Re: Are "Points Only" Gift Cards Gone Forever?

@gm5271   You encouraged me to continue with Coke Rewards.  I did mostly losing in the instant lose games but recently they had a free AMC offer.  You entered codes to get free tickets, popcorn and drinks at AMC.   First real offer since they downgraded the program.   I did the $2 Target offer but the link they sent did not work.  I complained to no avail.   Mostly a waste but maybe I'll stop the instant lose things and  save in case an offer like this one that just ended comes up again.

Hello @gm5271 

Ginger, I've discovered that the Winners List for the Daily Instant Wins aren't accurate.  So how are we to really know who the Winners really are?  Are the names being made up?

 

Have a Blessed Day,

Marylin

Hey indeed

Old Coke Rewards was really great I spent lots of time for many years entering codes always maximum limit got lots of nice Coke items couldn't get anywhere else....definitely no longer same Now you can enter same sip & scan picture 100's of times rarely have a offer need code for I still keep few can codes & don't understand why they even bother with having codes in bottles Its very different & rarely offers anything can just get.... just alot of scan for Instant wins so sadly seems R4G has now become the same kinda site Smiley Sad

Enjoy your Sunday

I agree completely.  I use to use the coke rewards program too.  I saved up enough points to get my son a basketball, some $5.00 gift cards & a few other prizes.  After hearing that the new AARP  Rewards & Coke Rewards are run by the same company, I can now easily understand.  Both sites are dissappointing to say the least.

@mi4090 @andrewtoo 

Andrew & Marylin

Ditto! 

I get they didn't like all the fussing coming from folks issues with Daily Deal so ok its gone 

So my strong suggestion is this: since they now state number of prizes 150 goes thin in day with 1000+'s trying So do your Instant Win with greater odds by having at least 4 offered each day once 1 has given its limit of winners start another this way they'll be going off all through day at various times This would increase foot traffic on site & also give folks who can't stay on all day chances to win..... that's what I'd call a "Floating Deal" which is what we were told was coming 

Whatcha think Teri? @AARPTeri how about making this reality? 

Thanks

@andrewtoo 

Andrew, thanks so much.  We should be allowed to try at least (4) times daily with different prizes.  Ability to earn all kinds of points and nothing to use them on.

 

Have a Blessed Day,

Marylin

Congrats on your instant win!  They should have several daily and weekly instant wins, I think.

@HokiePoq 

Hokie. ...☹ Ditto to all you said I don't see any reason to put much time into new program Don't like it don't care to invest time also don't like videos & if you leave 1 second b4 end NO points tested it 

Also when I 1st saw new site I thought oh my they've done same as Coca-cola Rewards program did... well did some checking Both run by same company "Hello World"

After you told me while back about some things on Coca-cola site I checked it out so I go there on occasion But I've not won any of the "instant"wins there I did get a Shutterfly Book coupon for my DIL she loves those & for 5 codes well worth that few mintues

I keep coming to AARP Rewards think mostly out of habit...its been a bitter pill for me adapting no longer have any reason be on site at 3pm I truly miss Daily Deal & don't think anything they are offering will come close to what we had 😛

Guess as I continue to work on letting it go can adapt to checking in every once in awhile.... hard habit to break after years of coming here. 

 

I'm not upset with AARP they made this decision for some reason & I still believe they offer alot & lot can still learn from Main site Rewards just not the same & since same folks as Coke don't have much hope for getting anything back we've lost hopefully there will be new members that enjoy new site cause just as with Coke they don't know what used to be therefore nothing to miss as we old timers of sites are aware of 

Enjoy what you can Its been alot of blessings while had it

Take care enjoy your weekend

Hello @HokiePoq 

I agree completely about nothing to use points for.  The site has problems and issues with points not being awarded and being taken when Daily Instant Wins/Losses not available (i.e. Google Mini).  Did you submit points for the Google Mini and how many points was it showing for you?

I've used points on a couple of occasions to try and win a Daily Instant Win and felt there was some trick to winning. 

Today at 1:48a CT I won the $5 Amazon Digital Card for 50 points and I did win  (3) Daily Deals at the end of R4G.  CVS, Best Buy & Amazon, all for $5, if they close it want be a great loss.  I've already used CVS, and saving Best Buy and Amazon for holiday shopping.  Collecting all the Amazon's I can get, I get more and larger valued ones from another site I'm a member of.

I hate you misplaced your $25 gift cardSmiley Sad

Hopefully you can win a Daily Instant WinSmiley Happy Now it seems that points are worth .10 cents instead of .01 cts. in R4G.

 

Have a Blessed Day,

Marylin

@mi4090   Right now I am only seeing a water bottle, a yoga mat and golf balls for points.   Those are not bad.....if you want any of those which I don't.

On the first day I saw a $10 Uno gift card which I regret not getting.   It soon disappeared.

I have wasted points each day on the "instant lose" games.  If there was anything to save points for, I wouldn't waste them like that.  So far nothing.

Has anyone here won?   I think the person who complained about being restricted to one win but not being prevented from spending points on additional attempts might have....

There seems to be lots of ways to earn points but no reason to have points.  I've done a quiz or two each day to offset the losses but not motivated to get the 7K allowed.  Hate videos but would endure them if there was any reason to have the points.

Another thing:   Instant "win" games versus daily deal:   Daily Deal rewarded persistance and dedication.  I got a number of them over the years.   I have never won an instant game on any website and have tried on several.     I can only assume somone wins.  There does not appear to be any listing of winners of the prizes.   On the old program we could see who won and that provided accountability.   When the auctions changed  format a couple of years ago, persistance no longer mattered.   Most of my wins over the years have been on things that required time and dedication.  I see no need for either on the new program.  I don't have a device to sync for the fitness tasks...and there is no motivation to spend a lot of $$$ for one when there is no reward other than points which appear not to gain one much reward.

On the Ulta game:   At the end when you lose you are offered to buy the $75 card for the discount price of $75!!!!  I have commented on gift cards before.   They are simply not worth buying  Why would anyone buy a card for a discount of two dollars?   This benefits the sellers because there will be slippage.....cards bought but not redeemed.   I have stopped doing rebates that give you cards that are difficult to redeem.  Nearly killed me to lose one worth $25 but I misplaced it until it expired.

Another tip:   Use any gift cards you may have.   Some stores are rumored to be in financial trouble.  If they go bankrupt gift cards will not be honored.   I used most of the two best cards I ever got today at one store.  I got two sets of towels  and a wreath for the door thanks to AARP Rewards for Good.
