Rewards page not working since Sept, 1st 2021

Has anyone else had problems earning or redeeming points for the past 2 weeks ?

Contributor

I called 9/13 said report was made usual 3-5 business days. Called back this am first was told no report made than was told Friday it was "escalated to a supervisor" another 3-5 days. If you do get an email for any reason it is an automated general response. So much for customer service. I'm paid thru 10-31 and after 14+ years will not renew. It is almost impossible to redeem monthly points so they "expire" Whole program screws their members. AARP = Another Associated Ripoff Program in my opinion.

I wish AARP can give us a straight answer and not give us excuses !

I am having the same problem since Sept 1 also.  I have contacted them via Twitter.  Their latest response is: "We are working to resolve this issue. You may try using an incognito window. If the issue persists, please try again later. We apologize for the inconvenience. -BW"

 

Using an Incognito window did NOT fix my problem.

I've been calling them everyday for the past week, very frustrating indeed, 14 days and they don't seem to have a fix for this is pretty lousy. I can log in to the rewards page but that's about it, no earning or redeeming is possible, keeps telling "my session has expired and please log in and refresh". All I know is that they will owe me lots of points once this is resolved since I can't earn my 7,500 daily max points.

And you really expect them to give you all those points when you consider how effective they have been fixing the problem in the first place?  😜  Thanks for keeping on them for a fix!

This is the error I get for the past two weeks when trying to redeem points  "We apologize for the inconvenience, your session has expired. Please login to proceed." Back around Sept 5th they did give me 3 days worth of max points (7,500 X 3)

AARP's reply to me letting them know Incognito didn't work: "Thanks for getting back to us. We will continue working to resolve the issue and apologize for the inconvenience. If I can answer anything about membership or benefits, I'm always here to help! -Brittney W."

I called today and talked to Mike in AARP Rewards.  I was told this is a "known problem" and I should try it again later today or tomorrow.  I should also "clear my history for the past 2 weeks" (because it worked so well the first time I did it).  Sorry if I don't have a lot of faith in this "solution".  ☹️

Any new updates on the rewards program being down ???

Periodic Contributor

Thank you for the escalation.  Is this different than the escalation from 9/7?

NO, i was told today by a AARP rewards rep that there is a system wide outage that they are aware of. Very frustrating since i haven't been able to earn points since Sept, 1st

@a862639l Let's get to the bottom of this. I have sent your complaint about the site to our escalations team so they can look into your earn and redeem issues. Please allow up to 3-5 days for a response via email.
