Okay, I was debating about posting this offer here as technically I am not buying anything directly per se. However, I have used examples on how I was able to get things like a free burger by simply signing up for an e-mail list. So in theory, this offer kind of uses the same type of effort for the reward. Except with this reward I could pretty much buy anything I want at Amazon.
In this case, a local university here called UBC was holding studies where they were looking for people who were willing to participate in them. For this one, I did everything at home and simply looked at a few material while answering some questions. In return they gave me this twenty dollar Amazon.ca gift card for free.
You can often find plenty of schools and organizations who conduct these kinds of studies frequently too. I was actually interested in helping out in general too, so this gift card was just a bonus. If you were someone on a tight one dollar budget this must feel like you won a lottery of some sort in some way. It’s a way for you to “cheat” and go “over budget” by finding ways to make more money.
