@Jason2020LovesKelly Hey Jason, I'm sorry to hear you never received your redemption item. I was able to refund the 9k points to your Rewards account; you can confirm by checking your transaction history.

I never received this item from Nov 2023 either.  The loss of one of my 3 allowed monthly points only redemption is more important than the 9K points under the current rules!  I would prefer you send me the item and NOT take away another redemption from my scarce monthly allowance. Since it is being offered again, they must be in stock. I appreciate any efforts that could be made to replace my "lost: allotment for November! Thanx in advance...

@LenaBee I'm terribly sorry, we are unable to re-order merchandise for the Rewards program. When a physical item is not received within the 4-6 week timeframe, we only have the ability to reimburse the points. I was able to reimburse your points and you can confirm this by checking out the transaction history: https://www.aarp.org/rewards/transaction/#view=adjustments

 The "bleeped" text you refer to in each of the 3 Points-Only "physical items" reads as follows on my laptop:

 

 "Cupid is spreading the love all around AARP Rewards! Find all six of his heart-shaped (b u l l s e y e s) to unveil some sweet surprises – including exclusive points-only offers, sweepstakes, and bonus points!

Don't delay, Cupid’s (B u l l s e y e) ends Friday, February 9th and these offers are only available while supplies last. See how many you can find!

 

 I looked in all the "usual locations" on the AARP Rewards website for the (B u l l s e y e s) but I came up empty. More like B u l l * * * * if you ask me.

😂  @garyfish49  Yep! It's bleeping 'B ullseye.' Supposedly there's an event involving 🐮👁s called 'Cupid's B ullseye,' beginning Feb 5 - Feb 9 2024. Guess the community manager will post something about this b ullseye scavenger hunt tomorrow? 👌🏻

 High number of points for only $5 certificates and very few points only certificates.   I am disappointment with this months extra credit.

I agree, 25,000 points for $5 gift card.  Back in 2020, I spent 50,000 points for $25 gift cards on Hulu, CBS All Access, and Starz. Now 5x more expensive.

I have two redemptions in January (as listed in my Transactions-Redemptions) and tried to get the Amazon gift card as my third, but it was refused saying I had three redemptions in January.

Thanks for the updates on the $5 Walmart gift card.

I had one redemption left!

I got my Walmart card at 2:20 PM ET and it is still out there now at

2:45 PM.

Got both of the $5 ones since I had two left that I was going to lose.  Really try to avoid the $5 ones except for Amazon which is so easy to redeem.  Pays for a bit of my Kindle addiction.   Otherwise would have left such expensive low value items alone...

 I don't have any redemptions remaining this month, but even if I did I would pass on the ridiculous 25,000 points AARP is extorting from its members for a measly $5 Walmart GC.  Same for the $5 Amazon GC. As of this posting, both are still available for those with deep pockets.

 

 Ripoff!!

@garyfish49 @Therapist4u @susanjski @Karyn8 @andrewtoo be it AARP or HelloWorld both have become so greedy it’s pathetic. There is nothing either of them won’t do to its senior members. Reducing the points only cards to a measly $5 and now raising the points value on those cards to an extremely high amount is unjustified. It was bad enough that AARP would open its doors to anyone regardless of age when the 50 and over seniors are the ones that actually built up this organization. SO SADShame on you AARPShame on you AARP

Hi Lucy! @rednexsrus

The caring & good peeps you mentioned.... @garyfish49 @Therapist4u @susanjski @Karyn8 @andrewtoo (*well, besides that Allen guy @Therapist4u )😃 ...& of course including you!...as well as @gm5271 @RenateW69623 & others,...have been trying to offer constructive criticism for many moons now....& sometimes our camaraderie is  the main reason to come here....it sure aint for the REWARDS! LOL!😄

Also, what P/Os me is that rarely does an Admin reply...or at least acknowledge our comments!

AFA when AARP opened its doors “to anyone regardless of age”... it ceased to be an “American Association of Retired Persons”

“Age & Eligibility To Join

 AARP Is Dedicated To People Over 50 But There Is No Minimum Age To Join”🙄

What hogwash! 😒

Just wait until the elementary school kids decide to join in too! 🙃HAHAAA

Anyway, Take care Lucy!

Totally agree - I also noticed some changes in the sweepstakes, I usually choose one a month to enter every day.  The one last month I was entering is having 1 winners (fingers crossed I am lucky), but I noticed the one I was interested in this month, for the same amount of points every day, will have only THREE winners!  So I passed on that.  I know they are legally obligated to have non-members enter the sweepstakes so our hands are tied there, but it would be nice to have more winners so members can have a better chance!

OOPS - edit for the sweepstakes last month having 15 winners instead of just one!

Hi my friend Gary! @garyfish49

“Ripoff!!” Always enjoy your posts...& totally agree as usual! So the points needed to get these measly $5 GCs has risen again... even more than the inflation rates! That would be outrageous for a $10 GC!

We’re starving...come on...Throw us a bone! LOL!We’re starving...come on...Throw us a bone! LOL!

 It’s like those in charge are trying to see how far are we willing to go for some scraps & crumbs?? Will we go for a $1.00 GC...MAYBE FOR 50,000 POINTS?! LOL!

Anyway... Take care Gary!

Same thing happened when they were offering Amazon GC, where they were really high in points but still sold out pretty quick.  The Home Depot GC was definitely a better deal, but I passed on it in hopes that there would be a decent $10 GC offered before the end of the month.  There wasn't one (at least one that I could use or get before it sold out), so now I am going to use most of my points to get the Walmart GC.  It's always a crap shoot with this rewards program.  Either GC sell out before I can get them, or I get them early in the month and then miss out on better ones later in the month, or I wait and then don't end up using all 3 of my redemptions.  I always do the feedback surveys when they come up and mention ways to improve this rewards program, but I don't expect any of my suggestions to actually be made.
