You don't say which platform you are on, but for the Wii, XBOX, and PS3 when you start the game you pick one of four save slots from the title menu. As you play the adventure game, your progress is saved automatically to your chosen save slot at intervals (usually on level entry and exit and you will see a picure of Eon in the corner of the screen during the save operation). If you choose to exit a level, any progress since the last level entry save will be lost.

If you’re playing on the Xbox 360 or PS3, you need to make sure you’re signed in with your username/avatar before you start playing the game, as well as picking the storage device and then the game will auto-save on at the end of each chapter

The character level and gold saves to the actual skylander figure, so there may be an issue with the portal or your figure. Level progress, collection, arena..etc are the only thing saved to the game save itself.

I have the same problem. When I achieve a level up, or purchase an upgrade it's lost as soon as the character is removed from the portal. It isn't a problem with the characters because it applies to all of them. I even returned the portal to the store and got a new one.

I also tried changing the characters name to force the portal to save the character and still nothing. Super annoying!

I have the same issue! It would seem data is not saving to the skylanders as intended. I noticed it occasionally before beating the game but then when I went and started a second save game to do the nightmare mode I set ownership to the new save game and now none of the data saves to the skylanders.

On ps4, you take ownership and assign a nickname to any of your characters before it will save game progress. After doing this, the game automatically assigns a memory slot for progress.

You must set up your PSN acct thru the console before it will start keeping your saved game progress.

We are hoping to replace our Wii Skylanders Trap Team disk for a new one but we want to lose the progress we have made. Where does the adventure progress actually get saved? On the Wii? Or on the Skylanders Trap Team disk?

I am playing Skylanders Imaginators for PS4 and am having the same problem where it doesn't auto-save properly. Beat a level, have the icon flash, however when we exit the game and come back, no data is store there. I had the same problem with Trap Team. Doesn't seem like this bug is fixed. You would think they would take a little extra time to make sure it works properly. Very annoying for a 9 year old son.
