I ordered a $500 Carnival gift card on Thursday 3/30/23.  It is now over 48 hours later and I have not received an email.  I checked my credit card that I used to purchase and it shows the $450 purchase.  I have also checked my spam and no email there eitherl

  1. I just ordered two $500 gift cards and I have not received anything either. Although it has not been 24 hours. Did you ever receive yours?

Do you mind me asking what browser you used to purchase the gift cards?  I can't even get my payment to process anymore.  It's been an issue since October and I've purchased carnival gift cards through AARP for years without issue.  Same credit card and all info the same.  Cleared my cookies and cache and made sure 3rd party ads weren't blocked.  It's very frustrating but if you were at least successful in purchasing the gift cards online that is really good news to hear for you.

Hi, I used Google.  I got a confirmation from AARP saying I would get them in 24 hrs....nothing yet nor has the payment been processed! I'm beginning to lose my patience!! I've never encountered a problem with this before.

Janelle,

I ordered gift cards again last week and no response yet. Is there a delay with the new year or do we need to escalate again? You were amazing in helping me get this resolved last year. Can I ask for your help again? Please?

Thanks, 

Danne

@AARPTeri I am so disappointed in AARP. I recommend someone due to me using the gift card service and never having a problem but now my friend purchased $1600 worth of carnival gift cards on Sunday and was told 24 hours now being told technical issues and will take 3-5 days. We have a cruise coming up and now they may miss it because of this. This is totally unacceptable and as I’ve read threads that this is a common issue. AARP really has dropped the ball.

I got mine at about 72 hours. Ordered Friday at 1 pm and had them by email just after noon on Monday this week.

@GabrielC984090 Let's get to the bottom of this, Gabriel. What error message did you receive? Did you receive the gift card email after processing your purchase? Please provide me with more details and I will do my best to assist!

Immediately after touching the purchase button. It did its processing cycle on the screen then the next screen was an error from the website. Not a congratulations or thanks for your purchase. Error was written on the screen in the standard rewards website background. It looks like the purchase went through. My credit card shows the purchase pending. However I haven’t seen an email or anything. Junk included.

Welcome to AARP! I see one email that was sent on April 10th that I've resent, so double check your spam folder. I'm not able to verify the cruise gift card purchase, so you might want to double check your purchase. If I can help with anything, let me know!

What was the email? My bank posted a processed transaction of $450 so now I'm getting annoyed that I spent that and don't have what I paid for 3 days later

@StevenC25827 Hi Steven, the email that was sent on 4/10 was for the magazine subscription redemption. When you spoke with our escalations team on 4/14, they provided you the phone # to reach out if the refund does not show for you. Please be sure to reach out and let them know if your statement does not reflect the correct info.
