Carnival gift cards

It looks to me like the Carnival gift cards are gone!

 

Am I looking in the wrong spot?

They are there just no longer discounted. I have informed AARP that i will not be renewing my membership due to this Trick.

BEWARE!!  I too want to use my AARP rewards to purchase discounted Carnival gift cards, I've always paid for our cruises this way.  So when I didn't see CCL cards in the rewards list, I searched for them and found a link for them.  Well, come to find out that is an OLD link to giftcards.com that AARP used to use.  Almost bought them at full price through that place!  Smiley Mad

 

Please!!!!   bring Carnival gift cards back!!  The savings justified my membership cost.

Just an FYI, the Carnival gift cards have returned. They're now allowing 3 per month instead of 1. I'm wondering if that's temporary. I never understood why they removed them. They said they were removed as a result of the outbreak and CDC guidelines, but I don't know what either of those things have to do with buying Carnival gift cards for future cruises.

Where are they? I just went to purchase one and am unable to locate them. Did they remove them yet again?

Yep, they're gone again. Either AARP removed them again or their terrible supplier, HelloWorld, ran out of gift cards. If that's the case, it's pretty sad because they've only been back for about a week and a half. And after not being available for over a month, they should have built up their supply.

Just downloaded the app @PatB273614  Found the cards on there. If AARP isn't going to fix this, looks like I will be cancelling membership soon. Thanks for the info!

I was looking for them myself!  The gift cards actually save you money whereas the AARP Travel Expedia site costs you more than booking direct with Carnival! 

 

Thanks for posting.  I'm following!

It still not right andaarp needs to fix this. They are have $448 of my money and I have nothing! No resolution, no nothng from anyone. It's called FRAUD. They tried to rush out a bug infected program and ot sux as per all the issues ppl are having.

It absolutely is FRAUD!  Selling someone something for a price and it not being what it is suppose to be, is FRAUD.  I've been out $448 too for a worthless piece of paper with a card number on it but no pin, therefore I can't use it so it's worthless.  This has to stop, this has to be resolved TODAY!!!!

AARP should've began issuing refunds immediately after discovering that this was a major, widewpread problem.

 

The company that was in charge of the Rewards For Good gift cards, Deluxe Rewards, Ltd., used to sell Carnival Ecards on a regular basis prior to this year. In all my time as a member of Rewards For Good, I don't recall that company selling Ecards without PIN numbers. In my opinion, this is a problem with the new company, HelloWorld, Inc.

Yes they took them down as they do not come with a PIN as I just found out after buying the $500 one...

When will the Carnival gift cards be back? It's a big factor determining if I will renew membership.

So how long does this take?  I thought your company stated it would be an easy transition to this AARP Rewards program.  Really?  I only use my points for Carnival purchases and some odd sweepstakes entry.  When are the cards coming back?  I have a cruise to pay for!

Any update? Hate to have to put a dispute in on the CC but this is a bit ridiculous!

Since we were unable to purchase our limited amount for Spetember will our Sept allotment be carried over to October?

Thanks for the update. Please let us know when they come back as we are looking at getting them for an upcoming cruise.

I liked the physical cards, because I have never had a problem using them on the ship to deposit into my On Board Account.

 

I had an issue with a Walmart Ecard trying to use it at a cash register because the ecard had a specific way of entering it that this particular employee did not know.  I eventually got it, but the people behind me in what was an express line were not happy.

 

At least using the Carnival Ecard to pay for the cruise up front can be dealt with because you are usually paying well in advance.  Imagine being on the cruise and finding you have no money to spend.

@RussellP197074   Had the same problem with a Kroger card the other day.  It eventually worked with the help of a more experienced clerk but held up the line.  The physical cards we used to get with the old program never had these issues.

@AARPTeri - what about those of us who have already purchased one without the PIN?  Customer support seems to be giving very mixed answers (last night I was told to call back first thing this morning, this morning I was told it could take 3 to 5 days to resolve).

 

I would like to book a cruise and would like to use the gift card that I purchased to do so - I'm just looking for an ETA on the resolution process.

 

Thanks in advance
