Question-How do you complete the Current Events Survey?
« on: January 05, 2020, 08:08:28 am »
I've tried this "video" survey twice in the past couple days and it brings up an ad for a company and how it would help companies. It's not a survey in itself.  Did anyone get to do the survey?

I tried it too, I got the same thing you did. Apparently it's a play/ploy to get us to sign up for that survey site. I decided that was a big "NO" for me!

I tried and was unsuccessful. You have to sign-up to take surveys.

I tried it once when it first showed up, but it just leads you to a page where you have to sign up for surveys. They'll ask for your personal information such as name, number, and address which is a big no-no for me.

     Never works for me either.  It goes to Survey.com and has a shopping cart on the loading page, with company brands they work with.  I don't even see a place to register, just a "client login", not that I would join anyway.  Wish FC would just remove this but no biggie.    ???

I agree with everyone.  This is not an opportunity to take a survey, it is an advertisement for a survey company to get clients.  The "sign up" appears to be a sign up to hire this company for your business, not to take a survey.  I am not sure how this is an offer, but its there and we can't really do anything about it.  No big deal once you realize what it is, but annoying nonetheless.

I get the same thing and agree with everyone... I just removed it from my list so I don't have to see it

Just click on it.  It went to the survey for me.  When I finished it went to a white page with  two words in the upper left corner   something=true  and then just sat there.  I x out.  And it did not credit at the time but I just checked and it did credit.  It was 6 cents instead of 8.

Yes it is.  I took the survey.  Was not asked to sign up for anything.

I just tried this & it was a quick survey on politics that credited in a few minutes after completing -- no personal information other than age was asked.  Perhaps you just tried it after it hit the quota for that day, if they have a quota -- some do... keep trying, if it immediately goes to some place other than a survey, just X out of it.

I have not attempted this one because I have not understood it but after reading some of these posts, I may try it tomorrow and then update.

I have earned my 5 cents for today and want to save the Current Events survey for tomorrow.

Thanks for sharing that.  I never thought about the quota, maybe that is the issue!  I'll keep trying and let you know if I ever have success!

Did you already have an account with that survey provider? I just tried it again and it still prompt me to create an account with them. To do that, I'd have to give them some personal information.
