@gm5271  @mi4090 

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!!!

I have complained.  I have asked questions.  I have been totally ignored by AARP.

Hi Marylin 

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 ;  )

I'm not very excited by $5 GC's. But, If you are already accumulating them
or eat at IHOP then it could be useful.

I'm with you, but they are better than nothing !  For overstock and 1-800flowers, they are basically the equivalent of discount coupons, which are plentiful on their websites anyways ... and at least, people can feel like they've "won" something 😉

Periodic Contributor

just dropped:

1-800flowers.com 12K for $5

IHOP 12K for $5

overstock.com 13K for $5

 

enjoy !

 @andrewtoo 

I got the $5 CVS😊 Don't use this pharmacy, but I was there yesterday because they're the only place in my area that seems to have the Free N95 mask.  Going back to get more mask & find something that I can buy with gift card.

Thanks Andrew😊

If you have one nearby it could be useful, I get a lot of coupons via email from them.  Wish it were $10!

I don't often check the Rewards offerings as late as midnight... seems like Admin doesn't often post many new listings that late in the day.

I'm not very excited about this one, but, a
big flower holiday is coming up and maybe
someone could use a $5 "coupon"?

I never got a reply about being able to trade (no money changes hands) some gift certificates. It would be nice to have more then $5 when I go shopping and somebody might have something I could use and I might have something they could use. I have an instant win $10 Buy Buy Baby and nobody to use it on as an example.

@Karyn8 - I am pretty sure you can use your Buy Buy Baby card at Bed Bath and Beyond or Christmas Tree Shops if you have either of those in your area.  Maybe someone else can chime in on this.

@garyfish49   You called it.  Just $5 cards and unless I missed it, no Amazon, the only one I'd bother to do activities for a $5 card.    I guess everyone thought as the person who posted Red Lobster.  $5 would pay for a couple of biscuits....maybe.    This monring I am seeing six items in each category but nothing above $5.   Glad I stopped staying up for it.

Hey rvf,

There's a $5 Red Lobster pts-only up there now for 11,000.

You might only get 2 shrimps... but it's something, and pts-only.  😂

 

Kind regards.
