    About a month ago, received by mail a letter from them, 5 crispy, just off the press smell one dollar bills.
    Few days later, answered their call, only because the letter said someone would call. After a short survey,
    was told I would be hearing from them again shortly, and would send me ten dollars.
    lol, can not remember but think we got that to.
    Last night, another call, asking for us to participate in another survey, but the requirements a but different.
    They are to send a small box like thingy, to hook up to tv. Along with 2 monitors for us to wear.
    This has some sort of detector inside that will collect data as to what we watch and listen to. Short story- more money to follow, and $50 bonus at the end, with other possibilities for future cash.
    I had I not known who they were and how long Nielsen had been around, would never agreed to do this. Still, have done some research, a legit process, and they do deliver as promised.
    Anyway hubby not to koser on this, so he may not participate. I figure what the heck, a tad of cash is always nice, and my privacy has been so violated over the years anyway- and for free - I will give this a whirl!
    So, just wondering have any of you ever done this ?

    Three times while I was in California, but not since then. The last I knew, they had a couple of ways that they surveyed people - the box on the television gave them the most accurate information, but they also had people logging what they watched on paper, which has probably since been replaced by email or an online form. I did the journal a couple of times too, but they paid more for the box.

    I have had the box three times, though. It makes you self-conscious about what you watch. I used to leave it on when I went to work because they were re-running Maverick while I was at work so I wanted it to get my vote even though I couldn't actually watch it, and I tried to make sure I didn't watch anything that I didn't like.

    I've had several of the dollar bills in the mail but no box thingy. I waiting with hopes of being a $10k winner that they have. Three years and counting, sigh.
