Trivia questions can be found inside the featured shows. For instance, click on American Idol and you'll see trivia listed right there.

Yes. I have been known to check into a show, grab my phone, and head to the grocery store. Since you don't need to keep the app open, there's no way for them to know if you are really watching the whole show. They can only make sure that you check-into one show at a time. And I've always gotten my points.

The only caveat is if the app kicks you out of a show. But since you're at home you can always turn on the tv and check back in. It's only ever kicked me out while I was still home. But if this happened while I wasn't home, I wouldn't be able to check back in.

[QUOTE=DisMN;44037380]FYI while this is a fun app just beware that it's a seriously huge data hog! LOL

To those with questions I've had tons too but am just clicking on various buttons and sliding my finger across other areas.......am seeing clarity the more I play.

But remember, if you have limited data this will suck it all up![/QUOTE

We do have limited data, but if I am checking in from home (where we use our wifi and it doesn't "cost" us data), then is it still a data hog? I don't understand why it would be using data except for the checking in, unless I am missing something. I watch a TON of TV, and would love to earn for it, but didn't download it yet since this comment made me nervous!

My phone is defaulted to use Wi-Fi first, so when I'm at home I don't eat into my data plan.

As long as you do this, you should be fine.

Don't forget to check on to a Cspan channel before you goto bed and rack up a few hours worth of points. The longer the show the more the points. I just redeemed my first B&N gift card because I wanted to verify it works.

It's fun! I started on Saturday morning and have no access during the work day and am up to 19000 today!

You can only check in for DVR'd shows using the audio recognition feature. But that feature is not working right now. They told me, by e-mail, they would have that fixed soon.

If you read their FAQ, it explains that you can't manually check in to DVR shows.

If you redeem for B&N giftcards you can only store 3 in your online account. I don't know what would happen if you printed them out and took them in to the store. Just in case you were thinking of saving them up in your online account to get a nook

I downloaded the app when the OP mentioned it and have gotten three $5 gift cards so far (1 a day). I redeem the points right when I get to 7500 points and save them to my online Target e-gift card account. You can then combine your cards into one and bring your mobile device to the store for the cashier to scan. Worked fine yesterday.

I'm not going to sit on my points, as some folks on SlickDeals have had their Amazon dollars disappear. Just FYI. It's best to save your codes right away to the appropriate company's website.

I earned enough points by last night so I cashed in for a $10 itunes gift card! Loaded it right into my Itunes account! I am also not going to hoard my points. I plan on cashing in when I get enough for something.

Ok, so I see how you log into a show but how do you find the trivia and trailers. The app is a bit confusing to me.

Also how do manually check into a show that you are watching?

Any help would be appreciated!

of the screen it says, "what's on" so click on that. It will show you a program and how many points you get when you watch it. If you click on it sometimes underneath is says to watch a trailer or answer questions. After you do them click "back" and scroll sideways to the next show. (There are 20 I believe.)

Also when I went into my history of watched shows (click on the little person icon at the top) and clicked on those shows I found some other trivia.

I had a few hours worth last night but today I have nothing. Can someone tell me if there is a way to get it to refresh? Or do I just have to wait?

Have fun! I got 7,000 pts in one day w/out a lot of effort.
