Just had a letter today about an "important study" has anyone on here also received one?


I'm a bit confused as there is an £25 e-voucher that enclosed but haven't helped them as of yet.
If I do the study, will I get another one so £50 in total?
Thought I'd ask on here before trying to contact them.

    I received £10 voucher prior to doing a 15 minute telephone survey. I then received two further vouchers adding up to £50 in total. Must have been the easiest £50 (tax free) I've ever earned  :)

    I’ve done an ONS survey before and got £24 voucher I think 4 times? I don’t think I got one before hand but they did send me a canvas bag before I did it as a thank you/bribe. It worked!

     I did monthly covid tests until recently for research with the ONS and was emailed a 25 voucher each time after I submitted my results and answered a questionnaire

    Are these studies invite only? I've looked on the site and can't see anywhere to join.

    I decided to take part and it didn't have anything to do with the vouchers although every bit helps.

     There is still ongoing research. I do monthly swabs and a questionnaire but no vouchers offered. They probably ran out of money but me and my 13yr old are still taking part.

    I don't think it's a Covid one.
    Will let you know what's about if I get a call.
