In May and June I wrote about the opportunity to get up to $250 for simple surveys on your hotel stays. I know it sounded too good to be true, but I personally vouched for the company because I knew the CO – he is the father of my best friend growing up.

TPG readers submitted about 500 surveys, which means collectively you will get paid nearly $50,000!

Some of you have been reaching out lately that you haven’t received payment or heard from LRA. Here’s the deal: they aren’t the most responsive with emails, but they are sending out payments (sorry if it’s a little past the one month timeframe they originally agreed on). I know for a fact they sent a bunch out recently and more will be going out July 22 (this Friday). If you don’t get a check within the next two weeks and you are concerned about it – don’t freak out, just email me and I’ll handle it.

This was a new experiment for me – I generally don’t “pimp” my readership out, but this seemed like a very mutually beneficial opportunity. If you participated, please feel free to comment below on your thoughts and whether you’d do it again if given the opportunity.
