Anyone else getting these big white and Blue envelopes in the mail? doesn't even have a name on it..Just tv research home and your address on it?


I almost threw it away...Looked like junk as usual...But something told me to take it up and look at it later...about 2 hrs after I threw it on the counter I walked by and spotted it again...I picked it up to throw it away and my 6 year old said let me open it...I said it is just junk mail honey...a waste of paper and postage....But I let her open it...Do you know what fell out with the survey they wanted me to fill out and send back(and only 1 page at that??)  5 brand new $1 bills...... bigeyes.gif    


So like I might want to open up that junk mail and just scan the insides before you toss it...I know I will from now on....

Wow, I have never heard of this- I am shocked that a mass-mailer (?) would be putting cash in their envelopes. I would imagine a LOT of money is being thrown away.

Yes we got this a few months ago and participated and got another $5 cash.  Then they never sent us another one.  I don't think we watch enough TV and when we do it's usually not prime time but re-runs!  It's a legit company that I've seen bloggers talk about.

Giving Love serves as a wonderful reminder that we already have an abundance of Love within, "it is in giving that we receive."

Yes, and if you actually do their surveys, they also send you $30.

My daughter participated in a study at the peds office and will receive calls- it's about social media use and teens. They'll send her a $20 gift card every time she answers a few questions. My MIL got $50 for answering questions after Hurricane Katrina- they called her every three months. She ended up making $150.
