I am also disappointed in the new rewards program.  There are many reasons that I am disappointed.  One reason is the "Filter By" to earn points.  The Themes are okay.  My problem is with the "Sort By" either Recommended or Point Value.  I keep having to page down to find videos or quizzes that I have not completed.  It gets old to page down and page down.  It would be great to have only the videos or quizzes that I have not completed come up first.  Or I would like to have additional filters. 

 

Also, after I finish a video or quiz, I have to click on Redeem, go back to that page and click on Earn, and then go through all the filters again.  Gets very old.  It would be nice to go back to what I had filtered before completing a quiz Instead of going through the whole process again.  It is really just a waste of time.

 

I also find the Rewards lacking.  I liked the old Auctions.  At least I had some chance of winning something.  Although I really objected to the tier policy on the old Rewards for Good.  I shouldn't have had to "pay" more for an auction only because I had "saved' points for quite a while. 

 

On the new program, showing all gift cards that you can buy, is not a Reward to me.  I am probably never going to win a Sweepstakes.  I haven't yet.  The items to spend your points on, such as a water bottle, do not interest me.  Therefore, only the Daily Instant Win, or perhaps the Weekly Instant Win, is of interest to me.  And some of the items on the Instant Win, are not for me especially if there is not a store in my area in which to use the gift card.  Other than the Instant Wins, I am wasting my time.  I may be learning a few things on the quizzes and videos, but that is probably it.  I hope some changes will be made to the new program.

 On the old program, My daughter and I had to each ordered with points the weight watchers magazine. Just checked on that because didn’t receive. Customer service said it’s no longer available. It’s all those points are gone through no fault of our own.

Hello @BettyB374802 

Yes you're right, I posted about Points Only deals at the beginning of this hyped up New AARP Rewards program that wasn't ready to be released.  Hopefully they will get it right soon.

 

Have a Blessed Day,

Marylin

There’s also no rewards to speak of for points only.  The discounts offered on merchandise are ridulous. Saw one tonight the value was 25$, discounted price the same amount, Miss the variety and entertainment of the old rewards.

I got a lot of free magazines, but I understood it would be quite a few weeks before we would be getting them. I have lost track to know when they will be coming, but I will pay attention now. As of today, no magazines.

The new rewads aren't rewards at all. Mostly gift cards. Where are all the good daily deals that used to be available?
