Yesterday, my husband and son went to the grocery store to buy a few groceries. When they came home, my son ran upstairs and showed me two nice crisp dollar bills. “Somebody gave me these,” he said excitedly. I asked who, and he just replied, “A lady.”
That sparked my curiousity, so I quickly asked my husband where the money came from. Sometimes strangers have offered to buy my son a candy bar or something, but no one has ever given him money.
It turns out that one of the local banks was conducting a survey on banking and were targeting people outside of the grocery store. For a few minutes of your time, they were giving out $2.00.
This is the first time that something has happened like that to us. I’m aware of online surveys – but not paid surveys on the street.
Anyone else have an experience like this for survey participation? How much were you paid?
