I always take the survey on the bottom of the receipt. I always try to wind something. After a took an online survey for CVS, I was asked to participate in a 2-3 part research study. The company basically just wanted to know what I like to shop for, why I buy the items I do, and where I like to buy them. I would be paid for this, so I thought, why not?
The first part of the study consisted of uploading 4 videos to the website. The first, a quick intro video, then 3 others while you shopped. Sure, they asked you to do your videos topless, but whatever. kidding.
The second part was going to a meeting. 8:00-10:00. PM. At night. For those of you who don’t know me, I am a grandma. My bedtime is 8:00. I bucked up for the love of groceries, or lack there of, and went.
We sat around a table and discussed our ideal drug store, and drew pictures with crayons and ate M&Ms. After 2 hours, we were dismissed.
When I went to check out, the lady asked me to stick around for just a second. I had been selected to take part in the third phase of the study. duh. I’m fabulous. They wanted to follow me around with a camera while I shopped. (I’m not sure if CVS allows topless shopping.) The hours were either 8am or 10:30am. I said I had to work. I’m trying to be a responsible adult with a good work ethic.
Anywho, I left with a Visa gift card for $175. Holla!
As for the picture- It just made me die laughing. And it’s the week before Spring Break, and I work at an elementary school. Die laughing or die. Seriously.
