I think I figured it out ladies. They are not available for purchase so I think that is what is wrong. Thank you ladies so very much.
Actually, that's WHY they would be manufactured-sponsored assignments. They're not yet available for purchase and need reviews. So this isn't the issue. I'm not sure what is, though, if you also don't have buy-outs. Perhaps they have already been taken and the site just hasn't updated yet?
I have this problem every single time. I always just message JR about my request.
This is what I do too. If there is something on the list you want and you think you are eligible then message him and he will let you know if you can have it and if you can he will give it to you Jr Rocks!
