    Wharton is garbage. Don't ever do their hits. Avoid at all costs.

    Anyone in on these Brandon Ferrell surveys that pop up every so often in email? We are on round 23, and I honestly cannot remember how long this was supposed to last, and I feel like I should have remembered signing up for something that was going to last for about a year.

    Not complaining, just wondering what it is that I've forgotten. Totally grateful for all the money I've earned from him.

    I generally find Wharton decent but not quite good. They aim for the 10 cents a minute mark and their time estimates are usually higher than it actually takes. They never fall into the "50 cents for a short 20 minute survey" crowd.

    I realized I hadn't done work for them since August. Not that I really forgot, I just never went there. But I'm going to check more often! Especially since I just had a couple of hundred of dollars of vendor bills show up today for my rental. I had no clue they were coming this week and used all the rest of the money I had to pay credit card. Whoops! So I wanna make a big transfer from Prolific soon to help cover.

    Yeah, avoid at all costs. Definitely not worth your time. They suck.

    I'm sorry it's not coming across, but I am being sarcastic. I would like it if people avoided them though, because then I could keep them to myself. I actually have them included.

    On Prolific I have managed maybe 3 or 4 surveys a day each day for the last 34 (!) days. I did go through a quiet phase. But both hubby and I use it and make about £5 a day. Not bad.

    ha. i got a rejection yesterday for the 80 cent rate similarity of words. I emailed right away because I found nothing to show any similarity but did see relationships between the words. Looks like my rejection was overturned.

    Wow, I added up all the Wharton money I've made on random hits over the years and I've made $17.40. I never think of them as bad. They have never rejected and I've never felt like I spent so much time on one of their surveys that it was a complete waste of time. I guess it really depends on the survey, though.
