The most recent gift, the pet mega snack gift where you also have a chance at the Bear Pack, won't allow me to redeem it. This isin game, I've already gotten the item itself but when I try to accept it, it just tells me "Item failed to redeem." My backpack isn't full, I have no snacks at all if that effects anything about it, what's wrong?

Going to character select and back to the character or to another character will or should solve that problem. If that doesn't work, I would recommend contacting customer support.

This is a known bug. The following is a work-around which has worked many times.

Step 1) either quit the game or go to the Pirate Selection Screen and select and play a different Pirate.

Step 2) restart the game or go to the Pirate Selection Screen.

Step 3) Select the Pirate you want to redeem the gift on.

Step 4) IMMEDIATELY redeem the gift. Do NOT do anything else until you have redeemed the gift.

Hope this helps. Good Luck!

Yeah, this happened to be before, you have just wait try o try over and over, failing to redeem means there's really nothing to be fixed, it's toying with you
