Nielson Ratings...

Sent me $5 cash!

The letter says they sent me $5 in advance for filling out the enclosed questionaire... Coolio... If you get one of these, don't throw it away:

That's why it's been sitting on my end table for a week... I almost threw it away, but something told me to open it... I'm totally completing the questionaire as best I can... Hopefully they'll send me more money... or maybe buy me cable!

Had Nielson rating box hooked to my TV's for few years. Every program watched got credit for 75000 viewers in Bay Area.
Used to tape programs to make sure they got credit for my Nielson rating points

Do they pay for your cable if you have one of their boxes?

Neilson hooked all TV's and VCR's to mini computer with modem. Every night computer downloaded information to Neilson.
Every quarter Neilson sent you check for $100, which didnot pay cable bill.
Once year Neilson would come out and check out system.
After five years Neilson comes out removes equipment.

my wife did some product testing for cash. she was paid $50 to try out 3 brands of diapers. once you get on the list, you get calls each week to test new products for cash. i forget how she got started on it.
