The Daily Deal should be called the DAILY FRAUD. AARP probably has 10 gift cards for 1 million people. It's really sad that an organization that is supposed to be benefitting seniors tries to trick them in coming to their site to buy something under the false pretenses of giving away something for free. SHAME ON YOU AARP.

I have gotten some recently as well.   There are times the site is either overloaded or malfunctioning and the circle appears.   If that happens at Daily Deal time the good ones will be gone.   After the redoing of the site it never worked for me.   Lately it has been working.   I don't know if browser type has anything to do with it working or not.   I'm using Chrome and it works with Chrome.

I have had the same experience.  The site is full of glitches, and there’s no way to get any satisfaction.  Extremely frustrating!

Totally agree with you.  I don’t even try to do the daily deals any more but there is no way we are going to get the deals, except for the magazines.  However, with the magazines I put in name and address I want them to go to and then when I hit place order, it totally puts in a different name and address and then AARP says it can’t be changed. So it goes to someone I don’t want it to go to.  However the worst is their Games where now I can’t play most of the games I could play before but they said they do not know how to fix that either.

My experience: sat and waited for the countdown clock to hit zero. When it did so, I immediately attempted to purchase the deal (Walmart gift card). It told me it was sold out. Yeah, right. In less than one second. This is not the first time I've tried this. Two toppers: I attempted, using the contact form, to complain about this and clicking the "submit" button did absolutely nothing. Could not contact them via their contact form. Second: I called them and got a VERY rude woman who told me there was no such thing as a "daily deal" and that I must have been at some scam site. Incredible. A system that doesn't work and people who are extraordinarily rude to their customers.

I've discovered after being a member for 4 years that AARP is in the business of ripping off seniors by any means necessary!!

@tesuga 

Yes Same thing happened for me Was very freaky Showed offer for moment then no matter what did could not get back to rewards page I tried different ways but the whole rewards section was not working could still do quizzes and later noticed got points rewarded for ones done 

For whatever reason the site was messed up Don't think be because gift card deal cause never seen this happen this way before 

Also I too noticed it came back online & available later & folks were able to get the deal 

About year ago the Daily Deal page locked up and didn't get fixed till about hour before the next day's deal started but only that page stuck could still access other Rewards options 

I will say I am online watching Daily Deal most everyday & when offer is one I desire I have gotten most deals I'm interested in. So personally I feel for the site to mess up two times within a year is not bad since nothing is perfect.

@sc8714 

So SC hopefully you'll give it another try and have better luck and experience in future 

Good luck,

Hey there,

 

Just adding some additional info about yesterday's $10 Target E-card Daily Deal...

My sister and I were logged-in ready to go for the Deal also.

At the beginning, she said she got one in her cart... but then it said it was no longer available.

 

At that time, the system/site appeared to have some major problems as we got the same

endless 'circling dots'. (Likely the site was overwhelmed by people trying for the Deal).

We logged out, but were unable to log in again until about an hour later.

 

It was probably not until then that the site managers were able to reboot the Deal.

The Deal became available again for a little while after that.

 

I know it doesn't help with your frustration, but I thought I'd share what we experienced yesterday.

 

Regards,

 

- T -

People actually manage to get in?  I've been sitting here for 20 minutes watching dots circle around and around on an otherwise blank screen no matter how much I refresh.  Not the first time that's happened, either.  It it's not a scam, AARP needs to update its servers so that they don't slow down or crash every time large numbers of users attempt to hit their Daily Deals page.  Extend the time they're available, make more quantities available, whatever they have to do to stop p***ing people off.  I've yet to even connect to their site to try to score a deal.  Frankly, I'm done.

Call AARP about that.  When I did they helped me alot.  I sat in front of the computer and was ready to send the item to my cart and nothing happened.  The AARP lady helped me "clear" my computer and it worked great.
