AARP Teri, Finally had a response 2 days ago which offered us a return of money or a physical card.  I chose the physical card and was told it would be mailed out yesterday 10/3 with expedited shipping.  This morning I called AARP rewards and the customer service rep told me it could take up to 12 weeks to get the card.   When I asked to speak to a supervisor she said in broken English that should could give me the number of the group that issues the card.   I said sure and then she proceeded to give the the generic number to Carnival Cruise Line.  Frustrating!

That's right, one per month of each amount. Or at least that's what it said before they were removed. It also said up to 3 a month if you buy them from different retailers. Whatever that means. It's wrong, in my opinion. The Carnival gift cards have been very popular for years and bring a lot of traffic to AARP, so to say thanks, they force people to pay to become members just to buy them, then tack on a ridiculously low limit to boot. People often need more than 1 a month leading up to their cruise. That low limit severely hinders how many people use these gift cards.

Likewise please let me know when the ability to purchase the Carnival cards returns.  This was a real benefit and it would be a shame if it is not returned.

Ugh that they are gone!  That's why we were keeping our membership.   We were saving up for a cruise and this made it possible.  It was the best benefit to have a AARP membership.

They pulled the Carnival cards from the site because people were getting them without PIN numbers. They're suppose to be back when it's straightened out.

@AARPTeri 

 

I would also like to be contacted today as I have a Carnival ecard as well and have spent hours trying to get it resolved without any help. From calls to AARP, Carnival, and Blackhawk, no one wants to take responsibility for this screw-up. I am ready to just dispute the charge plus cancel my membership and move on. This is simply ridiculous. AARP sells the cards and needs to stand behind their program.
