Joy said that the only verification of entry you will get is the "Thank You" page. Unfortunately, the 50 entries are apparently not viewable in the mobile app and you will not get an email verification from what I understand so far. Seems a bit like "acceptance by faith" 😂 but the thank you screen was a relief.

I found that weird too! I was able to finally submit my "Free Entry" using the mobile app but after I clicked submit I got a pop up message saying that my "Free Entry" was submitted but will not be tracked on the mobile app.... which is weird because thats the only way you can see how many entries you have cause its not an available option when I'm using my laptop. So the app is the only way you can check your entries but our free entries wont be tracked on the mobile app. Make that make sense? LOL

I had to clear my paypal.com cookies, log in again, and then the button appeared at the very bottom of the page.

The trickiness seems to be that you scroll, scroll, scroll to the bottom of your page in the app, and it seems to hit the bottom of the page. Then if you give it one more scroll, even though you thought you hit the bottom... you get the entry.

Can I ask, how do you know you have got the 50 free entries? I clicked the enter button and then it came up with thank you you have been entered into the draw but its not showing my entries anywhere?

It's very confusing and mysterious. My understanding is you don't automatically win with every purchase, but are entered to win. Nevertheless, I did get an email saying I had won $25 last Tues. evening or early Wed a.m., and still haven't seen it show up in my account. I inquired with customer service, and was told, before making a Shutterfly purchase, it would be applied to the next order, but the entire amount went on my credit card. It appears this isn't real.

I'm using paypal anyway for some purchases, but I'm not going out of my way to do it for everything without an answer to what happened to the $25 I supposedly won.

I was getting the same loop, read someone else's post about scrolling all the way down, and realized that the banner for accepting or rejecting cookies was also all the way at the bottom. Once I got rid of the banner, I could see the entry option.
