Hi Ray , same here....Everyday is the same story , same water bottle, same pill-box, same photobook, same golf balls etc.etc....Nothing new or interesting for points only redemptions...Let's hope that something nice will come available for the next holidays !!!!!
Two months in the new program , lot points accumulated.....Nothing to go for it except few sweepstakes and the daily instant win....
One good note to share is that i actually won a $15 Uber card on the daily instant win few days ago..
This new version of the AARP Rewards still has some kinks being ironed out. There are mixed feelings about the Rewards themselves, as well as the usability of how the Rewards program is being presented.
Hopefully, once the presentation becomes stable, there will be more focus on higher value Rewards. My fingers are crossed for a reintroduction of auctions (hint hint, AARP).
Best way to play? Not one single answer to that, I'm afraid. Every person tends to find a way that suits them best. Some folks use multiple devices, whereas I just use the Chrome browser on a laptop.
What works for me is to run 23 videos (300 pts each) and do 2 quizzes (450 pts each). There are more than 23 videos with less than 2 mins length. You could use that to minimize the daily time if point accumulation is the primary goal.
Some people have had trouble getting points for some videos, or even any points at all on some days. Those are the growing pains of the new Rewards program.
Experiment a little with the activities, and even which browser might work better for you. There are actually some interesting little videos and quizzes, so put some dark metal on the stereo, enjoy the journey.
And always feel free to join us in our circle of pain, whining, and cursing 😋.
