In an exciting move, FanDuel recently unveiled an innovative promotion in collaboration with YouTube and YouTube TV.

This offer promised a $100 discount for Sunday Ticket on subscriptions for YouTube TV users who had placed a mere $5 bet on the FanDuel platform.

However, as eager subscribers attempted to redeem their promised discount an unexpected glitch prevented many from entering their promotional code.

I just saw on my fanduel account they are running a promotion for $100 dollars off Sunday Ticket when you opt in and place a five dollar bet. I already purchased Sunday Ticket back in June. I’m curious if I can still use this discount? Will this discount work on Student Package? These are the questions that keep me up at night.

Resultantly, some subscribers vented their dissatisfaction on social media platforms, explaining how they were unable to take advantage of the promotion they had been promised.

Issue acknowledged

Fortunately, YouTube Community Manager has commented that the engineers are working on this issue. However, no ETA for a fix has been provided yet.

Appreciate the reports – our engineers are already looking into the FanDuel promotion issue. I’ll circle back once I have an update.

But those affected can surely expect the team to come up with an update soon.

Surprisingly, it has come to light that in order to fully avail of the $100 discount, users are advised to cancel their current YouTube TV subscriptions before reapplying using the promotional code.

This revelation provoked further frustration among subscribers as they have to go through a complicated process in order to receive the promised benefit.

This glitch and its subsequent workaround have led to temporary disillusionment among some fans.

Nonetheless, as it is investigated and a more streamlined solution is sought, subscribers are reminded to keep patient.
