New Gift Card Award suggestions

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!





Maybe a year or so ago, the Rewards program offered $25 Points-Only Gift Cards for CBS All Access (now called Paramount+), and I would like to see those offered again.


Also, how about $25 GC's for Netflix?


And, at least one of the major cell-phone providers:

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.

Stay Healthy!!!

Sorry AnneG Publix is privately owned I thought out in CA they are part of Krogers to the best my knowledge...Oops Laura Human error

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


Boston Market

PF Chang


both former offerings




Jason's Deli

McAlister's Deli


Rainforest Cafe


Lifetime Fitness


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.

So few offerings for points only are in my area.  Would like to see more $10 (or more) cards for points only offered for:





Harris Teeter (Part of Kroger but not offered.  HT will not accept Kroger giftcards)




Bronze Conversationalist

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: 


  • Whole Foods
  • Sprouts
  • Panera Bread
  • Crate & Barrel
  • Container Store

@AnneG461594None of the grocery store offerings are near me in Upstate NY. I would love to see Wegmans or Tops.
