I've received quite a bit of Zen in the past by completing surveys and free offers. But only through SponcerPay! Ignore PeanutLabs offers at all costs! Just refresh the "Earn Zen" page until you see the SponcerPay logo!
90% of SponcerPay's surveys etc work and pay out Zen... I've yet to receive any Zen from the ones that PeanutLabs offer and personally think they are scam merchants!
It says clearly in the credit card offers: ZEN only paid out for approved applications.
As for the survey offers...unless you know the precise data that the particular provider that PL was contracted to do the survey for, who knows what reason you were disqualified for? The marketing people that run surveys are specifically looking for specific demographics. Nothing illegal to it...if you don't fit what they're looking for (and of course, such is not disclosed), then you won't qualify for the survey.
Insurance offers...if you're not actually interested in receiving an insurance quote, they won't pay out. Simple as that. Keep in mind, too, it's a quote, not an obligation to buy.
Honestly, the chances of getting approved to take part in those surveys is so low, you're better off just grinding Dil for the Zen. Plus, the downloads the partners offer have a very large chance of installing spyware on your computer, and ultimately, the low payouts don't even make it worth the trouble of doing any of the 'earn ZEN' offers.

I suppose it's down to a matter of luck or giving bogus info, but I often get to complete the surveys and get my Zen. Most of my C-store purchases were funded in this fashion.
Some surveys ask if you or your relative work in XYZ industries - they actually want to ELIMINATE those from the survey e.g. for an alcohol consumption survey they prefer not to hear from those working in bottle shops or marketing. Occasionally, it does pay to go contrary to their system.
I work in Marketing and i cant tell u that filling in a survey that ask for your number will be resold to company's like the one i work for, so if u are called over and over again for things and want to know know where they got your info that's where.
