    Yay! I JUST switched from a Galaxy Watch to Garmin about a month ago. Didn’t know about this challenge, but it was easy to join! Thanks!

    I join the challenge, then yesterday it was removed with no explanation. I had over 200,000 before the halfway date.

    How do you earn the 150 stars? Won’t transfer to my card.

      Hi Jamie! It looks like you’ll need to join each challenge. You can earn the 150 starts by following the steps listed through the link above. There are limited spots. Hope this helps!

    Same problem here. It simply doesn’t work

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SO sorry for any issues, Slade. It seems this has now ended. Hoping a similar offer pops up soon!

  6. Jodi Lucas

    Joined the challenge, completed it, and was awarded the badge. When I try to redeem the reward it says this offer cannot be validated 🙁

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Bummer! Sorry to hear that, Jodi. Hoping the next offer might be easier to snag. We’ll keep an eye out!
