    Has anyone ever completed a survey from "paradigmsample?"

    It seems like I start out with them, answer a few questions, then get bounced around to other survey companies, and never completing anything.

    I noticed this a lot in Swagbucks too.

    I'll sort through my notes

    BYW - I did encounter that weird survey that had the note about clicking the button would terminate the survey. It had all the programming stuff (what browser you were using, and the data as it was being collected). Really weird.

    I got it again yesterday too. This time at Inbox Dollars. Twenty minute survey wasted.

    That's another site I'm giving up on. I need 3 cents to cash out with them and I'm done. Takes about a year to get $30. lol


    ETA: Another problem I'm having (MP) is when I click on "Complete a Watch Activity". Everthing runs as normal, but I don't get credit for it the first time. I have to watch again to get it checked off my Daily 5 list. It's been doing that for about 2 weeks.

    Does that happen to anyone else?

    I always have to click the 'Next Page' button for the last video, and it says I earned the points (I do this on my desktop computer, with multiple tabs). Sometimes it says that the activity is not available, then changes to the 'earned points' message. Then I go back to the 'Watch' tab (other screen) and refresh to make sure it has been added to my total.

    I'm not going to set up the 7-Day Challenge until I get my coupon issue resolved. I don't want to stress out about it, and I hate to keep scanning and sending help tickets.

    So, I just submitted a Help Ticket for purchasing four items (In-Store Deals) for a total of 511 points. After scanning and uploading the receipt, of course I got the error message that it couldn't be verified. The good news is that I did get a confirmation email that my ticket was received.

    But what a headache it was to submit it! I did take a screenshot of the items as they appeared in my list at MyPoints, as well as a screen shot of the error message. Initially I selected 'In-Store Deals' but that turned out to be a mistake - it's not the same as purchasing from your list; instead, it's for those 'special' deals, like purchasing Armor-All from Walmart, etc.

    Then I tried 'Shop" - but no, that was for reporting purchases for points per dollar through vendors. Which merchant? Has it been 30 days since your purchase was made? Those kind of questions. Time to start over.

    Finally settled on 'Deals' which seemed to allow me to submit all the information (I hope!) to support my claim. This is also the topic that asked for a screen shot and date of completion. I filled out this screen, attached scans of the receipt (two files) and two screenshots.

    Keeping my fingers crossed that I get all the points!

    I try to buy my items on seperate receipts, just for that reason! I dont think their computer picks up on everything purchased.

    They really need a Help Ticket option just for receipts, and In-Store Deal receipts. I hate jumping through hoops like you did. I think last time I sent one, I just did ''General Inquiries". It's been about 4 days waiting though, so I'm not sure that was the right choice. lol

    Something seems to be different between mine and yours. When I click on Complete a Watch Activity, the page that comes up is the Watch activities from their FB page. (The post from April 6, with pic of JLo, Kevin Bacon, etc....). This started coming up about 2 weeks ago, which is about when I started having to watch the first one, twice. These are really easy....10 of them that average around 30 seconds each. Other than having to watch twice, I haven't had any problems with these.

    I'm not going to do coupons at all for this reason. Plus, my printer/desktop still isn't working. I think one coupon print is required, so I'll just have my mom print one for herself.

    Sitting here at 1:31 a.m., trying to get a survey done to complete my Daily 5, and refreshed the screen - and got the 'Congratulations' pop-up message that I met my Daily Goal. Apparently someone reviewed my Help Ticket, and I received credit for the four items I bought (511 points)! Made my night - but I still want to do that survey, lol.

    It's odd that it seems someone works on a Sunday night around 11pm, but no one is there during normal hours on weekends. I'm still waiting to hear about help tickets from the 24th of Aug.

    I wonder how much is computerized, and just automatically approves help tickets regardless of the issue?

    When I sent my scanned receipt, I underlined each of the items. I received a separate email for each item (subject: Points Awarded) and in the message: "Good news! We were able to validate your offer (#) Points will be added to your account shortly." with a stock graphic of the product. Then another email - requesting a rating. So far so good.
