    I got a message back from TNS about the 5 Love2Shop vouchers for doing the Unaddressed Mail Survey - apparently they are now sent out 7 weeks from the start date of your stint on the UM survey! I started one on 30th July so, by my reckoning, they will not send out my voucher until next week. That is definitely longer than it used to be before they changed to the new website
    2018 Wins: 160 Boots, 267 Vouchers, 15 Survey Credit, 120 Cash, 5 Scratchcards, DVD Player, 2 Beanie Hats, 8 T-Shirts, 10 Books, Silver Necklace/Earrings, Fitnesswear, Toiletries/Perfume/Skincare, Costume Jewellery, Chocolate, Mars Milk, Beer, Rum

    Going Live
    This is my first week of going live, I've had smarts sent to me and I have to send my first one out later this week, it's to someone fairly near me and I have an urge to slip a piece of paper in saying Hi you're my first 'live one'.


    I obviously don't get out much!!!!!

    Since the website changed to newer one, I have not had any correctly delivered survey invitations. I used to get one about every month!

    I'm lucky I generally get in despite not being up at 1 am, and I'm not staying up on the off chance of an invite.

    I don't see the logic of inviting people at 1 am in the UK. They really need to change that.

    Up and running again...

    While I'm here... the Smart Stock option now has a section labelled "On the Way to You" - I've not seen any appear here yet - have you lot? Is it "On the way from Swan Lane" or "On the way from another panellist" I wonder?

    Update not improved anything. What clown thought that it would idea to have white writing on a light blue background? On the Receiver Data Entry page I am sure I have clicked cancel instead of submit a few times, maybe that is why I have a so many smarts that are not registered to me.

    I've had notifications 3 times that some are on the way - usually they turn up the following day.

    Just logged on and got a correctly delivered invite. Late afternoon. Pleasant surprise that it's still there as I'd completely overlooked the 1am email.

    Hey thank you! I too was disappointed that I seemed to have missed out even though i responded at 8am. Just logged on again after reading your email and find that my invitation popped up too!
