Hello Darcy Rylander!
Thank you for your following response:
“I also completed the survey and was sent the gift code via email. However it was invalid! I believe in the value of surveys and would have answered without the incentive, however, if they are going to offer they should stand behind it”.
Darcy, you should follow up with a reply to the sender of your gift card as well as IDEA with the outcome of your survey. I’m sure it can be resolved.
Second Follow Up:
I received the following email from www.foodminds.com:

Thanks for all the responses and feedback on this question.
After I took the survey on January 4th, I received the following email:
“Thank you for your time. Unfortunately, the maximum number of responses has been met”.
Fully aware that I must not have been one of the first 260 qualified respondents who completed the survey that didn’t receive a $20 iTunes gift card, I feel that this should have been omitted from the introduction to the survey and surveys.quester.com should have been prepared for the maximum number of respondents with a new introduction to their survey.
I also feel the title to the survey was misleading: “Share Your Nutrition Knowledge”, since the survey was primarily based on protein sources, value, consumption etc. The survey should have been titled: “Share Your Nutrition Knowledge about whey protein”.
Nevertheless, Im sure the National Dairy Council is seeking insight from the public and health professionals for undisclosed purposes.
