I was just going to delete this email from PayPal but just happened to read it.

The link was unique to me but it seemed fairly generic and not based on anything. I do not have a business and just use PayPal as a normal person. The subject line is "Share your feedback" and reads as follows:

We'd love to hear from you.

It was from invite@mail.paypal-survey.com, made it past my Gmail filter, and did not ask for any personal info. Just some random questions about my companies payment methods etc..

And when I click on the link again, it says I already took the survey. So it's a fairly elaborate phishing scam for so little gain on their end.

My email was from invite@mail.paypal-survey.com, did not ask any personal info, rather generic. I never received the gift card, but i just (today) called paypal asking what the status of the gift card was. The rep put me on hold forever and then issued a $5 credit to my account.
