Just wondering what others think about the survey section and opting in to lucid.Personally I am afraid to do so.Seems they track everything and sell your info.Has anyone done this? For the low points doesnt seem like a good idea.

They all track us and sell our info. Set up your cookie manager so each site's cookies disappear when you leave the site.

Don't know why that's all crossed out.

I have been contacted by businesses and sites after taking surveys.  I can't say for certain that it was Tellwut, BUT I know I took the daily surveys yesterday and they are not showing up on my account.  So starting today I will be taking a screen shot as soon as I am done taking them and check it again the next morning before I begin the questions for the day.  This has happened to be 2X in the past week.  And I did log in.  Do paying attention isn't an option anymore, or I am just wasting time.  I did get a couple of surveys done last week with them, but it was a wash with the 2 days that I didn't get credit.  Sooo, that  being said, I do think that our info is sold by the survey companies and that is how I am ending up with over 100 junk emails every day.  Ridiculous.  I don't open them, I just delete and go on.  And deleting cookies is a good thing.  And don't do any banking surveys.  There, I am done now.

In general the Tellwut user generated surveys award each time it is completed, and when I don't get the points, it is likely because I forgot to click the submit button before moving to the next survey. To accommodate this possibility, I bookmark the user survey page and click that link instead of the next. This way I'm absolutely sure of exhausting the user surveys each day. Note that you must complete at least one external survey every two weeks or the user surveys are turned off.

 

Now, In the past I've had problems with Lucid surveys. They have a penchant to reverse the survey's on "quality" grounds. This is most likely because they are trying to get a very specific result for a survey and exclude panelists that don't help, or they are just plain cheap. I use the archive feature of browsers to save to a folder and each subsequent page. PointClub is particularly prone to do this unethical invalidation, and the way they do it is very, very sneaky. They invalidate your surveys months later and make it very difficult to discover, because you must page back many times. I also block Lucid cookies unless the survey won't progress.

And for the 3rd time this month (at least) I have gotten 55 points for the day.  They may add more on, but there have been days that 55 points was it.  Is this the new threshold amount for answering daily questions?  I am going to have to end it with them if so.  It takes me longer to log in than to do 55 points worth.
