I’m extremely disappointed! I recently won a sweepstakes for a $500 Walmart gift card. When I got the card there was only $15 on it!!! I have tried to message through the website and I keep getting responses how to joi. I want to know where the rest of the money is. I can’t get anyone to help me.

As long as winners are not contacted via telephone, that is great. This is because of the substantially increased volume of scam calls, I no longer answer calls from incoming telephone numbers that I don't know. If no messages are left, then I'll never know that I have won. Therefore, other means of contacting winners, other than telephone, are preferable. 

 

I sometimes check my SPAM box in my email just to see if relevent emails were erroneously automatically forwarded there.

If you read the rules, anyone who lives in the US and is at least 18 years old can open a free AARP account to join Rewards For Good. So, this increases the number of sweepstakes/gift card participants dramatically. Also, while other companies who sponsor sweeps do not allow their employees to enter, Reward For Good does not make this statement. Something seems a little fishy to me.

I am about to stop entering these sweepstakes. The odds must be akin to the power ball. I have been entering regularly for years and have never won one thing, not even a $10 gift card. It doesn't seem worth the effort. Rewards for good? Where are the rewards?

No sure which sweeps you're referring to. There's 2 different pages - one is where you click on "Rewards for Good" at the top of the page, and then click on Visit The Rewards Catalog." The other one, the one that usually offers bigger prizes won't be found there. At the main AARP page, scroll all the way down to the bottom and click on "Sweepstakes." That will take you to a page where you can see the latest sweeps offered. Right now, there's only one.

What happened to the page for the sweepstakes? I cannot find it anywhere. Is it already over?

You’re right that we made some changes to our sweepstakes recently. We noticed that our higher value featured sweepstakes received more participation than our weekly sweepstakes. With this information, we decided to beef up the value and number of our featured sweepstakes each month. You might have noticed we added one more featured sweepstakes in the month of January compared to December.

 

We’re constantly working to find the right mix of rewards for our Rewards for Good participants. Your feedback is incredibly helpful to us and we will keep it in mind as we plan future sweepstakes prizes for the program.
