Secret bonus code won’t work

Post by Yssimnar » 02 Aug 2018, 20:45

My daily entry emails give me a bonus code, but when I enter the code it doesn’t work. The page will refresh and that’s it. I recently changed my official email address on my account and the secret code is being sent to the old address. Could this be my problem?

This is most likely the reason.

Any idea how to change it? When I go into my profile, the new email is showing. Where else do I need to change it?

It is! I found the code in my new email spam box. Once I used it instead of the code from the old email address, it worked! Then in unsubscribed from the list on my old email because Scott says that unopened emails mess up his statistics in some way.

I've never had a problem with the BOTD bonus code and enjoy the opportunity to use it for an added entry point. Thanks for including it in the BOTD emails!
