Why has this question never been answered by AARP?  How do people accumulate 200,000 points and more when the total of all points available is much less than that?  Where are they getting the points?  Once you take all the quizzes you can only get 100 points or less a day so it is impossible to accumulate that many points.  What is the trick.  Don't send me to the FAQs page.  That does not address this question.

@cwesthuis, the daily login reward for members is 75. The non-member daily login is 50.  If you're a member and not getting the 75 daily login points, call 1.888.687.2277 and talk with a representative who can review your account.

Thank you. Just noticed that the daily log in reward went down to 50 pts. (Was 75 pts.)  Going to take even longer to accumulate enough points to bid on the high end items, when people are winning with 2225,000 points or more. Does anyone know if at some time in the past, Rewards for Good allowed for faster accumulation of points? That's the only explanation for individuals having these huge point pools with which to bid. Wish AARP would be up front as to how these Auction bidders accumulated point totals of over 200,000 points when daily activities can only earn approximately 150 points. It's only been in existence about a year so someone please do the math and explain this to us. I am not trying to stir up trouble - just looking for an honest answer.

Here are some tips/observations that may help somebody.

 

If you go to your account listing which details your points history... ( https://rewards.aarp.org/gateway?t=myaccount ), and look it over, you can start to tell which quizzes or calculators are daily and weekly.

 

For example, it looks like the below are daily:

Health Encyclopedia 15 daily

Drugs A - Z 15 daily

Drug Interaction Checker 15 daily

Symptom Checker 6 daily

Recipes Search 30 daily

Social Security Q&A Tool 30 daily

Job Search tool 30 daily

 

So that is 141 daily points.

 

I suspect you could similarly check your points history to figure out which ones are weekly points, and which are monthly points.

 

Probably some things change, and new quizzes and calculators get added. But this might help some of the frustration of feeling like a person has to constantly click through everything.
