I received an email from Gas Buddy letting me know 5000 pts were in my acct. That was back in June but they're still not there. What happened?

Thanks Tx for the helpful advice. Just moved from AB to BC & trying to find time & help to update & edit my info here also trying to get the hang if using this site.
Sarcasm from other posts sure doesn't help!

They only went to your ticket buying and if you bought tickets they are gone...Poof, lost in the lottery.

To get points you must do point earning activity. The most important of point earning is posting ACCURATE and properly time stamped prices for grades that are sold at a station. Points for first 5 prices.

You can also get points for reading news (first 5 news articles) from the front page (note, you do NOT need to put a comment in the news to get the points. Posting on News items should only be for substantive discussions), posting in forums for points (first 5 posts) and not true discussion should be in the JFF - Just for Fun category (such as this topic in JFF: OK

You can also get points for telling a friend but limited in number of friends you can tell for points.

Thanks for using this site and contributing so little in the past year CLS1949. The points you were given for doing nothing are available to purchase tickets to win the daily gas card drawing. They do not reflect in your points total.

Look under the Enter Draw link. The points were not added to your point total but was added to the number of drawing entries.

And thanks for all your contributions in helping your fellow GasBuddies. It looks like you may have reported 1 gas price in the 14 months that you have been here.
