Strange sweeps entry count

@AARPTeri@AARPCaroline 

 

I entered 5 entries each into the Luck of the Irish, and Step Out In Style sweeps. It appears I only got 1 entry counted, and it does not let me enter up to 5.

 

Is this a known issue? I hadn't noticed this behavior before, but it's hard to check without a functioning transaction history. Could one of you AARP masters please check for me? Thanks.

 

Cheers,

Ray

The ability to enter five sweepstakes entries is still broken.

Tried it out, fix works. Thanks!

I'm just realizing that if I try to enter 5 entries then I get one entry and it's done.

We have to enter one entry at a time from the start, huh?

Anyway, I am only interested in the one sweep right now.  The others just don't appeal to me because I am unsure of their true value (vs. their taxable value), or, I don't see them as much of a prize to begin with.

Thanks

@andrewtoo

Yes, I think @AARPTeri  meant 5 times a single entry.

 

Makes it tricky to test if it's fixed, b/c if you enter more than one and it fails, you forfeit more entries for that day. Interesting bug, that one.

 

Cheers,

Same here, I guess I try to enter 4 more times.

Thanks for the heads up!

It happened again!

 

I entered and had 5 entries confirmed.

But in the Redemptions list, it only shows 1 entry each the last 2 days.

There is something wrong with the sweeps entry accounting.

 

I am told incorrectly that I entered 5 when it only enters 1. We really need a total entries display somewhere. At least, only 1 entry worth of points is subtracted. Now I'm not confident whether I've ever been entered in the sweeps at all.

 

Lol - I demand a recount! Smiley LOL

@ralmon   Thanks for reporting this - it is a bug that we are currently tackling.

 

Right now users can get all 5 sweeps entries by entering 1 entry 5 times unfortunately.  But we do expect a quick fix to this.

Thanks, I'll have to try that tomorrow. The sweeps won't let me enter anything more today, as if I already had 5 entries.

 

Cheers,
