Is Rewards experiencing technical difficulties again?  It was unable to process my transaction.  The last time this happened, it took almost a month to resolve.  Hoping that isn't the case this time.  Thanks!

It's not working for me.  I tried the troubleshooting things they had me do last time.

@amennenga I understand. What exactly is happening? What screen are you on when you get the issue and are you getting an error message? Please provide me with some more information. You can also send me a private message if you'd like. The steps to do that can be found here: https://community.aarp.org/t5/Technology/How-do-I-send-a-private-message/ta-p/2185159

This problem has been "escalated" since 09/28/2021----no resolution.  I can not purchase any gift cards.  I keep being asked the same questions over and over......why?  I have the correct address everywhere--I am not using ad blockers etc.  I have tried 4 different devices and 4 different browsers.  I am frustrated and disappointed.

@CindyR568247 Hi Cindy, the escalation has not been created yet. On Oct 5 I sent you a private message asking for a few more details in order to submit the information to our escalations team. Unfortunately, I have not received a response from you as of yet in order to complete the escalation. Please let me know if you are having trouble viewing my private message.

@AARPTeri always appreciate your updates but this one should have stated "we are aware that AARP Rewards has been experiencing technical issues since the "Rewards Maintenance" 03-Aug (1 month ago)".

 

It seems when one of the issues due to "maintenance" is "fixed", another is broken... (e.g... now videos seem to score but Rewards games do not (receiving "missed" message on those today).

 

So just for honesty's sake, and so we can trust SOMETHING, please consider posting accurately.

 

Thank you, and stay safe...

@AARPTeri - I do have cards in my cart that I am unable to checkout due to the technical difficulties - I sincerely hope that I will be able to cash out at some point instead of having my cart deleted and the cards I have in my cart suddenly "sold out" - it is the least you can do for the inconveneience of members that were diligent today (some right at midnight) to do the activities and earn the rewards.  Just my two cents.

So much for that - I lost the Daily Deal today that was in my cart because of the 'technical difficulty'.  It was in my cart!  Like when I am at the grocery store waiting in a long line to checkout, people don't take items away that I have in my cart.  This is what happened here, and it is very unfair!

In Rewards for Good, one had 20 minutes to complete the transaction once the item was in the cart. I have suggested several times that something equivalent be done for this current program; it would be a great addtion.

Of course no community manager has ever answered me; however one representatve on the phone told me clearly that one cannot hold items in the cart because there is no cart and no need for one! Sometimes one just have to laugh at the absurdity.
