I believe AARP is going downhill in my opinion. Nothing here but the people (members) are even worth coming to this site. I quit a few years ago (the Community) because of the people that had lousy attitudes about posts. I took care of my mom and didn't have time for this site anyway. Now I'm back and I really don't know why. The Rewards for good program just isn't any good at all for most of us. As I said before why don't the offer AARP membership. That will be the day huh? Smiley Happy The games are worth playing any longer. I couldn't agree with you more. The retirement thing I did a couple of times but I won't finish it. I have done all of the things and have never won anything. Anything they have sent me was a worthless piece of junk. I once had part d with them. I had to quit it because it didn't cover my meds. I don't know why I still keep coming back. I do like the people here. shirl1669

When I first started with the Rewards for Good,  thought it would be fun...No so much anymore.  I check in on it occasionaly.  The products are too expensive even with a discount.

Most of the restaurants are too far away,  and list must not be updated, as a lot of them are out of business. 

Also the give aways(prizes)  I checked ,  and all of the results are still pending.  What is that about?

Many of the restaurants listed for my locale were in other cities and even in other states. One restaurant listed was 150 miles away from my home!!!!!!!! I conducted the previous assessment many months ago, definitely more than a year so I thought I'd conduct another assessment.

 

There are 326 entries for restaurants in the "Rewards For Good" program for my locale, at present.

 

Of these 326 entries, literally half of them are restaurants in other cities!!!!!!!!!! There were 152 of the 326 that were in other cities!!!!!!

 

Of the 152 restaurants listed in other cities, 24 of those were actually in another state!!!!!!!!!!

 

The restaurant that is 150 miles away from my home is still listed!!!!!!!!

 

This is the most worthless discount program I have ever seen. From what I have seen, all it does is generate complaints. AARP doesn't take responsibility for it because it is operated by a vender, The Entertainment Book. The Entertainment Book doesn't take responsibility for it becuase they say they are guided by what AARP tells them to do.

 

I hope our membership fees to AARP are not used to operate this STILL WORTHLESS program.

Hi couldn't agree with you more. I have points but never see anything I can afford even with the discount. 10% isn't a big savings and I think it stinks. Why don't they give you a year of AARP membership. I got that one time at Walgreens for buying a blood pressure cuff. Eye Drs. tell me is isn't enough for a discount because their discount is much better. I really don't even think to take the darn card out of my purse any longer or mention that I have one.

About 1yr ago I talked to a woman at AARP on the phone,told her I didn't want the reward coupons or points . My reasoning was most of the places offering discounts were discountined,they were located in big malls. I don't drive so that would of been difficult for me to get there. She told me if I didn't want the rewards I would have to unsubscribe from my AARP membership. I told her as nicely as I could how stupid that was,hung up.  Yes,this is a big ripoff and a joke. Sue

I have done nothing to accrue points yet I have 52,000+. I haven't used them because there isn't anything worth spending the points on. The few restaurants in my locale that have coupons in the "Rewards For Good" AND are restaurants still worth going to...... have coupons, better ones than the "Rewards For Good" program, that you can get from other venues..... and you don't have to "pay" points to get them.
