@RussellP197074 

MemberSince2006 is my user name..As for gift cards it has nothing to do with signing up for a service.It gives people the option to enjoy something for free.For example I redeem for fandango now cards.That allows me to rent or buy movies and stream them paying with the gift card.All I had to do was sign up and add the app and that is all that is required.As far as I know you aren't required to sign up for anything that requires payment to use a gift card.Why would anyone not get a card for hula for instance when you can have 2 or 3 months free viewing for one $25 card.Maybe redeem for 3 cards and have 6 months viewing.I am sure that would help a family with a tight budget to enjoy something they might not have extra cash to pay for now.

Why would anyone purchase something with points they cant use?Anyone can use a streaming service and it takes nothing from no one.Thats what the rewards program is for.To save money and maybe enjoy something they might not otherwise be able to get.Same as redeeming for the restaurant gift cards.A free or discount on a meal is nice for all.I rarely redeem for those because most aren't in my area.

Hey Russell

Far as I can tell that's their user name cause click on name like anyone else shows their posts and such & joined date.... so that's their identity - Member since 2006

@MemberSince2006 there are several others with name begins that way

Don't think its possible to post without being member & signing up & choosing screen name

My thoughts anyway

Enjoy your day 

Ginger ;  )

🙂 Smile & the world Smiles with you 😉 Pass one on....its free

Whoever posted the following was not identified for some reason.

If someone cannot afford to pay cash for the mentioned services then why would they be subscribed to any of them in the first place? I personally eliminate any such "rewards" immediately, if it would require subscribing to a new service, when I have not already identified it as something valuable to me.  If I did purchase something with points that i do not end up using, I have effectively stolen that deal from someone who could use it, because they are limited in numbers of available "cards".

I haven't done much with AARP rewards lately.  There is nothing on the site that I actually want, let alone use.  I would like to see points only options that are actually useful.  I am not feeling like a valued customer at the moment.

Hello Rewards Warriors

 

Has anyone else noticed that the daily deals for at least the next (4) days are purchase deals😢.

 

Why can't we get daily "Points Only" cards to use points before the end of year?  

 

@AARPCaroline can we get at least 1 to 5 thousand card availability with over 30 million plus members? 

 

Are we really valued customers or suckers, being pulled with strings like puppets.

 

We don't need to be tricked, manipulated or maneuvered to come to the site.  If we're able to use are points for a real chance at getting something of value, the Rewards site would be overwhelmed.

 

What's your opinion?

 

Have a Blessed Day

Marylin

Hello AARP Management

 

@AARPTeri 

Is it possible to offer at least (3) Points Only cards daily valued at $15.00 and up? Gas, Wal Mart, Target, Whole Foods, Best Buy, etc.

 

We can use our points before they disappear, and please offer cards can be used nationally.

 

Thanks 

@mi4090

Yes, I agree with you.  And a $5 or $10 card is not enough - get real!!  At this point there is nothing that I want to redeem.  It just keeps getting worse.

AND we are doomed to losing them.
Mark what I am saying. If Merkle aka HelloWorld has ANYTHING to do with the points expiration policy then AARP will be grossly derelict in it's responsibility to their members if they do not monitor their actions. After all Merkle IS the Administrator, and I believe this is their policy not AARP.
This reference is at the bottom of the email we all received **** You are receiving this email because of your recent transaction with AARP ******* WHAT TRANSACTION ??
This leads me to believe that bringing up this so called points policy change is in retaliation for all the comments, requests and suggestions that we have been making in this forum.
Just Saying

Hello Rewards Warriors

 

Does anyone else feel that there should be 2 or 3 points only cards offered everyday?

 

It would be nice to use your points before you start losing them😢

 

Have a Blessed Day

@rednexsrus  I managed to grab one more Hulu before it went out of stock/disappeared again, which exended my subscription til early next year. Gives me more time to wait for it to come back without being as anxious. Now I'm trying to focus on getting the max points daily, so I'll be ready for at least one (if not 2) by the time it comes back in stock.
