First the gift cards kept going down in value. We used to have more $20 or more gift cards. Now it seems they offer almost only $5 cards. Sometimes the Daily Deals used to be able to be redeemed for points. Not anymore. They are all for purchase.
Now. Have you noticed that previously they had sweepstakes that offered gift cards that were $200 with 10 winners, now none are being offered? And the $100 gift card sweepstakes that used to have 20 winners now only have 10 winners. This results in more than a 50% reduction in rewards on sweepstakes. The rewards keep getting smaller and smaller.
Merkle Inc is trying their best to run the program in the ground instead of telling AARP Corporate that its more than they can handle and appoint someone that has the knowhow on running a fun filled and rewarding rewards program for its members.
