Hey, I cannot search for any rewards. I copy and paste the URL or ASIN into the search for box but nothing comes up. Help?

Sorry to bump and old thread but it seemded better than creating a new, almost identical thread.

Searching rewards gallery is almost always "No Results". I tried using URL, tweaking my searches, searching by ASIN, searching by produt name, refining search locations...... nothing seems to be working.

What I can find on Amazon.co.uk in less than a minute is often taking 15 minutes to find on rewards gallery, if i am able to find it at all.

Also, the search sub-categories I'm assuming are taken from amazon.com? They are very different to Amazon.co.uk sub-categories. Could this (or any changes to the amazon API) be the problem?

Anyway, was really wondering if this is a known bug, or if it is on the to-do list of things to look into/fix?

Thanks

I see both of you are UK. Could this be an UK specific issue?

There are some issues with searching for rewards once in a while which is an API limitation (maximum number of searched allowed in a specific timeframe) that we cannot really fix, but this is only temporarily and should fix itself after a bit. It sounds like you guys have different issues though?

Also, is this still an issue or has it been resolved over time?

Thanks for answering Mat, it does seem like it's a UK issue. Had quite a few UK members asking in shoutbox for help finding things as the rewards galery has shown no results for them.

It still appears to be an issue, at least from what I can see when I use it. It's not always present though. Sometimes the gallery works perfectly, and other times, it just.... doesn't.

If I browse a category, it yields general results and seems fine. It's searching where the problems occur.

If it sometimes works and then breaks then it could very well be the API limitation, this affects both UK and US members...
