Redeeming rewards

Why do I have rewards if you have to pay anyway?  Most places (or apps) that give rewards, use them in place of money. I thought that is what rewards are for. I’m old and confused sorry.

Hello everyone 🤗. Today I Want to try and get members to express the need for AARP Rewards 3 E-gift cards redemption a month should be increased due to Inflation. Can we start a petition or something? I've noticed the 3 different Hooters e-gift cards,1 (Extra Credit $5 (members only) 1 For everyone $5 and 1 Instant Win $10. They have quite a few e-gift cards for points. I say 3 Redemptions for non members and maybe 5 Redemptions for Members only. Everybody Let's get on board and push AARP Rewards for these benefits. They're making us watch more and more ads . I'm just saying

Good evening. I was wondering if you might be able to help me with a redemption I want to resent to me.  It's from February of this year. The link doesn't work anymore. Can I send you a message with the email . Thank you for your time and help

@MoniqueC566411 Hi Monique, here to help! I reviewed your account and it looks like the only email from Feb was for a $10 Banana Republic gift card redeemed on 2/18/2022. I was able to re-send it for you. You can expect to receive it within 24 hours; also be sure to check your spam folder in case it lands there. Please let me know if there's anything further I can do or if you need assistance with a different redemption!
