All,

 

By the by, I'm on track to break 700,000 points this Sunday. With lots of clicking and dedication, you can earn oodles of points. Finding something you want to spend them on, well, that's different. LOL.

Good Morning Reward for Good point earners! Smiley Happy

 

I just earned 450 points on a new-ish task. Actually, the Dancing Through The Decades Quiz is an old task that has been updated. There are, as you can see below, no indications that this task is ready to give points, other than the fact that it has just been placed at the bottom of the middle column in the Be In The Know section. In my expereince, when a task is moved (or, as in this case, reappears) it will give points. So I checked and sure enough: 450 extra points are available. Go get em! Smiley Happy

Does anyone think we'll be able to do the auctions again or is this a waste of time on rewards for good.  If anyone from AARP reads this I would like your opinnion because the way it is going now it's only for the people who have figured out some way of getting all of those xtra points.

@HokiePoq Really, bids are that nutzo still? Ugh. Wish I could wave a magic wand and fix the problem, but I can't, so here's me telling you tell you man live, I hear ya. 

 

Epster, hoping for lower auctions bids

@HokiePoq  After today's 2000+ point earning I have 681,000 points. And nothing to spend them on. LOL.

I don't know what they were thinking by changing the auctions like that...totally putting the honest folks out of business.  I had won several auctions over a period of time, all of them the short term ones like Wednesday afternoon ones as I've never had hundreds of thousands of points.  I did check the auctions very frequently in hopes of the power play coming up for the day.  Now there is no point, power play or not.   The new way only makes it easy for someone who is getting points in ways not listed on the page AARP lists all the time,   If you work as hard as @Epster does, you don't throw down hundreds of thousands of points for a $5-10 gift card.  Sorry you won't be posting again.  I can't imagine this change is generating more clicks for advertising purposes, either.   While I used to be on the auction page very frequently....every 15 minutes if I was home all day...now there are 0 clicks by me.

I will not be posting again.  Apparently they aren't goint to go back to the old way of auctions where everyone could play and now only a handful can.  The same thing I saw on the sweepstakes most of the winners were from down south or New York.  I don't know how they are doing this.  I've also noticed on some of the big items in the sweepstakes that they say pending and never seem to have a winner.  If someone doesn't acknowledge it after a month or two they should pick someone else.  Who is getting these prizes?  Good luck to everyone, I don't even know if anyone cares about our opinions about this and for some reason they think it's fair.

@bw508  That's the Money Saving Skills Quiz under the Save More section on the earning page.  This quiz currently renews on Sunday and the first of each month.
