    I also just sent one. For a moment, every time I brought up CC, it appeared. I did shut off my phone then bring it up, and right now it's not butting in.

    I got it about an hour ago after five minutes on the site. Not Amazon this time. Back to laptop.

    Wow, so glad to know it's your site and not my ipad. I tried wiping cache and history, twice, and resetting iPad afterwards once. Next step woul've been to wipe the ipad, but then I realized it's only happening on this site. Happens once a day or whenever I wipe my history. Happened last night.

    Just got a pop up for amazon gift card. Snap shot it and sent it in.

    Happened immediately after getting the "oops someone went wrong page. "

    I repeatedly got the popup for an Amazon gift card on CC yesterday afternoon (6/25). I was on my iPad at JFK, if it matters. Total bummer for me because I had a long layover and wanted to do some CC catching up.

    ^ Why did the popup stop you? I just close the tab and continue (iOS).
