OK  Currently the 3 cards available for points say they are limited to 1 per person.  I checked the article in the link you provided.  It shows the following:

 

Point-Only items are limited to 1 item per person

  • We may periodically offer identical catalog items with differing point values at different times. 
  • Sometimes, we may offer the same item again in the catalog months later. If you previously redeemed the item, you cannot redeem it again.
  • If this happens, each catalog item may be ordered only once per point value. We want to ensure everyone has an opportunity to take advantage of our Point Only items.
  • Please review all Disclosures and Rewards Terms displayed before redeeming.

That pretty much says it is a one and done.  I see no reason to continue to earn points and then only be able to use those points for Instant Wins and Sweepstakes which are nearly impossible to win.

 

Some rewards program! You can only get 1 gift card no matter how many years the program goes on. It says you want to make sure everyone has an opportunity to take advantage of point only opportunities.  What is says to me it once I redeem for a card I no longer have any opportunity to take advantage of the points only cards if it is from the same company and for the same amount of points.  So I have gotten a whopping $5 card and that is my big reward.  Such severe restrictions.  Like I said it is pretty much a one and done no matter how many months or even years ago you redeemed for that card.  My opportunities will be severely limited after a short period of time.  They are already limited since a lot of the cards I can't use since we don't have one of those stores in my state.  That is the case for 2 of the 3 stores currently offering points only cards.

If this one and done thing is actually true maybe we can start sending suggestions to AARP as to stores and restaurants we use but never see gift cards offered for - so for example I see Kroger and Safeway gift cards available now, which do not operate where I live, but I never see Wegmans or Publix that do.  Or just stick to national chains.....

@KennethG683811  Our area does not have Wegman's or Publix although I have been in a Publix on vacation.  So few national chains, maybe Walmart.  Apparently the parent company of both Kroger and Safeway is willing to provide gift cards when Wegman's and Publix are not....or maybe they haven't been contacted.   No Safeway in our area, either, but we do have a Kroger.

I too have been able to get a gift cards offered at different times.  Now it makes me wonder if this is something new. Very confusing.  The customer care answer just made me question if things are changing.  Maybe just another cut?  

 

I am a long time user too.  I remember when you could get more than 1 of the gift cards but no more than 3 a month.  I remember when I got 3 $25 Walmart cards on the same offer shortly after the switch from Rewards for Good..  Then it changed to only 1 gift card per offer.  I understood this, didn't really like it, but I understood. Hopefully it isn't changing to only 1 gift card per company forever. This I will not like.

@shamit @AARPConsumerCare & To all following this thread

Okay feel I must share I've gotta say this conversation is really crazy confusing The answers being given here continue to not really answer the questions being asked

@shamit I have no idea where you got info you posted above & I  certainly understand your upset

I don't believe info being given is correct.... just makes no sense being forever & hasn't been my experience 

I'm a person who can say I've gotten several Domino's $5 gift card for points several times for 16,000 points & other amounts of points As well as Amazon & Wal-Mart $5 & $10 (when points were more reasonable) through the years since this new rewards began 

I've always understood that you can't get more than 1 of each offer Not only 1 of each company/brand & exact points offered forever that's crazy but answers given seems to say get only 1 Card for same amt points 1 time forever? Really? Is this something new? New rules? Cause its certainly new to me

 

So I'm going try to reach out to Teri @AARPTeri Can you please shed some light on this topic? Consumer Care persons are very confusing while avoiding a direct answer to questions 

🙋‍♀️Other older members will you share your experience with this matter? Certainly I'm not only longtime member that's gotten more than 1 of same GiftCard(brand) with same amount of points? 🤷‍♀️

 

Okay I sounded off maybe we'll get some good answers soon

Enjoy your day everyone

I try each offer even if I think I’ve done it, sometimes the same offer listed twice the same day or week or month.  They keep changing the rules so it is anyones guess.  The other option which might be frowned upon is getting something and working with another member.  This site does not like this process being discussed but you can likely figure out the method.

Your December purchase should not carry over. Last year, this was happening to some people (but not everyone). It happened to me last year, but only on certain gift cards. And gift cards that other people couldn't get worked for me. Then it seemed to stop, so maybe they fixed it. Or maybe they didn't, and it is still happening to some people. I would recommend contacting customer service. They can't get you the gift card, but maybe they can try to get the issue fixed.

That is very possible. I received that type of message in the past. I had received a gift cert from AARP in the past of the same denomination and company and received the error message keeping me from receiving another. And it had been a while as well.

I think this might be a "regular error" (I receive often). What that is is that it errored out then tried again and it returned the "...limited to one" (we can only score gift cards for points 3 times per month). If you check your transaction history then email (check spam/trash), perhaps you'll find that card there?

so wonderful to have a spark of hope in this thread, Thank You !

Be interesting to see if they have enough or a fast sell out like it used to be.

Wow, I can't believe this is still available. And it's not even a members-only one, which CVS GC's have been in the past.  Wonder if they really are offering more, or if it's because of the higher points.  I wish they would have done this with the Panera GC last month, which I missed out on because it sold out fast.

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.
