I've been doing the survey since, oh, the end of September.

I think, but may be off by a little, gotten somewhere around 5000 zen from all the surveys.
I've bought master keys, character slots, costume packs. All form survey zen.

Now I'm working on the zen needed to buy the Vesta triple pack when it comes out. I just under halfway there.

Now, I do supplement it with selling dilithium, but that is small potatoes. Then as a Gold member, my monthly stipend helps boost it at the beginning of the month.

I usually stay clear of the Free offers, as these are the ones that generate spam.

I stick to the surveys, and its almost even that ones give me zen, and ones don't.

Oh, I've done a few surveys where it finished, and didn't pay anything.

I contacted Peanut Labs, and they resolved the matter in 24 hours or less, not bad.

All in all, the surveys are the way to go. Be patient, and take your time. They do pay out and if you are persistent, you can get a good amount of zen out of them.

Thank you wraenia, for reminding me. I haven't played STO for almost a year now, lots of family problems and three jobs just to stay in my house, and I did do about 25 surveys back then for free Zen. I had received 270 Zen for my troubles back then but my spam box is overloaded with 200-300 spam daily. Yes, I believe that Peanut Labs did sell my Email address to other markets which resulted in the receipt of increases phone calls (yes I am on the Do-Not-Call-List for my state) that quickly hang up or start cursing when I tell them about the do not call list, increased spam Emails and even increase phone and Email scams. Free Zen is not worth the hassle in my eyes. I can't afford the Zen the honest way, so I'll just do without.

And about wasting time, there's nothing you can do about that except for not doing these surveys.
NOTHING is for free.. you pay for it one way or the other... best to be smarter than the scam artists.

Nah its rubbish.
If I complete anything on Peanut Labs It hardly ever works.
Sponsor Pay is ok though.
Its pretty much instant and you only have to watch videos, and even then you dont actually watch them you just let them play and get your zen.
I can get about 100 zen an hour doing that.

Not much really, but its free and it builds up. And if you play the exchange right, you can get more back.

All in all though, its very rare you get sponsorpay as opposed to Peanut Labs.
Just avoid the activeyou and selected winner stuff because they never work.

In fact I don't... in my experience you always get what you pay
