AARP Rewards - What should a new member expect



I recently became an AARP Member and I'm trying out the website.

I'm being 'invited' to join this AARP Rewards loyalty program, but even after reading the description, it isn't clear what the benefits are and if there are any downsides that would cause me to regret joining.


What exactly are the "points" worth?  do these expire if not redeemed?

I don't mind earning points by playing games or viewing videos, but I don't want to sign up if it means getting a lot of 'junk' emails promoting this and that as a result of signing up.

Someone kindly posted a reply to my post (Thank You NicoleW518772 !).  This my first topic, so forgive me if I'm clueless about how this community forum works.  The link in the e-mail I received from AARP when Nicole replied to my post.  Doesn't work, I get "Access Denied".  And why isn't the reply visible following my original post?  What am I missing?  Are there multiple communities?  This is quite unintuitive ...
