The Benefits of AARP on Oxygen Concentrators

If you are over the age of 50, it might be worth it to you to become an AARP member (American Association of Retired Persons). They offer healthcare benefits, auto insurance, travel benefits, as well as other discounts that help retired and elderly citizens of the US.

If you need an oxygen concentrator, you can get a discount in our store if you are an AARP member. In addition to our already incredibly low prices on new oxygen concentrators and accessories, you can get even more shaved off of the price by signing up with AARP.

It only costs $16 to join or renew a membership if you're over the age of 50. If you're under 50, you can still become a member if you pay a small monthly fee. With the addition of the AARP member discount, plus our already low prices and finance plans, we make purchasing an oxygen concentrator as painless as possible.

Great for Travel as an AARP Member

It can be a double whammy of discounts and benefits if you love to travel, or if you are planning on going on a vacation with your family. With the travel benefits of being an AARP member, you can also get a portable oxygen concentrator at a much lower rate.

Our portable oxygen concentrators are FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) approved. This means they were found to be safe to be used during a flight, and they can be used on any flight going to or from the United States.

However, you always need to check with your airline to be sure your portable oxygen concentrator is approved by the airline. You will also need to follow their specific regulations, which usually includes a written statement from your doctor.

They always require you to plan ahead, so they can make sure the proper accommodations are met for you. A portable oxygen concentrator, carry bag, mobile cart and other supplies are also not counted as carry-on.

You can check the AARP discounts page on their website to check out all the benefits in planning your trip, as well as discounts at many of the major hotels and resorts. There might be a discount through your airline, as well as discounts with cruises and tours you might be interested in. An affordable portable oxygen concentrator can make this all possible!

If you are 50 or older, becoming an AARP member can help make your life easier and more fun. You've worked hard and lived a good life so far, and there's no reason you should stop now. It's easy and cheap to join, and the benefits are more than worth it to get the freedom of a portable oxygen concentrator.

    My father had lung cancer and lost some of his lung capacity. Apparently Medicare will either pay for home and portable oxygen. But the local supplier put him in a portable oxygen tank style unit (heavy. 15lbs full for 3 hrs) instead of a lightweight portable concentrator (2-5lbs). Apparently the local provider makes more money selling / refilling the home oxygen tank used to refill the portable tank. Is there a way he can switch to a light weight portable concentrator under Medicare ? The price is pretty much prohibitive on his social security and he can’t work to supplement his income in his condition (84 yrs old, bad rheumatoid arthritis, blood thinners from two past heart attacks, bladder removed from bladder cancer, etc. brittle bones in his back make it tough to wear 15lbs - 20lbs over his shoulder). He is a veteran from after WWII. Tough old guy active all his life - and is only happy when active. Anything we can do to allow him to have more mobility in his last few years. He can still drive, likes to fish, and wants to continue to mow his own law. Staying in the house is depressing and a definite quick death sentence. Thanks. Sam Jr

      First and foremost, thank you to your father for his service. And thank you for contacting us. Unfortunately, your experience with the Medicare solution is pretty typical. Because the provider is giving your father tanks, it is unlikely they will provide him with a portable. Please contact if you have any other questions and we will gladly assist.
