Lost Duolingo Streak? Arggg, that hurts! Building a Duolingo streak takes time. And there are occasions when we suddenly find ourselves extra busy. As a result, we skip a day or two from completing our Duolingo daily goals.
Have you had the following experience? You log into Duolingo and realize with dismay that your streak number has dropped back down to zero.
But you may not have lost your streak yet. Yeah, even though it dropped to zero you still have hope. There is the possibility you may have it back. And the good news is that you could have it back without it costing you a dime.
If you have just lost your streak today, then continue reading.
Let us introduce you to our Super Hero in this post. His name is Streak Saver. He’s been finding ways how to help people maintain and restore their streaks. So you’re in good hands. He wants to share his discoveries with you.
Yes, if you have some 3D lens you can fetch them and check out Streak Saver’s logo. It’s a cool 3D logo.
Ok, ok… I get it, you have just lost a streak that has taken you a long time to build so you’re not in the mood for 3D pictures. So let’s dive right into what you came for in the first place.
Lost Duolingo Streak – Here are two ways to avoid that from happening
One of them is a preventive measure. And the other is a curative measure.
We will start explaining the preventive measure. This means purchasing a Streak Freezer (at the Duolingo Shop) before you even lost your streak. If you have already lost it, this will not work.
The curative measure is becoming a Duolingo Plus member. We will enter into details about this through this post. This can bring your streak back even though you’ve already lost it.
Duolingo Plus member:
Did you know that every Duolingo Plus member has one streak saver a month? And this streak saver comes as an additional day besides the Streak Freeze you buy at the Duolingo Shop.
And it even works for those that were not Plus members when they lost the streak. As long as they became Plus members the day they lost it.
Two examples in which you can have your streak back.
To explain how you can recover your streak we have decided to use these two examples. Let’s hope that you’re in one of them.
Here is the first example:
Let’s imagine you have had a very busy agenda lately. You have been daily completing your Duolingo goal, but one day you were not able to even log in.
A day later, you log in and your streak number is gone to zero. You hadn’t purchased a Streak Freeze from the Duolingo Shop. And please don’t go and buy it now because it won’t bring your streak back. It will only help you keep your future streaks.
Streak Freeze should be bought before you lose your streak but after you have lost it, purchasing one won’t bring it back.
So, this may be a bit disappointed. There have been Duolingo users that have gone with excitement to the Duolingo Shop. They buy the Streak Freeze, only to discover that their streak continues in zero.
But don’t worry, there is still a way to bring your streak back. Yeah!
You can become a Duolingo Plus member and your streak will be back. It’s important to mention you must become a Duolingo Plus member the day you lost the streak. If you wait for more days after you lost the steak, you will not be able to recover it. You will still receive all the other benefits of becoming a Duolingo Plus member, though.
Here is our second example:
You’re a very organized person and had seen beforehand that these days were coming. As a result, you had purchased a “Streak Freeze” at Duolingo Shop.
So one day you could not log into Duolingo and you missed that day! But you’re relaxed, you had bought ahead of time a Duolingo Freeze and it preserved your streak.
But then you weren’t able again to log into Duolingo the second day either. And finally, you rush into your Duolingo account the third day and you’re welcomed by a zero in your streak.
Don’t worry! You need to become a Duolingo Plus member that third day (again, it has to be the same day you lost the streak). And you will recover your streak.
You may be saying at this point “But you promised that restoring my streak wouldn’t cost me a dime! And since Duolingo Plus is the paid version of Duolingo, it will cost me some money after all!” And the answer is: you can still recover your streak completely free.
There are two ways you can become a Duolingo Plus member for free:
1.) The most obvious way of becoming a Duolingo Plus member is being willing to pay the fee. But if you have never been a Duolingo Plus member before, you can test drive it for free. It’s a no-brainer. You have nothing to lose and a streak to win.
2.) The second way you can become a Duolingo Plus member is by inviting a friend to join Duolingo. You can do this by giving them your “affiliate link”.
Your friend can then join through your “affiliate link”. When this happens, Duolingo grants you the Plus membership for one (1) week.
You enjoy all the benefits of being a Plus member and among them, saving your streak! And it doesn’t cost you a dime!
How do you find your Duolingo affiliate link?
You must click on your profile icon and a window will come up. In that window search for “Free Plus” and click it. A new window will appear with your “affiliate link”.
The day you need to restore your streak, contact a friend. Tell them you have a cool language platform they can join completely free. And send them your “affiliate link”. Easy, isn’t it?
Go try it! It works! Many have been lamenting that their streak is gone forever. But after checking this out they were celebrating to see their streak back!
Did you try it? Are you in the mood now to see Streak Saver’s 3D logo? Go get your 3D lens then. 🙂
Once you have your Streak back
We would like to suggest you a few things. First of all, go buy a Streak Freezer ahead of time. 😉
On May 27th, 2020 we received an email from Duolingo telling us about a new reward. To receive it, you need to meet your daily goals on Duolingo. You could then discover a Streak Freezer inside the treasure chest. So, that’s a cool way to prepare yourself too. Our second suggestion is to continue achieving your Duolingo goals.
Our third suggestion is not to limit yourself to learn a language only with Duolingo. Duolingo can only take you so far. This suggestion should not be surprising to you. Because the very founder and CEO of Duolingo, Luis von Ahn, promises this concerning his platform. We quote him referring to the realistic results any person can achieve with the platform. “Get users to a level between advanced beginner and early intermediate”. So, please use this occasion you temporarily lost your streak to your advantage. Start to explore other paths that can take you beyond the early intermediate level.
