Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why do you need all this information about me?

    • ​Most surveys are targeted to people who own certain types and brands of yard maintenance equipment or in certain demographic categories. By knowing about you and the equipment you own, we'll only send surveys that are relevant to you. 

  • What will you do with my information?

    • We collect your email address so we can send you invitations to surveys, to send you rewards, and to inform you if you are the winner of one of our drawings. We collect your name only so we can personalize these messages. We will never use your name or email address for any other purpose, nor will we give or sell your information to another party.

  • What companies are sponsoring this program?

    • The sponsors of this program are major manufacturers of products used to maintain your yard and outdoor areas of your home. We don't name them because knowing who the sponsors are may possibly bias the answers a network member gives because of previous opinions they may have about those brands. We are looking for open, honest feedback from everyone so that we can gauge peoples' true feelings and perceptions. 

  • What's in it for me?

    • ​Most importantly, taking our surveys gives you an opportunity to help manufacturers of yard maintenance equipment tailor products to your wants and needs. This feedback is important to them - otherwise we wouldn't be asking for it! Beyond that, you'll be paid for every survey you complete as well as entered into our monthly drawings for a $100 Amazon gift card. 

  • How much do I get paid for each survey?

    • For short surveys (i.e. those that take 1 to 3 minutes to complete) you'll earn $1 in Amazon store credit, for medium surveys (3 to 5 minutes) $2, and for longer surveys (5 to 8 minutes) $3.

  • What are my odds of winning the monthly drawing for $100?

    • Odds of winning the drawing depend upon how many people have participated in a survey in a given month​, but odds on average are 1 in 400 (much better than playing the lottery!)

  • How often will I be invited to participate?

    • ​This depends on your demographic profile and the types of products you own. You will be asked to provide some sort of feedback at least once every three to four months, but may be asked more often than that.

  • How do I update my information?

    • In the event you ​need to update any of the information you submitted when signing up for BackYard Buzz, simply send us a message below including what information has changed.
