    From an earlier post
    You lot backing out obviously is having an effect. This week is my last and just received a message asking if I would do another 6 months.

    Guess where my first two items are going and guess the smart code

    Although it is only one week and normal items are listed for a couple of weeks later.

    Well, I'm still not being invited to any of the ad hoc surveys for some reason but after having my fair share of cubes, had my first medium parcel ever to post this week.

    Despite during the survey for ages, I've never had to send or receive one before - in that sense, I seem to have been luckier(?) than others here though missing out on the vouchers.

    So I went to the post office and at the counter they put it through as a small parcel instead! Still first class though so who knows when it will arrive.. I just hope the receiver isn't charged anything.

    On a related note, if you receive an item with an APL on, I always say it's been postmarked as the label includes the date it was printed, and I have never seen one which has been franked. Do others also do this?

    If the parcel is mis-priced by the post office (and it has a Horizon label as opposed to stamps) then I believe it is the post office who is charged the excess postage as opposed to the receiver.

    This was what I was told by a postie a year or so ago when I received a parcel that had been sent as a large letter.

    Had a message today asking if I’m available to log some additional survey items for two weeks in April with a QTL tracker in....? (I’m currently resting from the main panel....) anyone else had this? Been on the panel for 4 years and haven’t heard of it?? What’s involved? Do they send any incentives as part of it?
    I’ve accepted anyway just curious....thanks

    I have just finished doing this.
    No idea if you get anything extra. for doing it.
    It was one letter Monday to Friday for two weeks.
    You complete a piece of paper with the time and reference number, add this and an envelope into the main envelope and post it. Nothing to complete online.

    My post box times have changes to mornings, so I was thinking it was something to do with that, but was sure.

    Just wanted to say thank you for prompting me to check whether I'd received all the LTS vouchers I'm due.... Received the reward for a Feb stint this morning, but realised I'd not received the reward for a Dec / Jan stint. I've messaged TNS this morning to query.
    From reading previous posters' messages, I get the feeling something went awry with sending out rewards late Jan / early Feb.
