I have entered 6 entries this week, but I am currently credited as having 0; has anyone else had this happen to them?

"I don't remember the exact date it changed, but GB now does daily drawings, not weekly."

The answer is right here.

the_otg:

"Same thing happens to me on consecutive days"

That's how it's supposed to work. You enter the drawing, which is held each day, and the next day, if you want to enter the new drawing, the drawing for that day, you enter again. Your entries don't carry over for consecutive days as they used to (when you could enter the drawing any time or multiple times during the week before the once-a-week-drawing was held.

In other words, if you want to enter today's drawing, and tomorrow's drawing and the drawing the day after tomorrow, you have to enter the drawing each of the three days, and after each day's drawing, your entry "disappears" because it's already been used.

Does that help answer your concerns?

Just a reminder that Gas Buddy now does a daily prize drawing (rather than a once-a-week drawing) which means that if you entered six prize entries earlier this week, your entries were used for previous daily drawings.

So, yes, this has happened to others.

They didn't disappear, they were used.

Could it be that the prize entries are showing how many you have entered for the current day??????
