$20 For Your Thoughts, Truckers

Update: This survey is no longer active

You’ve heard the saying “a penny for your thoughts.” Well, I say screw that. But how about 20 bucks for your thoughts?! Count me in! Well all you have to do is take an online survey where you answer some questions about your life as a trucker. This offer is available to all truckers; whether you’re an owner-operator, lease-purchaser, or company driver.

Yeah, yeah, another survey. I hear ya. But trust me; I just took it and I can tell you it’s painless. Better hurry though. Once their quota is filled, your chance at the $20 is gone forever.

This online survey¬†from L.E.K. Consulting¬†will take you about 25 minutes to complete. At the end, you’ll enter your contact info and they’ll send you a Visa gift card worth $20. It’s that easy. Oh and none of your answers will be associated with you personally. They’ll take all the data gathered from everyone and lump it all together into what I can only assume resembles a giant lump of monkey bread.

So what kinds of questions do you need to answer?

Beyond the basic demographic stuff (gender, age, income, etc.), they’re wanting to know what type of trucking you do and what expenses you have as a trucker, compared to what is covered by your employer (if you have one). They want to know what products or services are important to you and which ones you currently use or plan to use in the future. And they also want to know what types of products/services you might be interested in purchasing in the future.

So like I said, this survey is a quick and easy way to make $20 that your spouse will never know about. Feel free to spend it all on Mountain Dew and Cheetos if that’s your thing.

You know, it just dawned on me that $20 for a 25-minute survey is over $40 per hour! Sadly, that’s almost 4x what I make for an hour of detention time sitting at a grocery warehouse waiting to be unloaded.

So what are you waiting for? Take the survey now!
