Q: What is Viggle?

A: Viggle is an app available for iOS and Android which offers you gift cards, coupons, and electronics for simply watching TV and clicking ads in-app! Basically, Viggle can “check-in” to shows by using the microphone on your device to hear what show you’re watching. Each check-in gets you a certain amount of points that you can redeem for gift certificates to Best Buy, Starbucks, Sephora, Burger King, iTunes, etc.!

Q: How do I download it?

A: Go thru this link if you have an Apple device or download it for Android here… http://android.viggle.com/ or just scan the QR with your Android bar code scanner. http://chart.googleapis.com/chart…o.gl/GhiqE

Q: But not all rewards programs are created equal… How long does it take to get a gift card?

A: Not too long. If you’re a beginner user, it may only take a few days to get a $5 gift card, but when you start to learn more about the process, it’ll take less time.

Q: I saw those HUGE tables above. What are those about?

A: You’re looking at our primetime schedules. Viggle gives bonus points to the shows listed above each day. If you miss a show, you can check in the next day or the day after that, up to a week… that’s what the links are for! So basically, click one of the links to start a video, open up the app and click “Check-in”… Viggle listens and you get gift cards! It’s that easy!

Q: That seems like a lot of work. Any other ways to get points?

A: First of all, it is not a lot of work, but there are several other ways! The other major way to get points, other than check-ins is ads. you simply click an ad in-app and get credited for it! It’s totally worth it… checking in to a bonus show above yields between 8 and up to 25 cents in gift cards and simply watching an 30 second ad can get you up to 6 cents in gift cards!

CHECKING IN TO TV SHOWS

Q: When can I check-in to a show?

A: You can check into a show at any time during the program, EXCEPT within the last 5 minutes of its airing. You do not have to check in when the show first starts.

Q: How do I receive points for checking in to a show?

A: Once you are checked into a show, you will receive points for the time you watched the show. Viggle assumes you watch until the end.

Q: How long will I receive points for watching?

A: You will continue earning points until: a) the show ends or b) you check in to another show.

Q: After I check in to a show, do I have to leave the app open?

A: No.

Q: After I check in to a show, do I have to watch the whole show to receive credit?

A: No, you actually only need to watch enough to get checked in (unless it is a show with bonus points). You will get credit from the time you check-in until the show goes off or you check-in to a different show, even if you do not continue watching the show.

Q: What are “Featured Shows”?

A: The shows on the “Featured Shows carousel” are shows worth bonus points. In order to earn these, you MUST remain checked in to that show for at least 10 minutes. You may only earn these bonus points for one check in, regardless of whether you watch the show live or recorded. If you check out of the show after 10+ minutes, you won’t get a pop-up notification telling you that you’ve earned the points, but your point balance will increase with bonus (you may need to refresh your point total).

Q: What is manual check-in?

A: Manual check-in is another form of checking in instead of letting Viggle listen to your phone. Simply attempt to check-in, but you don’t have to do anything… just let the app listen to silence. After the app notifies you that your check-in fails, do it again… but this time, you can manually enter the show you want to check-in to. This is useful when Viggle doesn’t recognize your show, some other event (like pro basketball or golf) goes into Overtime and takes up a part of the show, or you don’t have the channel the show is on. Note: this can only be used when your show is CURRENTLY on air. So if you want to check into a show that aired the day before, you can’t use manual check-in, unless there’s a re-air.

Q: Can manual check-ins get you flagged?

A: Probably not, but when you can do a regular check-in, do it.

Q: What about DVRed shows
?
A: Viggle can recognize recorded content, but may not always be able to do so. Shows that are not live CANNOT be manually checked into. DVRed shows also qualify for “Featured Show” bonus points (but remember, you are only eligible for “Featured Show” bonuses once, regardless of how many times you check in).

Q: What about shows on channels I don’t subscribe to?

A: You can still check into these shows manually.

Q: Viggle doesn’t seem to be listening to my TV!

A: In order for Viggle to listen to your TV (and check you in to the show), you need a microphone. If using an early generation iPod, you HAVE to have an EXTERNAL MICROPHONE in order for Viggle to HEAR your TV! Newer generation iPods have built in mics.
