@HokiePoq @rednexsrus A while back, I was wondering the very same thing! I thought maybe the rewards vendor was targeting/filtering certain rewards for certain people. I realized, to my chagrin, that the way I had set my filters was not catching some rewards for points the way it should have. I removed all my filters and I saw the Gift Card everyone was talking about. Has this happened for anyone else too?
Probably, not, as I am sure you are all much smarter and wiser at AARP Rewards than I am lol 😂😂😂
Just a thought that might help someone avoid missing the gift cards I missed!
Thanks for your 411 tip Suzy but I have tried everything to make these dang filters make sense and the pesky purchase cards still filter in, Just haven't figured how to keep them out when I am looking for something. Oh well, I still ain't buying nothing that HelloWorld offers.
@rednexsrus Very interesting I was seeing DSW a little while ago....hope you can if that's one you can use. I truly hope the current operator and AARP are not playing games with who sees what. What happened with the prior program was disturbing. People with lower and higher point values saw different things and the auctions went for vastly different totals. How anyone thought it was fair for one member to pay, for example, 10K points for a card and another 100K for the same card is beyond me. But yet that was the way it was. Targeting some vendors by zip code (if that is going on) could be a response to the constant complaints from those who don't have centain vendors in their area. That hasn't bothered me as I figure others can use them and not take one I might want, perhaps. OR it could be marketing strategy by the vendor. Either way it should be an open process which it apparently is not. Thanks for making us aware of this issue.
Someone mentioned in an earlier post (probably a few months ago) that some members were seeing "points only" rewards while other members were not. The suggestion was: that management was directing certain rewards to members particular zip codes and time zones. Hey, with today's technology (algorithms) any thing is possible. 🤔 🤔
My Point !! while they are only $5 GC's (that's all we senior's deserve) the fact remains that RcD saw the DSW @ 10:28 am on 2/21 and you (Kelly) saw the same DSW @ 2:14 pm the same day. for almost 4 hours that we know of. I know for a fact I was on site that day during that period of time and NEVER saw the DSW reward card. Never saw the Domino's GC the day before either, both which I have been saving up for some time.
I am in need of a new pair of shoes and my social security is already stretched pretty slim.

I also stopped trying to get the max daily points when they started expiring. I get about 3,500 daily just in case something comes up that has value and is needed.
I've been complaining like you and others since R4G. But I've been retaliated against for my complaints in numerous ways😡.
Happy Superbowl Day,
Kudos, Marylin and Ginger
I agree with both of you on not trying to max out your points every day now.
I count how many IW's I enter along with the number of sweepstakes graveyard entries I make and that is what I earn in points for the day. Sorry, but I am a sucker when I can spend 1000pts for a chance at $1000 bucks.
My odds on the Super Bowl weren't much better. ha ha ha
Right now that appears to be the best deal we have going with this administrator.
There has got to be a way we can convince AARP corporate that there are many changes needing to be made in it's failing Rewards Program. I really don't thing they read what we put in the feedback survey's. I for one have quit filling them out for now.There are way too many seniors leaving AARP because of how this management company has treated them.
I don't get but 3,500 pts per day now, and still have lots of points. I don't like the $5 gift cards, because they lure you to the store to spend money to get something.
Very few paying members complain about how they're being treated, and it's sad.
Have a Blessed Day
I think most of us regulars have voiced our complaints. I have only noted one or two "cheerleaders" who either don't value their time or are grateful for any small reward.
I used to spend a LOT of time on the site earning points and watching for rewards. Now it's no point in getting a huge number of points and even those we have will be taken away over time. I've NEVER won a sweepstakes on the site, either before or after the change to Hello World. In fairness, I never enter every day, just throwing points down the rabbit hole so to speak. I'd stay up until midnight on the first of the month to get the great $20 cards. That was before you could only get one. A free meal in a nice restaurant was great. Now one gets a $5 card which is really more trouble than it's worth, at least for me, except for Amazon where it goes to my balance. I read that Lucy does this to other sites, so I might work on trying to find more ways to use the tiny reward cards.....or not. Definitely not killing myself to get a $5 card that annoys both the cashiers and the people behind me in the checkout line.
I could not have said it any better.
If you don't have an online account with these vendors whereby you can add the GC to an account, but have to bring the printed gift cards into the restaurant, thereby in most circumstances annoying the cashier and the waiting line then yeah, avoid the $5 GC's, let the non-members have'em.
A few months ago I had (4) $5 GC's for IHOP. Upon paying for the meal the cashier was noticeably upset and rude as she didn't have a clue how to apply them to the bill, even though simple instructions were printed on the GC. NEVER AGAIN, IHOP does not allow adding GC's to an account or adding to another physical card. I will have to pass on IHOP GC's
Hello Rewards Warriors,
Has everyone forgotten the $100 & $50 Weekly Instant Wins, $25 "Points Only" gift cards?
Why isn't anyone complaining about these $5 "Points Only" cards😡
All members should be posting about their disappointment, or you will soon see $1, 2 & $3 "Points Only" gift cards only.
Don't settle, demand a better program 🤔
Speak Up Rewards Community Warriors!!!
Have a Blessed Day
Happy Galentine's Day!
I feel your 😡😰😈 but accepted & moved on sometime ago from posting about upset after years of it never changing anything....it is what it is & life goes on 😏🤔🤯
I no longer spend day on AARP site as used to & I don't even play all the games used play everyday ... after new Trivia game came along I somehow lost interest in playing or earning game points & felt didn't matter so don't bother earning points everyday... just do simple ones and Weekly News and Promo codes & anything that catches my interest.
I so enjoyed old days trying get Real Daily Deals Products not just discounted cards been forever since they offered a "freebie" for points daily deal
Anyways they've lost revenue earnings since myself & maybe others no longer are as devoted as once were.... they even changed/removed $5 amount listed for donations to AARP Foundation been a year since donated points & all the asking for explanation about it from many didn't ever get reply from 'helpers' back in day we used get answers or folks try help at least acknowledged our existence... no longer not that I'm aware
I have taken notice to a few "Instant Wins" are $15 value vs $10 which is nice if could just win one.... been so long don't recall last time won & I've never won a Sweepstakes since new Rewards used to a few times year... never nothing over $20 value but was cool to win
Good luck with change coming for better.... I'd truly be 😱 shocked
Rereading my writing guess I'm doing some complaining 😁🥴 here... oh well
Hope all a great & safe Superbowl Day
Ginger ; )
