I periodically get an offer to join AAII. Does anyone have any experience with it? Good, bad, or indifferent? It's an advertisement to join up, but is it different from any other newsletter that's being hawked?
Have no frame of reference, so I'm throwing it out to any one out there who's been involved with AAII, knows someone who has, or whatever.
Just looking for some opinions.

There are a lot more active investors at AAII than here. I'm an active investor myself (trend follower), but I prefer the depth of knowledge and tenor of the Bogleheads forum to others I've seen.

AAII is into investor education and is not a newsletter. It is worth subscribing too.I have been a life member since the mid 1980's. Their articles are not in depth but do provide a good overview of many subjects related to personal finance and investing. They also have a good web site.

I'm an AAII subscriber. It is geared toward investor education. If i were younger than I am, I'd buy a lifetime subscription. Maybe I'll gift one to my 18-year old nephew.

I've had a life subscription since the mid-80s. Back then there were a lot of articles about index investing, the importance of low costs, etc. Nowadays, they seem to be more into stock-picking/screening. There's not much that interests me anymore. But I still get the Journal for free.

I became a lifetime member when I was in my late teens (I'm in my mid 40's now) and enjoy reading the articles in the Journal.
