Actually Idol is 8-10 tonight, not sure what it usually is.

Thank you for all the info, I was able to fill out my profile.
Ooops. My bad. I was in such a hurry to watch Grey's Anatomy at 9pm that I didn't even notice Idol went until 10pm!

2nd time posting - hope this one works - DIS acting up

I've been enjoying this app but like others have mentioned, I hope it's not crashing and burning already. I tried redeeming another $5 Target gift card and it kept telling me I needed to log in. I knew I was already logged it so I decided to log out and then back in to see if that would work. Once I logged in again, the Target gift cards were gone (which is why it gave me the "error" message of needing to log in). I noticed that Starbucks is also no longer there. I sincerely hope they bring back Target.

I agree with others as well not to save up the points - for reason's just like this. I knew I was going to cash out at every 7,500 but alas, no Target now.

I know they clearly are having issues (as others have mentioned) but if the options dwindle down to merchants I don't use then it really won't be as much fun. Naturally I was aiming for the Target gift cards to save for buying a Disney gift card or something towards the trip. Feels like I'm doing something good - you know and having fun at the same time!

Let's hope they get the kinks worked out ASAP and bring back Target and at least Starbucks too!

Thanks for all the great suggestions you guys have had. I logged in to the Today show yesterday morning and it was on from 7am-11am so that was a nice 4 hours but today the app said I earned points right after 8am so it either kicked me out or it wasn't reading that it was on until 11am today?

Thanks,
Heather

I tried

two different things today and got kicked out of both of them after an hour.

I really want the amazon GCs so I'm going to wait a bit, but I'm scared this is going to crash very soon.

Heather, Viggle has been known to kick out every now and then. It's done it to me, and I just check back in.

I also watch the Today Show with Viggle. I'm on the east coast, so for me the Today Show airs from 7 - 10am. (This is the HD channel which does not air that 4th hour with Kathy and Hoda.) But there's a small catch. On the tv guide the Today Show is listed twice; 7am - 9am, and then again 9am -10am. So I need check in twice for the Today Show.

Check your guide and see how the Today Show is listed. Then you'll know if you need to check in more than once during the show.

With following the tv guide, I've always gotten all the points for the Today Show.

Funny you mention the Target GCs are gone. Amazon gift cards ran out first, so someone got the idea to buy Target GCs, go to Target and purchase Amazon GCs with the Target GCs! So they posted this on Viggle's FB page, and before you know it, they run out of Target GCs. Amazing!

It'll be interesting to see if Viggle brings back Target or Amazon gift cards. Just within the past few days they added CVS gift cards, which is new. Wonder if that was a replacement for Amazon gift cards?

How do you manually check into a show if the sound check in fails?

After the audio fails twice, something will pop up with a keyboard for you to enter the name of the show.

But sometimes the manual setting doesn't pop up. That's when you know it's impossible to check-in all together, and you should contact Viggle support.

All great suggestions! Luckily I haven't been kicked out of a show yet and I think it's because I'm on wi-fi and it's steady. I'm going to recheck my Today show listing just as you stated. I love the CSPAN slots as they tend to run for hours!!

I'm sure they got wind of the Amazon/Target cards like you said. I just hope they bring Target back but free is free so I'm aiming for a $10 iTunes now but would prefer putting it to better use.

I got kicked out at 8 am while watching the today show too It wouldn't let me check back in either, so I found a movie that was on for a few hours!

Ok, so those $15 gift cards do exist! I've heard people say, "There's a $15 gift card for Target and Chili's." But every time I looked in the rewards section I only see the $5 cards....Those $15 cards must go quick!!

I understand why though. Some of the offerings for the $5 gift cards are funny to me. When I saw the $5 card for Chili's I just thought that was silly. For a restaurant I would expect a higher denomination, so I'm glad to see they are offering $15 cards. Apparently others feel the same way....that's why they sell out so fast!

Hi all! I just started using this ap but wanted to mention to make sure to read the FAQs. Go under settings, and go to About Viggle. There is a section called "Viggle FAQs." One thing you may need to know is under "Viggle Rewards." Just touch a question and the answer will show up. The question is, "Is there a limit on the amount of Viggle rewards I can get?" The answer says, "Other than rewards you receive in sweepstakes or instant win games, you may not receive more than $550 in rewards in a calendar year." Just thought I would share for those of you that have already gotten to $100.
