16. Careful on those hotel discounts. True story. We were headed to
DC from MA and by the time we reached Delaware, we were tired. We had sat in our car for hours in a traffic mess in NY. Usually the trip used to take us 11 hours with a couple of rest stops.

Anyway, went to one hotel that looked OK, asked price of room. $85.00. Then my husband asked about a AARP discount, was quoted $125.00. I kid you not. Of course, our next question was, how could that be and we were told it is because they contract with AARP on rates and settle on a price for the "discount". Always ask what a room rate is before you ask about an AARP rate. This same thing happened to my sister in Georgia.

I belong now but I don't know why. And--please tell me why they send me a bill for renewal in June when my membership goes through October? This has been happening for years.

I think I will not renew this year. I don't really need anything they offer. Cheap or not, a penny saved etc.
