AARP has always been transparent regarding this per our terms of service for the program.


I do have one question, @AARPTeri .

 

AARP always had a THIRD PARTY VENDOR operating the coupon "book" section of THE REWARDS FOR GOOD PROGRAM (ie. the restaurant coupons and such).

 

Will AARP continue to use that same THIRD PARTY VENDOR with its new program?


@AARPTeri, it has been several days since I posed the above question.

 

Several others postulated I wouldn't get a response and it seems they are right.

 

Will the same THIRD PARTY VENDOR be involved with the new AARP REWARDS?????

Not sure about other people ... but ... the end of AARPTeri's post reads like "you're right, but we won't admit it ... and we're dumping the old program".  Am I misreading it?

 

 

Teri ... you know you're wrong, of course.  (Unless you're education impaired?)

AARP has warned members about precisely the same kind of scams: apparent discounts to encourage seniors to buy things for more money than they're worth.

 

If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and rips your money off like a duck ....

We appreciate your feedback however, AARP Rewards for Good program promotes learning opportunities for our members and in no way is scamming users.  Reward for Good points have no cash value. AARP has always been transparent regarding this per our terms of service for the program. We are sorry to hear that you are not satisfied with this free program, we hope you will enjoy the new AARP Rewards launching later this month.

Hello @ssieler ,

I don't believe that would get any attention, thus reporting them to themselvesSmiley LOL  Like reporting the federal government to the federal government.

But, I actually tried filing a complaint with the BBB who refused to do anything, probably getting kickbacks to silence complaintsSmiley Sad

Reminds me of the movie, "Too Big to Fail" , it's a DC thingSmiley Sad  What seniors have to go through and deal with is a sad state of affairs these daysSmiley Sad

 

Have a Blessed Day,

Marylin

We probably should each call the AARP scam reporting line (the "AARP Fraud Watch Network")

at 877-908-3360 and report the scam.

 

Or, report the AARP Rewards for Good scam online at:

https://www.aarp.org/money/scams-fraud/tracking-map/

 

Note, the scam description is limited to a very small amount of characters ... 

shame on you, AARP IT group, shame!
