And yes as I said the points are instantly awarded after each survey. I saw one yesterday that had a 1,900 point award (I didn't qualify for it though) 


Yep. Just got two 3-pointers.

Re: American Express Member Opinions

@wasCB14 thank you for telling me about this. You saved me $300 for a 600 MR points that if I were to spend to get that anyway. I'm going to do these everyday or so, its worth the time and money. I wish I could buy you a beer lol.

Re: American Express Member Opinions

What a pain. Spent 30 mins just trying to qualify for a survey. Was worth it in the end for the free 1000 MRs

Well that's a win Smiley Wink

 

At least they don't penalize people for trying too many times, take away 3 MR. Yet Smiley Happy

So they gave you 1000 when they couldn't find any you were eligible for? Or you eventually found one that gave 1000 MRs? If the latter, how long did the survey take?

 

One could probably spend 15-20 minutes trying to qualify for a 5 minute survey that would actually take 15. 5 can become 30 or 35 so easily.

You get 550 for completing your first survey. I ended up doing two. The surveys took much longer than they claimed. The last one was annoying because there was no progress bar and I was praying it would just end already.

Re: American Express Member Opinions

As of earlier today my usually reliable gmail account has lost the ability to identify truly personal emails. It's ignoring my instructions to silently move these emails to Promotions.

 

So now my phone is buzzing every few hours with survey ads. Ugh.

The first few I did were fine.   I just got one today and now it's much more like the AmericanAirlines one I gave up on, 5 minutes in and they offer a new survey as you don't fit the demographic.
