AARP Sweepstakes

Message 61 of 61

I think it's time we start openly complaining about AARP's sweepstakes, in particular, the $5-10 gift card offers, where you use your points to purchase entry tickets.  When I first started, each gift card had 50 winners, then it dropped to 25, and now it's 20. I used to win a card every few months, but now it's been almost a year and I've won nothing. Plus, now they're wanting you to use 98 points instead of 49. Finally, they state that there will be 20 winners per card, which is not correct. For example, they pick 20 names, but, say, only 10 winners respond to claim their prize within the specified period of time. They don't pick 10 more names to replace the ones that didn't respond. So, in essence, only 10 people won that prize.  If we don't complain, they're going to keep reducing the number of winners and increasing the number of points you have to use. It's getting to be not worth the effort to try and win a $5 Applebee's card. What say you?
