    **** This is for the iOS and Android versions of the game ****

    ****EDIT ****
    There has recently been an update allowing you to revisit previous months so buying one month of premium will allow you to get all badges. Thanks to Dr Tinus for the info. I will leave this solution up in full in case its ever reverted.

    You will need either your free month of premium or to purchase at least 1 month of premium for this to work correctly, I understand there are guides out there that will be fairly similar i.e changing date however this is to ensure that you can use your premium at the same time as changing your date.

    1. Open Solitaire on your device
    (Doing this will ensure the game syncs the data and signs you in correctly as it seems to be
    a bit hit and miss when the date is set incorrectly)
    2. When signed in and you are on the home screen press the home key on your device and go
    into settings > Date/Time and set the date to the last day of the month you wish to work on
    e.g November 30th (This will allow you to work on the entire month of November without
    having to keep changing your date)
    3. Go back into Solitaire and you will see that your premium has disappeared. This is because
    the subscription is based off the start date and you are currently before this date. You will
    also see the Daily Challenges with today's date on it. Don't worry about the date shown,
    tap Daily Challenges. Using the example above you will load into the
    Daily Challenges for November 30th, you can tap the calendar tab and have access to the
    entire month too.
    4. Once in Daily Challenges press the home key and change your date back to the correct one.
    5. Go back into Solitaire and you will see the little premium badge reappear at the top right
    but the calendar will remain in November.

    Now this is how you set it up and you can begin to pop challenges left, right and centre earning you double coins for each one completed. This is by far the fastest method I have found and saves you from having to purchase premium for a full year providing you can get it done within a month, if not just buy another month.

    As I said I know there are similar guides but I couldn't find one for this specific method so here it is. Let me know in the comments if there are any additions that need to be made!

    exorrThis no longer works. You can get premium to appear for previous months using this method, however as soon as you finish a game it automatically brings you to the current date and does not count the game played in the previous month as a premium game.

    *** This solution is intended for the PC version of the game. ***

    This achievement can be attained while working towards the "Go for the Gold" and "Go for the Bronze" achievements. If you want to get this achievement while doing the "Go for the Gold" achievement please check out my guide for that achievement.

    With Microsoft Solitaire Collection closed, change your computer's date to one year prior (So the same month you're currently in but last year. I usually chose the 25th of the month to have enough days available). Next start up Microsoft Solitaire Collection. ** If you want to get the achievements quicker I recommend buying the Premium Edition. ** Now start doing the Daily Challenges starting from the first date of the month. Try to do all five challenges for each day. If you are stuck on a challenge, skip it to save yourself the time. Assuming you've purchased the Premium Edition, it will take you about 5-7 days of challenges to get the Silver Badge. Now close Microsoft Solitaire Collection and change the date to the following month. Reopen Microsoft Solitaire Collection and repeat the process for 9 more months.

    Once you've done 10 months of Silver Badges you can start working towards Bronze Badges. You will only need to do so for 2 months since you've already received 10 Bronze Badges while working towards Silver. Bronze Badges should take you about 2-3 days of challenges, assuming you've purchased the Premium Edition.

    If for some reason the achievement doesn't pop, close Microsoft Solitaire Collection and change the date back to today's date. Reopen Microsoft Solitaire Collections and the achievement should pop right away.

    ** Some people have reported glitches on getting the achievement to pop. I have never had this issue on any Microsoft Collection I played, so I cannot confirm whether it is "glitchy." **

    ** I don't know if this method would work on a mobile device. I cannot confirm whether it does or not. **

    ** 2019 Update - A user has stated that they cannot use Premiums services on the prior months. I no longer have Premium, so I cannot confirm this. Either way the solution works but it will take longer. **

    CanadianLooniI'm having the same problem, Beelzebozo. 9/10 for Silvers, even though I have 10 silver medals recorded in my awards history. My bronze correctly shows 10/12. Seems it's just stopped recording silver medals for some reason.

    Edit: Looks like this problem was only for January 2017. Just got my silver for Feb and it unlocked.

    talkietoasta84I'm on the Android version and I'm having the same problem as above for the bronze and silver badges. I've completed 11 silvers and 12 bronzes, but it's only counted 9 silvers and 10 bronzes. I think this might have something to do with whether you have a connection to Xbox Live at the exact moment you get the badges. If anyone else can shed some light on this, it'd be much appreciated :)

    mrbellekI had the same problem as above. In-game tracker showed silver at 11/10 but the achievement tracker showed 9/10 for the last two months. Coincidentally, I got two silver medals by putting the clock back on PC. Got another silver medal this morning (on Android) and the achievement popped right away.

    New solution following KillaQueens515 PC method as of 2019

    KillaQueens515 gave a good method however since about a year or two ago your premium cannot follow to previous months. But I have found a workaround to help speed this grind up.

    1.) Make sure you are premium. It is 1.99 membership that blocks ads and give extra coins.

    2.) Change date to any prior month.

    3.) Open Daily Challenges under your non premium month you chose (ex. Im doing June 2019). DO NOT START ANY GAME YET OR BACK OUT TO MAIN MENU!

    4.) Switch the date back to the current date and voila!!!!!!! You have premium for the previous months. Downside is that every game(day) you finish, it takes you back to the current month dates but you just use this method every time as long as you are a premium member.

    ALSO from what I heard if achievement don't unlock, just get a medal in current time to sync up with servers.

    One Less DuckGreat workaround! I definitely used this method after reading it.

    I also had horrible issues with syncing. By the time I was done with the game I had 15 bronze, 15 silver and 12 golds I think. What I THINK works is (any one of, if not all) reinstalling the game, restarting your computer, signing out and back in via the Xbox App, and then trying to play for medals. Hopefully that helps anyone else stuck with syncing issues!
