I had a similar bad experience with their so called "free gift". If it looks online like you received it but you didn't, they will do nothing to help. Don't worry, if it's anything like the gift I got it isn't worth it. Total junk. Broke the first time I used it.
I have similar issues with not only the Rx plan, but also the way the Group F medical supplement plan went up in just 1 year. I joined Feb of last year and for the first time and this year the price went up twice for the medical. I take the least expensive plan for the Rx and am supposed to go through Walgreens. I'm finding that often it's cheaper if I don't use insurance and go someplace else on the rare times that I do need drugs. Is this just another hidden way AARP is making money off of us? I don't know. And I resent the "Free Gift" offer of the trunk grocery organizer when I got my last membership bill. Nothing is free. The handles broke the very first time I used it. Went right in the trash. Their marketing department should be called out on giving away junk.
Dental Insurance plan sponsored. This plan had a maximum amount recoverable annually
Members rely on AARP to sponsor the best "over all" plan available. A plan is offer by Physicians Mutual Insurance that has not annual maximum recoverable. Dental service can be expensive , when needed having a plan that limits the amount insurance will pay annually is not in the best interests of members. AARP should offer a plan with this ( if a cost difference members can select the one wanted)
May I introduce myself to you ? I am 67 and like most people in my age group we thought this part of our lives would be less stressful and more enjoyable with time for sharing with family and friends, but you know the rest.
Could I offer an outlet with a senior citizen focus with maybe something interesting, informative, thought and memory provoking such as a free podcast program ?
I am launching my podcast before the end of the month and would really like to share the better times as we go through the worst of times.
Please visit The Boyd Chronicles and let's help each other during this time with some lighter sides of life.
We are presently all trying to be postiive and make it through our present challenge: the Corona Virus. I see many articles come through the app on News Break.
I am wondering where I can find news from AARP to share with my friends?
I have the AARP MedicareRX Part D Plan for which I spend about $70.00 a month. I recently picked up my new prescription for Telsmisartan and paid Walgreens a $135 copay. CVS Pharmacy charge for the same prescription made by the same manufacturer, that has the same strength and quantity has a zero (0) copay with Welborn, Part D Plan that costs $15 a month. Walgreens said that AARP sets this price, not Walgreens or Medicare. I have checked around to other pharmacies to find their prices. Costco charges $29.00 for this prescription without a plan.
This will be the last time I will sign up for AARP Part D Medicare Plan. They are certainly not the honorable company that they portray themselves to be who look out for senior citizens.
Good. I hope they do.
Where is AARP in the fight to get my Social Security disability benefits? Why havent I heard an word about AARP in the fight in Washington over SS benefits? Why arent you talking to our lawmakers? Where is your lobby?
As a 20-year member - I have waited 12 weeks or more repeatedly for the alleged 'courtesy gift' for my two-year paid committment to AARP. I wish AARP would make a committment to either express or guarantee my receipt of the Blue-Tooth item without having to wait any longer than I already have, 1/24/2020. This is the third phone call and the first email I am sending regarding this item. The member should NOT have to be responsible for following up nor or tracking.
I tracked the last item and it was allegedly delivered, however, I did NOT receive the item from December 11, 2019. I do not wish to wait any longer. At this point either cancel my membership or get me the item, please,
A. Barry Rand/CEO

G_d help you
You think AARP is good. I have been trying to get them to cover a patient's medication all day. They could care less about our seniors. The only one that will help them is TRUMP. But Washington is too busy impeaching him and spending our moneys. Oh so you think i am a low life because I support Trump. ...well I have been a registered nurse for almost 40 years. I see the good Trump has done for our veterans and seniors.
OPEN YOU EYES PEOPLE!!
AARP Has "Partnerships" and will share your information without asking..... Non-Profit My ****!
And where do you get this information? Source?
My name is Barbara Fritts, and I am 72 years old. I have been a member of AARP since I am 50 years old. AARP backs Consumer Cellular, and I have encountered problems with this company. On or around Apr 15, 2019 I upgraded to a DORO 7050 and had problems with texting from the get-go! I had chats with customer service on-line, as well a phone calls regarding the problem of an out of control keyboard and the answers I got from them was less than desirable! I then took this phone back to Target in June 2019 to exchange for another thinking it was just a bad phone. WRONG!! I encountered the same exact problems with texting as with the first phone -- out of control keyboard!! Again, go on-line with chats and phone calls only to be told there is no way to fix this problem!! This phone cost me $50 with a year warranty, but it appears that Consumer Cellular doesn't back their warranty!! I live on only $1083/mo and $50 is a major loss for me!! I am going to have to buy another phone (and it won't be from Consumer Cellular) that will cost me at least $100 with no refund from Consumer Cellular. I filed a complaint with the BBB regarding the inferior product (DORO 7050), and Consumer Cellular never responded to this complaint! I then filed a complaint on Pissed Consumer (finding 1116 complaints filed against them) with no response from them!! They know there is a problem with this phone, but no recalls have been issued and continue to sell this piece of **** phone. I do a lot of texting, and the anger and frustration this phone has caused to me is incredible, not to mention the lack of respect this company has for senior citizens. It is my feeling that this company preys on senior citizens and doesn't give a flip with problems they encounter with their products. To know that AARP backs this company is alarming, as you too are geared only towards senior citizens. When it comes time to renew my membership with AARP, I will not be doing so as I do not want to be involved with a company that backs such a company as Consumer Cellular.
There should be no reason a person should be placed on hold for over an hour. Still have not been able to reach anyone in your refund department. Terrible business practices. . When called to book through AARP the representative answered in 1 minute. Is there a number to the refund department where a person actually answers the phone!
On 7-9-19, I attempted to process a premier roadside assistance membership with AARP, I had trouble checking out because link never provided a member number. Several calls made to the number provided ((PHONE)) on the site but all of the (7) representatives, I spoke was unable to tell me of the status or provide me with my member number. I gave the representative my number but still she was unable to tell me the status of the enrollment. This experience is extremely unacceptable and I hope this issue will be investigated.
I have tried to speak with a supervisor at AARP for several weeks. I am told 24-48 hrs.
and no one returns a phone call. Customer service is of no help and quite rude. I have been an AARP member for 12 years + should not be left hanging for weeks + weeks.
Make sure if you do not want this company to take money from your account or card to tell them they do not ask they just do it. ITS THEFT without written consent. They just did this to me the 7th time and its posting me off with how this company and all its affiliates take assumption upon themselves to do whatever to get th ed most money from you as they can.
Please know that when you sign up for AARP you will start receiving a glut of solicitations from other companies and non-profit organizations. Even if you "opt out" and ask AARP to not share your personal information.
Will do sir thanks
Please update this page as Barry Rand is deceased.
What are engaements?
Totally. The April issue of their **** bulletin says it all and wants anyone over 50 (remember, AARP REDUCED THE AGE TO JOIN FROM 55 TO 50) TO COMPLY WITH BIOMETRICS AND THE COVER PAGE is disgusting. They think that we're a bunch of impish tools that will abide by whatever they dictate. Now, I know! AARP IS A DICTATORSHIP & USE OUR MONEY FOR THEIR AGENDA! Yep, I said it, and I am pi**ed off. They seethe acrimony and that's obvious as when you finally get a hold of someone, you can hear their disdain leeching through the wires.
BOYCOTT AARP!!!! BOYCOTT AARP!!! BOYCOTT AARP!!!!
We should do a National Boycott!!!!!!!! Show power vis-a-vis our SPENDING/CURRENCY/SAVINGS POWER! Boycott AARP RAND...HE'S A TOOL!
I find your AARP BULLETIN April 2019 | VOL.60 | No. 2 | $2.50 issue's cover to be a COMPLETE JOKE, AND I RESENT THAT YOU & YOUR ILK THINK THAT WE, THE PEOPLE ARE IGNORANT TO BIOMETRICS.
Do you have one, Mr. Rand? Pray tell. You & AARP expect THE BABY BOOM GENERATION TO FALL FOR YOUR BS, AND MEEKLY COMPLY? Let me tell you, "YOU GOT ANOTHER THING COMING!"
Called your office repeatedly, and how aprops tat you have someone with an accent to answer your BOGUS LINE OF COMMUNIQUE! You think that we don't know the score when we were the ones that were told to implement that BS in the 70s, 80s, 90s, and still going on? How ignorant of you, Mr. Rand.
Your organization sucks mega wad in a camel chewing ball, and may all the Camels in the World spew and spit on you and your ilk including your FAKE **** ORGANIZATION. MY DAD WHOM SERVED IN TWO (I'll be nice) "Engaements" as you sorry liberals now deem World Wars perpetrated (do your homework) by a bunch of **** pale war Puppets.
Done with this organization. On another note, I personally spoke with representatives regarding renewals, and paid the money and was assured that renewal (2019) would be for myself & my partner, yet, I only received benefits when I paid for them directly form your advertisements aired during November 2018 through February, 2019, and he has yet to receive his, and this is the second year in a row. You have sold me a a never-ending story of promises and lies in order to get your subscription fees, and never coughed up what is advertised on TV. Shame on you.
For AARP'S failure to deliver on their promises, I am taking this time to put AARP on Notice that I will file a Class Action Suit imminently. Best regards, CA Virgo This is a public Notice.
