Least Worst March '22 Extra Credit

The least worst options for me are:

 

Amazon.com Gift Card

22,000 Points
$5 Value

and

Papa John’s Gift Card

13,000 Points
$5 Value
 
I'd really rather have a Domino's instead of Papa Johns
like last month's Domino's.  I got one last month. 
I'll be using the Amazon right away.
 
So, these are my least worst choices for this Extra Credit
Rewards month.

None of the awards have worked for us all day (multiple browsers, multiple platforms, multiple accounts).  I can get to the redemption page but there is no button for "redeem", even for Krispy Kreme which I know is not sold out.  Those usually take days to give away.

At three AM EST, the extra credit section rewards are just spinning for me.   You can do the activities but not see the rewards.  In case anyone else is having the same problem, use the search and "for points" and you can see the Amazon one.   I have not seen the Papa John one yet but still have one section of activities to go.   Not worth it for $5.   I did spring for the Amazon as $5 pays for a cheap Kindle book.  Also seeing Ulta and Krispy Kreme.

Glad other people didn't have problems but I got multiple error messages (video not available) and redirects to other things. Fortunately I was able to get the Amazon and Papa John's cards as well as the Chili's one. All of which I'll use. I guess I shouldn't complain about $15 in free stuff but they've had so many instant wins (that I haven't won) for $15 that they should offer more $10 ones here.

Hi Michelle: Did not see Chili's or Krispy Creme but like you we, (my DH) & I snap up Amazon and we got 2 Papa John's because there was nothing left. Wish it had been Domino's like Andrew said. Don't think he is a real fan of Papa John's either. Maybe I can gift ours to some lucky individual.  Just Saying

I only had to take one lesson twice (a quiz).

Overall, not the mess it has been in many

prior months.

Yeah, the March Extra Credit "Rewards" sure aren't anything to write home about. Sadly, Points-Only Gift Cards of $10 or more are basically a thing of the past.

 

But I was surprised that all of the Extra Credit "lessons" displayed properly from the get-go -- for the first time in several months -- and I didn't have to take any of the quizzes or watch any of the videos twice (or more) in order to qualify.

Sad to say Gary but it was not in the cards for me again this month. 😫 Took almost two hours to fight my way through all the extra credit lessons and then missed out on GAP, and Krispy Creme. 😠 😡 Grrrr.....

Got it; add $5 to my Amazon balance.

 

My Trivia: the largest and 'best' first of the month redemption '21 Extra Credit I ever got was a - $25 FandangoNow for 38,000 points last year May 2021; eight days later my second one for 40,000 points = very much appreciated. I hope to see FandagoNow again. 😁  🤞

Glad to see another Fandango Fan and I was glad to snap up a few FandangoNow GC's last year myself.

Sorry to say there is no more FandangoNow. Purchased, merged whatever with VUDU. They will redeem the FandangoNow GC's on there site. Fandango for movie tickets still around and still working fine.

👍  I've already used up my $50 FandangoNow/ Vudu for some nice movies to keep; but on June 1, 2021 they had 'Fandango' - plain for another 40,000 points - at that time it appeared/ I believed I could use it with FandangoNow/ Vudu but no it's just for the retail movie ticket division. Talk with their customer service - no go - oh well - lesson learned. 😢

Got Amazon as well, not bad.

In February, I did not even bother with the Extra Credit as there was absolutely nothing I could use. I miss the happy months (so long ago) when Target and Walmart were also offered.

What I would like to see is these "extra" credits actually be "extra" in addition to the three month redemptions.

You are so right Karyn, EXTRA TROUBLE is all we are getting, Nothing good about that

Hey Lucy,

How about "Extra Regret-It" for the extra

time and $5 points only rewards?  It has

a nice ring to it.

I know, I know, I'm think I'm funny.
