just like there is a gift to friend button. There should be a -Gift to random member.-

Requirements? 1. must be none premium member. 2. have Logged in some time in the previous 12, 24, or 48 hours.

3. to activate on the receiving end. JUST CLICK IT!
instead of that clunky activate guess pass page that sucked back in 2014. that's right 3 years and no update on that page to make things quick and painless. instead it continues to be the "Will this one work?" system.

Crunchyroll GET IT TOGETHER! Other wise why should we NOT pirate when your site or apps don't always work as competently as theirs. (seriously when I was premium member I got errors all the time and so many more on the app versions)

Learn to update or one day have it all blow up in your face so hard you can't recover.

Just in case you didn't realize there's a limit of redeeming a max of 10 of them within a six month time frame. If you go over that, then, without any kind of message, they won't work for you until enough time passes to be eligible again, and doing that invalidates the code for anyone else, too, because it marks it as redeemed.

People giving them away in the thread could make what you say possible all by themselves, simply by posting the full clickable URL that they get sent in PM, adding the necessary bbcode url tags with a button-click, instead of just pasting only the isolated text code in their posts... That's what I do, anyway, like this, except with a valid code:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/guest_pass?code=(code goes here)

One time, two people clicked my link very close to each other, and they both got passes from the same code. I know that happened because I was watching how long it would take for someone to redeem it (because I then delete my posts there as soon as I see that the code was used so other people aren't disappointed). I went to the profile of the first one that showed up, and they had gotten the crown. Then I back-arrowed in my browser to my guest pass page, and the user had changed for the same line. Both of them had gotten crowns.

What you have said already exists. The issue is users normally only copy and paste the required code and not the full link like asharka has posted mainly to stop bots from redeeming them. The full link requires a yes are you sure click that is hardly annoying for something that is free.
CR could make it that you have to watch a bunch of ads to redeem it.

With your suggestion
What happens if the user doesn't want one just let it go to waste? Or if there is only a day or under remaining on the code and the winning user doesn't login in time? Just because you/they login yesterday/today doesn't mean you/they will tomorrow. I have given out 30 day codes as well as 48 hour codes. Some weren't taken for a week or more.

All could have been giving away if the option was there on the apps. I hate Using PC to watch my entertainment. I'm not saying get rid of the current option. just shouldn't be the ONLY option. that is why it's dumb.

What happens if the user doesn't want one just let it go to waste?


He can pass it to the other person using the same system. Basically, Crunchy will use the same button but in a different context.


Or if there is only a day or under remaining on the code and the winning user doesn't login in time?


You can send the notification to the user, wait for max three days and if there is no response repeat the whole process until the code is redeemed or expired.
You can also wait or do not send anything to that person at all, but since premium codes can expire for users that do not log very often and / or check their inbox, I think it is fair to use the same rules to gift codes.
Or, if Crunchy want to be more sophisticated, there could be a set of rules to filter potential winners (all the data is in the database, I presume, so it would not be that hard to do) and people that did not log for a week (month? Year?) will be automatically excluded. The same goes to people that already have premium accounts, who, say, redeemed a code in the last few days et cetera. Just a thought.

You are Awesome. Business' should not be sheltered like a child. They need to adapt and improve and FIX THE Cancel membership button in our setting or just remove if it's not going to work with in the site. (to cancel my payment option I had to do it outside of crunchyroll)
