Annoying popup ads about black Friday deals blocking view
In the last few days there are annoying popup ads about black Friday deals blocking view of both earn & redeem awards page. You have to exit out every time ....& must hit the X exactly.... which for some folks with unsteady hands, or like myself, have only one hand that I can use ....it is not so easy. More irritating is that I already renewed…& got that "speaker gift” (which btw…is useless & doesn’t work right) 😒You have to exit out every time & must hit the X exactlyI'm surprised to not see any other member mentioning this...so I hope it's not just me.
I agree with you, it is very annoying. But it also makes it harder to use this website with unsteady hands or having only one good hand so I have to manipulate the mouse &cursor ….which even without this intrusive ad is not so easy for some of us & takes extra time for every single activity whether earning or trying to redeem.
BTW: I tried your suggestion: “move your cursor off the ad and click anywhere on the page other than the ad and it goes away" but, at least for me, doesn’t make it go away…only hitting the X will….either way, we are forced to make more steps just to get it out of the way! 👎😞
Thanks for your feedback. I do have AdBlock Plus too (but it hasn’t blocked them yet) ….as well as the free NoScript (noscript.net) …so I have maximum control of every website. It takes a lot of time & patience to figure out what to allow…
also I was hoping AARP was running this for only a short time!
I tried to block the element & was successful…until I went to enter contests…it’s hard to tweak this kind of intrusive persistent ad…I’ve never had to mess with AARP sites before…I usually just let Adblock do its thing & all works fine at most websites. You have to allow some things in for the sites to work properly. Anyway I’m still trying different ways to address the issue.
Thanks for your feedback. Now I know it’s not just happening to me! 🙂
I agree with you. There is no need to repeatedly shove ads in our face …especially as it is blocking our access…. or make it harder to use this website …instead of helping us by making it easier to use!
