Kobo, make it worth my time!😊

I’ve received 2 emails now, asking me to do an online survey. It wouldn’t take long, they say. No incentive whatsoever to do it, however.

Well, Kobo, if you offered a discount coupon for doing the survey, I would happily do it. My time is worth something. Please show some respect and appreciation for it. 😊

Since when do companies offer discounts in exchange for filling a survey? A genuine question, no sarcasm.

EDIT: Well, besides the Google Rewards program, but that's a bit different

So giving your opinions so Kobo can make things better for you is not worth your time?

I’ve been paid for doing surveys, ranging from $20-$30.

Specific company surveys or through a survey company?

I used to get paid for surveys but never from a specific company.

It was a survey company, related to a specific industry.

I have had companies offer Amazon gift cards for doing surveys. I think one of our utilities or something did that once.

Amazon gift cards are as good as cash to me, so...

A lot of companies will offer to put your name in a draw for a monthly prize from that company if you complete a survey.

The possibility of winning a free KA1 or similar prize just might tempt a few people to give up a couple minutes of their time.

I did the first of the two surveys; it was ridiculously long, and I was frankly pissed off by the end of it.

Most surveys do sweepstakes or coupons or some kind of compensation. Amazon and Kobo doesn't think it's necessary. Although I have taken surveys related to both through a survey company and gotten a small amount. Around 50 cents usually. Direct surveys never got anything but more surveys.
