Combo Card

The 50+ crowd can trim down their wallets as the AARP is now combining its VISA card with its membership card. The jazzed-up card is also sporting new technology to give cardholders automatic discounts at the point-of-sale. Cardholders simply present their “AARP VISA” at Avis when renting an automobile, and receive an automatic discount. A summary of the discount will be printed on the Avis sales receipt. Avis is the first merchant to join the program and offer the new technology, but additional partners will be forthcoming. The “AARP Platinum VISA,” issued by Chase, offers a full one percent back on all card purchases. Every time cardholders accumulate 2,500 points, they may select their desired reward – $25 cash back or a $25 gift certificate to one of several merchants including gas stations, restaurants, major travel and entertainment providers and other top retailers.
