new eReward survey for hotel- $175 if accepted

Holy smokes. I just got targeted for a survey on hotels that would give me $175 if I was able to fully complete it. I guess I answered the qualification questions wrong as I only got a weak $1 out of it. Best of luck to those that received it!

Hint: the survey is seeking frequent business travelers to luxury (brand) hotels

I recently was part of a targeted eRewards offer for participating in a home improvement bulletin board. Basically I had to look at and evaluate a website - answering a series of question and providing suggestions, twice a day, for four days. It probably took me 15 minutes avg / time * 2 times / day * 4 days.... so about 2 hours for $50 in credits.

I am not sure if that would be proportional to the $175 credit. If so, one might expect 6-8 hours of time.

Maybe overnight? (Since it's survey on hotels.)

I got a $200 survey about buying a new car a few weeks ago--targeted. I missed the email prompts for the 4th of 5 survey and only qualified for $60. A week later I got a check in the mail for $60 in real money--not erewards.

Each survey I took was identical to the last and only took about 10 minutes. Personally I did not see how those questions (or my answers) would have been valuable to anyone--they were very vague.

I just (in the last week) completed a survey about hrmmm, hah I can't remember now, but I got $35 out of it. It took about 40 minutes.

I was targetted for one a few months ago for $75 that would take 1.5 hours and if I completed that I would be asked to complete a phone interview that would last from 1-2 hours for an additional $150. Something happened when I clicked on the 1st link to the $75 survey and my browser closed. I tried accessing it again and it said I had already attempted it, so I didn't even get the $1 for the non-complete survey they had offerred. I never bothered to contact eRewards to see if I could try to complete it.

It does seem the last few surveys I have recv'd have been a bit higher paying then normal. Granted not like it was a year or so ago ($15 for 10 min) but better then $4 for 40 minutes.

OK--my wife got the $175 hotel survey yesterday.

First question. Are you

A) Male
B) Female

Being my wife she chose B.

That was the end of the survey.

I got the hotel survey for $175 last week.

I am female.

I answered Four Seasons and bingo! Winner. The $175 posted immediately and I cashed in $50 of it for Hilton points.
