Out of curiosity, I am asking you all out there, if you had a choice to add two or three new gift cards to the list that we could either buy or win as AARP members, what would they be for??
I suggested to AARP some months ago that maybe they can expand the list of grocery chain gift cards - I do not live near Kroger, Albertsons or Safeway, which I see all the time, but would jump for joy if I saw one for Wegmans or Publix (maybe those chains choose not to participate???)
Recently I snagged a Tim Hortons card the ONE time I saw it amongst the multiple Dunkin and Starbucks cards I see all the time.
Maybe if we compile a list of what we want to see, they will show up in the future to give us more variety - list any and all suggestions here!
AnneG: an update Publix is part of the Kroger family grocery stores so the Kroger Gift card should be useable at Publix. I do not know much about Wegmans & somewhere in my memory bank is Tim Horton's yet I'm not on the tip of my thoughts today.
Before listing any suggestions, posts for more than 3 "wins" per month lost steam after an initial outcry, so I'll rekindle that. Chili's and Applebee's have been up for a while this month (like 2 weeks plus) and at 5 bucks per, about all you can do is smell the food. If I'm willing to pick up another of my limit of 3, at least for 10 bucks, I can get a decent meal, or awfully close to it. Even if AARP isn't embarrassed to have quality places stay available for so long, I'd think the companies would/should/could be. Pinching to the tune of only 3 "wins" AND 1 per gift card is overkill.
Suggestions...and I don't mean this 5 dollar nonsense, thank you
both former offerings
The question was what companies would you like to see added, those are my direct answers to the direct question. But I will repeat, action on this idea in response to the question as stated only means so much. Better to have higher dollar value, and the option of more than 3 per month. I could have said and/or, but upon further review, I'll stick with and.
I would prefer higher value gift cards than ones currently offered for $5. It would be nice if AARP could offer $20 to $25 gift cards for points redemption as they did in the past. The gift cards I would like AARP to offer are:
