I tried it for the first time yesterday and it didn't credit. I tried again today, and it did. I don't know what I did differently though. Maybe there are just glitches because it's new  :dontknow: .

I did it yesterday early morning and got no credit, decided to try it again yesterday late afternoon, and gave me an error. Now I'm about to try it this morning and tells me my IP already clicked in the allowed timeframe and that I have to wait until late afternoon  ???
Why would it block me from the offer for 24hrs when I haven't even gotten credit for it? Furthermore, why do the blocking starts from the click I did in the late afternoon which was an error, and not the one in the morning? Either click shouldn't have counted anyways, because first one didn't credit me, and second one gave me error. I think the offer should be clickable and doable as long as you have not received credit; once you receive credit, the 24hr waiting period should begin. Hopefully they can get it sorted out.
You can only click once per 24 hours regardless of whether you actually search for airfare and click through to a partner site.  I know this isn't ideal but it's not our policy.  There were a couple hiccups with this offer starting out, but from now on you should be able to earn credit reliably.

Hi Admin..
I have to tell you I have done everything I know to do with that offer and it will not credit me. Funny though that it let's me know I have already clicked on the link so it is registering that. I've cleared my cache and cookies, used FF then IE and back again to FF. I leave the windows I've clicked through on open for hours.  I've tried people's advice and clicked on several links..nothing. I believe today is my 6th 7th try.
I don't know what else I can do.  
Any suggestions? :D

Ditto. I did it last night, like 5 times maybe, clicking on different offers and different banners, letting the time go longer. Researching for the flight info on the banner link, I give up! Its only worked for me once, I do it on FF.

This offer has frustrated me from the beginning but I'm still trying to figure out why the 5 times I've tried it it's only credited for me once.  Yesterday is understandable because I forgot and didn't switch browsers but I'm going to try it in Internet Explorer because in Google Chrome it only has worked once out of 3 times and the other 2 times I did it it's been in Firefox which obviously doesn't work either.  I talked to someone else who has done it each time in Internet Explorer and credited for her each time.  So I'm going to definitely have to go to IE for this one.

UPDATE!: I used IE browser and it credited after 10 mins so it was definitely the browsers giving me the problems which I figured it was, glad to know I can get it credited now no problems. :)

I've been doing it every other day to avoid problems with the 24 hr rule.  Can't always remember when I did it last (time wise).

Good to know that they tell you that you have to wait X hours before you try again -- then I can try it every day.

Why did they cancel it?! I hope FC gives us some kind of explanation, or finds another daily offer to replace it with. It was REALLY nice getting a little extra every day.

I just tried this offer today for the first time after just reading about it on another post, and it didn't credit. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? I clicked on the link, entered a search, and then chose Orbitz to find my flight. I don't get it  ???

I always click on 2 or 3 of the results and always choose different locations each time. Be sure to clear your cookies and cache before trying it (I even close out my browser and reopen it when I'm using Opera). It has credited for me every time here at FusionCash, usually takes 10-15 minutes, tho'. Good luck to you and all!  :wave:

Unfortunately we're short on details.  It may or may not come back in the future.

I did the offer several times only in Firefox and I believe I was credited each time, I always forget to go back and check. It was(is) a bit slow to post or credit often times I was done with what I was going to do for the day and I only found out when I got an email indicating I had received credit for an offer from FC. I can't think of why some would have trouble and others not, but it may be similar to some of the surveys or videos from time to time, just hit and miss. Clearing cache and cookies might help or switching browsers but if you have done that the cookies in the new browser probably also need to be cleared? I am not that techno savvy so I can not say for sure, but it would have been worth a try, I did not realize it was no longer around, but since it paid pretty well, there may have been a bigger response than had been originally expected. We can always hope for it to return or that FC will find something just as good for us to do.

Maybe cheapflights was paying too much for the clicks--if they bring it back i think everyone would be willing to do it for 2-5 cents--doesn't have to be ten cents.

you need to make all your clicks searches and never close pages keep for minutes so you should get credited unless if there is a real technical problem :icon_rr: :icon_rr: :icon_rr:
