    Try clicking on the x to delete the "Wow, out of prizes, try again later" window... then hit the F5 key on your keypad to refresh the page. Keep doing this until the wheel finally spins. It may take 6 to 12 refreshes until it spins, but it always does... eventually.

    This worked for me on the website -- six tries later I got 10 points. I'm definitely not going to bother till it returns to just working again, but was curious.

    Useless info from Alex as usual. May is not among the months listed, yet the game works...OCCASIONALLY.

    Also sometimes the points are available immediately and sometimes they’re pending.

    Basically, nothing in that PM is correct.

    I received the same PM and will just say that Tracfone Rewards may work in any day ending in a y and it may not.

    I will only say that the phone service itself is quite fine for me and can be a great value especially when the rewards program works. And chatting about it with you wonderful people is amusing too.

    This morning I noticed a message on the Tracfone Android app that said something to the effect that the Spin the Wheel was running until May 14. Of course, spin still results in the Wow message.

    I had a 25 point spin win go into the pending column. All the other spin wins went directly into available.

    I disabled private messaging after getting two unsolicited PM's from that loser. Why isn't he banned for such behavior? If he has something to say, let him post it publicly for all to see and scrutinize.

    Most of his messages are to contact customer service if you are having problems... yeah, that works so well why didn't I think of that?

    Like posted, it takes me six tries (I use the website, spin, get message all prizes out, refresh, spin, repeat 5x more) before I finally get any points, and so far it's been 5-10. I guess being a TracFone user means we are just gluttons for punishment anyway. I did win 4500 when this wheel first resurfaced so that's why I keep coming back for more....

    I got a 1000 spin on one of my TF accounts. My other accounts I got no spin even after a dozen refreshes. I'll try again tomorrow.

    So I opened up Chrome's Developer tools and as expected, when you get the 'prizes out message' that's because the underlying website reports a 500 error (for those who don't know, that's the general 'error' message when trying to do something). Refresh, again get the error, again get the message. Eventually you don't get the error, and then you actually get points (again, for me its always been 5-10).

    So as I posted in another thread, there's a hidden 'spin' up front to not get an error from the underlying service, and then after that you actually get to spin and see if you win anything.
