Word of advice for any wannabe "Big Spenders"

For anyone who is trying to complete their Achievements, and is having trouble finding ways to spend 200 lingots, a word of advice: If you give lingots for comments, they do NOT seem to count toward that total. Take it from me, I learned that the hard way! Maybe because it's giving, not spending (and receiving goods in return)?

Para cualquiera que esté intentando cumplir sus Logros, y que le cueste trabajo encontrar maneras de gastar 200 lingots, un consejo: Si das lingots por comentarios, no parecen contar para ese total. Créeme, me lo aprendí por la manera difícil! Tal vez es así porque sea "regalar" no "gastar" (y recibir bienes en cambio)?

Saludos!

Buy a streak freeze use it next day. Buy weekend freeze. Buy double or nothing. In a few weeks you'll sum up 200 spent

Buy a streak freeze use it next day.

This is a terrible incentive—encouraging people not to practise!

A much better one is to start a new language, pass the first checkpoint and buy the bonus skills (will only work for languages with them, of course). You can also use the app to waste lingots on buying the owl clothes, or some such similar nonsense, depending on your version of it.

Hmmm... so lingots don't get deducted from your account is what you're saying?

They do. What he's saying is they don't pop up in the Lingots Given count. It's because of the glitch.

Oh, ok. I was confused because they get deducted from my balance.

You can also buy the hidden "progress quiz" in the lingot store with this whitelist workaround: https://www.google.de/search?q=site%3Aduolingo.com+lica+%22duo.old_web_url_whitelist%3D%5B%22%5E.%2B%22%5D%3B%22
