I talk to my coworkers on Skype and they always say "anytimes," "of course," or "no problem" when I thank them for helping me.

Today, I googled "anytimes" and Google suggested that it should be "anytime" without an s. So, I am curious if "anytimes" is the correct word to say in this context.

P.S. my coworkers are American.

  • If they're native speakers, no way are they saying "anytimes." – mkennedy Oct 14 '15 at 21:31
  • But even natives slack off in internet chat, ha. – Nihilist_Frost Oct 15 '15 at 16:08

I'm assuming that it's just slang. Thank you/thanks would have "thankies", among many others. Anytimes might be just like that.

No, it's not a word. I could not find it anywhere. COCA shows the result but it is just one.

However, I'm not sure whether native speakers utter 'anytimes' even in their most informal language. Let them comment.

What we use is 'anytime'. However, be cautious using 'anytime' and 'any time'.
