Free Echo Dot Promotion?

I built and submitted a skill for review during the Free Echo Dot promotion, it has been waiting for review for almost a week and now it's Nov and the link to register the skill once it's published doesn't work... it was supposed to be open through Nov 15 according to the landing page during October.

I have the same problem. Submitted my skill before the end of October and it was just approved.

Yup, same issue here too. Just submitted a ticket. I also have a coworker who is in the same boat.

The response I got in my ticket was that the form has to be filled out prior to October 31st. That is *NOT* the impression I got from the form they provided. They said we can only fill out the form ONE TIME and we needed to provide the skill ID from our published skill. How could we possibly provide our published skill ID when it wasn't certified!? UGH.

I believe the skill ID stays the same as it is in development. I have two published skills and there is only one ID for each of them. Whatever ID you have in developer console (https://developer.amazon.com/alexa/console/ask) is what you supply (they are the ID's I used)

I thought the form had said not to submit until the skill is published. I had two skills under review and did not know if either or both would be approved by the 15th, especially if there were any issues.

I submitted prior to publishing/certification per the directions and got accepted after the fact. However, I haven't received a promo code or anything else regarding the Dot as of yet. The landing page I saw definitely had language that advised to submit early, even if it hadn't passed certification.

It's not like we're trying to take advantage of anything, it's an honest mistake that arose from ambiguous language. I'm sure they can verify pretty easily that the skill was submitted within the correct timeframe, and there will be some leeway.

I wouldn't even say it's a mistake on any of our parts... the form said "enter your published id here, don't submit until it's published" and they also said "we're extending the acceptance deadline to Nov 15 for those submitted for approval before Nov 1"

Is there any sort of response by an admin? I would really appreciate this feedback being sent up the chain!
