    From time to time I get surveys that ask some random question at the start like 'what was your favorite childhood memory' or 'what factors make you want to return to a restaurant again' and a box you write out your response. I notice this particularly while on Point Club. Curious if folks think anyone actually read these and use the info to get some idea about consumers, or if they are simply another version of the 'prove you are human' type thing?

    I'm guessing they are to "verify your humanity." The ones I've gotten never have any relevance to the actual survey topic. Or, maybe there are some open-ended text questions somewhere in the survey, and they want to see if you're going to give answers that are too short or nonsensical?

    Just received a 5 page letter in the mail from ThriftyPig, anyone ever heard of this survey, says I can earn $10-$500 every month.

    That’s a good question. When I’m on Point Club, I always put something in there. Since they review all their surveys, I don’t want to get screwed out of points. But if it’s another site, and just a partner that I’m not affiliated with I just type “I am not a bot”.

    I've alluded to this on other posts, I only have three survey companies I use and I'm about ready to fire 2 of them. I don't think it's survey burnout, I think I'm just tired of being taken advantage of. And it's my fault, I signed up for it. Although here lately if compensation for a survey is laughable, I just exit out. I don't get the DQ but I'm not wasting my time to be DQ'd and get a nickel. Like I said earlier I belong to Google Rewards surveys, which are short and sweet. They always pay at least a dime and I can always rent a movie on Google Play or buy a book. Survey companies do this because they have plenty of survey takers like myself who are willing to complete surveys for a pittance. I guess I'm sick of being used. I'm more mad at myself than the companies.

    I don't think a strike would be effective. Because the turnover these survey companies have is just too much and they often claim millions of members. So a 100 or thousand strikers would not be noticed. There's no easy way for a person to affect these survey companies and they know it. To be noticed, you have to be entrepreneurial, think bigger and use leverage. I've use the professional organizations like MRS, ESOMAR and others to send complaints, so that's a letter writing campaign. If you get the attention of management this way, it's usually upper level. You may also have to make contacts at the state level regulatory, like for the survey lotteries and drawings, those are regulated by gaming laws. However, I doubt that many of the people doing surveys think it's worth the effort, you would like to be an activist to pursue this course. Perhaps the best way to gain a following would be to find a journalist that covers surveying, at least a couple of articles written and attached to a news organization and persuade the person that there's a story here. Another thing that can be done is write survey reviews at SiteJabber.com, at least there they don't throttle you for being accused of "griping".

    I think it's a simple copy and paste sort of job of the link? That's how I managed to post a few videos here, look them up on YouTube or wherever, copy the link, then past it here. Hope that helps you.

    same EXACT email I received, Sunweazle, except that they told me that i unsubscribed by accident which I DID NOT.. I did exactly what they told me to do and that was 11 days ago. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING since. AND the new account I opened has an error message 506 and I can't take any surveys since there aren't any. SIGH

    I've been locked out of LifePoints for about a week and I finally received a rather bizarre email from them, as follows:- With very great regret we want to announce that you will no longer be able to access this account. But do not to worry and not focus on the problem, but on the solution we offer. As a one-time courtesy for being a valued member of our community, follow these steps to help us reinstate your original LifePoints. 1. Firstly, please go to lifepointspanel.com and complete the registration process using a NEW email address. 2. Once you have re-joined our community using a NEW email address, please respond to this ticket and let us know your new and old email address. We will need to know both to reinstate your original LifePoints and transfer your original membership LifePoints into your new membership. To me, it looks as if someone has screwed up big time at Lifepoints - the sentence that cracked me up was " But do not to worry and not focus on the problem, but on the solution we offer". That sounds like an apology without actually apologising... Has anyone else seen something similar?
