You accumulate Daisy Points as you participate in activities on the Daisy Brains site. The more points you have, the more active you are on the site. You will notice that gaining more points is one way to earn achievement patches. So keep up the training and start earning those points!!

Why do I not have access to some of the brain games, brain teasers and drawing challenges?

If you are a trial member, you have access to all of the brain games, brain teasers and drawing challenges for a limited time. After that your time has expired, your free trial membership will be complete and you will need to sign up for a full membership in order to have access to all of the brain games, brain teasers, and drawing challenges each and every day.

What do the stars at the top and the bottom of a picture in the Gallery represent?

The star on the bottom right hand corner of a drawing is there for you to click if you "like" a picture. By clicking this star, you are informing the user who drew the picture that you liked their picture. You do also earn Daisy Points when you do this.

The star in the top left appears when other users like your drawing. This star will turn different colors as more and more individuals start to "like" your drawing.

What is the 'My Garden' area?

Log-In Questions

I am unable to remember my username or password. What do I do?

Your username and password were created when you established your account. You may have also updated your password in the "My Account" section of the website. The link to the "My Account" section is in the upper right hand corner of the screen.

If you cannot remember your username or password, you can always have a new password sent to you by clicking on this link: http://www.daisybrains.com/members and selecting the “Forgot Your Username” or "Forgot Your Password" link.

Was my password automatically assigned or did I create it?

But you can reset your password at any time by clicking on "My Account" which is in the upper right-hand corner and click Change Password.

When creating a new password, you must make sure that you use the email address that was used when creating your Daisy Brains account. An email will be sent to that email address after the form is filled out and will confirm your new password. Please keep this password in a secure location for future reference.

I never received the email with my new password. What do I do?

Make sure that you entered the same email address that you used when you signed up with Daisy Brains. After confirming that you used the same email address, it might be necessary to check your email spam folder to make sure that the email did not go into that folder.

If you still did not receive an email with your password and are still having problems logging into your account, please email info@daisybrains.com and include Password reset as the subject line. Make sure to provide your email address and username so we can update the correct account. The Daisy Brains support team will get in touch with you as soon as possible.

Subscription Information

Will I be charged for access to DaisyBrains.com?

You have access to our site for free for a limited time. For full site access, we provide different subscription terms in increments of 3 months, 12 months, 24 months and 60 months. We will not charge for access to the site, unless you've elected a subscription option and entered payment information for paid subscription services on our site.

Access to Subscription Services requires payment of fees. If you have entered payment information on our site, your credit card will be billed only the fee associated with the subscription you elected. You will be billed up front for total due on the subscription term you've selected. Auto-renewal of your subscription is set up in the system to automatically renew when your subscription period ends. You may change this setting at any time during your subscription term by updating settings in the "My Account" area.

How much does DaisyBrains.com cost?

Basic trial membership to DaisyBrains.com is free for a limited time and you will have complete use of the site during that free trial membership time period.

Subscribers have full access to DaisyBrains.com, which includes all brain games, brain teasers, and drawing challenges. Prices vary based on subscription duration, i.e. 3 months, 12 months, etc... Please visit our link at https://www.daisybrains.com/join-now/ to view our price list.

How do I switch from free access to full access (upgrade My Account)?

If you are a free member, you can upgrade to a subscribed account by going to https://www.daisybrains.com/join-now/

Review the subscription terms (durations) that best meet your needs. Signing up is easy and can be completed on-line just a matter of minutes. All you need is your current contact information and valid credit card information to activate today!

How will I be billed for my elected subscription?

Our subscriptions are billed as one up-front amount (based on the subscription term elected) versus monthly. Once payment is submitted, you receive access for the next 3, 12, 24 or 60 months respectively. Prices are shown on the purchase page broken down by month for comparison purposes only. Auto-renewal of your subscription is set up in the system to automatically renew when your initial subscription period ends. You may change this setting at any time during your subscription term.

What are my payment method options?

We accept all valid major credit cards as noted on our website.

How does Auto-Renewal work and can I adjust so that my subscription does not auto-renew?

When subscribing to DaisyBrains.com, your account will automatically be set up for Auto Renewal unless you select the button to turn off Auto Renewal. This simply means that at the end of your elected and paid subscription term, your account will automatically renew for the same subscription term at the current subscription cost. The credit card used for your original subscription will be billed for the new renewal term. If we determine that your credit card has expired and cannot be used for your auto-renewal, we will request updated credit card information.

You may adjust the Auto Renewal setting at any time during your subscription term. If you would prefer to not have your Account auto-renew at the end of your subscription, you may change the default setting to have your subscription expire at the end of your subscription time period. Once your subscription expires, you will need to manually re-subscribe for full access to DaisyBrains.com. Allowing the system to automatically renew keeps your subscription active for the same subscription duration as originally purchased.

To view and/or change your auto-renewal setting, please follow these steps:

  1. Make sure you are logged into your Account.
  2. Click "My Account" in the upper right-hand corner of the DaisyBrains.com page.
  3. Click "Edit Personal Information."
  4. The "Auto Renewal" flag defaults to ‘Yes'. If you wish to change the default setting to "No", simply click on the Auto Renewal flag field and change the setting to "No"

Again, you may change this setting at any time during your subscription term.

How do I access my Account Information?

To view or update your account information or cancel your subscription, log in to DaisyBrains.com and go to the "My Account" link in the top right corner of the screen.

Account Details are available for viewing, settings modification (i.e. Auto Renewal) and links for additional actions are included on this page.

Can I cancel my subscription and receive a refund?

Yes, your satisfaction is our priority. For all subscription options, we offer a 14 day money back guarantee. You may terminate Subscription Services within the first fourteen (14) days of paid Subscription Services and receive a full refund of your subscription payment. After fourteen (14) days, your subscription will remain in effect for the duration of the subscription selected.

If you wish to cancel within the first fourteen (14) days and request a refund, you may notify us by the clicking the "My Account" link and canceling your account or emailing us at info@daisybrains.com. Refunds are processed through our Customer Service Department within 48 hours of receipt of required information.

I cannot access my paid subscription. Why?

Possible reasons include:

  1. Paid DaisyBrains.com subscriptions are activated immediately. If you purchased a regular subscription but do not have full access, make sure that you are logged in with the same account information you provided during the subscribe process. If you are not using the correct login information, you will not have full access.
  2. If your credit card was declined through the payment settlement process, you will not have access to DaisyBrains.com. Credit card settlement could take up to four business days, so immediate access to DaisyBrains.com could subsequently be denied.

If you've explored these possible causes and still cannot access your paid subscription account, please contact/email us at info@daisybrains.com.

Why do I see a DaisyBrains.com charge on my credit card?

The only charges you will incur from DaisyBrains.com are for initial subscription services elected or a renewal for a subscription service. All DaisyBrains.com subscriptions are set up to auto-renew at the end of the original subscription term. The credit card you used on your original subscription will be charged for the renewal subscription. The auto-renewal default may be changed on your account at any time of your subscription term.

If you have questions about a charge, please submit an email to info@daisybrains.com.
