Using paypal to purchase Gift Cards

I tried several times yesterday and again this morning to  purchase Carnival Gift cards through AARP rewards and when I select paypal as my payment option, nothing happens. Is this an ongoing issue? 

Thank you!

Thank you for reaching out, Wendy. Unfortunately, PayPal is no longer a payment option for AARP Rewards. At this time we accept Apple Pay, MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express credit cards and debit cards to make purchases. We're always here to help!

Hi, I was researching some information for a future post and found your reply to Wendy from back in July.  As of today 9/11/20 -

This information is still listed in the - AARP Rewards Terms and Conditions
Under Section 😧 The Rewards Catalog
1. The Rewards Catalog will contain items (“Rewards”) that can be purchased using Rewards Points or cash (Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal or credit card are supported)
© 2020 Merkle Inc. All rights reserved.

If PayPal truly is no longer supported don't you think someone should update the Rewards Terms and Conditions. 

Just Saying

@rednexsrus Paypal was temporarily removed but is now an option for payment again. The only payment option currently unavailable is Google Pay and we will work on updating that in the terms.
