Carnival gift card warning

Ok, guys. It’s been years - literally, YEARS - and AARP has done jack squat to fix whatever issue is going on with the gift cards. Just an FYI - There are other websites that are much easier to use that offer the same discount. Most people I have talked to get their cards with no issue but there are a LOT of people like me who called and waited multiple times and didn’t get a refund for weeks after purchase. Use AARP to buy gift cards at your own risk.

Thank you for posting this. It seems like this is a common issue from looking at google. I joined to be able use the “benefits” of the rewards site for gift cards for travel. We’re having the same issue. Telling all my family and friends not to join to save them the aggravation.

I totally agree. It took over a month countless calls and chats plus getting sent to the "escalation" department for gift cards over a month ago. They said it must be an issue with my email address. I finally got them when they sent them from a different address. 

I changed my email for my account and tried again over 2 weeks ago and still nothing. Once again moved to the so called escalation department, but it is exhausting. I would get them quicker if they would just mail them to my house. 

Funny thing, I looked at the posts here and see that I had the same issues in 2019! 

I wish I could find the discounted cards somewhere else but Allstate doesn't have the rewards program that they used to and I don't see them on the sites that you listed.

Could you expand on what the "issue" is exactly and why you requested a refund? Also, are Allstate and Newegg selling discounted cards? I saw Newegg selling them for face value.

Allstate recently ended their rewards program.
