Question re: scorewatch

Hello, I have used scorewatch for quite a while on and off, I re subscribed about a month ago. I have my settings to alert when my score goes up by one point. I used my free score power report today because it will be a month ago tomorrow since my last update. I found on my report that my score had increased 5 points but I never got an alert. I did get the email that says nothing has changed on your report.... Can someone please look into and fix this glitch. Have never had this problem before.
Thanks!!!

Best thing I can say is,,, It's quirky.  I've had the same thing happen to me, then suddenly update.  No idea why.

Re: Question re: scorewatch

I think your score probably went up due to an increase in account ages, which happens once a month at the beginning of each new month.  Score updates only occur once every 7 to 10 days, however.  I will bet that you get the score alert this week.

 

btw, you are better off setting your target score to your current score exactly, not one point above.  Setting your target to your current score will give score alerts for score changes in either direction (when they are checked every 7 to 10 days).

Re: Question re: scorewatch

Score Watch doesn't work at all for me. It has been over a month since I have gotten an alert. Score went down, score went up, balances decreased, nothing, despite the proper settings.
