I’ve said in the past that I love taking surveys. I have been with a program called Media Insiders Panel for about 6 months now. This program is a little different from most. All I have had to do is install the MI app on my Android smartphone. I’ve taken one 5 minute survey for leaving the app on my phone and I’ve earned $5 every month. Here’s how it works:
” Panel participants download a small mobile application (called “MI Mobile”) onto their Android™ or iOS-based (iPhone®, iPad®, and iPod touch®) smartphone, tablet or Kindle Fire. This app simply measures the activities that you conduct via your device, such as sharing, viewing, clicking, chatting, downloading and more.
Our panelists are also asked to sync with us on Facebook and/or Twitter, and may be asked to accept a browser cookie on their PC so that we can understand how consumers use social media as a part of their everyday lives. From time to time, we also ask our panelists to share their opinions with us by completing periodic e-mail surveys.
By aggregating this data with other panelists from across the U.S., we can provide accurate insights about how media is used, viewed and shared. At no time is a panelist’s personally identifiable information ever shared or released publicly, nor will we ever interact with you via social media. “
That’s pretty simple for $5 dollars a month. They’ve missed one payment because I changed my email address. I emailed them and by the 1st of the next month, I was paid in full. I know it’s not a lot of money, but essentially it’s free! It’s how I pay for my Starbucks. I love a coffee-free Vanilla Bean Frappucino and butter croissant (my guilty pleasure).
In the spirit of doing my fellow bloggers a favor (I don’t get any bonus for telling you about this program), and building up my blog, I’m also giving away $15. It comes on an electronic Tango gift card which you exchange for cash, Amazon money, Facebook credits, a Pottery Barn gift card and more!
