Q:Regarding the new 1000 points for a song offer, apparently you can only get the points when you match a song now. The "Download on iTunes" button (link) does not work on previously matched songs in our music list. At least that's what seems to be the case for me. Have you found this? On previously-matched songs, an error comes: "Unable to get this track from iTunes, please try again later." I know it is available on iTunes because I matched it from iTunes originally. I've not asked Viggle yet.
Q:First of all, thanks for your awesome website. I often find answers here when I have questions. I've stuck with Viggle through all the upheaval, but now 3 of 4 accounts in our home are getting the "too many devices error". I reported one to Viggle last week, but haven't got anything but the canned e-mail so far. Two more accounts errored out tonight. I know others are having the same issue. If you talk to your contacts, can you ask them about this? I'm close to the end with Viggle.
The “canned” emails happen. They’re simply to acknowledge that your email was received. They are working on the issue, according to their Twitter. We’ve not talked to our contact about it since sometime last week, just before it started up in a big way over the weekend. We do know they told us that users should email Viggle about it. Tweets or Facebook notes won’t cut it as a support ticket.
Q:Have you been getting a lot of server errors over the past 24hrs? My wife and I can't seem to check into anything today
We’ve actually gotten no errors whatsoever.
Q:Are you getting the bonanza of Lexus +150 commercials too? At 9:30pm I had already maxed out my 6000 daily points! Woohoo! Thanks for all you do for us!
We’ve not gotten much in the app, but have gotten the 4 that have a bonus attached (as a promotion).
The wife and I have been in the market for a new camera. Thanks to Viggle and Shopkick BB cards (and a huuuuge assist to ViggleTips), bought a kickass camera and bag. With a sale at BB and the gift cards, only paid about $100 out of pocket.
Sadly, this will probably be my last Viggle item (have bought a few other things over the past 18 months or so). I still Viggle, but I’ve gone from a loyal, 12-hour per day/hit every bonus show/play Viggle Live every second/watch every video Viggler to about 2-3 hours during prime time, and most nights I probably don’t even hit that. I just don’t have the time to sit on my phone for 3 hours a day hoping I check it during the 2 minutes a spotlight award is available. When gift cards were available all the time for a reasonable price, I could estimate and say “ok, in 3 weeks I’ll have enough for a BB gc” and that was a nice goal to shoot for. Now…well quite frankly I have better things to do with my time than waste 3 hours of my life in a Hunger Games situation for a potential $5 gift card.
Still follow you guys, but my Viggle interest has waned and I don’t see it coming back. But hey, new camera! And seriously, thanks for the help.
Best. Freebie. Ever.
Tuesday, March 11, 2014 - Bonus Point Shows
Viggle is working on those who have hit the “too many devices” message. In fact, their peeps worked over the whole weekend to clear up accounts. If you’ve submitted an email about it, they’ll get to ya. (You could try tweeting them as a follow up, but up to you.)
The Award Season Quest is finally over. Points are due by March 19, 2014. Also, the set of Lexus ads & the related bonuses end March 16, 2014, so get them now if you haven’t already.
Some things to note, if you missed ‘em yesterday:
- Get +1000 points for buying a song.
- Viggle no longer compatible with iOS 5 (it’s an Apple push, don’t gripe at Viggle about it). Here’s a list of iOS 6 & 7 compatible devices.
- iOS users update your app to 1.6.5.
- Fandom catalog is back! Some merchandise in the regular Products section is distributed throughout the Fandom levels (a new catalog every 5 Fandom levels) at significantly lower points (1 example: The Keurig Brewing system is 100K cheaper).
Everyone: Don’t forget your 20 songs. Toggle to MUSIC on Check-In, and match 20 songs, at +25 each, for a fast +500. One song, one time. Buy a song with the link provided and earn +1000!
Commercial Check-In: There’s a new group of Lexus commercials that give a one-time +200 each. Anyone can check into them, and you can find the audio to all of them here. This runs until March 16, 2014. The ad’s names are:
- "Ansel Adams"
- "Shut Up And Drive"
- "Verses and Flow" (this one is tricky, but use the 2nd half; it works better)
Rewards Spotlight: Buffalo Wild Wings $10 gift card for 20,000 points.
- Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2X) - ABC +
- Pretty LIttle LIars (2X) - ABC Family +
- The Originals (2X) - CW +
- Glee (2X) - Fox +
- The Voice (2X) - NBC +
- New Girl (2X) - Fox +
- Real Housewives of New York City (2X) - Bravo +
- (9:31) Trophy Wife (2X) - ABC +

# - Answers to this movie are on our ViggleLive page.
+ - Play along with ViggleLive for bonus points.
Use our hashtag #VTFandom on twitter to ask for & gain Fandom followers. You can also pop into our chat room to do the same.
Use the hashtag #VTGCswap to find other users to swap gift cards with. We will facilitate the swap if you need us to.
Q:Any word on when the next update will be? It will cause me to close my account, I use an iPad 1. So thanks for all you do, I laughed, I cried (mUch more laughing than crying), loved your witty reponses, but I could not have done it without you!!
No word on it yet, so for now, you’re good. You can still Viggle on your phone or iPod touch.
Q:I'll add to the "I'm not trying to hate" theme... YES, I'm giddy with joy when I get a gift card (during those stupid less than 5 minute Spotlight time windows). I "earned" nearly $400 last year. HOWEVER, if you crunch the numbers, 1,000 points is only worth about 40 cents. I'm always impressed with your humor/patience when people ask questions about missing points. If someone asked me about missing 100 points, i'd say, "SERIOUSLY, it's worth 4 cents, get over it!". You're an angel!
Well shucks, thanks.
But if you only knew how we yell & cuss at the screen on occasion, you’d see that our halo is hanging firmly on a horn. ;-)
Q:Howdy Ho, I was wondering if you could show me what's in the level 20 rewards catalog. I want to redeem the iLuv speaker and alarm but I have been stuck at level 19 for almost 2 months! I just want to know if its in the catalog so I can wait for my fandom to move millimeter by millimeter.
That is not on level 20.
Level 20 has
- Samsung Wifi BluRay player 233,300
- PUMA Vortice Headphones 240,500
- Keurig Brewing System 404,800
Q:Wow, did you see the SONY X headphones in the Music section of the rewards? I want that so badly. What products have you redeemed for recently?
Q:I'm not trying to hate, but is it really worth it to buy a song for a dollar just to earn 1,000 Viggle points? Way to make myself sound like a cheapskate..., but seriously
If it’s not worth it, don’t purchase a song.
For those that purchase most of their music digitally, this is a great bonus to purchase it through Amazon or the iTunes store via Viggle, & earn some more points.
Need Points? Buy A Song!
The Fandom reward section is back. Many of the merchandise in the Products section is also in Fandom, but at significantly lower costs. (Example, the Kuerig is 100K less on Fandom level). The catalog is sure to grow & change overtime, so keep an eye on the levels you are able to view, and aim for something.
Also, if you want +1000 quick points, then it’s relatively easy, and might only cost you 99 cents, on average.
"How so, awesome guy at ViggleTips?" you ask.
Well, when you check into Viggle MUSIC, and you match a song, there will be a link to buy that song, and you can also earn +1000 with your purchase. This most likely took effect this afternoon, once the Fandom catalog showed up again (ie: system update).
We say that because we are cruising songs we’ve already matched, and don’t see the link on the song’s page. But people matching songs this afternoon are seeing it.
