    I completed the challenge and received the email yesterday saying that I have earned a free exam. I think I will use it towards the AZ-303.

    Were you able to pull the voucher? I got the email but when I try to follow the instructions to redeem, says I have no  voucher.

    Edit: disregard. I checked last night and there was nothing. It just logged back on and it's showing up now.

    I got the email yesterday but I did not see the voucher and searching my email did not bring up anything.

    Tried it again today and the voucher was there and I was able to claim the voucher and schedule a free AZ-500 exam. 

    If you had problems yesterday try today or tomorrow. I think I read it could take up to 5 days.

    Yep. I appreciate its free but they are becoming quite the PITA. Loads with the same issue and it’s really difficult to contact them. Mainly please post on our forums then they mainly don’t respond.
