Free Method isn't Working

Hello Community,

 

I've used (5) different browsers to use the "Free Entry Method" in Redeem section to no avail.  I keep getting a Error message asking to refresh page on every browser with my login.

Is anyone else having this problems?

 

@sandycould you please help?

 

Have a Blessed Day

Hello Community Warriors,

 

I beginning to think the "Free Method" is stuck in "Play Again Daily" mode. 

 

Have a Blessed Day,

Hello Community Warriors

@ralmon @andrewtoo @Brightpool @gm5271 @rednexsrus 

 

Ray, Andrew, Lynn, Ginger & Lucy,

 

Have any of you won anything using the "Free Method" in the last (4) weeks?

If so, what was it and what time of day/night are you getting the wins (PT, MT, CT, ET)?  Last time free method win worked for me was in December.

 

Thanks for your help in advance.

 

Have a Blessed Day

I have only won a daily instant win once and it hasn't been in the past four weeks, to my recollection.  I have never won a weekly instant win.  And, yes, I have used the free option.

 

No luck here.

Andrew thanks for letting me know I'm not along using the free method trying to win something lately.

 

If any other members are winning can you please share the time of your win and what it was?

@mi4090  Believe it or not I finally won a daily instant win.   It was using the alternate method you posted about.  (Thanks, I didn't know about that.)  It was in the very early hours of the morning as I woke up at 3 a.m. and couldn't go back to sleep.   Played about 5 a.m. ET.    That was this morning, 2/18.

Woohoo, just won a $10 PetCo gift card.

 

@mi4090- I used the alternate (free) method. Time was 16:11 CST, not that it really makes a diff, because the times are randomized.

 

Just waiting for the email confirmation now.

 

Cheers,

Ray

Congrats RayHeart

 

I've given up on playing and entering, just banking points now.

Thanks for letting me know.

Thanks Marylin,

 

I've only entered on occasion. Seemed useless to play for things I wouldn't even use. This will be a gift for my neighbor who has 4 dogs.

 

Now, that the regular sweep entry has some kind of screwup, I'm not sure I'll continue putting points there either. We'll see what the managers have to say about that odd behavior.

 

Cheers.

Ray

Thanks for letting us know that you were able to win a daily instant win with the alternate method.  I was beginning to wonder if we could actually win using that method.

Hello Community Warriors,

On 2/4/20 @ 8:42p CT, I used the Free Method to play for the Bed, Bath & Beyond (Weekly Instant Win) and it worked.  Everything on the Rewards site resets for me at 11p CT/12a ET.

At 12:38a CT/1:38a ET I tried the Free Method to play for Bed, Bath & Beyond (Weekly Instant Win) and kept receiving the message Play Again Daily.  I experienced this for more than an hour.  I wasn't able to use the Free Method during the time period of 12:38a CT to 1:59a CT, and unable to play for the Weekly Bed, Bath and Beyond Instant Win.  At around 2:04a CT/3:04a ET was able to enter information and submit and got the "Play Again Daily" message.   This is the 2nd time this has happened.

Is this happening to anyone else?

 

Have a Blessed Day,

Marylin

I believe the Daily/Weekly wins typically reset at 9am Eastern.

 

Rules for this specific one don't lay it out, but I have seen it in a previous one where a day was defined as 9am to 8:59am the next day. Here the rules just lay out the begin and end of the whole week.

 

Cheers,

Ray

@mi4090 and @ralmon .  Ralmon's reply is correct.   A day is defined as 9am to 8:59am the next day.

@AARPTeri 

Why was I able to submit Free Method on 2/5 @ 2:04a CT, but not before?

So if I play after 12a ET on 2/6 it still counts as 2/5 Free Entry method? 

 

Also, after using Free Method without winning, why does the system allow you to play again using points?  Shouldn't that be faded out after playing once for the day?

 

@ralmon 

Ray was able to submit Free Entry on 2/5 after 2a CT and not before, very strange😕
