Anyone else have that Google Opinion Rewards app?

You do little surveys and it gives you credit on the Google shop. I spend it on films. The most common question it asks goes like this:

Have you visited any of the following recently?

□ Industrial Farming Supplies Warehouse
□ Bernard Matthews' Killing Floor
□ The Stygian Crypt of Torment
□ Tesco
□ Bathyspheres Direct
□ WOLF
□ Sarasaland

They blocked my account once for lying too much. Basically tracks you (google maps does anyway) and it gives you questions like WHERE YOU AT ICELAND YESTERDAY? and I think it cross references it

I lie in minor ways. I don't like them asking demographic stuff. Knowing I've been the pub is so fuckin what stuff though

Oh right. That's grim.

Like when a detective asks a suspect an easy question and then is all like 'yeah, I already know where you were yesterday at 3pm, I just want to see what YOU say'

Had race management duty with the sailing club a few weeks ago. The next day google popped up a notification on my phone asking me to identify yesterday's random 4 hour track back and forth across the lake so my "timeline" would be accurate. <throws phone in lake>

Just checked and since starting I've had £63. Mostly for confirming I've used my debit card rather than credit or cash. Spent mostly on replacing old albums.

Bully for you.

I have massive reservations about helping companies like amazon and Google with this shit. Google are paying black people to submit photos to better train it's facial recognition systems, because they usually rely on contrast they're typically less good with black or really pale people in poor lighting. Sounds fine until you realise both Google and amazon do some pretty shady stuff with law enforcement and 'threat modelling' already. In other words it's not in people's interests to help them.

I told Google about my life and earned a rental of the film UPGRADE. It's about the perils of the unchecked integration of technology into our lives.

i have had this app for almost 3 years and have made about a fiver.

i sold my soul to the devil in exchange for 17p. he wanted to know if i had been to matalan in the past 3 months, and i'm weak, so i told him. now i have 17p, but at what cost? he knows now that i have not recently been to matalan. and that is Obviously Bad.

I've been using this for almost a year and have found that once you've amassed about £3 it stops offering you surveys.
That or it's bored of me.

I've found it pays more for information that's perhaps "valuable".

A lot of the 6p "rewards" were like, Are you a parent? No.

But if you answer yes, it leads to more questions, like with the location ones it'll ask if you paid by cash or card. That'll pay multiples of 6p!!

So you're rewarded not for telling the truth, but for divulging info. Oh, it sounds so obvious now I've typed it out
