I bought the Double or Nothing and got the 7-day streak, but it won't give me my lingots.

7 days ago, I joined Duolingo and played for, like, 3 hours straight. In that time I bought the Double or Nothing but it's not giving me my lingots. Am I doing anything wrong? Do I have to wait till tomorrow? When I got the 50XP streak, it said '7 day steak' but when I checked the shop it said 'Day 6 of 7'. Hopefully I can get them and these 7 previous day weren't a waste of time. Can any one tell me why this is happening?

If you complete your daily goal and then buy a Double or Nothing, it won't count that day towards the Double or Nothing. You have to wait till tomorrow to get your lingots.

Thanks. That's probably why, then. :)

It says you are only on a 6 day streak right now... do it for one more day and then see if it works

To count the day that you buy it, you have to buy it before you meet your daily goal. If you didn't, then you will have to do it for another day. If it helps, I usually buy mine right after the other one is done... Congratulations on joining Duolingo!! I have found it very helpful, it just takes time! :)

Did you buy it right now? If so, even if you are an a seven day streak you need to go seven MORE days to get your lingots.
