to be fed up of being asked to complete yet another product survey.

I seem to be inundated with requests for these. I don't mind the basic feed back of Ebay, etc. but today I was asked to spare 15 minutes to fill in a series of inane questions about my recent mobile phone purchase. The questions were so waffly I gave up. Surely the fact that I've stayed with that provider (for donkey's years) shows that I am fine with it, otherwise I would complain!

That would be too simple rockgran I have given up unless one really interests me.

Most of us I assume check out reviews of products before we buy, so I do feel obliged to be obliging at times, but 15 minutes is a bit of a cheek!

Completing surveys are not compulsory, so why be fed up just ignore the survey if you don’t want to complete

I know they are not compulsory, Awsomegranny, but like Riverwalk I do like to check out reviews and feel I should made an effort sometimes.

They should pay people for their time. Cheek!

I've filled in a few for M and S, doesn't seem to help them realise what lots of people think, namely that a lot of their clothes are dowdy. Given up doing them now!

Holland and Barrett send a survey every time you go in. We now just write. Went in , Bought something , came out .

BB On the occasions I complete one I take it too seriously, I think your be flippant idea is great and will be duly adopted by your truly!

I quite like filling them in. You can have a bit of fun with them if you're a bit imaginative grin

Reviews, or surveys?

There is a difference, I try to make time to do Amazon reviews, partly because I do take note of the reviews on products that I am considering!

So, no reviews, makes it harder to compare.

(Hope that makes sense?)
