I ask AARP to consider raising the amount of points we can earn daily
I ask AARP to consider raising the amount of points we can earn daily. It’s been 7,500 points for a long time….also we need more to spend it on besides contests & instant wins…there has been too little else…besides the same things… like E-greeting cards (which you can make for free) & these stoooopid coloring books✍️🎨 …lol…
Today I went ahead & spent 11,000 points on a $5.00 office max gift card (it’s basically of little value by itself). Some of the few available $5.00 gift cards are worthless…like on NIKE…it wouldn’t even pay for tax! 😄There are so few gift cards to use ‘points only’ on…& oftensold out even as I’m seeing them available for the1st time. Lately there hasn’t been hardly anything to use points on for the whole month. So… as I need to spend some points on something…what’s left I use 1,000 points on each contest that I could a actually use if I won….like today there are 10 worth entering…& that’s 10,000 points …so as I can only earn 7,500 points…therefore, my points balance is continually shrinking.
Anyway…I hope there is some action on this.
As always…the community here is full of many nice people.
I’ve had similar probs with helloworld on another website promo & basically it took 7 hours of phone calls…mostly on hold!...on a dozen different days, with many reps & supervisors …each time assuring me that “the matter has been escalated” …yah right…haha…….& almost 5-6 months ….just to get what they said would arrive within “no later than 6 - 8 weeks, tops!” So…..you can’t blame everything on the virus!
I know where you are coming from Allen with HelloWorld. Won a Carnival Sweeps back in the day with R4G and never got the plastic gift card. Either HelloWorld or UPS or both of them had a hand in that fisco. Both blamed the other for the loss but neither would make it right. HelloWorld was the worst, rude, condescending, arrogant and even suggested I was lying ect ect. Got no use for them
I agree…unfortunately they are running many website’s promos & contests….so they have total control of many people’s winnings & awards…therefore they can treat us anyway they want & seem to not care about individuals…as long as they get paid thru all their contracts.
6-8 wks seems to be the std response; so guess we'll have to wait for that.
One of the thoughts I have is @AARPLynne please pass on to ADMIN this is truly not acceptable policy. A sweeps win in Oct should not have to wait until Jan the next year, really... that's a #dotard time schedule...
