I am also having the exact same issue regarding Rising Talent 30 Free Connects. It has been over a week since I received the badge and yet my account still has not been credited with the 30 free connects.
I have tried to reach out to support with no success so the next best option that I could think of was to reply to your related thread regarding this matter.
Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.

I received Rising Talent badge, I think on December 23rd, and I thought that I will get 30 connects when I use all current connects, but looking at this topic I see that not how it works. How can I get them?
Sorry about that. One of our customer support agents will reach out to you regarding the 30 free connects for earning the Rising Talent badge. Thank you!
