I got this check about 1 year ago from Synovate. By taking surveys, you can earn points which are then redeemable for cash. A proof that this survey site truly works is the attached check. You might not be impressed by the figures but you can get higher increments in the long run. They send good amount of survey invites and it's a win-win even if you don't qualify to proceed with the survey. You still get to have 50 points just by doing the pre-qualifying questions which are redeemable for cash. So your not really wasting your time with this one.
