After 90 minutes I was able to complete the activities for special perks and get some items but in general all the activities under the discover tab for the special perks failed after several attempts.  All the gift cards failed .  It took 90 minutes for me to get the points or retake the activity several times and finally get the cards.  This is a common occurrence each and every new month.  I think AARP could be more prepared for this since you know it will be busy the first of each and every month.

AARP should have someone become a member and use there reward site and try to get the extra credit stuff before it sells out midnight - 2am last day of month.   To ask what we are having issues on is just frustrating.   Issue 1 - Site is unable to support volume.   Issue 2 - Site fails to give credit for activities but instead gives us a Sorry we having our normal issues - waste more time trying again and again (paraphrasing but that basically what it says).  Issue 3 - It took about a dozen attempts to get the CVS card - got the "we having issues error".  We know what AARP person will say - the site was busy what do you want us to do - well how about this - maybe have a site that can handle the volume of traffic you are having.    We all know that not likely - have not address the issues in past year or so and probably not likely to address them in the future.  Frustrating - you have no idea.

Any time I have an issue and contact them I always get the "You are the first to report this".  REALLY?  I get tired of constantly telling them the problems on their site.  This last month with the chintzy 28K points for a measly $5 gift card?  Absolutely no incentive for paying members to pay for this privilege.  Not to mention when certain activities just bail on you after doing the time and you have to repeat or find another activity.

For an unreasonable amount of points (26000) for a $5 card is ridiculous especially for a Walgreens. Can’t understand the greediness of AARP for allowing this to continue.  
Totally outrageous for sureTotally outrageous for sure

 



Notice from tech support
Through April 25th, various gift card brands will be unavailable as we perform system maintenance.

Why did admin not tell us what gift cards would be affected ??? Instant Wins, purchase, daily, or even this $5 points card. Sounds like they wanted us to waste a few points in the process. Besides what does all this have to do with system maintenance. ???????

WHATEVER 😤😤

You think that instead of having all those "sweepstakes" that are close to impossible for members to win (trust me there are non-member professional sweepstakes players out there), they could split up the value of those sweepstakes cards into $10 points-only cards for MEMBERS and the providers of the cards still get the business and marketing......just my two cents

I totally agree with you about the sweepstakes.I stopped entering a long time ago.For instance the Kohls five winners of a $500 card.Thats $2500 worth of cards that could be offered for $10 each.I refuse to waste that many points to enter for something thats nearly impossible to win.The e-greeting cards are okay but tons of them and can be gotten free all over the internet.However I am sure some people like them being posted here.Do wish they would stick them in a folder of their own.I do like the discount on many cards.However the google card that saved $2 is no longer in the list.Thats the one my family purchased most so we will miss the savings on that.

I agree about the sweepstakes, but I don't know where the free e-gift cards are that you say are all over the internet. Because I don't know where these are, I try to get the ones offered here, but since they always sell out so fast and I'm not online 24/7, I usually can't even get the ones offered here.

Update - when I originally read the comment, I thought it said e-gift cards, but now see it is e-greeting cards, and I agree it is not worth spending points on those (and I have never done that). I try to use my points for the e-gift cards, but the ones I want are usually sold out before I can get them, so hard to get anything decent in this rewards program with the rewards points.

Oops, I misread the comment, thought it said e-gift cards instead of e-greeting cards. Definitely agree that it's not worth spending points on the greeting cards.

RenateW69623 I did edit the message.I originally had posted just e-cards.Once I saw your post I realized that could be read as a gift card also so I put the 'greeting' in the post.I am sorry I didn't clarify my post better.

@KennethG683811   You have a good idea.  I doubt it will be done because  sweepstakes suck a lot of points out of the system without using a lot of resources.   Points taken, nothing won is the experience for most.   A few win, likely nonmembers in the majority as you suggest.

 Will there be any gift cards for points this month? I've not seen AARP go this long without putting something up even it's something for only $5. My points might expire before I get to use them.
