Gee, I'm having a run of bad luck with survey projects lately.
Besides the issue about the product test I mentioned previously,
I just received an email from a study I did for a University.
I completed everything successfully and they supposedly
emailed me a $25 GC. But I never got it so I wrote back to
let them know and asked them to resend it. They said they
did but I still haven't got it. It's coming from a third party
so of couse I check my regular email box and the junk mail box, too.
But still nothing. Guess I will write them again and hope
for the best.

packaging they provided. Yesterday I got a letter from them listing
several possible reasons why I didn't qualify for the study???
I don't know which of the reasons they gave applied to me but they
are asking me to return the $ incentive they sent in the original
package with the palm pilot and study instructions. I can't even
remember how much the incentive was. But they did give a way to
contact them if I have questions.

Here's an update for others that do surveys like the one I described.
I called the toll free number listed in the letter and spoke with a
wonderful representative who annotated my file that I do not have
to return the cash incentive. She was able to let me know exactly
what happened and I was able to explain my situation at the time
of the study.

So it pays to contact survey companies to iron out any issues
that may come up like this.

Here is a website i found that lists Surveys that are blacklisted. Seems like a pretty good site to check in to.. I hope it hasn't been posted before..

i did the beverage one twice from lightspeed and got paid no problem. i am surprised they would bother to send it to you then say they did not want you plus ask for the 5 or 10 dollars advance they sent !!!!!!!! it is good you called right away !!!!!!!!!!! i hope you do not have grief again !!!!!!
