Hey there Marylin
I discovered & posted about "Hello World" they were brought out by "The Merkle Group" in 2018 ... my digging into info came from Andrew & Lucy posting change to Merkle in the "official rules " so really think they made change to name cause so many having issues with Hello... but they didn't fool us long. They one & same
Have to say Hello isn't bad in all they do they handle Coca-cola Rewards which offered lots nice things & chances to win b4 pandemic but Coca-cola is a big company
I think AARP is huge also but maybe not willing to spend so much??? Its anybody's guess
At start of New Rewards our Welcome email told us that "points would expire if no activity in 6 months" plus it was in offical rules which several of us(Andrew/ Lynn/ Hokie/ myself & ect) read early on .... This was really good I figured & knowing this info is why I came to checkin if only to get Daily 15 points cause that equaled 'activity' & I would check the daily (lose as u say & I agree) item see if was Amazon
I was very upset with doing the extras to get a August Extra Credit reward....I wanted the free for points only Chili's card...did the required quiz/videos stepped away only briefly came back was gone which stinks didn't even last a day.... was there b4 did required stuff gone after completed🤯... truly I'm thinking its a scam... I've read that others had this experience 😨 I wonder is it gone for folks who've not done extras?? Please share cause I'm curious... thanks
& I feel same as so many folks who've stated buying one with $2 off is not worth the credit card transaction
I've read others lots of y'all sharing about things going fast that proved it to me
So I'm grateful haven't invested the time I used to
& wonder what they really hope to accomplish by this new set of rules...its sad and so disappointing truly I don't think I ever got over disappointment from them taking away old rewards plus the sucky(25K) amount of Points they gave me as reward for my loyalty and commitment to program.... sorry for gripes ... such a bummer the things they do
Maybe they'll offer more for all of you who've been active and earning millions points.... y'all deserve it & should be rewarded for efforts... guess can hope til hope is lost
It makes me curious if once again they are trying to let go of Rewards???
Again its anybody's guess
Enjoy your week!
