Thanks for posting this! I registered today. I love participating in these sorts of things.
For any UK members out there who aren't already aware, there's a similar quality of service survey that is done for the Royal Mail. If you manage to secure a place on it then each month you receive 2 packs of standard 1st class stamps. Kinda dull, but useful. More exciting though is that every quarter you'll be sent special commemoratives. Last month I received the Star Wars set issued when 'The Force Awakens' came out in the cinema. I was over the moon!

Neat info! Thanks for sharing!


I'm doing this in Australia. I registered through the same website. Mail comes from all around the world, and I have to register online the date and other information about the item when it arrives, and return the transponders to Germany. Pre-addressed and stamped envelopes and stamps were sent to me. For my efforts, I get $8 paid into my PayPal account each month. It seems they need both senders and recipients for the survey, so I imagine that they would need people in the USA to receive the mail as I am doing in Australia. You can also have the money donated to Médecins Sans Frontières if you prefer which I may do when I break my online buying habit.
