    Prolific Academic - New Survey Alerts July 2017 14th Jul 17 at 3:15 PM
    So after the old thread disappearing, this seems to be the new thread for discussion relating to prolific academy.

    Standard rules please. No abusive posts, no flaming. Lets just make some money, and have some fun.

    No I don't think so unfortunately Smodlet, I think I only get any benefit if anyone new to circle signs up. Still happy to help you lot get a little boost though

    I seem to detect a law of diminishing returns, here... Still, free money is always good, right? Speaking of, where's our flipping £2 bonus from Alex Fraser?

    I propose that, if we don't receive it by Saturday, when his/her survey will hit the 22 day mark, we all ask for payment and, if it does not materialise, complain to PA. Anyone second this?

    Not exactly Prolific related but for those signed up to Circle they have a competition with guaranteed cash prize, I won a whole £1.14! Click on the link to see what you get.

    Edit: removed link as it might be classed as a referral, but if you want to pm me for it I'll send it to you.

    When you read the briefing notes at the beginning of the Social Behaviour study, it actually says the reward will be £1.25 (not 94p). I know it's a small point over which to grumble, but I have queried it with PA.

    It was for an American university, so possibly a typo and it should of said $1.25 which happens to be around 94p depending on the exchange rate used.

    I haven't found any cons myself, it works in the same way as paypal in regard to getting money to your bank account without having the fees that are now charged for paypal. You can't use it to pay for online purchases though in the same way that you can with paypal.

    The only con, setting aside my legendary haplessness with technology which I'm pretty sure is not catching, is that once you enter the Circle, you can never leave... Until they start charging fees and another free one pops up. If you do decide to go ahead, please use someone's link as you and they both get £5, innit? Hint, hint.

    Haha, I know you had issues with them at the start, Smodlet!
    So you can transfer £25 to anyone, and that's how you both get the £5?
