PUT request not updating JSON when using a GET request, though it says it's successful?

(FYI, I’m using Jsonbin.io)
I have this code:

// #1
var req2 = new XMLHttpRequest();
req2.onreadystatechange = () => {
  if (req2.readyState == XMLHttpRequest.DONE) {
    alert(req2.responseText);
  } 
};

req2.open("GET", "https://api.jsonbin.io/b/5ed1530b79382f568bcf5662", true);
req2.setRequestHeader("secret-key", "ProbablyNoProblemInTheAPIkey");
req2.send();

// #2

let req = new XMLHttpRequest();

req.onreadystatechange = () => {
  if (req.readyState == XMLHttpRequest.DONE) {
  alert(req.responseText);
  }
};

req.open("PUT", "https://api.jsonbin.io/b/5ed1530b79382f568bcf5662", true);

req.setRequestHeader("secret-key", "ProbablyNoProblemInTheAPIkey");
req.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/json");
req.send('{"Sample": "Hello World"}');

Here is an example of my code functioning:

The PUT request is supposedly successful, but when making a GET request to access the updated version, the JSON seems the same. What is going wrong?
It seems like the PUT request was done successfully, as req.status was 200, so I don’t think you should focus on that.
