Has anyone else seen their Steps thresholds fluctuate from day to day like this?

There's no mention of any Steps algorithm changes on the Carrot blog or the app. There was a new version of the app (Android) a couple of days ago with the usual, vague "Bug fixes " that reveals nothing. Is this really a bug fix (or they mean "fix" in the sense of affixing a new bug to the app)?

Why has this thread been renamed to [Petro Canada] Bonus 800+200 Petro-points and FREE Petro-points every day! (from Carrot Rewards App for free SCENE/Aeroplan/Petro-Points/More Rewards [BC/ON/NFLD only]?)

This is highly misleading. The Carrot program applies to more than just PetroCan, i.e. to Aeroplan, Drop and Scene points programs as well. There are many posts in this thread that have nothing to do with PetroCan and everything to do with the Carrot incentive program in general.
A bad merge.. and I haven't see my goal change daily.

Weird...

I reported this, so hopefully someone will take care of renaming it back to its correct title.

Latest version on Android now forces you to get all of the quiz questions correct before it grants you SCENE points lol

Just the latest quiz. All quizzes before do not require all correct answers.

It makes me wonder if, moving forward, they're gonna stick with this... it was kind of annoying doing the quiz again just to make sure I got the points. Oh well. I learned something new today.

That's pure speculation at this, um, point. But it would make sense if they did adopt that requirement going forward.

Isn't that the whole, um, point of making you redo the survey until you it's correct? ;)

Otherwise you could just randomly answer all the questions without even bothering to read them and still get full points credit. That seems like a, um, pointless exercise if the objective is to teach people about health, fitness, etc.

scene or petro?
Petro. 1000 from signup and 300 from 2 quick quizes. Can we connect our petro points number to another account and get the points again?

I think best value currently is Drop points
Gives a lot of points and can be redeemed for Amazon, Tim Hortons, Starbucks, etc
You earn 20% more points for daily steps (and probably quizzes) than Scene

Tried signing up with this link [removed] on computer initially, but it only worked on phone

But they require your CC information. It's hard to trust our personal information to companies now. So many small and big companies got hacked or leaked customer information

Even worse, giving that CC information violates the terms and conditions that the CC issuer requires in order to indemnify the customer in the event their CC is used fraudulently. Using Drop you effectively waive your right to restitution in the event your CC is used fraudulently--even if the security breach didn't involve Drop.
