Thread Details

I'm fuming right now!! I completed a pretty lengthy screener through USA Talk Now, and received confirmation that I was in the study through ITRACKS. Hadn't received login info so I called and was told that I didn't make the cut. Total bullcrap!! Don't tell me I was accepted into the study then!! GRRRRRR!!!

That is what they seem to be doing now is selecting participants for certain studies with them.

Do you happen to recall what study this was for?

What study was it for? Linda doesn't seem to call anymore, but they send the confirmation e-mail a day before the study starts. I have one through them starting Friday or Monday cant recall on Pennsylvania Voters. Just did a 60 minute live chat with them today.

I qualified for a study with them too, that was supposed to start tomorrow. It was on Sports Energy Users. Still hasn't gotten an email from them.

I think that one was for today: I just deleted the original email. I mistakenly qualified for this one: mistakenly as I didn't use any of those products, and was told at the end that I qualified---???? Anyway, I think that their invitational screeners are too vague and overly generous w/ their acceptances. I guess that the general rule-of-thumb now is that if you don't receive your logins by the day before---don't hold your breathe!

Yes that study was yesterday as I had received the login instructions on Monday I believe.

I guess they overbook these studies, I was also qualified for the sports drinks and didn't get the login instructions, but I just finished another with them so I guess that's why. That's the life in survey world, we can't count until receive the ultimate confirmation we are in, others and better ones will come eventually Wink

I totally agree with you. Nothing is ever written in stone until we get that final confirmation.

I can attest to this fact too. Although I completed one of their studies, I recall another one I qualified before this one and even got the "can we count on your participation, etc" and never ended up hearing back from them with login instructions.

With that being said, it is not an instant guarantee any longer even if you qualify like in the past.

I have so learned not to count my chickens. I think this has happened to all of us one time or another.
