* Solving a Same Letter puzzle while the same letter hasn't been called yet. Starting in Season 32, the category has awarded a $1,000-bonus for calling said letter, giving contestants the chance to earn at least $2,500 with one spin. However, this hasn't stopped contestants from solving the puzzle with that letter unrevealed.

* During the Speed-Up, any contestant who tries to solve without calling a letter first. In this case, the three-second time limit starts immediately after the first guess and contestants are not allowed to call a letter after trying to solve. Furthermore, with consonants worth at least $1,500 apiece, you'd be leaving money on the table. Subverted if only vowels remain since they're worth no money.

Also subverted if it's a team episode, you have no money, only singles remain, and consonants are worth anything besides $6,000 apiece, as one consonant from any other possible value still would not surpass the house minimum of $2,000.



** January 25, 2016 (Teen Best Friends): The yellow team receives control and asks to solve. Pat firmly suggests calling a letter first. Knowing the puzzle is SECURITY GUARD and with S___R_T_ G__R_ revealed, they call '''E''', the first unrevealed letter overall. Pat dryly responds "Okay" and the team solves for the house minimum, though they still won the game by a landslide and went on to win the Bonus Round.

** One couple in April 2017 used the card on only $600, but the bonus cash proved worthless since they then solved and ended up below the couple house minimum of $2,000, wasting the card. They also went on to the bonus round where the Wild Card could have been much more useful.
