Re: Disappointed in the new rewards program

No Auctions and can win only one sweepstake a month.  Who would be happy with the changes?

Hello Rewards Warriors,

@AARPDianaG Is it normal for member post and all Tags to be removed from Community after maintenance?  I'm curious because there are previous post and tags that can't be found, including with a Search.

Would be helpful if Community knew how to find.

Thanks

I am definitely not happy. Have been a member since 1999 and this new program is the pits.  I will probably give up my membership when it expires.

Super Contributor

most of us not happy with the new program

but

does anyone at AARP CARE OR WANT TO IMPROVE 

let the contract to a company with a better program/system

Hello everyone 😁 hope everyone is doing well. Yes, like the majority of us I believe . I can only speak for myself, my belief is that the organization that is supposed to be looking out and speaking up for our Well Being, is only looking out for their own well being. These Directors and Tech people ( I don't think they know half the time what they're doing ) are paid hefty salaries. Plus bonuses for soliciting clients that only benefit their pockets. C'mon, these rewards for points is a Slap in our Faces. People are constantly having problems with the site. What's up with this so called Maintenance. After they finish rigging the ( Sorry , Try again Tomorrow ) we seem to have problems. AARP needs to be more Transparent about the so called winners. We as members have to pay for membership and  non members ( age 13 to 49 I believe I might be wrong about the 49, but the 13 is correct ) don't pay a penny to win Instant Win and Sweepstakes. Myself, once my subscription is up in March, I'm done with AARP. I'm just saying 🤗

I think the rewards program with AARP is ridiculous. I’d gladly give up all my points (135,000 + until they keep deducting for not using) for any fair product that doesn’t require any cash from me (eg discount purchasing)   I’d be ok at 1%+  value for actual rewards.

@HAGERVON You can review the terms and conditions located at the bottom of the Redeem tab on AARP Rewards: https://www.aarp.org/about-aarp/rewards-terms-and-conditions/sweeps-rules/ Once you select the sweepstakes, you will have the option to view the winner list.

That link leads to a list of the Sweepstakes, each having separate terms and conditions. 

 

Like other Terms and Conditions of the AARP website, those Sweepstakes Terms seem to have been intentionally composed by a lawyer, for a lawyer, and are printed in a way to discourage them from being read. They are in the smallest, hardest to read  font size and tyoeface used anywhere on the site.

At the bottom of the Redeem page you'll see Sweepstakes and Instant Win rules. Tap the Sweepstakes one and it will take you to a page with all the Sweepstakes. Then tap the one you want to see. At the bottom of that page you'll see a link for a list of the Winners. 

I used to belong to VipVoice and some of the names of the Winners on that site seems to me that they are also on these list of Winners. One day I'm going to compare the Winners on both list because I could swear I've seen some of the same names on both list. I'm just saying

  1. I agree. The rewards program is terrible. I should not have to use my points to just enter to win gift cards that do not amount to anything. Plus most of the good selections are sold out. I do not plan to accumulate any more points, because it is not worth my time.

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.

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,

 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.

That’s what happened to me, said not available and that all remaining points were put in a sweepstakes, explained the points were applied to the magazine and didn’t show as remaining points. So not entered in a sweepstakes, she was unable to comprehend what I was saying.

@gm5271 

I believe that it may have been a daily deal for points only, although I can't find a confirmation in any of my folders.  WIthout this written note, I wouldn't be able to determine the redemption date.  I hope you get your first issue soon.  I remember that the magazine seemed slow to start, and I wish I could be of more help.

1. click on transaction history

2. open up redemption history, it shows all transactions(daily sweepstakes, redeemed pionts for purchased or point redemptions, etc.) from when aarp rewards started last year
