Example 1:

Purchase Date: February 21
Purchase Value: $5

Bonus Free Goods not unlocked yet. You’ll still have until March 7th to make additional purchases, but if the $15 spending threshold isn’t met on or before March 7, your $5 tally will reset to $0.

Example 2:

Purchase Date: February 21
Purchase Value: $15

Bonus free goods unlocked. You’ll be able to download 3 bonus free goods until Sunday, February 25 at 11:59 PM CT (boxed in blue) and 3 more bonus free goods during the week of February 26 until Sunday, March 4 at 11:59 CT (boxed in orange.)

Any purchases made before that time (before the current claim period ends) will not qualify towards a new week.
