It is not a 150 max, it is a 150 minimum to stay gold.

FYI - Groupon codes expire 6 months after they are issued. I can't believe I missed this in the fine print of the e-mail.

Just a heads up for Republic Wireless users: Bing does NOT allow you to use your number to verify your account. I tried both the text option and the voice option, but both take you to an error page.

More and more ppl are using VOIP nowadays, even businesses. Don't understand why Bing doesn't allow it.

Just to give some people hope with the phone number thing.I have had 5 accounts (one for every one in my family) for about one year and all are the same home address and phone number.We use the same pc for all the accounts and have had no problems.We have now redeemed a couple Amazon gift card now by the same phone number and we have not had a problem yet.I will let you guys know if anything changes and they ban an account over the phone number.

Read back some and you can see people have that problem from time to time... it should pass in a day or so

I had to enter my phone number to redeem again today. When I got the text I typed the code and it didn't work- then I got four more code!

I typed the most recent code and that worked. But now I keep getting more verification texts from them! I'm up to 12 total. 

 

If you're planning on redeeming today, maybe hold off- unless you want a good laugh.

Try switching to image searches in bing when web searches are not giving credit.

It no longer accepts my cell number. I had to switch to my house phone. Let's see how long it is before they don't accept that either.

they try to block people outside the US (like me). They can detect if I am using a real mobile phone or not. So I cannot use an US text message service online. I am already looking for a workaround.

I sometimes have problems with searches. Some days only searches using images only count. Also, sometimes the mobile searches don't count at all for any type of search. Seems to mosty happen on those double credit days.

Try switching from Wifi to 4G or vice versa. That tends to work for me.

Tried using the same cell as last time to redeem and it's not working. Getting the "Sorry..." msg. This is getting ridiculous.

To update people on my earlier post.I have reached my first problem.I redeemed a Amazon $5 on 5/18/14 using my home phone number which is a land line and has been my number listed on my account since I signed up.Then when I went to redeem another yesterday it gives me this message

Sorry, we can't complete this order. Please make sure you're entering a mobile number or non-VoIP home or work phone.

I think this was the first of my family's accounts that tried to redeem a second time using the new phone code process.

I was wondering if anyone has successfully done two redemption using the new phone code process and using the same number?
