I save my points all year and use them to buy gift cards for a raffle we have at school… it’s my contribution

I have bought gift cards in the past, especially when there was a good daily deal.  Now my budget is so tight, I'm just trying to win gift cards to use for the holidays.

I save money by answering quizzes and earning points that I can then redeem for gift cards either for shopping or to purchase restaurant cards to give as gifts. I appreciate the opportunity to do so because it really helps take the edge off of expenses during the holiday season.

I have used rewards to buy electronic cards and sent them with personalized messages. I have also bought gift cards, entered sweepstakes, downloaded local coupons, and bought magazine subscriptions. This is a rewarding program that allows me to earn while I learn.

I look for restaurant gift cards because we tend to eat out more during the holidays.  It helps to offset the extra money we spend on gift giving.

Everyone loves gift cards, and AARP makes it easy to find the right one for everyone. I purchase gift cards for my family and faraway friends (not my "fair-weather" friends) and distribute them widely so that everyone can get a little relief from holiday shopping and treat themselves for once.

I use the points I win to get gift certificates to save on various items/thing- ie DD, CVS etc.

I have used my points that i traded for gc and gave it to my daughter to use.. Help her and her family out. Every little thing helps these days.

I've gifted magazine subscriptions for summer birthdays, looking forward to gifting more subscriptions for the holidays. Sometimes I wrap up a box with items that suggest the gift subscription, like food ingredients to symbolize a cooking magazine.  

 

I'd love to see some children's magazines included in 2023. Magazine subscriptions remind the recipient that you are thinking of them all year long. 🌲

Being disabled & only receiving SS Disability income, I use anything I win/ earn through points/prizes on AARP & other groups I belong to, for gift giving. It's a GREAT way to stretch my holiday budget (& birthday budget, as well), so it doesn't impact my regular household budget. I'm VERY grateful that organizations like AARP offer such things, as they often help so much & actually mean way more than they realize! Without them, I would NOT be able to give to all the loved ones on my list, which is the main purpose/spirit of the holiday season! So, THANK YOU for your continued generosity AARP, as it allows me to do the same for others! 🎁💗

We booked a long cruise to celebrate the holidays and getting back out there after the pandemic.  We bought cruise gift cards over a 2 month period (since limited to 5 gift card purchases per month) in order to save 10% off the already great price of the cruise.  Really helps our dollars go farther!

As a senior who lives on a very strict budget, the instant wins I have gotten by using my points are a huge bonus to my Christmas. Each time I win something, my first thought is woo-hoo-another gift I can share . Truly, greatly appreciated.
