Suggestion: "Weekend Pass" in the lingot store

I suggest that you all add a streak freeze for a two day weekend "pass". Sometimes it is hard to remember to reinstate the one day streak freeze if you are the beach. I'd be willing to pay 20 lingots for that! My wife says she has that in the Italian course, why not for Spanish too?

I think this is a great idea. I would even be willing to cough up a premium: 30 lingots for a "weekend pass" and 100 lingots for a seven day "backpacking vacation / no cell service" freeze.

I like it; I also would love other ways to make use of lingots :D

Agreed. They seem somewhat useless at the moment. Other than to swap them back and forth for whatever reason. I've got a bunch. Here, have one lol.

It's not the course; it's the version. It's available on the Android app, but not on the Web site. I do not know if it is available on the iOS app. (Nor do I know if it is or isn't the subject of an A/B test thereby making it available only to certain users on certain platforms.)

This is how Duolingo works.

As pointed out in the previous post, this item in the store seems to be causing some issues, i.e. it's not actually saving people's streaks. Buyer beware until DL has this figured out.

So this is an A/B test atm? Just to confirm with what 2 other people have said?

Unfortunately, 'm not privy to whether or not this is a testing thing, but I've seen 3 people complain in the last week that they "purchased the streak freeze only to have it fail them. Hopefully if it's a bug, they'll fix it soon.

Would also like the weekend pass to keep in my store until i need it. i bought one once hoping it would keep like regular freeze, but nope, it disappeared.
