Spent 200 lingots! How? Unlocked achievements?

I received an Achievement Unlocked, Big Spender and I spent 200 lingots message. What does that mean, what did I purchase and how did I purchase it? I spent nothing.

I'm pretty sure the spending is cumulative... i.e., in all your time on Duolingo you have spent 200+ lingots.

Did you purchase something recently? A few months ago?

It counts every time you do buy a double or nothing or if you purchase a streak freeze or weekend amulet. I do not know if it counts when you give Lingots away to others.

No, it doesn't count when you give lingots away. (Finding myself on 195/200, I tried this yesterday, and it didn't work!) But today, I bought a new double-or-nothing, and that did work.

I think I achieved that with the streak freezes and double or nothing option.

I just got 'achievements' and this unlocked automatically; I'm not sure what counts as 'spending'; I presume it counts giving away lingots, too, as the average user with a single course would be hard-pressed to spend 200 lingots in the store (unless repeatedly buying streak freezes, in which case this achievement is a bizarre incentive!)

It's bizarre anyway: Giving lingots to other (which I would call “spending”) does not count but buying 7-day wagers (which I would call “investing”) does.

It's saying I spent 200 lingots The only thing i bought was one streak freeze. Is there any way to see what it thinks I spent them on?

I have 478 lingots but I am not going to spend 200 of my lingots I am going to save my 478 lingots for something else but not for the big spend achievement
