Hello everyone 🤗. Yes it is a Shocker. It appears that they may be listening to us a little. Now if only they would make the $10 and up ( wishful thinking) for members only. And maybe allow members 4 Redemptions per month as a well deserved Benefit. I'm hoping this trend continues. I noticed a $10 Peet's Coffee e-gift card. I'm just saying

Hi @HokiePoq 🙂
Thank you for the post!
I never saw this....not even as a Sold Out
They disappear before some of us ever get a chance to grab something of.....admittedly a pitifully small....value!😒
AARP.....An Absence of Rewards 🙄Possibilities 😿
Take care ☮️ ~Allen
Yeah, 5 bucks you get when you pay for a membership, or as a non-member get for 'free' (not including the time it takes to earn points). 🤔
P.S. The BK GC was released some time this morning, and sold out within a few hours, is my guess. Not interested. Can't always have it your way at BK. For your trouble, however, here's a BK crown >>> 👑 lol
At Baby Depot inside Burlington, you’ll find everything you need for baby. From furniture, to baby gear and clothing…all from trusted brands at incredible prices!
Baby Depot gift cards are redeemable at over 800 Burlington and Baby Depot stores in the US and Puerto Rico.
Doesn't look like anything new.
Just the same old smoke and mirrors.
I refuse to "give" points until the program
tells us how much money they will give to
the AARP Foundation for my 4,000 point
Why hide it? It previously stated, some time
ago, a $5 donation to the Foundation.
Your point contribution to support AARP Foundation will result in a payment from AARP to AARP Foundation. Your point contribution is not tax-deductible."

I think we are all looking to get "something for nothing" because it's fun ! I think we need to separate the good works of AARP such as education and information from the way to entice us into viewing the content. I view the second part as a symbiotic relationship - companies get some advertising and goodwill by having their gift cards available, AARP helps us by providing videos and the company running the platform gets paid by ad sponsors. I don't see a free lunch for anyone here. As to the structure (18 year old members ?!) there are a lot of state rules about sweepstakes and drawings. I know that even for our church raffles, we have to provide a free ticket to anyone who asks. Possibly during the pandemic, companies found this a cheap way to entice us to shop, but many no longer need to do so. It's all big business - not a way to give away free stuff to us seniors ..... pls don't get me wrong, I'm just as frustrated as the rest of you at fighting to get a $5 Amazon card, but since this is still a free country, we can decide how we spend our time in order to get what we want. Lots of other platforms are more lucrative, but not too many give us good information videos as a benefit. At one point during the pandemic, I had over a million points because i enjoyed watching (and doing!) the exercise videos every day. Never won anything via the sweepstakes, but it certainly was fun (and beneficial!) Please continue to post your ideas and suggestions, because it seems they clearly are listening !
Hello everyone 🤗. I hear you. Just give it a little time and let's see how you feel. You mentioned that the Companies that make their gift cards available for advertising and goodwill 🤔. Give me a minute to think about that. I hope you know that companies buy these gift cards in Bulk at a Big Discount. Wish you could have been around when AARP Rewards Program was only for 50+ people that really need help and let's not talk about the economy today. You mentioned that you had around 1,000,000 points and did you win anything? Back in the day there was Auctions which was real fun and you had to keep your eye on your monitor and try to get your bid in at the very last second. A lot of us have learned a thing or two, but ask yourself what is or what was AARP's goal and reason for this organization. I'm just saying
Reading your post brought back to memory that I had to wait to join AARP - back in 2008 was 50 years old at that time you had to be 50 to be a member... in line with how most Senior Centers you have to be 60 or 55 .... indeed there are alot of boomers but once AARP dropped age requirement that really increased membership plus added more members to Rewards program Not sure what year they removed age requirements but think in last 10 years possibly last 5... Anyone recall when?
AARP was really known as group for Seniors which was founder Ethel goal/idea in 1958... so reckon few of us may recall those times & have witnessed lots of changes through the years which is how life is Always changing whether we desire it too 😯😫🤷♀️🤗😍
I recall Sweepstakes back then & I'm not up on rules to know whether that's why program changed to allow everyone??
I've always stated all that AARP offers and information available plus support of Seniors with AARP Foundation I'd always be a paying member regardless of what becomes of Rewards program & grateful for 🍒'cherries on top'🍨 when get a usable gift card for points... guess getting anything is truly icing on cake
Thanks for sharing... really a blessing to have our community here
Enjoy your day⚘

In the early 80's my mother had joined AARP but passed away soon after. I was in my 20's. Among mail she got over the next several months was from AARP for auto insurance. I mailed it back to them, marked deceased, but it kept on coming. Finally, in desperation after having done this several times, I crossed out all he info and inserted mine. They sent me auto insurance! It was a year policy for a way better price than I was already paying for the standard 6 month policy. I got the insurance and even took the 55 Alive Defensive Driver course and got a 10% rebate on the insurance as well. The next year, upon renewal, they sent me a notice saying I was not old enough and would be dropped. I asked them why did they take me in the first place, I gave them all valid info so they knew I was no where near 50. They said they were dropping everyone who did not qualify. So I guess they did this to many people. They told me I could reapply for insurance (and presumably AARP) when I turned 50. 20 plus years later, they stated sending me invites so they once again had all my info. I did not get auto insurance but signed up for AARP. In all the correspondence they now tell me "Thank you for being a member for 29 years"! --

So I guess once you are in their system they keep that as your baseline.
I agree with most of your comments, but I am not sure if they are listening to any of the suggestions for making changes. I wasn't a member of the old AARP program, but I've seen other rewards programs I belong to make "improvements" which were really just improvements for the company and not for the members of the program. But as you say, it is up to us to decide how we want to use our time, and these companies don't owe us anything, it's up to them to decide how they want to get our business. When I first joined AARP rewards last year, I was excited about the rewards and spent quite a bit of time on the site earning points. Now that I've seen it isn't very easy to use my points to get things I can really use, I am spending much less time on this rewards program.
The new AARP Rewards program started favorably with "points only" GC's ranging from $10 to $25 for popular vendors like Panera Bread, Amazon, Walmart, Home Depot, Lowes, Target, and Williams Sonoma, to name a few. It was great to be able to redeem 3 rewards from the same vendor back then, and the number of points per dollar value for redemption was much less. Now a $5 Amazon GC could go as high as 25K points. In the beginning, there was 1 Daily Instant game with 100 winners per day instead of the 7 Instant Win games we now have. AARP made it harder for us to win the Instant Wins, plus we have to use up more points to play 7 games now. There used to be a weekly Instant Win for $50-$100 GC's when the program started, but soon eliminated. As time went on, the new rewards program was changed, and not for the better for us paying members. AARP started "take aways" by eliminating the higher dollar value GC's, limiting redemption rewards to 1 vendor per month, and making earning points more difficult by changing some of the daily earning videos to weekly and monthly videos. Allowing membership to the rewards program for anyone 18 years or older, I don't see this reward program getting better for the paying senior members. AARP is the acronym for American Association of Retired Persons and the intent of AARP is to focus on seniors age 50+ years, so why does an 18-year old qualify to join a program meant for "retired" persons?? I just don't get it!
