Got kicked out of the survey about travel agents (bastion?) a couple of days ago when 47% complete. Seems the survey didn't like me selecting too many reasons for never using a travel agent, even though they were all valid reasons IMHO...

Apart from that I like Red Planet because the earn rates are better and they don't generally geoblock your participation when out of AU, unlike e-rewards and opinion checkin.

I have milestones I want to get to in terms of QF points relating to the cost of classic reward seats. Getting points from surveys helps me progress towards those milestones as does other QF points earning activity. I like getting past the next thousand points etc.

I did have more than enough for "x" classic reward seats but then QF devalued the program recently so now I'm trying to build up to having enough points for "x" classic reward seats again and getting close.

After finally getting my wife back (she's been on holidays in UK for 2.5 weeks), I caan stop concentrating on looking after the kids and do some more surveys:

Project Cumulus - about business payroll, in particular Single Touch Payroll (STP). 15 mins and 150 points. Qualified and was bang on 15 mins
Project Myriad - about Xmas shopping. Qualified - meant to be 5 mins and 50 points, but took longer than that.
Project Crossroads - answered some qualitative questions and screened out, so no idea what it was about. "Unfortunately we have now filled our target groups for this particular survey. "easy 10 points for 2 mins work.
Project Pines, Project Evoke, Talon Tracker and Project Wizard - got emails but none were still in my list when I signed in.
Project Priorities - about frequent (flyer/buyer) programs, online & direct shopping and life in general. Beauty, easy 150 points for 15 mins work.
Glow Tracker - Qualified and about online shopping. A bit of a chore, 20 mins and 200 points

565 points. Nice little haul whilst having lunch

Screened out (without making it to the screening questions) for projects *priorities, condition (closed) and *palette. Anything that goes through *router.cint.com appears to hit the geoblock, but consolation prize is usually 15 points for a single click.

Cheers skip.

Screened out of Project Priorities quite early. 15 points for a minute or two.

Got emails yesterday for Project Salute (15 mins, 150 points) & Project Catch (10 mins, 100 points)

Logged in to see Project Jockey and Catch surveys sitting there. Haven't got the email yet for Jockey, I'm sure it's coming.Salute must have filled and/or they pulled it.

Project Catch was about recreational fishing (Dept of Agriculture & Fisheries). I got in too late as they had an overwhelming response. Still, 15 points for 5 questions in 2 mins.

Opened Project Jockey to get a screen: "Thank you very much for your willingness to take part in the survey. Unfortunately this survey has now closed. " WHATT??

Project Meridio (10 minutes, 100 points) was about taxi, rideshare and limousine usage. Easy to do.

I just got the same response for Clear Tracker.
Clear Tracker sat in 'My Surveys' even though I was told it was closed. So I tried again today and found I could at least get to the screening questions. Must be about contact lenses as I was screened out when I said 'no' to having ever bought them.

Project Buttress was a PITA to do - I was 75% through and it gave me an error and said I didn't qualify and that I get 15 points. Can someone remind me who I email about this please?

Just got two emails with offers - log into account and of course, there are 4 surveys waiting, so they are behind on sending out their emails.

Project Maverick - 150 points and 15 mins, about travel arrangements and corporate travel spend - I obviously didn't tick the correct box, so they threw me a bone (15 points for 1 min work)
Project Emerald - 150 points and 15 mins, about travelling habits, destinations and frequency. Included ads on Destination Qld. It took me 28 minutes
Cheers Tracker - about beverages. Looong one again. 250 points but took 40 mins (probably because I like a beer on a hot day!)

Still got Project Buttress to do, if it hasn't timed out

I completed Project Culture for 100 pts. Apologies, I have totally forgotten what it was about, clearly my memory is declining!
Project Trotting 200 pts regarding leisure and business accommodation options.
