    Woohoo~!! Not only is it Bonus Punch Monday, but the Buy-one-get-one-for-99-cents deal is still going! Just put two games in your cart and enter the code 99CENTS, and you'll end up with FOUR punches for your trouble! Happy bounce

    Thanks for letting us know the 99 cent code still worked! I just used it! I wouldn't have bothered but for the extra punches.

    I haven't bumped this in a while, so 'tis about time to do so~

    I just checked, and the Collector's Edition sale is still running -- use the code COLLECTOR to get CE's for $9.99 each.  There's also the bundle deal running, and a new Catch of the Week, so plenty of choices~! Sunny

    Found this at The Pub:
    Jfog wrote:Just to let everyone know, BF has apparently stopped giving a Monday bonus punch if you purchase a game with a punch card credit. I found this information post on the Pond Friends forum:

    A member received this PM from a mod after protesting not getting a bonus punch
    [...] February 23, 2014 02:14 PM

    [...]

    I understand you did not receive a punch for Bluebeard's Castle: Son of the Heartless. You've come to the right place for help!  I'm sorry about any confusion, but the reason you did not get a punch on your Punch Card for that purchase is because you got that game with a Punch Card coupon code.
    Games purchased with a Punch Card coupon code are not eligible for punches. It has not always been this way, so I'm sure as a loyal member you would notice the change. This update went into effect on the 20th of this month.

    [...]

    Another member found this change in the rules posted on the BF site :

    Who is eligible?

    Everyone who purchase games is eligible to earn punches, but you must be an active member of Big Fish Game Club at the time of your 6th punch to get your Punch Card coupon code for a free game. To qualify, all games must be purchased on the same account, using the same email address.

    Punches cannot be earned for purchasing a Gift Certificate, additional Game Club credit, or redeeming a Punch Card coupon.

    This will change the way you manage your game purchases if you're still a member at BF.

    Hi All - Hope everyone is well and having a break from the weather.

    I was just at BF, used a PCC & only received ONE Bonus Punch also.  (The game page & demo says its 'Bonus Punch Monday' &  if I got the game I 'would'  receive a Bonus Punch but didn't.)  Am  getting ready to email BF about this now & will let you know.

    So you DID get a (single) punch for your PCC?

    By the way, it's nice to see you posting again, BFS! Sunny

    Yes I've known about this for a while. It really doesn't make financial sense for them to give you bonus punches when you're not spending $$.

    Hi Genki.  Thank you...have been sick with the flu for almost 2 months (DH & myself).  Am feeling human again finally. 

    Yes... I used a PCC today and received ONE Bonus Punch.  I just emailed BF CS,  said I purchased a game using a PCC, was only given one Bonus Punch (instead of two punches) as 'advertised', asked them to please correct this mistake & credit my account the Bonus Punch as clearly advertised.  Bonus Punch Mondays are 'still' advertised, so this would be 'false' advertising. When I clicked on 'send' it said "That's a tough question!  No answers were available in our help articles.  Your question has been submitted."   Am waiting on a reply from CS & will let everyone know exactly what BF says.  I declare, it seems like BF is 'intentionally' trying to make their customers mad....again!  I'm only a member at 'times', drop out until a sale is on, then rejoin back. I've done this since BF pulled the plug on the forums.

    Hi RMom.  Good to see you!  Your right...it doesn't make 'financial sense' for BF to give bonus punches when not spending money, but BF made those rules a long time ago, knew what they were doing, and are now changing their rules in 'mid-stream'.  Until the advertisments for bonus punch Mondays are changed, that is 'legally' false advertising.

    Seems that back on 2/20 BFG did away with giving regular punches when using PCC (see up top highlighted in yellow here BFG help ) but they chose to do it without notifying members Meh . You do get a "bonus" punch for using a PCC on Mondays......... for now. I'm sure they will do away with that without notification, too. They just seem to keep digging themselves a deeper ditch every time they decide to change something.

    Ohh, a familiar face!  Hi, jboliver! *wavies* Sunny  I don't want you to get overwhelmed with e-mails, so be sure to take a look at this thread:  How to Disable Auto-Watching of Topics

    Welcome to the posting ranks, and thanks so much for the input!

    Received a reply today from BF about Double Punch Mondays.  Their reply/explanation is below:

    "We are reaching out to customers who have contacted us about issues getting a Bonus Punch while purchasing a game with a Big Fish Game Club Monthly Punch Card coupon code.  We apologize for any confusion.  There were recent changes to the Big Fish Game Club Monthly Punch Card program.  Punches cannot be earned for redeeming a Punch Card coupon, buying a gift Certificate, or buying an additional Game Club credit.  Punch Card coupon redemptions are eligible for bonus punches during a Bonus Punch Promotion.  When a Punch Card coupon is used during a Bonus Punch Promotion 1 punch will be added".

    Using a Coupon Code:  For more information about the Punch Card and Bonus Punch Promotions please see the following help articles:

    Big Fish Game Club Monthly Punch Card

    Bonus Punch Promotions

    Sincerely,

    Big Fish Games Support Team


    That's the explanation for today anyway.  Were these 'recent changes' announced at BF?  I'm not there much anymore so don't know.  It sounds like there might be 'more' changes in the works the way this is worded.  I'm curious if everyone who contacted BF about the Bonus Punches received the same reply I did.   Who knows anymore.   Dunno

    Happy Gaming everyone!      Happy bounce

    Not just like it was before.  BEFORE we got a punch for buying a game with a PCC, PLUS a bonus punch (two punches for one code.)  Now it's no punch for buying a game, but we still get the bonus punch (one punch for one code.)

    Oh, okay. So, if we use a PCC anytime, we'll get a punch for it? Or is it only on Mondays?

    I'm so freakin confused.  Stars



    Never mind, I get it now.

    If you use a pcc on mondays, you get a single punch. Any other time, zip. Spend actual money and you get 2 punches (or 4 for CEs) on mondays, 1 (3) punches any other day.

    Thank you, JustTheFacts!

    lol, my mind was able to encompass the actual meaning of the written words rather than quickly glossing over them and not understanding what I'd just read.
