    Ok so I love this game soooooo much, but there is one problem for me. So the problem is I only get the gift/gifts that come from the day/days before.And how this all started is that one day I went on my device and I saw a message that said I had a full mail box but when I went on code spark I only got the gifts from the days before. Can you help me with that?

    I teach computer class to K-2nd graders. Every one of my students LOVES Codespark! It teaches sequencing, and sorting, and coding, and mathematical concepts, and... it’s pretty awesome! I do wish there was maybe a discount for families (maybe $3/ month, or $20 for the school year with a code from the teacher, etc) if their students use Codespark at home or something, it’s pricy at $10/month for home use. It’s a well built program, and worth paying for, I just don’t think it’s affordable enough to reach most of my students at home. But it makes my class really fun & educational. The only thing I could ask for from the Codespark crew is maybe solutions to things other than the “Puzzle” levels, some are really hard! But I love it, my kids love it, it’s GOOD stuff! GREAT job Codespark!

    I had a monthly membership but quit bc my daughter wasn’t using it enough. I received an email offering a lifetime membership for $70 as an earlybird sale. I tried all day to redeem, using various browsers, my phone, etc. and it wouldn’t process. The next day the price went up. I contacted customer service as they told me they do not offer lifetime memberships anymore. After I submitted proof of both offers, I did not receive a response. The emails continued. Since my daughter wanted it again,I tried to purchase at the higher price (still lifetime membership), but it still wouldn’t process. Clearly they want to hook you with a monthly membership. Talk about a scam, emailing offers that do not exist and then refusing to respond.
