I go to Give us your 2 cents, answer about 50-100 questions, and then they say I do not qualify for the survey.
I am an organic consumer. Today I answered at least 60 questions about my organic choices and purchases, along with giving them the usual zip code, family size, age of members, income, race, education level, etc.
I was then told I did not qualify for the survey. I am questioning the ethics of this. They have collected extremely valuable information. AND they do it everyday on thousands of us, yet pay nothing for it by saying we do not qualify. They are marketing and selling our information. My inbox and mail box are full of it.
There is not any company that requires 60 questions of information to qualify someone to answer 5 questions about "Hot Pockets." I can see the need to qualify demographical information, but if a company wants to know how often I buy almond milk or gluten free pasta, then they need to pay for that information. That is a survey. We signed up to GET PAID for our information. Anything much past "Do you use organic products?" and then identifying the general category that the survey pin points is all that should be allowed unless they are going to pay.
I went to see if I got credit for all that information that was collected on me, and the FusionCash account page says "see account" with the word account as a link. When I press it, all it does is refresh the page. What am I doing wrong? Where is my account information for Give us your 2cents?
What are your experiences with these companies? Are you continually spending time giving away specific information for free and not getting paid for it?
Many people have left posts stating that if you do the daily offers everyday, you can earn $50-60 per month. So far I have spent over three hours of my time answering questions among the various days and only earned 75 cents because I do not qualify for most of the surveys. Yet I have answered 100's of very specific questions. I have earned well completing offers for other things like business cards and trials, but I am thinking that the business ethics of the survey industry may not be a good fit for me.
Can someone give me some tips on how to have a better chance at getting paid for my survey time?
Thanks so much.
