@cat0w Hm. Ok, let's compare notes. Maybe I don't need to log in and out every day to get the 75 points. Here's a screengrab of my Rewards account's earning page. This (171 points) is what I get every day but Sunday, when I earn over 2,000 points. On the First of the month I get 5,000 points, but every other day I get this:

Microsoft Edge is my main browser.

@cat0w I know others who do the same, however a person earning Rewards for Good points must sign in each day in order to receive points for that task. 

 

Also (feel free to roll your eyes) considering the apparent low level of AARP's technology, I consider it risky to leave my account open all the time.

I never sign out on Microsoft Edge, IE, Firefox or SeaMonkey so I am always signed in.

 

I did try AOL and received the time out on my first two tries but was signed in on my third time. I never saw anything about proving I was not a robot or choosing images. Below are images of my signing in on AOL. I am on my desktop computer, Windows 10 with all updates.

@mickstuder  Not just a northeast issue, I don't think. I've had the same recurring issues as the ones you describe over the past month. 

 

Here's how I've been busting through the resistance:

 

1.) Restart my browser. This usually works.

 

2.) If 1 fails, I'll restart my browser and clear my cache. This, too, usually works.

 

3. If 1 and 2 fail then I'll spend a bit of time composing a letter to a political figure. By the time I've sent that off, the AARP servers have gotten over their obstructionist behaviors and I'm in. Smiley Happy

 

That endless, useless, goes nowhere captcha routine is ridiculous, I agree.

It took 10 Minutes to Sign-in to AARP

 

1. 7 Gateway Timeouts

 

2. I had to pass the - I'm not a Robot - multiple times - with each challenge repeating the pictures over & over

 

3. There is something seriously wrong trying to Log in to AARP from the Northeast - I was on someone elses computer last week trying to Login to My Account and the same hassle

 

Fix The Server Issues - how many times to Users have to Complain before someone looks into these multiple & consistent issues?
