    Survey Stashing: MySurvey hints & tips 12th May 09 at 1:03 PM
    Whatís this about? Willing to give your view on the Labour Party, answer questions about your sex life, or test out the latest moisturiser? If so, itís possible to earn £100s a year, without any special skill or talent. Itís all about stashing cash from filling in online surveys or taking part in focus groups.

    The first point of call is read the full Survey Stashing guide.
    Then having found the best survey sites, this discussion is specifically to talk about feedback and tips for the survey site


    MySurvey


    If you want to discuss survey sites in general please go to the Survey Stashing Discussion.

    If youíve got a suggestion/tip

    Simply click reply and add your suggestion, though its worth scanning down first to check it's not been duplicated.

    I do quite a few surveys for them. Can't imagine what hints and tips there are really.

    Just the more you do for them the more you seem to get offered. Have done product testing for them as well.

    They're now called MySurvey not MyTNS.

    The home page is http://uk.mysurvey.com. Rewards are paid in Nectar points. They have recently introduced a "messenger" which, when installed on the computer, gives a signal, audible if you wish, when a survey is available.

    I had a message recently to say that automatic conversion to nectar points would no longer happen after 1st May. The redemption rate is staying the same i.e. 1 mysurvey point = 1 nectar point, but you have to wait until you get to 500 points now, rather than them being converted every week regardless of your balance.

    I have opted out because you're automatically opted in. I just think it's a bit cheeky.

    I just received this email, too - about them tracking what adverts I see online. Seems a bit intrusive to me, and shouldn't be an opt-out thing, I think it should be opt-in.

    If I do opt out, does anyone know, am I opting out JUST of the tracking, or will I stop getting surveys, too?

    I also quite often get invited to a personal routine diary (same layout as consumer pulse) for a week which falls just short of £5 with the additional survey at the end

    Thanks for this. I don't remember getting an email about this. I noticed last week I had 420 points in my account and wondered why they hadn't been converted to Nectar points. Cheeky!

    I did get the email about tracking internet usage and opted out of that pronto! I totally agree - it shouldn't be that you're automatically opted in.

    Same here, although they are always very slow at crediting the points to my account:confused::rolleyes: usually at least twice the stated "couple of weeks".

    Still waiting for them now 4 weeks after the last personal routine survey....

    They've now changed the points for 850 points per £5 capital bonds voucher [stated in the email i received] which also said something about 850 points per £5 amazon voucher, but they're yet to change this on the site. :S

    So pleased I spotted this. I've just had a look at my Nectar statement and notice I haven't had any points from TNS since February this year, though I've been doing reguilar surveys. I don't remember having any e-mail from them so will have to check it out as it was a good way of boosting my Nectar points.

    Sorted!! I finally got into my account and found the info. I also managed to bag myself some extra points by downloading a whatsit to tell me when there was a new survey available plus 10 more for a survey for which I apparently didn't fit the required profile (looks as if I'll have to get myself a couple of kids!) It seems I'm not quite up to the required 500 points for my next injection of Nectar.

    Personnally, I would keep the amazon voucher, as Valued Opinions & lightspeed also do these, then you could quickly build-up a nice amount to by yourself a prezzie at no cost to yourself.
