If in any one day (24 hour period starting at midnight local time) the same member submits/updates 5 prices they will earn a total of 1000 points. If more than 5 prices are submitted on any one day by the same member, that member will not earn more than 1000 points from the Post/Update a Gasoline price feature. The member will continue to be eligible to earn points using other web site features, again earning points to a maximum of 5 times per day.
