145,010 rewards points for a sandwich? (With DAYS to go before the auction ends, no less!) Sorry, but that's insane!

 

If they bought a $10 Panera gift card using 500 rewards points they'd get the card for $5 cash (plus those rewards points) thus realizing a 50% discount on their sandwich for clicking around. And they'd have 144,510 points left over.

$10 Panera Gift Card Auction Amount 145,010 Points!

What regular AARP member who has worked hard to slowly gather points would bid 145,010 points for a $10 gift card!   I can only think of one person.. an AARP employee who has gamed the system in their favor, especially with these recent auction changes!

 

Hay AARP please feel free to prove me wrong, show us for each auction which bids were placed and won by AARP employees!  And why you at it provide us the name of the accounting firm that audits the reward for good auctions so we can review their compliance findings!
