Super welcome! Smiley Happy

 

I asked the rep about an ETA; she has nuttin. It'll get fixed if/when it gets fixed. Meanwhile, though, I'm going to keep trying to earn the points and when I do not, I shall call again and get the points added to my account. Ev-er-y time. Smiley Happy 

 

I urge everyone else to do the same. Smiley Happy Because fair is fair and right is right.

 

BTB, I checked this AM: she added 1555 points over the non-working calculators. Wheeeeeee!

Yes, I've also noticed today the biginning of the month many opened up especially under the save more sections.  It shows there should be points to earn but it doesn't give you the points.  Sometimes when I call in the Rewards for good number they send me to customer service saying they don't put in the quizes and they send me back to Rewards for good.  I've asked them which ones open up daily, weekly, monthly and yearly but no one knows or has a list.  That would save a lot of time.


@dg1070 Here's that list you were hoping for. It's the list of what tasks I was able to do today to earn those 4776 points. I've posted the Sunday and the weekday list on that other thread. There are other ways to earn points --I mean ways I cannot do and am unable to talk about from experience-- things like Fitbit steps, I think some games, possibly some webinars and videos and some tasks that may require that you have the program Flash installed (which I don't use for security reasons).

 

May you earn ooodles of points and win lots of auctions!

 

 

I promised elsewhere to post screengrabs of the points I earned at the first of the month; however comments on that thread have been closed, so I'm posting here.

 

Today, a number of (I'm just being polite: most of is more accurate) the monthly renewing calculators show points available but are unwilling to award those points. Tomorrow I shall try again with a cleared cache and a rebooted computer ... and possibly a different browser. I'll list the calculators that did not work for me today in a bit, but first, here are the promised screengrabs of today's earnings. (4776 points)

I am in awe of the work you've put into earning your points.  I have made some progress with your suggestions.  Tried the magazine thing but didn't see where you got points for that.  Maybe I didn't continue long enough as I had an appointment.

I do think that the huge bids are being made by those who don't spend as much effort as you do.  However, if there is a game or games that gives points, that might explain it.  It isn't the Fitbit thing although I'm thinking of doing that even though I don't think it will generate huge amounts of points.  

I will be offline for a few weeks on vacation....now to restain myself from getting a big phone bill checking into Rewards for Good.   

I don't think I have Flash, either.  That might explain why I could not click on the points popup that appeared yesterday.


LOL! I've got it down to a science. I did get hung up today over all these non-working calculators. I might even go ahead and just call Rewards for Good tomorrow to get the points added rather than try to rework the calculators for a third time. LOL.

 

Hey, have a great trip! Enjoy your vacation! Smiley Happy

whoops, typo fix, sorry all for the renotification

 

@dg1070, @HammH@gh76837634@grandmachloe@HokiePoq@es14589767@BarkleyHound 

 

I've @'ed you here because you were interested in the previous, now closed-to-replies, thread about the Rewards program. Smiley Happy Please see my post above as well, for more ways to earn points.

 

June 1, 2017 Non-Working Rewards for Good Calculators


With the exception of the Spanish language tasks as noted, these calculators bear a badge that claims to have points to award, however, they do not award the points. This represents 1380 points I’m out today (or rather, this month, as I was able to earn 4776 points today, so it’s actually 1380 points I’ll be out tomorrow if these calculators still do not work).

 

Long-term Care Calculator 75 points
Credit Card Payoff Calculator 75 points
Mortgage Payoff Calculator 150 points
Pay Off Credit Cards in Spanish has never worked for me I think because I don’t have Flash
Home Budget Calculator 30 points
Health Savings Account vs Traditional Health Plan 300 points
Mortgage Payoff in Spanish has never worked for me (see above)
Home Rent vs Buy Calculator 75 points
Benefits of Spending less in Spanish has never worked for me (see above)
Traditional IRA Calculator 300 points
Debt Consolidation Calculator 75 points
Net Worth Calculator 75 points
Investment Return Calculator 75 points
Fixed Annuity Calculator 150 points

 

 

And here's the take away from these two posts: you should be earning 6,156 points (obviously, this will require two days as there is a 5,000 point per day limit) at the first of each month. More, actually, if those Spanish language calculators work for you.

 

Best wishes, all.
