Once again spent quite some time doing surveys and getting 70-95% through them, only to end up with 5 points each (or nothing)

I find every time I do a survey without fail I get called up by someone in India ?? so I stopped bothering a long time ago.

I know how you feel.. Happens all the time.
When i do surveys, i just put in different information to what i actually am. I seem to get through a lot more surveys that way. Most surveys will want different things, so i just say i do

I was able to complete a few surveys last night, which i suprised i didn't get screened out. But i usually get screened out so much and only recieving 5 points is abit low to recieve. Especially when you get above 60% or 70% of the way through the survey!
You can earn 10 points a day, on the daily click and with the email. Which worked out to be 3650 points after 12 months, if you do this everyday.
Atleast add 1 point per comp you enter or something. And the guessing game, have played that game for way over a year and still yet to win, but maybe i will get licky eventually.
To sum up everything. Their needs to be more ways for earning points imo.

In my opinion surveys are a waste of time. I've won the guessing game once and never received payment. I don't bother anymore.

@admin This site is good, but i do have a few suggestions/recommendations.
Maybe add 1 compbux for every comp you enter(not including viewing the comp)
Random member draw for members, say 250-500 compbux weekly or monthly. Or even lower compbux value to your choosing.
Facebook, Twitter and Instagram comps as well(i follow you on all 3)for a chance at winning extra compbux or gift cards.
With surveys, if you get passed a certain % and then you aren't eligible. Which has happened a few times, of spending 5-10 minutes, then be told you are not eligible. You only recieve 5 compbux. I dislike the fact you can spend so much time on 1 survey then be told your not eligible when you get say 80% of the way through it, and still only recieve only 5 compbux. Maybe a better system of determining, if you get a certain way through it and are no longer eligible. You should recieve more then 5 compbux. I would suggest, if possible. A percentage of what the inital survey combux was for the survey. Survey was 75 combux. Get 70% through it and become eligible. Get 40 compbux. Or something similar.
That is all i can think of, that would be a welcoming edition to earning that extra compbux :)

I just recieved an sms message telling me i have won a Toyota Klugger or $50,000 cash and to click on the included link to claim. When I click on the link it takes me to a page that asks me to phone a 1900 number to collect. Problem i have is my Telco blocks all 1900 phone calls. What should i do about contacting the promotor unless it us a hoax.

Looks like it might be a money making scam, any other details on the page?, calling a 1900 number will charge you a fee (here is a extract from the net). A legit company would call or email you for such a large prize I'm sure! .....

" A 1900 or 1902 number has a 'tariff' attached and you will be charged the amount set for this service. These tariffs can be 'timed' (per minute), or they can be 'fixed' (per call). The format for these numbers will be 1900 XXX XXX or 19 XX XX.

We don't set the costs for calling these numbers, but rather the owner or provider of these numbers does and on-passes these costs.

Before you call a 1900 or 1902 number, make sure that you know how much it will cost you to call that number. This cost of the call must be stated wherever 1902 or 1900 is shown. If you notice a charge for a 1900 or 1902 number on your bill and you haven't made a call to this number, call us on 131 999 to help you. "

Best of luck to you :)

Thanx everyone this is as i thought. I agree with you fourleaf i should have recieved a call or email for such a good prize. Shame on the scammers!

I

NEVER click any links given to you via your mobile phone, or even in emails, without checking into it first. A legitimate message should include all information about what it is that you won, and they should call and/or email you with full details about who they are and what you can do to contact them via phone and/or email to claim your prize. There are so many scams right now that it is easy to be hoodwinked. Please be careful. You may have opened yourself up to hacking and viruses.

So I turned on the PC ordered the paper on this remove plagiarism online https://www.unplagiarizer.com/ website. Highly recommend. The writer has followed my specific instructions and was able to provide the paper earlier than the deadline. The writer is very communicative and answers all your concerns.

Toluna survey on banking exited after completion of 80% or so and said I did not meet requirements so only 5 points. The screen out mechanism needs review to be made more equitable

The surveys are so frustrating. Just spent 10 minutes answering a heap of questions to be told I was screened out. I was more than 75% through it - how could I be screened out then and not allocated the points?
Then others won't run or are broken. Or suddenly decide halfway through they don't like my device.

Hi on tomorrow.com/au, when you enter a competition it asks a series of about 6 offers/ads, do you have to complete this (i usually press skip to the end) for the entry to go through?

SunnyLife

I just skip to the end. It says I have been accepted and entered, so I take it at face value. Mind you, you should open up a special email account for doing competitions. So far in my "special email" I have about 6,500 in the in box and about 5,000 in the junk box. I merely go through each day and enter a search by "congratulations" or "congrats" to see if I've won anything. Having done competitions now for about 5 years I can cheerfully say I haven't won a brass razoo and the shock of actually winning something will probably cause me to die of a heart attack! :-)

General Chatter

Tip of the week for entering competitions:
Have a break every now and then
Grab some of nature's own vitamin D
Go for a stroll and don't think about comps
Look for some markdowns at your supermarkets
Saving money is cool too!

I'm so dubious about competitions that ask just to sign up with your email and no other details. I guess they just want to bombard you with advertising and newsletters. I never see any winners names or announcements.
The amount of overseas call centres that ring is just ridiculous too.
I guess someone must be winning all these comps as this is the worst year I've ever had at not winning anything. Perhaps more people are doing it now. ??

I've given up doing the surveys. It's simply not worth the time and effort. You fill out a lot of questions and waste time only to find you have been screened out - then it takes a month of Sundays to have the privilege of gaining a pittance.
