And that's fine. Even so, people need to back out the cost of balls in calculating how many credits they earn by doing that.
I recently started doing surveys again (for a number of reasons, I hadn't done them for a long time). Between the surveys and the free video credits, I've earned over 10,000 credits in the last 3 weeks.
And here's the thing: I did those activities while I was watching TV or took some time just before going to bed. Any extra time spent on those activities were negligible because I wasn't going to be doing anything else with that time,
Everyone has to do what works for them. For many people, surveys and videos work well because they know exactly what they earn. Additionally, some people (like myself) don't actually enjoy tournaments or the competition. For me, that's not fun.
I was just agreeing with DC in the fact that I also hated doing surveys and the route that I took to put myself in a position to acquire credits is what worked for me....My main issue with surveys BTW was spending 15 mins on one only to be booted saying "Thank you for your time we will look for another survey for you as you didn't qualify for this one" or some other statement like that...
But I have no problem with anyone obtaining credits anyway they can be it surveys or videos at 5-15 credits at a time...Cheers to those with that kind of patience !! As a matter of fact a very good friend of mine does surveys EVERY SINGLE DAY and does not stop till he gets the max credits allowed for that day!! He gets that peanut labs message that says "Whew ...looks like we've run out of surveys at this time".....He has bank rolled over 100k on JUST surveys alone (I think its amazing myself!!) He does nothing else to earn credits and has never spent a dime of real money LOL....And unlike myself he is smart enuff to play level 33 Callays only!!
