighter with the hair, and pay extra attenton to the shape and thickness of your eyebrows.
    Consider wearing your hair shorter or pulled back before you develop a playmate for your chin.
    Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize, although from your beautiful skin it is obvious that you already do so.
    And love, laugh, love, and laugh... often!
    That's my "welcome to 50" advice.

    AARP doesn't support or advocate for seniors. If they did they never would have supported Obamacare and the $715 billion it stole from Medicare. It is a big business cam that will do whatever is right to increase their bottomline. I throw their mailings in the trash as fast as they send them.

    When I was very young I teased 50-somethings. A *WEEK* later (it seemed), when 50 became MY age, I embraced AARP!

    And with a steady diet of IHOP food, you can now afford the health insurance to cover your type 2 diabetes and unclog your arteries.....it's all starting to make sense now.

    Happy Birthday Mrs. Obama! I hope someday you'll celebrate your 100th, as my grandmother will do in a couple of weeks!

    Happy Birthday Michelle. Please pay no attention to the inevitable right wing attacks on you for joining a lobby (AARP).

    well, I've had mine for almost 10 years.....it's not all, what it's cracked up to be....if you show your card to just about any restaurant, they will give you a discount, some more, some less, but you will get some type of discount, or they typically have some type of gimmick to bring you back in again, such as free coffee, or whatever it may be...

    I will also have to agree with DMFO – it's too thick – go thinline + pulled back and/or short (er)

    Just Saying – LOL -

    The first act of an evil dictator is to join AARP.

  21. just asking

    is this the payback to aarp for their support of obamacare? dump aarp and use the money for aaa. you'll get just as many discounts and never have to worry about breaking down. (your car that is)
