January Kindle Challenge

Anyone else participating?
https://www.amazon.com/kindlechallenge

It's cute. I have read some said they did not get a $5.00 free ebook credit, some get others options. Mine is showing as the $5.00 credit. The badges are fun when activated/lit up. It's a side thing if you're planning on reading anyway. I don't recall Amazon doing something like this before, although it's possible they have and I missed it.

From the page:
How it works
1) Find your Kindle Challenge quests below
2) Earn badges for completing quests
3) Get $5 in eBook credit for earning at least four diamond badges
The Kindle Challenge ends on January 31, 2021
Badges may take up to 72 hours after completion to appear, terms and conditions apply

Hm, odd

It seems that some get more challenges that others offered and some different challenges than others catered by their device or options.
An annoying badge I saw them griping about on reddit that only affects those who get the option of 12 instead of 11, and the same for me is:

Easy on the Eyes
Earn this badge when you register a Kindle E‑reader device.

Obviously I doubt many will de-register and then re-register their devices, or buy a new device in the month of January just for this badge, which does not count toward earning the credit anyway since it's not a diamond badge .

I believe I saw that it doesn't with everyone. It is odd. Even if not a reward, I'm into weird little badges and achievements since I'm dorky that way. I messed it up by not reading yesterday where it counted before it hit midnight -- I was listened to Audible for hours though so I'm guessing that didn't sync in. It still hasn't caught up with 2 badges from Friday, so I don't think I'll get four of the diamonds for the 5.00 credit regardless.

I got a Kindle Unlimited and Prime book badge, but I don't own and use Prime on this account, so I'm still trying to figure that one out lol

Amazon has always been about separating the sheep from the goats. I’m not inclined to provide Amazon with my reading data for free when they’re paying other people for it!

I first read about this scheme from Goodereader (dodgy I know) via a notification on my phone a week ago. I don't know where you are, but that article said the monetary rewards were US only

So far I have 10 of 14 showing on my system.

Kindle Unlimited Reader
Series Starter

Finisher

I anticipate getting Silver for certain and Quitters Day almost assuredly and possibly Gold in which case I'll also get Overachiever. That's if no more new ones appear in the interim. There were 12 when I originally joined, now 14. I haven't really done much different than usual except take a trial of KU.

On Reddit some said they were also only offered bragging rights, so this does not surprise me. I'm not sure how they figure who gets what. Some have to do more to reach the goal so I'm assuming it goes off existing reading habits to a degree.
