I think the problem was with a specific BK ad that you had to scroll through and then be awarded 10pts. The problem was that people were just swiping through and accumulating 1000's of points. According to Viggle the ad was removed.

Sometimes I think Viggle is testing us when there are tons of ads out there! It's all about moderation. I've hit that 25 point BK ad 10 times in a row. Never been flagged or banned.

The people who got banned regarding that 10 point BK ad were hitting it hundreds of times in a row! Some were accumulating about 3,000 points off that ad....that equals 50% of the daily limit. Of course that would flag.

For anyone really concerned, just hit it once or twice. That would not flag at all.

Thanks everyone, I'll give a few of them a try and let you know if I get banned when I try to cash out for BB GC. Now lets hope the BB GC stay around for a few days so I can get one.

i thought i'd share this with everyone on here...

today ebates is doing 13% cash back in a bunch of stores for their birthday. gap and old navy are included in this!

i checked out old navy's sales and they are running a baby & kids sale with a coupon code for an additional 15% off. also if you haven't signed up for their emails yet, you can get 20% off your purchase instead.

if you spend $63 then apply the 20% off, your order will come to $50.40 (eligible for free shipping), then apply viggle's old navy gift cards (i believe you can use up to 5, right?), you only have to pay $.40, and then you will get back $6.55 through ebates!

(i didn't include tax because clothes aren't taxed here in jersey)

I agree. Also, the click through BK ad got people banned because they accumulated points too quickly, like in a flash. If you watch the new ad in its entirety, you should be fine. It's something Viggle did to prevent people from skipping ads. I never seem to get more than ten ads in a row anyway. I think possibly ads phase out as you use the app longer. I'm at 3 months now.

I'm hoping BB gift cards will stay around a lot longer than that! Since Viggle doesn't seem to be bringing back Sephora, my DH and I decided to save for BB cards....I want to buy a camera for our upcoming trip.

Both DH and I have Viggle accounts. In about 7 days we'll be ready to cash out $50 in Best Buy cards! Hope that reward sticks around!

By the way, I don't know how many people here were cashing out for Sephora cards, but this is the longest they have been out of stock. And with the addition of new rewards, it seems that Sephora cards aren't coming back. Maybe I'm just not being patient enough, who knows. But I've been getting the run around with Viggle every time I ask about Sephora....

Nope, I've been able to check into shows for me and DH's account. Are you checking into stuff that's on tv, or shows that you've recorded? I only ask because there are times when I'm trying to check into recorded shows, and nothing will register. Then I'll wait a few hours, try again, and then all the sudden it works.

Ok, I just signed up with viggle a few minutes ago. Do I need to keep the app open the entire time the show is on in order to get the points or does it automatically here it or what? I downloaded it onto my DD's ipod and it does go into sleep mode when not in use does that hinder anything?

I am still having problems with my app crashing everytime I come across an ad..if I uninstall it and reinstall it, will I lose all of my points so far? I've gotten a good start and I'd prefer not to cash them in yet.

No, once you check into the show, it assumes that you watch the show until the end or until you check into a different show.

No, you won't lose anything. I've had to uninstall and reinstall many times!

ETA: Prior to doing that, the first thing I do is a "hard reset." Turn off your device all the way, turn back on and open Viggle.
