Me too. I thought it was something I was doing wrong. I wonder if some computer geek somewhere has figured out a program to generate winning numbers and is using them without the actual button.

I'm sure they have unfortunately...I had initially thought it was someone at our local store but if its everywhere its more then that. It's sad, doing stuff like that will ruin it for us in the future.

My DD came home with 2 buttons last night. One was a $5 gift card. They emailed it to us today.

My DD had three buttons in the last two days that have come up as "used". She was reading on the JCPenney Facebook page that many more people have been experiencing this problem with codes being "used". Some people have posted that all the buttons they have entered have come back as "used". There are many different theories posted on the Facebook page ranging from hackers to JCPenney employees using the buttons and then putting them back in the baskets.

My mom, cousin and I did really well. We have been entering buttons almost every day. We have gotten enough for:
- 5 sterling silver necklaces (used two $10 and 3 $5) Paid $1.60 each for three of the necklaces using the $5 coupon, $3 for one using a $10 and $5 for one using a $10.
- five pair of fleece PJ pants (used $5 coupon, paid $1 each)
- a pair of flannel PJ pants and a long sleeve kids shirt, used $10 certificate, paid nothing.
- a kitty hat with the built in scarf mittens (used $10 coupon, paid 50 cents)
- eighteen pairs of kids socks for $4 (used a $10 coupon)
- adult socks (used a $10, don't know how much they were before, I wasn't there)
- a puppy purse for $2 after $10 coupon that my DD had been wanting
- a few quick dry exercise shirts for under $5 each with $5 coupon (they were on clearance)

That is what I can think of off the top of my head. We have spent a lot of time at JCP this month. My daughter is having a great time choosing buttons and asks to enter them every morning.

I love this promo! I'm up to 145.00 so far I have had a few say the code was already used so I just throw that one out and use another. I even had one that had no code, not even a sticker for the code I have tons of buttons though, so if one doesn't work it's no big deal. My Penneys is only giving out one per person. I saw a guy at the photo studio with a big tub on buttons. I asked if I could have one. He said I could take all I wanted, that he hated the promo! Apparently he was hacked because he works for Lifetouch, not JCP, but since he worked IN a JCP he was not allowed to play and they were making him give out buttons. He seemed pretty disgruntled about it but it was awesome because I got to stock up on buttons

Love collecting the buttons and love this promo. I have gotten at least $200.00 in coupons (one for $50.00 - othesr $5.00 and $10.00). I have been able to purchase alot of gifts and things for myself.

I love all the different buttons. I am collecting them after I use them. I purchased a nice red stocking and am pinning one of each button to the stocking. I will take a photo and post in a few days. I heard there are 50 different buttons - I think I have about 42 different designs. I am hoping to find one of each.

Only a few days left to this promo. Good luck everyone.

Linda

There are 50. You can google to see all of the different designs. Once I determined which buttons we were missing, I took a picture of each with me into the store (on my phone) and the awesome folks back in the salon helped us dig out the ones we didn't have yet. So now we have a complete set! Maybe your local store would be willing to do the same?
