I didn't draw a tag. my bonus points still says no points. does it take time to show the point.
I understood that if you didn't draw you gained a point.

Arizona online system has problems just about every year! Its not the fault of last minute guys putting in, its there website!! If the deadline is midnite than the system should work flawlessly until that time. I put in early so I had no issues, but its the same scenario all the time with the Arizona website.

same as people waiting last minute to file income taxes and then the post office has to stay open late the night of the deadline.

Tired of extensions to last minute hunters who wait till the last minute; flood the website or phones then cry about it.

Agreed, I guess I feel bad for folks who may get the run around from the service folks.

@Tim - I do feel you there. Seems bad for folks who apply early... now they're giving people an extra chance who don't understand hard deadlines. For example, if someone misses their credit card payment... the CC company doesn't say "no worries, we will just give you another day". Hopefully Arizona can correct their system now that it broke.
