My goody bag ran out yesterday (3rd July) and I read that I needed to wait till 12AM for it to totally expire. So I went to buy my new goody bag this morning and it keeps saying "At this moment you can only top-up your balance. We are having a few gremlins with our goody bags."
Is it just saying this cause I'm on lockdown? What even is lockdown?
And if not- why does it generally mean?
Thanks.

You can't queue them for now, but they are looking into it - hence you have to wait for yours to expire

Sorry

Or set it up to recur - you can cancel whenever
Feel free to give me Kudos or mark my answer as a solution if I have helped.
