When you registered after you picked your television provider, a screen came up that said enter your promo code. To get the bonus points you have to put in that promo code.


I did not get a promo code.

It's before you link to your account...when you register at the very beginning of the process. That is the only time to earn those bonus points. If you have already registered, but not yet linked your account, you can still link your account (and should) to earn the programming bonus points but you won't receive the signup to Viggle points.

Sorry if I didn't make that clear earlier, my mistake.

i honestly don't remember asking for a code when i registered but that doesn't mean i didn't miss it. i have linked and relined to my dtv account but the only bonus points i received were 200 which i believe others mentioned they had received.

Iceturkee,

Best just to rate the app and leave honest feedback. It could of got 5 stars, but I only gave it 3. It loses a star for not giving the bonus points when linking a DirecTV account. It loses another star for making checkins unreliable by requiring a clean audio clip rather than read the receiver off the network.

I know miso does this, but miso ALSO works with other providers by searching / typing in what you want to check in. Don't see why proven, possible technology can't be used for Viggle either. If you don't have DirecTV or your wifi is off, well then fail back to the audio clip. Miso fails back to typing in the show / movie. I understand the audio thing with Viggle so you can't say your watching something your not for free points, but reading the receiver is proof as well.

As far as the points go, I may try to delete it and re-register with a different email address.

I see quite a few reviews/ratings in the App Store from users that I recognize the names that are on this forum. :)

Oh well now all of a sudden I got 5000 directv welcome points. Thanks to whoever fixed my account! Could of been my review, a lurker here or just a system delay that made it take a few days to add.

They should handle check-ins like Miso. Look for receiver via home wifi and see what channel is tuned. This would be 100% accurate as opposed to jacking up the TV volume and telling everyone to be quiet for 20 seconds.


While I liked the Miso check in technique on my wife's iPhone and iPad, for some reason it didn't work the same on my Android phone.

I'm glad that Viggle does check ins the way it does. That way, it's still easy for me to check in to shows when I'm on the road or at my friend's house watching the game. Plus, they give bonus points for checking into commercials within shows (Dove commercial during last saturday's Texas/K state game). How could they do that if the check ins were done like Miso?

This is an older screen shot when 4,000 points were awarded...now it is 5,000. This is where the DIRECTV promo code goes. "DIRECTV"

I never saw a screen for a promo code, but after 1 week, I got the 5000 bonus points anyway so if you don't have them, just wait for it...

I keep waiting for Viggle to offer rewards that fall between 65,500 points and 375,000 points but it never happens. If they didn't offer their merchandise (who would ever want that stuff?) there'd be only a couple of rewards for over 20,000 points. If Viggle lasts the rest of the year I'll be surprised.

Did anyone win the 4,000,000 point cruise yet? LOL

So because they don't offer rewards between those 2 point ranges (as of now), they entire app will get canned? I highly doubt that. For me it's worth it just for the free cinema coupons. I like Viggle.

That's not why it will get canned. I just think that if it were successful there'd be more companies wanting to get involved.

Yes, just haven't figured out which week to go. ;) OK, didn't win the cruise, but I did redeem 600000 points for 2 of the Chili's $15 certificates. Not my favorite restaurant, but its decent. And for 90000 points, you could get $45 worth of certificates. Thats in between 65,500 and 375,000.

Your wait is over! You can now get a Viggle Vlanket for 80,000 points! Viggle's version of a snuggie, probably just what you have been waiting for. ;)

I'm going to redeem 62,500 for a $25 Lowes certiicate then I'll delete the app. My family is getting tired of me shushing them when I do my nerdy smartphone check in. haha

I havent been all that impressed with the prizes but I figure at some point they'll get better. A lot of my tv watching is by myself so I dont have to worry too too much about shushing the family.

What I find more frustrating is "Viggle Live". Playing the game and racking up points is cool, but it distracts from the show you are watching. Also, on big events (Oscars for example) it crashes and you end up with half the points you should have gotten.

You re right about playing Viggle Live during games being distracting. I only use it for games I'm watching just because its on. Then it makes it more interesting. For example, last season I used it for Thursday night NFL games with teams I had little interest in. And for a few college games, which I rarely watch.
