I received a chat invitation once before but do not see one anymore. How can I chat again?

Currently the opportunity to chat is ‘proactive’ meaning that predetermines specific scenarios where a customer will see a chat. If a user does not meet the predetermined requirements, they will not see another invitation. Chat invitations are also based upon customer care associate availability. If representatives are busy assisting other customers, a chat invitation will not be offered. Chat is offered 7 days a week from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. US Eastern Time.
