    Has anyone gone onto tick!!!!!!!! since yesterday and noticed it has become some sort of weird business survey site?

    I found a hidden away old facebook page for it and some users have dug up some T&C's from the old site. Apparently they had hidden away in the T&Cs that they were closing the site and all points become void 1 January 2016. It's on a post on the side here https://www.facebook.com/Tickboxnet-192313874118225/?fref=ts

    I'm quite shocked really. There was no email newsletter or announcement on the homepage, so they really didn't give people enough warning to spend their points. I wonder if anyone will complain. Isn't their an authority that oversees market research? I forget their name.

    Sorry if this is a duplicate, I scanned a few sub forums but couldn't find mention of it. Mind you the word 'tickbox' could apply to so many things it's hard to search for!

    Apparently the survey site in question isn't allowed to be named? I didn't know about this but it seems to have been filtered. I do apologise.

    Thank you sarah. Is it not recommended we use the site or something? I don't want to get my amazon account blocked or hacked, if you know something we don't!?!

    No idea why its been deleted to be honest.

    With a lot of people losing their rights to be able to write reviews for products on the Amazon website, maybe thats why? Thats only my guess though.

    Google on 'Amazon Review sites' and you get lots of possibilities.

    I wasn't sure whether to start a thread or not, so hopefully it's ok to post on this one. Apologies if this has been asked before, I searched but didn't find anything!

    I've noticed a lot of foundation sample freebies mentioned on here and other sites, where you go to the brand's counter in a department store etc and ask for one. I would like some samples, but I've never wanted to go up to the counters to ask! I'm quite shy and would be a bit awkward saying no if the sales assistant was pushy and tried to talk me into buying something.

    I just wondered if anyone here had went to counters to ask for samples and how was the experience? :)
