I sometimes just click the bottom box to answer "no to all" and this sometimes continues on to an actual survey.
I was wondering if anybody had a successful strategy they use faced with these multi choice initial survey qualifiers for getting through them succesfully?
I'm not sure they are screening questions or just filling up the database for later (and without pay). It's just too often they are not followed by a survey, particularly the one about COVID-19 symptoms.
By the way, is it just me, or the surveys have become longer for less return? Seems to me most of the surveys lately are for 100-200 points, but have length that previously gave 500-600...

Yes, the reward/minute is now insulting. I've even had a few 4 minutes/0 points surveys. ...What the f***?

Hah! I've seen that too! Though of course I've never clicked on it to see what the heck that's about, and at least they've never tried to throw it at me when I complete a survey and just let them choose the next one. It must always be the same thing because it's the only zero points one I've ever seen listed.

Beware of a Survey on Bristol hosted by Survey Monkey. Completed the entire survey, stated congratulations and then instead of awarding me the points directed me to sign up to Survey Monkey site! 😤

I swear some of the questions that are just for seeing if you qualify for any surveys are getting dumber each day. This is today's.

Have you purchased a ____________________ within the past six (6) months?

It is asking me to link my Google Account with my e-rewards account. The problem is the email address that I use with Google does not match the email address that I use with e-rewards. My gmail account isn't officially a gmail account. It is a corporate account, so e-rewards doesn't even count it. Finally, many people do not have a Google account. They just use google.

I got that too, asking to link my google account. I also have survey requires me to input my full name and full address. Some asked for my phone number before I can go any further. I simply deleted all these surveys.

i also completed a really long survey last night. It did not seem too bad at the beginning and it showed I was already 36% in progress, then minutes later, I was back to 16% progress. When I got to 76% completion, the next screen pushed me back to 55% and had very sloooow loading. It was super annoying and took over an hour and I was given about $2.25.

today, there was another long survey that took close to an hour and at the end it gave a blank page after submission. So all these time went down the drain.

what is this ereward? Getting worse and worse.

Same here. Google knows far more about me than I want anyway without deliberately adding more.

I didn't have any 700 ones but there were a number of surveys between 75 and 375 points jammed in my home page for most of last week that just kept going to the complete profile page when clicking on them. They cleared up late Sunday night by the look of it (I'm in the UK)
