I bailed on the survey site once it started asking for my kids' birth dates. Really?!?

Hmm, any reason I can't give "creative" answers?

If you plan to keep doing the surveys, they do check for consistent answers in the demographic section. For kids, I'd probably do the first day of the correct month and correct year in the profile- close enough to any surveys asking about what your 9 year old thinks of lunch kits, but at the point it wouldn't be overly personal data.

This is the same group that runs the IHG rewards survey program. After the initial bonus it is NOT worth your time. Too many bait and switch come-ons and too many surveys for which you are not eligible after a few questions. And the amount of points/miles gets lower as time goes along.

I'm starting to get really annoyed with these surveys. While I do love Alaska miles, it's just not worth 20 minutes for a measly 25 miles.

Hey, that's 1 CPM*

Finally signed up for this- bought a discounted groupon, and met up with some friends for a late lunch. Guess I gotta find an idine place to visit now, and do the survey thing

*cent per minute

I don't go for any surveys where the time is high and points are low.

My system now is just put in a wrong age to get kicked out right a way, pocket the 5 points, keep doing it til they give me the 18 pt Pop rewards survey which is breeze. You're allowed up to 5 fails a day.

Basically, gotten it down to 18 + 5(5) = 43 miles in about 10 minutes time or less. Yes, typically do while on the Can. If you can put up with that, that's around 12,000-15,000 miles a year.

That was my thought as well. Well except i just got 2 in a row for 25 points for 4 minutes watching commercials. Not bad. Actual timing on one was 2 min. Some are just stupid with 30 min to earn 25 points
