Has Everyone Received Their Redeemed Gift Cards?

I was wondering if anyone who has redeemed points or purchased gift cards recently have received them.   There have been numerous posts on the forum of not receiving the confirmation emails for the gift cards.   If there are still issues with receiving the gift cards, I will wait and hold off purchasing the gift cards until the system is fixed.  Thanks in advance for your replies.

I have never had any problems receiving redeemed or purchased gift cards. They usually show up in my email within 10 minutes or less although there were a couple times it may have taken 15-20 mins before they arrived.

I hope everyone has received their redeemed gift cards.  I was able to redeem my points for a gift card this week and received the email confirmation soon after with the link for the gift card.  It appears the earlier issues have been resolved.

Had a problem last night. Was trying to use for CVS online. Eventually got the email. Once I did get it AARP couldn't understand why CVS wasn't accepting it. Turns out you can't use egift cards on online orders, even though they show a spot for the pin. Waste of money since I can only use in store & the savings now cost me more than the gas.

Usually how long will they arrive? Thx

Usually the e-gift cards arrive within a few minutes after completing the transaction. Sometimes a couple of hours. My experience is that if they don't come within a few hours (and I have checked the spam folder of course in case they have strayed there), I need to alert Customer Service.

Yes, everyone should have received their gift cards.  We email them on Friday and did hear back from a few confirming it.  (You can also see they posted on this thread that they received them - https://community.aarp.org/t5/Redemption/Gift-Cards-Never-Showed-Up/m-p/2412327#M3318)

It appears most have not confirmed receiving their gift cards, so hopefully, everyone did get them.

There are numerous gifts cards on the AARP Rewards redemption page that can be either purchased or redeemed using earned points, however, many people posted that after purchase or redemption of points, they did not receive the e-gift cards.  I was checking to see if the issues have been resolved. before I purchase or redeem my points for the gift cards.
