So a little while ago, I received an email from Goodreads asking to participate in a survey. If they liked my answers and decided to choose me for a test, then I would get an Amazon gift card for $25. I said, “Why not?” And I filled it out. Took forever, but I did it. (It wanted me to list all the URLs and names of all the groups I am a member of on GR!)
A couple days later, I received an email from a Mr. Nguyen, saying that I was invited to participate in the test. The catch? I had to be on a Desktop computer with a microphone. I was so bummed: I use my iPad and iPhone for every single thing. I went up to my mom’s computer (she works from home, so we have two) and realized I didn’t have a microphone.
Then I had a brilliant idea.
My mom uses a headset to talk to people at work. So I plugged the headset in and loaded the software. I honestly didn’t think it would work. But the test asked me to speak, and the minute I started to it said I passed the assessment. I had the equipment. I signed in and went to work. After talking about several Goodreads features concerning groups, it said I was done.
I didn’t get an email, so I thought I screwed up somehow. I was bummed, but at least I tried.
Then I got this email:
Happy Friday! Thank you so much for completing the test for Goodreads. We just wrapped up our study today and have requested that you be emailed the $25 Amazon gift card. Apologies in advance for the slowness of the account department to approve these things, but you should receive the gift card via email in the next two weeks (by 8/19/2016).
In the meantime, let me know if you have any questions whatsoever.
Whoop whoop! ::does a happy dance::
Did anyone else get this amazing offer? I love Goodreads so much!
