Default Got my $50 from BackSpin

Some of use got emails saying fill out a survey and get $50. You asked how they would know where to send it to. Well I guess they pick people who have their email on file at Sirius. They never asked me for ANY personal info, and I took the time to do the durvey which was rating a lot of different old school rap songs by the short audio clip they provided. Took about an hour. Today I received a check made out in my name from Pinnacle Advertising for $50. In the memo area it said "BackSpin".

BTW the company that issues the check is a firm used for surveys in the music industry.

So what was the total time it took to receive the check? I did my survey over a course of three days and completed it last night.

What's funny is how I wanted to do these music surveys for cash ebfore, now I see several channels have them made public and you don't get paid to do them. I did the faction and alt nation ones last night. Octane had one too, however, it seems broken. The player with songs that I'm supposed to preview doesn't load any songs, and if you choose to rate the non-existant song being played, it ends the survey.

I accessed the surveys through the channels sites, like sirius.com/octane, etc.

Not to bring up a pretty much dead topic (or.. ok I guess I am..), but you said your check was issued by a company other than Sirius? And you said it took a week (or so) to arrive? I did this survey back on December 7th, finished inside of an hour and have yet to get my check. Unfortunately, I used my Comcast email address so the email I got for this survey was lost due to a recent format. I was going to check and see if there was any kind of contact information on it regarding this.

If it's any consolation, I'm still waiting on my check to arrive as well.

Ethyn - Received my $50 check from 'Pinnacle Media Management' today. You should be expecting it to arrive soon, if it hasn't already.
