Peanut Labs Surveys Listed Under FC Surveys Today?
« on: June 02, 2014, 09:23:51 am »
While I don't mind it at all, unfortunately, I DQ'd out of 4 of those surveys and they did not pay the penny.  I also am not able to "hide" any of these surveys.  Clicking on the "X" is futile.  I'm not happy about this new set-up.  It's been tough lately qualifying for many of the surveys since the companies are looking for more hispanics than anything else.  Now, I can't even get the bonuses on the surveys.  Great!

The first place I went when I logged in was the FC Surveys and the Peanut Labs surveys were also there.After going through all the regular FC surveys,I started on the Peanut ones.I didn't get them all done because every time I finished attempting what they had listed they kept addng more.I got a few DQ bonuses but didn't qualify for any.Having Peanut Labs on the FC Surveys page makes them much more visible and I will be more likely to try them.

Peanut Labs surveys only issue the DQ bonus if you actually start the survey and then get screened out.  DQ'ing during the qualification questions at the beginning (which may be repeated) will not trigger the DQ bonus. 

The "offer hide" functionality (red X) was not working for Peanut Labs surveys yesterday morning (when you made your post), but it was fixed shortly after that.

I'm curious as to where you got the impression that "companies are looking for more hispanics than anything else".  I can say from our side (i.e. looking at all the surveys) it is really not the case :)

I can see where they think it's looking for more hispanics, as I've had several surveys from Peanut Labs asking as the very first question if I was latino.  Clicking no got an immediate "sorry this survey isnt for you."

That's a fair point, but I would reply: The census puts the Hispanic population in the US at 17%.  So it should be logical that at least 17% of surveys would be targeted to a Hispanic population.  The other thing to keep in mind is that, in some cases, you may be DQ'd after a particular question but DQ'd because of a prior question.  They delay the DQ until all the screening questions are done, and ethnicity (as a potentially sensitive question) is often pushed towards the end of the screening process, after you've already invested some time and effort in the process, making the ethnicity question less likely to cause you to drop out.

I like the two posts from Fusion Cash Administration.

Please members, make a not of it. That is very
well said.

I tried a ton of surveys and I NEVER qualified.
Actually, I am beginning to feel guilty when I try
one and I get 1 cent "compensation" prize.

I do not blame it on this or that. I just do not fit
in anything anymore! Companies have very
specific criteria when they do those surveys.

Some of us just are out of the games.

There are other ways of making a few
dollars here at Fusion Cash.

I wasn't saying that I was upset over it, just saying I understood why they might think they only want latinos when disqualified after it being the first question.  Personally I'm usually pleasantly shocked when I qualify for ANY survey lol.

I haven't had any problems with the peanut surveys, I have gotten the penny when I have been disqualified. I actually am pretty pleased with them being  with the FC surveys because otherwise I forget about them more often than I remember them.

Peanut labs surveys do not pay as much as FC surveys and they are much harder to qualify for. Well they are much harder for me to qualify for.
