Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What is Rewards for Good and how does it work?
Rewards for Good is a free rewards program that gives you points for using many of the tools and resources found at AARP.org. The more you take advantage of the benefits on AARP.org, the more points you earn. Points are used toward the cost of the retail price of some of your favorite items. You can redeem your points to get exclusive savings on top brands, special deals from local retailers, and live auction and sweepstakes opportunities on the Rewards for Good site.
Who can participate in Rewards for Good? Do I have to be an AARP member?
Anyone over the age of 18 can participate in Rewards for Good by simply creating a free account at AARP.org. AARP members earn 50 percent more points for participating in earn activities.
