I am participating in a September Dining Days campaign for AARP Services, Inc. I am receiving a fee for posting; however, the opinions about AARP Member Advantages expressed in this post are my own. I am in no way affiliated with AARP Services Inc. and do not earn a commission or percent of sales.
Have you had your mid-life crises yet? I have had two. One at 25 and one at 50. At 25, all I could think about was I was turning a quarter of a century. That sounded ancient! Silly, right?! And then I turned 50.
Live Life To The Fullest With AARP Member Advantages
I looked back at the fun I had in life. How could life be better at this age? Well, let me tell you, it is! There is so much to experience. I cannot wait for what is yet to come! And I am finding I can live life to the fullest with the benefits found on the AARP Member Advantages website!
If you are in the 50+ club, you should join AARP! They have so much to offer! You have access to discounts on dining, travel, retail and more.
Taking A Break With The Family
One of my favorite things to do is go out for a meal. I am happy to go with my family, my husband for date night or a quiet lunch with myself. It is fun to have a chef cook a meal, a kitchen staff put it together and a server to bring it to your table.
It is a nice break from cooking for my family at home. Because I worked in the restaurant industry for many years, I have a sweet spot for all who work in it.
That is why I am so thrilled to tell you about September Dining Days. It is an AARP Member Advantages campaign to highlight dining providers.
AARP is an advocate for folks like me who are in the 50+ population, working to affect positive social change for us.
With my AARP membership, I can save on dining with deals from many of our favorite restaurants! When you are an AARP member, you just show your card at participating restaurants and you will receive a discount on your bill!
Here are some of the great discounts available to members:
- Outback Steak House (10% off check every day)
- Carrabba’s Italian Grill (10% off check every day)
- Bonefish Grill (10% off check every day)
- Denny’s (15% off check every day, at participating locations)
- Dunkin’ Donuts (free donut with purchase of large or extra-large beverage)
- Landry’s INC. Restaurants (10% off food and non-alcoholic beverages everyday): Chart
House, McCormick & Schmick’s, Oceanaire
- sweetFrog Premium Frozen Yogurt (15% off in-store purchases & 15% off gift cards
So remember to join AARP and sign up to receive emails from AARP Member Advantages TODAY to start enjoying their multitude of benefits. Then remember to enter to win!

Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle saysSeptember 12, 2017 at 5:27 pm
I love that you can get so many deals as an AARP member. My aunt is a member, and she’s always talking about the deals she gets on things.
Catherine Sargent saysSeptember 12, 2017 at 5:30 pm
Wow, I didn’t know you could get so many deals with AARP. I will make sure my mom and dad know about it.

AnnMarie John saysSeptember 12, 2017 at 8:30 pm
I am foodie, and although we don’t go out often to eat because it’s a little expensive, I would love to take advantage of this! It’s awesome to be able to enjoy your fave restaurant and get discounts as well!
Randa saysSeptember 12, 2017 at 8:34 pm
These are some really fantastic savings. I had no idea that so many were available.
tara pittman saysSeptember 12, 2017 at 8:42 pm
I just got my offer in the mail. I need to sign up for those deals
Jenn Mitchell saysSeptember 12, 2017 at 8:50 pm
There are definitely so many perks to being a member. I had no idea that there were so many deals and benefits.
Carol Cassara saysSeptember 12, 2017 at 8:57 pm
My husband and I travel often and it would be so nice to be able to go and enjoy the discounts from restaurants that we usually eat at.. Thanks for the awesome info on this!
Amy Desrosiers saysSeptember 12, 2017 at 8:59 pm
I love going out to eat with my family. While I normally do not get many discounts any that come my way are always appreciated.
brianne saysSeptember 12, 2017 at 9:02 pm
Going to dinners is one of my favorite things to do as well. I have to check out this membership!
Angela Milnes saysSeptember 12, 2017 at 9:06 pm
I had a crisis at 26 until I was 28. lol I’m with you there! I’m nowhere near 50 but I know a few people who love to have this info.
Wendy Polisi saysSeptember 12, 2017 at 9:06 pm
The stuff I see AARP help its members with is amazing. I really need to start looking into it.
Jocelyn @ Hip Mama's Place saysSeptember 12, 2017 at 9:19 pm
My husband and I love taking the kids to different restaurants to eat! It’s really nice to know that we can save while doing what we enjoy! Thanks for the heads up on this!
Mitch saysSeptember 12, 2017 at 9:21 pm
Oh crap. I had no idea. I have my AARP I my wallet at all times and I had no idea of these benefits that I could have been receiving, especially the 10% off of Landry’s, we were just at Disney and ate at two of their restaurants!
Thanks so much for this, I will tell my hubby, at this point, e is my memory!
Theresa saysSeptember 12, 2017 at 9:40 pm
I need to tell my mom about AARP. She loves getting discounts now that she is a senior and this would really help her stretch her budget even more.
Pam saysSeptember 12, 2017 at 9:46 pm
AARP has some great benefits. These are really nice discounts for AARP members.

You get some great perks with AARP and the September campaign sounds awesome. Those discounts are definitely significant.

Oh great tips! I know as we get older it’s important to remember these things.
Lisa Favre saysSeptember 12, 2017 at 10:46 pm
Oh Kelly, I love this post and I just want to say how fantastic you’re looking! So happy to see you smiling as well as the rest of your family!
Sarah L saysSeptember 12, 2017 at 11:07 pm
Thanks for the info on Dining Days. I am a member but don’t use it very often.
Becky Willis saysSeptember 12, 2017 at 11:07 pm
One I didn’t think you could be 50 yet, you look so much younger. I am 48 and didn’t realize you could get benefits from AARP at 50. That is really neat! I usually enjoy my Mom’s Senior Discount at Dunkin since she is 70, well before she was 70 but you know what I mean. lol. Thank you for all of the info.
Tess saysSeptember 12, 2017 at 11:11 pm
Aarp looks like a great membership. My husband started getting advertisements for it and he didnt realized they started so early.
Toni | Boulder Locavore saysSeptember 12, 2017 at 11:11 pm
That’s a great deal! I’ll share this with someone who is eligible to avail.
Cinny saysSeptember 12, 2017 at 11:37 pm
I didn’t even know there were all these great deals with AARP. Now I wish I had it so I could take advantage.
travel blogger saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 12:20 am
They really do have great discounts! While I am not quite there yet, I will have to pass this along to others. I had a mid-life crisis at 25 too ha ha, and I am scared to turn 50. Hoepfully, some new discounts will soften the blow lol.
Sinisa saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 1:09 am
Good to know for when I get older. Great tips
Kiwi saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 1:37 am
My parents are in this age range I think they are AARP members. I dont think they know about the perks so I will share this with them.
Crystal saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 2:24 am
Love that you can save on the things that bring you joy. Going out to eat makes me so happy too! No dishes, no whining about what’s to eat. Sign me up for AARP!
Shannon Gurnee saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 5:25 am
I’ve heard a lot of great things about AARP! I will definitely be checking it out when I get older.
Crystal Carder saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 5:42 am
My parents have AARP, they are always reaping great benefits! I will have to share these deals with them, thanks for sharing.
Mary Ann saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 6:16 am
Sounds like some great perks! I mean, who doesn’t love to save money and get to go out to eat?
mycraftingworld saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 6:31 am
Thank you for all those tips on discounts. Every little bit helps for people old enough to be a member of AARP
Julia saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 6:59 am
These are some great deals that i’m sure most members don’t take advantage of!
reesa saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 9:20 am
My parents are AARP members and I didn’t know they had such great benefits! I hope they are taking advantage of them!
Ellie Di saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 9:36 am
I had a mid life crisis at 25 too!! It was such a shock thinking I was at that point of life where I should have done something with myself already…Then I got over it, started thinking more for myself than what society expected from me and everything got back to the right path. I’m not even 28 now, but I’ll surely tell to my parents about the AARP members, they need some fun and new ways to spend time together!!
Autumn Reo saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 11:59 am
So great to see these things are offered to our retired seniors! I’m sharing with the parents!
Patty saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 12:20 pm
My husband and I use the hotel discount from AARP all the time. I’d not heard of Dining Days before so thank you for letting me know. Sounds like a great reason to go out to dinner.
April saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 12:32 pm
My husband and I keep getting the AARP membership in the mail, I have yet to sign up. Looks like they get some really good discounts. I will have to look into it again.
Tracy @ Ascending Butterfly saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 2:29 pm
AARP has always confused me, I started getting mail from them when I turned 18 which confuses me. I just figured they would buy the mailing list of those registered to vote?
One of my Aunts uses them and gets a lot of neat discounts, she uses the travel ones all the time.
Tara saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 3:30 pm
There are some great benefits to being an AARP member. I wish we had something like this in Canada.
Kaity | With Kids and Coffee saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 5:24 pm
What a great program for those over 50! All of those discounts are fantastic, although that Dunkin’ Donut offer would get a litttttle bit dangerous for me if I started add on a donut to all of my coffees. 😉
Our Family World saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 7:18 pm
My mom is a member and she maximizes her membership. LOL. She loves going out with her senior citizen friends to have a snack at a nearby cafe. I think she also gets discounts on her phone bill.
Mary Songer saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 7:40 pm
You may have just talked me into it. I haven’t joined yet. Somehow I thought if I don’t join I’m not older. However I do love discounts!
Cindy saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 8:18 pm
I will turn 60 this Dec. and I keep forgetting I’m a senior citizen, I really need to join AAPR.
Angela Tolsma saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 8:28 pm
My mid life crisis is happening at 30! This program though sounds so awesome and I am going to sign my mother and father in law up for it!
Amber Nelson saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 10:20 pm
I have been getting AARP envelopes in my mail. I can’t believe it! Talk about making me feel old!
Ruth I. saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 10:48 pm
It has so many benefits! How I wish we have that here so I can also enjoy here.
Andrea saysSeptember 13, 2017 at 11:12 pm
It sounds like AARP has a ton of benefits! I am going to look into it and see if my mom would benefit from it!
Cynthia R saysSeptember 14, 2017 at 11:21 am
My boss tells me all about his AARP discounts, what a great program!
Lana simanovicki saysSeptember 15, 2017 at 9:34 am
I’m gonna sign up for this
Rebecca Swenor saysSeptember 15, 2017 at 10:35 am
This campaign for dining through AARP is something I will have to share with my parents. The AARP Member Advantages has so many perks that can save you so much on every day things. Thanks for sharing the information.
Natasha saysSeptember 15, 2017 at 2:54 pm
Sounds like a great offer, with good member benefits. My hubs just received an offer in the mail. So this post is quite informative.
anvita saysSeptember 15, 2017 at 4:32 pm
I know we are members and we love some of the perks. Enjoyed seeing your pictures.
Nicole saysSeptember 16, 2017 at 6:38 am
What a great concept! And I can imagine that with 50 you are must more at ease with yourself and with the world. At least that is what I hope 🙂
Mary Songer saysSeptember 16, 2017 at 5:14 pm
My husband and I love Outback. The discount for that alone would cover the cost of the membership in one dinner. Cheese fries and filet here I come.
Rosie saysSeptember 18, 2017 at 10:39 am
I never eat at any of these places, but good to know about. I look up info on AARP’s webstite once in a while.
kavita devi WWE saysSeptember 18, 2017 at 4:46 pm
I pay a visit each day a few blogs and websites to read
articles, but this webpage presents feature
Andrea saysSeptember 19, 2017 at 7:44 pm
I need to pass this info along to my grandpa, who belongs to AARP and I don’t think he knows of all these wonderful benefits. Thank you so much for passing these along.
Lynne B saysSeptember 20, 2017 at 9:06 pm
We always ask if establishments if they offer an AARP discount. It never hurts to ask, right!
Sarah L saysSeptember 24, 2017 at 10:26 pm
Been entering the Dining contest daily since you told me about it.
Debra Holloway saysSeptember 25, 2017 at 6:04 am
AARP does a lot for its members. I wish they did more for the disabled.
Sarah L saysOctober 1, 2017 at 10:10 pm
Well, I guess I didn’t win the Dining Days contest. Sigh.
Sarah L saysOctober 7, 2017 at 10:35 pm
I need to use my membership more often.
mycraftingworld saysFebruary 23, 2018 at 7:05 am
Thank you for all the additional information about AARP. I did not know they offered all those discounts.
