Duolingo just ate about 200 of my lingots!

As usual, I opened the duolingo app to learn some german to do my daily study and after I gained my reward, I realized that around 200 of my lingots were just gone and I had only 68 lingots. This really bothered me because I am a very old user and seeing all my rewards just get eaten up is very unfortunate, even though they would probably never get to use, I was somewhat happy to see the rewards I had collected.

Had this happened to anyone or does anyone know about this "lingot eating bug"? I'll really appreciate any help on this matter.

It just happened to me as well. I purchased a Streak Freeze and instead of taking the usual 10 lingots it took 200.

The exact same happened to me. I bought a streak freeze and I think that's what made me lose those lingots. It's very unfortunate.

Sorry - every donated lingot needs two "mouse clicks" and i don't enjoy this. :-)

The same problem for me - 200 lingots has been missed on July,12. What's wrong? And how to fix it? Can somebody help me? Or explain this situation, please

This is hopefully just a price adjustment, not a bug.

This happened to me at about the same time! I had 300+ lingots, and I had to buy streak freezes for a few days. I probably spent enough to be down to about 290 lingots or so, but suddenly I saw that my total was below 100.

This is pretty uncool. Lingots can be spent on functions that would otherwise cost real money to buy if you don't have lingots to spend.

I seem to have lost several thousands lingots... now I ”only” have 5781... but there is not much to do with the lingots anyway
