Was this issue ever resolved after speaking to a customer service person and them referring it to tech support?

Same error as everyone else. Does AARP not know or listen? This is in June 2023 and it appears to not be fixed. I have tried multiple credit cards, computers, ip addresses, paypal, clear cache cookies, cellphones and nothing. This is a problem with AARP

I am a retired IBM techie and have used online payment portals for years without problems. I just joined AARP to get these. excellently priced discount gift cards and can not yet three different credit cards to go through because of a “problem with your card payment“

I called in and I texted AARP and both are completely miffed by the fact that their payment system is not working. They will escalate, and it will take days. My bet: they will never figure it out!

If your payment did not go through, consider yourself lucky! At least you still have your money!!!!

 

I paid AARP over a week and a half ago for $2500 worth of GCs and they haven't given me squat but a hard time!!! It took a week for them to finally accept my payment, but now I can't get the product I spent a week trying to purchase!!!!!

 

When I call asking where my cards are or if can get a refund, I am told that someone will call me back. All they can say is there is a "technical issue" but no one can tell me what that issue is or offer a refund. I need the money back NOW as my payment is due in under 2.5 hours.

@DonnieB321761 Thanks for reaching out. I reviewed your account and there's actually a technical issue that's preventing you from completing your purchase. I was able to escalate this to our team for resolution and you can expect to hear back within 5 business days.

Were they able to fix the problem and if so how long does it take? I'm having the same problem.

I was able to purchase 1 carnival cruise gift card right after I joined AARP and then that was it. Now I keep getting an error stating that there is a problem. I'm doing everything the same way as the first time but I continue to get the same error.

I'm surprised no one mentioned to try another browser. If you are using Edge or Internet Explorer, try Chrome or Firefox.
