Itracks Margaritaville Online Study Invitation?

Post by catsway »

We received this email:

"Hello,

Our company, Itracks, is conducting an online bulletin board discussion on behalf of Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville. This study is a great opportunity for their organization to hear directly from consumers about their recent experiences with Margaritaville's products and locations and learn how to make it better. Please be assured that we are not trying to sell you anything and are only interested in your opinions. This study is for research purposes only and the information provided is strictly confidential.

Please click the link (or copy and paste into your web browser) as soon as possible as only a limited number of participants will be accepted into the study. Those that are accepted and fully participate will receive a $50 cash incentive.

We thank you for your time, and look forward to hearing from you."


The initial survey went on to ask questions regarding number of Buffett concerts attended in the past five years, visits to Margaritaville Cafes, purchases of Margaritaville products, etc. It sounds on the up and up but we are always skeptical of these kinds of emails. Has anyone else received or signed up for the survey?

Seems strange, I would be leery, too. Why not go to Margaritaville.com and ask if it's legit?

I got it, I took it, I qualified... I can use the money. Hoping for the best, but curious what Margaritaville's response would be.

I went to the Itracks, Inc. web site. Definitely legit. Just another marketing research firm. I guess the folks out there in Margaritaville, Inc. want some feedback regarding their services, products and market segment. If they want my opinion, I suppose I'll share it with them. My first comment will be to get rid of the cheesy fabrics in their t-shirts and go with something a little more sturdy. I hate flimsy t-shirts. Not with my 50 something man-breasts. :o

I got it, took the survey, got as far as saying I haven't been to a Buffett show in five years (my last one was in 2002) and that's all she wrote.

I went back and checked through my emails; I got one too but my email filter directed it right to the "spam" mailbox.  I rescued it and started to take it; apparently if you complete the questionnaire to their satisfaction you would be invited to take part in some sort of online board/discussion running from Tuesday 9/4 thru Thursday 9/6.  Anyhow, I got to the same point Remittance Man did where they asked how many shows you've been to.  I'd been to Alpine Valley back in 2009 so clicked on the "0 - 3" level and at that point got a polite thank you and a message saying the survey was completed.  Apparently they only want to talk with the hardcore concert-goers.

Anybody who did go through the rigamarole and ends up taking part in this, please let us all know what happened after Thursday, OK?

I checked "none" on the list of Margaritaville stuff purchased.

And immediately got booted out with a "thank you for participating".
