Show Us The Monkey!

oodletorialHappy Friday! Welcome to the weekly Oodletorial. I wanted to discuss a little monkey business with you today. You know what I’m talking about – our generous, yet sometimes elusive, Token monkey friend. 

If you’ve not met him yet, you can read more hereMost days this little guy can be seen monkeying around the pages of GSN.com, but sometimes he takes a break. It’s hard work giving out all of those Tokens! 

Seriously though, we don’t set the times when he shows up. Our sponsors do and it’s always a surprise for us too. But if you don’t see him for a day or so, please don’t worry. Our happy friend will be back. And you know why? Because Tokens are like bananas – they have appeal. (get it?).

allgam

Remember, there are no limits to how often you can interact with the monkey in a day. If he shows up 10 times, you can click on him all 10 times. To be sure you collect your Tokens, keep these things in mind: 

1.   Interact with the ad via one click (whether that be starting the video or clicking another item in the ad)

2.  Stay on the ad for 30 seconds

Also, not every video or ad will have a “done” button. Some merely have an X at the top. If you see that X,  don’t click on it until you hover your cursor over the top of the ad and see the drop down that says you’ve earned your Tokens. Once you see that, you can click out. You may need to refresh the page to see the Tokens added to your balance.

 While our Monkey friend enjoys giving out Tokens, we wonder if anyone would like to see him give out Oodles someday too?  Leave us your feedback below. Have a safe and happy weekend!

  1. VERY NICE MONKEY “SHOW AND TELL”, BRENDY! :) IT WOULDN’T BE A BAD IDEA TO POST IT ON FACEBOOK WHERE SO MANY FOLKS ARE FRUSTRATED AND OR CONCERNED WHEN THEY DON’T SEE THE LITTLE GUY.
    I THINK YOUR IDEA FOR MONKEY PASSING OUT THE TOKENS WOULD BE GREAT; ESPECIALLY DURING THE HOLIDAYS, DRESSED UP AS SANTA CLAUSE! :) (JUST THE FIRST THING THAT POPPED INTO MY MIND.)
    MANY THANKS AND HAVE A GRAND WEEKEND!
    WARM REGARDS,
    PAM

      • Good Grief,
        I just realized I misread your suggestion!! I thought you were talking about Monkey passing out TOKENS! Instead you were talking about him passing out OODLES in addition to the tokens, I assume!? THAT WOULD CERTAINLY BE MOST WELCOMED!! :) Could you afford two Santa Clause Suits? lol
        ENJOY THE WEEKEND :)
        WARM REGARDS,
        PAM

  2. I just had another thought… IF we had an Oodle Monkey, would that mean we would have to give up other opportunities to earn Oodles ?
    If an Oodle Monkey is completely separate, and in addition to all other opportunities for earning Oodles, then YES, I am in Favor!

  3. Yes, an oodle animal would be terrific! But someyhing differnent from the monkey, the monkey can be tokens & an owl to give out oodles, so as not to confuse anyone!

  4. An oodles monkey is a great idea as long as it does not interfere with our Tokens monkey. I love that little guy and all the tokens. He is what makes it possible for a lot of us to play the casino games.

  5. Monkey “Tokens” are Marvelous!
    Monkey Oodle’s -are Oodllectable or should that be Oodlelicious.

    Maybe we can have a name the “GSNMonkey” ………..
    ….like Magic Monkey “Token” Monday

    Monkey “Oodle” Surprise Day

    Olivia Monkey “Oodle” Surprise Day

    Marvin Monkey “Token” Tuesday

    …………….never mind – Mix it up and let the little guy run ramped !

    Tokens -n- Oodles & Oodles -n-Tokens wherever he goes ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

  6. I love the token monkey ! I love Oodles ! But, I don’t know if I want to be watching ads all day trying to get tokens AND Oodles. The game based Oodletunities are so much fun. I’d like more of those and more, more, more Token Monkeys !!! :D

  7. I would love to see an Oodle Monkey!!! I would be on GSN 24/7 waiting to see him. I know I have gained a lot of tokens and would love some oodles added in there too!

  8. Can GSN use something that happens to be an upcoming holiday item to be able to get oodles, (example: Thanksgiving – turkey, Christmas – Santa or reindeer, or maybe a snowman, etc.)! I wouldn’t want this in place of the Token Monkey though!

    I used to use your site just about everyday but with work and single mom of 3 (sons late teenagers in age) I had no time left accept to sleep. Now 2 sons are living in the real world and my youngest, age 19, was killed by a drunk driver. I came back and started using the site and find myself on it everyday! There seems to be many more ways to obtain tokens and oodles. You added rewards points. Thank you for keeping my mind off my pain! The doctors say using the computer will help my mind stay busy instead of crying 24/7) so I intend to use it as often as possible! I had many tokens and oodles but maybe for not using GSN for a while I lost it all. That is okay, in the end, it is all fun and games!

    It is great allowing us users to give input, great ideas seem to come out that way. (New Game – Come Out, Come Out Where Ever You Are! :-D Just Joking)

    • Linda, I’m very sorry to hear about your son. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

      I’m not sure why you’d lose Oodles and Tokens, unless you possibly had a different user name? You can try contacting Player Services and see if they can assist you.

  9. I see you have adjusted the amount of tokens to play the 777 game. Same as all of the others now. Thanks. Also, if you want to see the monkey, play in the early AM hours, I played 3 to 5 am this morning, hit 10 times easy. I am awake anyway. Love most of your games, great fun!

    • Hello wylene,
      I agree with you about the time Monkey is most likely to appear to me as well; between 3 and up to 6AM (eastern time). If you wouldn’t mind, I would be curious to know “where” he appears to you? I always find him in the same two places; on the Home page and on the All Games page. Do you find him elsewhere? Thank you in advance.
      Sincerely,
      Pam
      p.s. I do see him occasionally in the afternoons, but not nearly as often.

  10. Why in the world would they allow a advertiser to be part of the monkey promotion knowing that it doesn’t have an up to date security certificate which doesn’t allow most people with security systems on their computers to access the advertisement or the free tokens. Beyond me!

    • Hi Mary, it means that particular activity/Token opportunity is finished. Keep clicking when you see him to see if a new one becomes available.

  11. Dear Brendy,
    It may “SUPPOSED” to mean that the activity is no longer available, but that is NOT always the case. Sometimes it’s simply a “GLITCH”. I’ve had it happen to me on several occasions and when I left, I still got my tokens. Also, when I went back to the the same site where the ad had been, it was back up and running again. So my advise is to be patient and not to worry about it. (although you may want to carry a banana in your pocket; just for luck, lol)
    All silliness aside; it seems to me that this monkey business is becoming a catalyst for way too much greed! It was my understanding that these were promotions, the equal to which are little gifts; not something by which one is supposed to earn a living and then get angry when they don’t get paid. If I have misunderstood, please don’t hesitate to fill me in on the fact of the matter.
    Sincerely,
    Pam.

  12. I haven’t bothered with the monkey since he only gives out tokens. I’d love more ways to get Oodles! Weren’t we supposed to get up to 450 Oodles for the Daily Break? You said it would be between 75 and 450, but that it would be closer to the 450 most of the time. Instead it’s been 75 most of the time. They took Oodletunities away & the Daily Break was supposed to make up for that but it hasn’t even come close! At this point it takes far to much time to earn enough Oodles to actually win any auctions that it’s really not worth it. Many are just trying to earn enough to win something so their time wasn’t a complete loss & then they’re going to leave. We need more Oodletunities to make it worth our time. Either that or a lot more auctions so they don’t go as high giving more people a chance to win without having to spend a year or more earning enough Oodles just to win 1 $25 gift card!

    • Hi TraceyLee,

      Appreciate the feedback. :) I understand that the Daily Break will be giving away a nice chunk of Oodles in the near future. I’ll pass along your thoughts to the folks in charge of Oodletunities.

  13. Right, I only see the monkey on the Home page & All games page. I skip back & forth and catch him frequently, but he sorta quits showing after 6 am except occasionally. It is always a thrill to catch him, tho. Probably is not a thrill to anyone else, but to a stay-at-home senior, we love it. We play lots of GSN games, and it helps out.

    • I used to be able to get the monkey several time in the morning after 7am. Now it is never there. Having it run up to 6am is really not fair to us who have to sleep at that time in order to go to work during the day.

      • Hi, the monkey shows up at all hours of the day, I saw him all afternoon. Try clearing your browser cache and see if you don’t have better luck!

  14. Personally, I have never seen the monkey. Right now it is 6:00am and I have been on for half an hour. Guess I’m looking in the wrong places.

    I am for oodles and tokens in what ever way I can get them.

  15. As of today I have seen the monkey 13 times and the not available sign 4 times, so that means 9 times I was able to get tokens. If it is over with then take down that advertisement. I appreciate the tokens but I feel like I am just wasting my time when I get nothing for clicking on it, are you still getting revenue for these glitches? This is just not happening today or just to me. Other people have commented on it before me, but what is being done. I do not see this as a means to earn a living or for greed. That would be impossible, what can you do with tokens but play casino games not cash them in, unless I am mistaken. Am I angry when this happens yes I am, why would I not be. As long as I am venting why is it the monkey does not appear as many times after 6am? I have seen comments about the timing of this. I thought the answer, if there is one, was it is the advertisers not the game site responsible for this. My thought on it is this is your site and if you think you have a better volume before 6am recheck your statistics. My rant is done on this subject.

    • Hi ceilr, I passed your post on to Player services and was told the message is usually red text on a popup. and it usually happens when someone is logged in to two different browsers on the same account. The Token Monkey will only have one activity available at one time for the same user, so it errors out on the other screen.

      If you do not have more than one browser open, and it still happens, please take a screenshot and pass it on to Player Services. Let them know you only have one browser window open. To contact them, log on to your user name on GSN.com and click on GSN Help at the top of the page. Be sure you’re logged in to your user name so you can see the contact Player services link.

      In regards to your other thought, we truly do not control the ads or when the monkey appears. That is our sponsors spot to do with as they please, and they decide when an ad runs. He does appear at different times throughout the day though. I generally see him mid-morning, and in the afternoons. For instance, I’m looking at him right now as I type this. If you’re playing a lot at 6am though, it is possible you may reach the maximum number of times the ad is available to you for that time period.

  16. WOW! I said I love to see the monkey, and see him I did this morning, about 25 times. However, I like to get the tokens. This morning, I got the message about the site being unavailable about 14 times. Appreciated the times it was accepted.

  17. I enjoy catching GSN’s Elusive Monkey and am very grateful to cash in on all the free tokens. And I have cashed in a ton of them, so, thanks GSN.

    Sorry Angel Hon and GSN, there’s a “BUT”. It’s getting pretty frustrating to get excited about finally catching the elusive little buggers, only to lose the chance at winning Tokens, because of the videos being no longer unavailable. Lately at least half the times he’s shown up, so does the video unavailable message, what a bummer.

    Thanks for letting me vent, will keep looking for him with my fingers crossed that GSN get some new video or activities where we can win actually win Tokens.

    Please GSN get some new videos ads or replay the other ones more.

    BTW. I was at the Florida Aquarium when the filmed the Doritos commercial. I was trying to be an extra, but, no luck on that.

    Thanks for letting me rant Angel Sweetie and Take Good Care Hon :) <3

      I’m glad you are enjoying catching him! Hope this advice helps.

      • Hi Angel Sweetie

        Thanks for responding to my post so quickly. Yes, the text message is in red. I only use one Browser, IE, at a time and only have one browser window with GSN opened at a time. However, usually have several browser windows opened to different sited at the same time as GSN, I’m a multi-website tasker.

        I’ll send Player Services a screenshot next time it happens, explain in detail what browser I’m using and how many windows I had open at the same time as GSN. As I explained here to you.

        Thanks Again Sweetie MWAH.

          • One might try refresh page after seeing the “No longer avail”. Seems when it has happened have tried that. Also when have seen Monkey checked the other spot where Monkey can be found, because….where there’s one there could be another…..although think they may only allow to collect one or the other, ie collect from “Homepage Monkey” and then directly try again to collect on the “All Games page Monkey”, refresh…….n try, try again. Frustrating, a little, but FREE, what, oh wait, nothing’s free…. Happy Gaming and Thanks for even the chance to earn extra anything

  18. I have watched several of the commercials from the sponsors today, however I didn’t get the tokens. Has anyone else had this problem today?

    • I have to say I really enjoy the Money (token) Monkey and the advertisements. I too am having issues getting credited. I don’t see him as much as some, so when I do, I enjoy the videos and earning the extra tokens.

      Today I have not been credited for 4,000 to 6,000 tokens. Usually they are immediately credited to my account. I wanted to share one of them on a social account but lost the connection, that one I watched twice. Yesterday, I saw the Money Monkey quite a bit and had no issues with the tokens being credited.

      I put in a Help Request with Player Services to see if they could tell me what was going on.

  19. Yes i have several times today. Before you say it i’m doing nothing wrong. I have been catching the monkey since before you posted it on this page so I know i’m doing everthing right. Please fix this. I already wrote to player services.
    Thanks for your help.

  20. Today was the firs time, that I have’nt gotton my tokens. The last tokens I got were at about 11:00 am this morning. Ive seen the monkey about 10 times since then, but have’nt seen any credited. GSNAngel said to refresh the page, I did that but still didn’t get them. I contacted player services and told them, but haven’t received an e-mail yet. I’ve received a lot of tokens finding that little monkey, I sure hope it starts working again soon. Hope yours starts working too!

    • This morning/afternoon depending where you live, the token credit for watching the videos were not being made. I refreshed my page, logged in/out, cleared my cookies and cache etc. to no avail. Sent a notification to Player Services also, first time I haven’t received tokens either for interacting with the Monkey.

      Late this afternoon early evening a new set of videos started and I got credit for those. It seemed there was an issue this morning for some reason. It is really nice to get the extra tokens, I enjoy the activities and videos, I am a little afraid to post on social networks in fear I will mess up the credit process. The Monkey Tokens have been fun minus the few issues lately.

      Any extra tokens or oodles in my opinion are always appreciated. Thanks GSN!

      • Hi Sldnels,

        Thanks for the feedback. We did put in a fix yesterday which addressed some of the issues with the sweet little token-giving-monkey. It should be working as designed now. :)

        GSNScoop

        • I wanted to say Thanks to you GSN Scoop, and Player Services (GSN Help)? for trying to get problems that arise fixed as quick as possible. Also for keeping tabs on issues and listening to players feedback.

          It appeared quite a few of us were having issues with the little Monkey who I enjoy hanging out with when I can find him/her. It was nice to hear back and know behind the scenes the team is always working no matter how big or small the problem. Thanks again!

  21. Nov.13/10:15 EST

    Is anyone having problems getting the Game Show Games to load. I’ve tried Catch 21 and Wheel of Fortune and all I get is a blank screen with a double line down the center

  22. I have been playing on the gsn.com site for several months and I have never seen the “monkey” and I have no clue where to find the ads to watch. I must be looking in the wrong place to find the instructions because I don’t see where it is mentioned. Thanks and I really enjoy playing on this site!

    • Hi Trinitee3,

      The monkey is a bit elusive, but you’ll see him on the homepage in the “Ways to Win Today” box, towards the top. He won’t always be there, but you should see him from time to time. :) Good luck!

      GSNScoop

  23. Thank you, I was reading some of the earlier comments and discovered my ad blocker was still on. As soon as I turned it off I saw the monkey twice. Thanks again!

  24. Show us the MONKEY is great! Happy earning 1000 tokens every time I see the little guy.

    Would LOVE IT even more if it were OODLES as well!!!

    What about having a POODLE for the oodles??? That way there’d be no confusion on what your getting rewarded for. Just a thought ;)

      • There is one video that won’t load for me, ever when i click on the monkey. all others do. i don’t know what product it is for because i just get click on video to start and then just a big blank white page. it’s happened at least 3 times already today. and has been happening all week. do you know anything about this? i like the monkey

        • Hi Micki,

          Please contact our Player Services department and give them as much detail as possible on this. We’re working with folks who put this promotion together to iron out the issues.

          GSNScoop

    • An Oodle Poodle! That’s brilliant! I would love to see an Oodle Poodle! Love it! Love it! Love it! What a great idea! Come on GSN! You gotta do the Oodle Poodle! And don’t forget to reward AYoung1007 for coming up with the perfect name!

      • Thank you TraceyLee!

        How do we go about getting this “Oodle Poodle” to appear? Wouldn’t that be awesome if every now & then we saw a Poodle… I know I’d giggle & be stoked on top of it to win oodles… from a poodle! Hee Hee

    • Hi MoeMoe9,

      Make sure you’re looking at the top of the “Ways to Win” box on the homepage. You should see the monkey there, when he’s available. He’s not always there, but he should be at some point during the day. :)

      GSNScoop

  25. Hi…I was looking at the list of coupons that can be bought with Oodles in the Buy it Now section, and I was wondering if it would be possible to eventually add some coupons for Canadian stores here (e.g. Sobeys, Atlantic Superstore, Future Shop, Canadian Tire, Wal-Mart, Target), please?

  26. I think there are plenty of ways to win oodles compared to the ways to win tokens I feel playing slots isnt winning tokens it play gambling and whatis gambling? A gamble.

  27. Angel, When are they going to give us a message board comparable to our old one? This new and improved is making it more difficult for me to navigate and contact the ones I need to contact. It is even more difficult contacting gsnhelp. Okay, can you find out for me why when I try to play Cubis I get the Fizgig game to play for fun? Is anyone else having the same problem?

    • Hi Flora, I’m sorry I keep telling you we have no news yet, but we don’t have any news yet on when we can expect a message board. Believe me, I’m waiting as anxiously as everyone else!

      I let Player Services know you’re directed to Fizgig when you click on Cubis. They have submitted a ticket to get that fixed. In the meantime, when you go to all games, and see cubis, click on the Oodles symbol instead of the word cubis, and it will take you to the correct game!

      I’m not sure why it’s more difficult to contact Player Services. The steps are the same as before – log on to your GSN user name at http://www.gsn.com, and click GSN Help at the top of the page. You need to log on to your user name to see the contact Player Services link. The process is a little easier, as they’ve added an “other” category in the drop down window. Anything you feel doesn’t match a certain topic, just click other. Player services will know who to direct your comment or inquiry to. :)

      • I had the same issues with the Cubis game, and I first started reporting this issue to player services back on November 7th. I reported it again on the 10th, 11th, & 14th.
        Interestingly enough, I was told “we have verified the game and there are no issues or abnormalities”.
        With every solution offered, it was indicated that the problems were all to do with either my computer, my system requirements, my web browser, my cookies, etc…
        At no point was it ever suggested to try what GSNAngel has suggested to flora! So THANK YOU flora for speaking up publicly about this issue and thank you Angel for suggesting a way around this problem until such a time as the problem is fixed at that end! :)

    • I let Player Services know you’re directed to Fizgig when you click on Cubis. They have submitted a ticket to get that fixed. In the meantime, when you go to all games, and see cubis, click on the Oodles symbol instead of the word cubis, and it will take you to the correct game!

      • Wow! I just tried the Oodles icon instead of the Cubis words or the Cubis picture. Nothing gets me into the Cubis game at the moment. The game that appears is the “Play for Fun” game “FizGig”! No thanks… not interested.
        The problem does seem to be intermittent, but it also seems to be a site issue, possibly with the way the link has been set up.
        I have already notified Player Services again. :)

        • Did you go to All Games, and where Cubis is under Strategy Ganes, clicked on the Oodle under the green and red puzzle pieces? Right next to the cash game symbol?

          • :) Yes, that is exactly where I tried, since nothing else worked. At the time, nothing allowed me to access the Cubis game, because every link took me to the “Play for Fun” game FizGig, which I am not the least bit interested in playing. No offense, but I enjoy Cubis. :)

        • FYI… Here we are, December 4th, and still the issues with Cubis are not fixed. This has been an on-going issue since at least the beginning of November. It doesn’t seem to make any difference which browser is being used. If I use Chrome, I’m told to use IE. If I’m already using IE, I’m told to try Firefox, etc….
          I still believe this issue has something to do with the way the links have been programmed on GSN’s end… not my computer, or the browser, or my settings. I’ve tried all the suggestions from Player Services for a month now, but this problem, although intermittent, is still happening. And yes, I’ve informed Player Services again.
          I know technology has its trials, but just thought I’d let you know, this problem is still continuing to be an issue.

  28. this is the most pricey site i have ever played on and the tokens we win for playing is terrible if the games dont loosen up soon and start paying back more i am going to have to find a new site to play on i love the games but its costing way to much money to play here tks for listening

  29. Tuesday morning. Don’t see the monkey very often this morning, but when I do, the advertisement screen that comes up always says ” This activity is no longer available”, and gives no tokens. When I go back to page where I saw the monkey, he is no longer there. Frustrating! Why would this even be coming up if it is no longer available?

    • Hi Gene, Player Services told us the message is red text on a popup and it usually happens when someone is logged in to two different browsers on the same account. The Token Monkey will only have one activity available at one time for the same user, so it errors out on the other screen.

      If you do not have more than one browser open, and it still happens, please take a screenshot and pass it on to Player Services. Let them know you only have one browser window open. To contact them, log on to your user name on GSN.com and click on GSN Help at the top of the page. Be sure you’re logged in to your user name so you can see the contact Player services link.

    • Is anyone else having this problem? what’s happening to me: receintly a video won’t load when i click the monkey. Just a white window with nothing in it instructing me to click on the video which never appears.
      i’m guessing it might be the after efx of watching a small business video. After I view it that first time, it somehow becomes locked. i don’t see it again all day but do get a white window with nothing to click on almost eveytime i’ve clicked on the cute li’l monkey.
      When i’ve watched or interacted with the other sponsors’ ads: their same ad or video comes up repeatedly.
      This problem has frustrated me to the point of contacting help and player services. and into trying to solve it at least to my theory as to what is causing this. and i could be totally wrong but it somehow gives me confort telling myself what it is. :)
      so again, has anyone else had this problem?

  30. This morning, the elusive monkey was very evident. Thanks! However, twice it came up, I clicked, watched the kitty litter ad and another ad, it finished, said Sorry, try again later ( such as that). Did not get the 2000 tokens. If you see where they were given, please advise. I have seen close to this before, but did not watch the ads,so was not surprised to not get the tokens. I think if you watch the ads, you should get the tokens. Am I wrong??

    • I see you got 1,000 Tokens (Sponsored Video Token Bonus 9am ET). I don’t think you can get another 1,000 watching the same ad without closing it out and clicking on the Monkey again.

  31. GSN is very different when you play on an Ipad obviously. Most of the things, like playing a game and not getting credit for the game against the amount needed to complete a promotion, I accept (may not like, but so be it). However, I like the Ipad and play most of the games on it. What I do not understand, I seem to lose lots of tokens when I log off after playing, today, I lost 2000, yesterday, somewhere around 8000. Is this standard procedure?

    • You shouldn’t lose Tokens when logging off. I would contact Player Services and see if they can investigate for you. You can do so by clicking on GSN Help on the main http://www.gsn.com page. Be sure you’re logged in to your user name so you can see the contact Player Services link.

  32. when i watch the monkeys ad on the GSN home page I receive the tokens, but when the monkey is on the all games page I am not getting credited the 1000 tokens?????? Would there be an reason for this. I like monkey he gives free $$$ who couldn’t use that!

    • I’ve not heard of that issue before! If it happens again, please try and take a screenshot and send to Player Services. Also let them know which browser you’re using. You can do so by clicking on GSN Help on the main http://www.gsn.com page. Be sure you’re logged in to your user name so you can see the contact Player Services link.

  33. Got the monkey twice today,,different times… watch ads,then it said click on video…but never saw were video was…tried clicking all over nothing happens…and of couse did not receive points…whats up !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • f it happens again, please try and take a screenshot and send to Player Services. Also let them know which browser you’re using. You can do so by clicking on GSN Help on the main http://www.gsn.com page. Be sure you’re logged in to your user name so you can see the contact Player Services link.

  34. Oodles ! of course we would love for the monkey to give free oodles also ! What a great idea ! Thank you for wanting to give us free tokens and oodles !
    I love the monkey ! :)

  35. I have not seen the monkey at all in a couple of days ! I don’t have any ad blocker or pop up blocker – is there anything I can do to make him re-appear I really, really miss him. (and I could use the tokens, lol)

  36. I have not seen the monkey in a couple of days also. I am on here a couple of times a day, depending on the day. I don’t have a pop-up blocker on either.

    • f it happens again, please try and take a screenshot and send to Player Services. Also let them know which browser you’re using. You can do so by clicking on GSN Help on the main http://www.gsn.com page. Be sure you’re logged in to your user name so you can see the contact Player Services link.

  37. I have seen the monkey every day from the beginning, but he did not show for me yesterday or today. I love the Lil guy and miss him already!

  38. I haven’t gotten a monkey for several days and I know others that get it multiple times a day. What’s up? Are you mad at me or what?

    • Hi Vicki, the monkey shows up at random times, we don’t have control over it (and we’re definitely not mad at you!). Make sure you don’t have a pop-up or ad blocker gong. You could try a different browser too. I’m using Chrome and I’m seeing him on the main gsn.com page as I type this!

  39. Why don’t I get “the monkey” any more? I haven’t seen him for eons and my friends gets him multiple times a day. I WANT THE MONKEY!!!!!

  40. I saw the token monkey for the first time a few days ago and i was tickled that he showed up, but on Tuesday when he showed up i was trying to turn my volume up so i could hear the video and lo and behold the video disappeared; now every time i click on the monkey no video comes up..it says click video but i get a blank screen. Why is this happening?

  41. i cant get to play dimond slots game when i click on the game it going back to all games is anyone having this problem with this game

  42. I have not seen the monkey in a week. BUT – I started getting the earn tokens on the spin wheel again.. I have tried to get the tokens, watched the videos, (several times) But no credit is given. Is there a problem? Am I doing something wrong? When the monkey started to appear, the space on the spin wheel was just blank- never said “earn 1000 bonus tokens” (click here). Now this is showing up again, (am I going backwards?) any suggestions will help, and THANKS

  43. I used to see the monkey every day or every other day. The last time I saw him was 11/19. I saw him twice that day but each time I tried to view the video, it said the offer was no longer available. I have not seen him since. I have no new changes to my server and no pop up blockers on. Has the monkey left us for good?

  44. I got the monkey, and my 1000 tokens credited several times a day until Nov. 22. From Nov. 22 thru the present date, I have been getting credits only about 50% of the times that I clicked on the monkey. What happened? I was enjoying the ads and the tokens.

    • Please contact Player Services. Let them know which browser and operating system are you using (http://whatsmyos.com/ can tell you your operating system if you’re not sure).

  45. Token counts off from what it shows when I’ve cashed out of a game and what “toolbar” says I have. Refreshing screen or opening a new tab does not help. Lossing some mega amounts of tokens at times. Very hit and miss with monkey and most times no credit for the Doritos adds.

  46. Where’s the monkey????? All of a sudden, the very few times I see the monkey, it says “click for video”, then it says video no longer available. It’s not our operating systems, it’s GSN!!!! Please don’t take away the benefits you’ve already given your customers.

  47. So far as I can see, I did not get the 75 oodles this morning for Lucky Break. I went through all of it, and it said I made the 75, but never saw it. I looked under my receivables & do not see it. Thanks for listening.

  48. hi, the earn 1000 tokens on the monkey worked for me once about six daysago but i never recieve any tokens. since then i have to click for video about 12 times in the last five days, all it does is freeze. Do i have to download something for it to work

  49. Hi again,

    There’s this GSN toaster I found on eBay which prints the GSN logo on toast (it’s mostly white, and has the saying “get toasted” on it)…just wondering, but was this item once available in the prize center a few years ago, and if so, could it possibly be brought back someday (preferably as a Buy It Now item), please?

  50. It may only be coincidence, but the token monkey went missing after an Internet Explorer update on my system.Did not see him for days. I finally tried switching to Google Chrome and he is back more than ever before ! I don’t know if it will make a difference for everyone, but it seems to have worked for me, so thought I’d pass the info along. Oh and thanks for the Hannukah gift tokens GSN – what a nice surprise!

  51. Hey techies Why not make earnie the monkey become the token turkey for thanksgiving! And have a very Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

  52. I had not seen the monkey for a week using explorer browser but when I tried using chrome it is there. Why is it not working with explorer

  53. I LOVE the Monkey and have logged a bunch of token from him – but it’s time to look a GIFT MONKEY in the mouth. Some of the promos are very dependable and always give you what they promise such as Best Buy, Publix, Almost Human, etc. However there are some that leave a very bad taste in your mouth for the sponsor. I have accessed the promos for Corning’s “Brokeface” and the Chocolate Lays many, many times and they ALWAYS disappoint. They have NEVER come through with the promised tokens! Originally, the Doritos Bold spots were dependable, but for the past few days they have not delivered the promised tokens either. The Corning video is only 16 sec. long and I’ve tried running it 2 or 3 times to reach the required 30 seconds but still no tokens. if they are truly controlled by the sponsors, they should know that this is not the image they want to project. Promising something and not delivering is much worse than no ad at all.

    • grannybiv, I’ve passed your post on. I’ve had recent ads be only 15 seconds long, but for me the “done” button still appeared, and when I clicked it I got Tokens.

    • I think the Monkey has run its course as of today. However if you do see him, I’ve always found that refreshing the page when the video is done will bring you the tokens. works everytime if you have probs with the video.

  54. I miss the monkeys,where are they. I always saw them before,but not no more.
    please bring them back. they were so much fun to see. need more fun things on the games to watch and earn, makes everything more fun to play.

  55. Saw our Monkey friend for the first time, yesterday, since late November. I also caught him a few times today. I sure did miss you little friend. Thanx for popping in , you helped me score my first million tokens~ it was a personal goal to reach by years end, I’ve only been playing since late summer. Thank you , Angel for all the fun games ! :)

  56. HI, Tonight I got some monkeys, but when I click on the monkey instead of an ad it says this connection is not trusted.It is from http://www.gwallet.com This is the first time that it has done this. I have firefox. I looked that site up on google,and it did say it wasn’t a trusted site. Wondered if you have had any feedback on this. MERRY CHRISTMAS

  57. Is anyone having trouble with the “monkey” ? When I click on the “monkey”, instead of seeing a video, I get the following error message: Content was blocked because it was not signed by a valid security certificate. I have contacted GSN Support, but I was curious if it was something wrong with my computer.

  58. Hi, What’s wrong with the monkey’s tonight? when you click on the monkey, The ad is either blank or it plays part of the way. Then the done comes up.
    Hi What ‘s up with the ads tonight? When you click on the monkey, the ad is either blank or it starts up, when the done pops up and you click on it it goes blank again, with the word completing. Plenty of monkeys, but you can’t get any tokens. Not a god night to stay up and play games. HAPPY NEW YEAR

  59. I’m back The ads started playing again. They were messed up for about 45 minutes, then started to play. Now I can stay up and play more games, and keep checking for the monkeys. Have a nice day

  60. I’ve had issues with the Monkey as well, but mine started ever since I did the Windows 8.1 updates. The screen says it’s loading, and the words “Click Video to Start” appear, but the only thing displayed is a black box. After 2 or 3 seconds a white box pops up in the middle with a sad face icon. This has been happening for at least 2 weeks now.
    I generally use Chrome, but this even happens when I try IE. I’ve checked all my settings and cleared my cache. I already reported this to Player Services, but the only advice I got was to use Firefox. If Firefox is going to be the only browser that works for everything on this site, then maybe there should be a disclaimer of sorts to let people know.
    I’m quite certain not everyone uses Firefox on here. I’ve seen many other comments where people have said they’re also using Chrome or IE.

    This particular issue seems to be more related to the Windows updates more than which browser I’m using. I used to see the Monkey and had no problem viewing the videos before doing the updates. I thought if the updates were not compatible with the site, that maybe Player Services might want to know so they could address the issue accordingly.
    Personally, I don’t feel like having 3 browsers open or available just so I can access this or that while I’m trying to play… LOL!! Seems rather silly to me! :)
    I may not be a computer geek or expert, but there must be an easier way around these issues.
    Maybe 2014 will be a better year!?! :)
    Here’s to fewer site issues, seeing more Monkeys, getting more Tokens, and earning more Oodles for 2014!! Happy New Year everyone!!

  61. the monkeys must be tired tonight. At 2:00 a.m. when I clicked on the monkeys, nothing happened. The ad didn’t come up, and the monkey just stayed on the page. At 2:45 it started to work again. I had written a note to the help center and told them it wasn’t working, then wrote another one that it was ok. Now it’s 5:00a.m., and the monkey just sits there again when I click on it. Well I’m tired too, I’ll try again later.

    • Hi, please contact Player Services for account assistance. They can investigate this for you. To contact them click on GSN Help at the top of the main http://www.gsn.com page. Be sure you’re logged on to your user name so you can see the contact link.

      • I have had problems with the monkey for days. I have three unanswered tickets to the help center. I wish they would get the problems fixed or just put the monkey in his cage for a while and let him rest.
